Need Inspiration To Work Out?

Today’s post was sent to me by Gavin, the Gourmet Guardian. He knows I am always looking for inspirational and motivational videos to share with you. This one’s simply that – inspirational. Watch the video BEFORE you read the description…

Inspirational Video

In a Chinese modern dance competition on TV recently, one very unique couple won one of the top prizes.

The lady, in her 30’s, was a dancer who had trained since she was a little girl. Later in life, she lost her entire left arm in an accident and fell into a state of depression for a few years.

Someone then asked her to coach a Children’s dancing group. From that point on, she realized that she could in fact keep dancing. So, she started to do some of her old routines, but having lost her arm, she had also lost her balance. It took a while before she could even make simple turns and spins without falling.

Then she heard of a man in his 20’s who had lost a leg in an accident. He had also fallen into the usual denial, depression and anger type of emotional roller coaster she herself had experienced. She was determined to find him and persuade him to dance with her…

He had never danced, and to dance with one leg…. He responded as you would expect: “Are you joking with me?? No way!”

She didn’t give up, and he reluctantly agreed thinking, “I have nothing else to do anyway.”

She started to teach him dancing – it was painstaking. The two broke up a few times because he had no concept of using his muscles, control his body and knew none of the basic things about dancing.

When she became frustrated and lost patience with him, he would walk out. Eventually, they came back together and started training – seriously this time.

They hired a choreographer to design routines for them. She would fly high (held by him) with both arms (a sleeve for an arm) flying in the air. He could bend horizontally supported by one leg with her leaning on him, etc.

In the competition, as you saw, they dance beautifully and they legitimately won the competition.

When I watched this I didn’t even realize that she was missing an arm because I was focusing on the guy with only one leg.

Was it the same thing for you?
