You may have watched same old flicks to boost your momentum on doing vital workouts and other fitness programs but this fitness story will change your perspective on motivation—just enviously amazing!

From pull-ups to planks and dips, Luke Ericson may appear a typical hot bodybuilder. Wait until you take a closer glance that you get to appreciate how uniquely powerful he really is.

Ericson was born with his left arm, and most of his left lung missing. It was not so long ago when he was also diagnosed with severe scoliosis as well as Type 1 Diabetes throughout his life. Despite the physical challenges, it was in November when he and his friend Andrew Rizer (also a videographer) started documenting his rigorous workouts to prove that disabilities are never road blockers from achieving a better version of yourself.

As a child, Ericson insisted on being independent, refusing to take the easy way out. Now that he has reached adulthood, he regularly does the extreme stuff like hiking, rock climbing, swimming, surfing and training at his Hawaii home. As a matter of fact, he and his buddy are all set to break records with a new 10-minute film charting his preparation prior to the Wodapalooza Fitness Festival in Miami.
Kudos to Luke, he just might be the next one in a million trendsetters that can change the way of thinking towards a disability!

Inspite having a disability, he kept optimistic and went for the challenge of becoming fit. Later on, he was also diagnosed with severe scoliosis as well as Type 1 Diabetes throughout his life. Naturally, those didn’t stop him either!

For Ericson, there’s no other way than going up. BRAVO!
