When I was 21 years old, I dove into shallow water and fractured my 5th and 6th vertebrae, the result being at first that I was paralyzed from the waist down and unable to walk. After a few weeks, I took my first steps and was on the road to a recovery that was pretty much hopeless. It is amazing what the spine governs in the body; just about everything, including losing strength, flexibility, balance and coordination among other problems. Looking back the thing that was most effected was my spirit. My spirit was crushed and I did not believe I would ever regain my spirit, my energy and my belief in my abilities.
I attained a CSCS personal trainer certificate from the NSCA and eventually earned my black belt in BJJ. After leaving Jiu-Jitsu school, my instructor sent me a note saying to some effect, “You have a good spirit.” The instant I read the note I was inspired to write this work. Martial arts lifted my spirits, I knew that, and I wanted to find a way to share the euphoria with people from all walks of life and help those with all types of physical conditions to feel good.
The best examples that I can think of for leading a healthy lifestyle are Jack LaLanne and Paul and Patricia Bragg. They possessed uncontained joy, enthusiasm and a zest for life. This is what we want to ignite and give life to, and make simple and as easy as 1 2 3.
