Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur’s Inspirational Transformation!

Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur’s Inspirational Transformation!

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!

  1. This always makes me SOB MY EYES OUT. Cannot cope. I’ve been struggling pretty badly with weight loss myself lately, definitely considering giving this a try. I’m pretty unfit and unflexible, but after this guy, I really have no excuses.

    1. Little by little, two steps forward half a step back, three steps forward, one step back. I have lost 50 ponds on my way to to 185. you can do it.

    2. Change can happen in a moment! Make the decision to start and it’s one day at a time! In six months you’ll look back and say ” why did I put this off, I’m awesome”! Let’s go! Good luck on your journey, let me know how you’re doing!

  2. I would have walked into the doctors office and told the doctor that said he couldn’t walk and say do u remember me

    1. Big Nick Digger I feel sorry for you man your mind is so far gone and corrupted by this world you don’t recognize something beautiful when you see it

  3. Have been off work for 6 months, chiropractor care, traction, PT, spinal epidural injections, and now L4/L5 microdiscectomy to remove herniated disc off of my nerve causing excruciating leg pain. 3 weeks post op and now doin PT again, I feel like this will never end and I will never be able to go back to the gym and lift like I used to. This video definitely gives me hope to keep pushing.

  4. I just got so choked up and cried during this video. It felt good to cry tears of inspiration!
    God has Blessed you Arthur!

  5. Yoga saved my life..I remember my first class and how hard it was, but i needed something to keep my mind busy from depression. And i felt better after the first class even though it was hard. No pill can give you that feeling of peace. I couldnt believe it !! It was the only discipline that made my body and my mind stronger too.

    1. I was there too, Caro. I also weighed 325 and had nerve damage throughout my right leg and was told I would never walk without a walker. I was depressed for over 10 years…lost everything, but my family! Started yoga & nutrition in January 2015. I now weigh 182 and feel like I’m 30 yo instead of my 65. My teacher, Misty, just sent me this video….total admiration for Arthur (and DDP)….Misty is my DDP and I am honored to consider Arthur a Brother.
