The first fitness equipment in the world | Old School Bodybuilding

The first fitness equipment in the world was invented by Dr. Gustav Zander in 1892.

Fitness was part of the daily lives of people not only today but also in the past, as evidenced we have black-and-white photos of the first fitness devices. We see that every machine is designed to train a specific part of the human body (like today’s machines).

Dr. Gustav Zander was a Swedish therapist and orthopedic, who discovered the link between exercise and health.

According to Zander muscle mass in the body needs to be accumulated gradually using the exercises that people have been doing for centuries.

Never, Ever Give Up. Arthurs Inspirational Transformation


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX9FSZJu448

Arthur’s story is highlighted from the beginning, in the upcoming documentary, INSPIRED: The Movie. inspiredthemovie.com

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!
