Former Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page Helps Overweight Disabled Vet Run Again

Before I get into any of the heart warming and super awesome parts of this video… let me just focus on one thing that the story glosses over a bit. Diamond Dallas Page… DDP… owns a Yoga studio?!?

That is just not something I would have ever expected to hear.

Here’s the story in a nutshell:
Arthur Boorman was a Paratrooper in the Gulf War. As it turns out, jumping out of a plane repeatedly is not great for your knees or back. For fifteen years he suffered and gained weight and doctors told him that he’d never walk unassisted again. Enter DDP and his DDP Yoga system… the rest you’ve sort of got to see for yourself. It is pretty amazing.

Official Video Description:
If this story can inspire someone you know, please share it with them!

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try — he couldn’t do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.

Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey - he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.

Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP’s specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility — which gave him hope that maybe someday, he’d be able to walk again.

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck - you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.

Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams - whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!
