No Limitations

Ben has a great story. I tell his story to all my other clients who are self doubters. He was a DJ, he didn't know how to play one instrument. He taught himself how to use a computer program to make digital music and now he is a highly sought out producer for digital music on commercials.

The other special thing about Ben is that he was involved in a car accident. His left leg got smashed. They saved his foot but they had to fuse it to his ankle. Goodbye mobility. He had a life long obsession with martial arts but he was never able to train. Too fearful, and no school would take him because of his limitations.

Somehow he came to me and we started to work together. I was an established Los Angeles Personal Trainer but he was one of my first martial arts clients. When I filmed him working the pads with his pad holder Matt, if I didn't know him, I would have no idea he had any issues.

He doesn't let stuff like a fused ankle stop him from strengthening his mind, body, or doing kick ass moves.

If you really want something, is there anything that would stop you?
