Never Ever Give Up! (The Truly Inspiring Story Of Arthur Boorman)

May 22, 2012

This is one of those stories so inspiring and powerful, that it will have an impact on your life.
When I stumbled on it for the first time last night I almost couldn’t believe it. I watched the video over and over again.
This is the tale of American paratrooper Arthur Boorman, who returned injured from the Gulf War. One too many jumps led to chronic back and knee problems, and the doctors told him that he’d never walk again without assistance.
For 15 years Boorman believed them, and gained weight to 297 lbs because of inability to move.
But, at 47 years old, the US veteran discovered yoga in a newspaper article.
He started practising a particular sequence of non-impact yoga, and in just months he dropped an astonishing 140 lbs.
The improvements he made in a very short period of time have been so incredible that the Arthur-after is a complete different person from the Arthur-before.

This is proof that yoga (or, I would rather say, exercise in general) can be really the solution to many (if not all) problems.
People tend to forget this. It just takes some willpower and the real changes in life are just around the corner.
I honestly hope you’ll be inspired by this story in the same way I’ve been. Because it is truly amazing!

The Iron You


  1. Hi there, I liked the video a lot. But I was just wondering how is it even possible to lose that many pounds in just 6 months? It would be about 16 pounds lost per month.
