By the beginning of 2011, the combination of no exercise, being sedentary at work, and overindulging in prepared foods lead me down the path of reaching the highest weight of my life. I spent 2011 and 2012 turning that around by incrementally doing more cardio and strength training and changing my diet. By early 2013, I shed 70 pounds.

I had also reached a serious plateau.

I was spending an intense 50 minutes in the gym 6 or 7 times a week, and I could barely maintain the weight loss let alone lose the additional 55 pounds I had hoped. It was physically exhausting and mentally discouraging. I tried pushing through for 2 months to no avail.

I have always been a fan of professional wrestling, especially in the late 90s when DDP was hitting the Diamond Cutter out of nowhere (BANG!) and when the nWo was taking over (too sweet!). When I first heard DDP was doing yoga, I can’t say I was at all interested. The “macho-factor” was a big part of my being nonplussed, but, with a number of recurring back and neck injuries, all of the bending and contorting I associated with yoga didn’t sound like a fun time to me.

One morning in February 2013, I purchased the WWE Home Video, “The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro Volume 2”, hosted by Diamond Dallas Page who wore his signature “DDP YOGA” t-shirt. At the end of the feature, DDP signed off with “don’t forget to do your DDP YOGA.” Around the same time, videos of DDP helping Jake “The Snake” Roberts and “The Bad Guy” Scott Hall through DDP YOGA and the Accountability Crib were circulating on the internet. Some additional digging on YouTube led me to the remarkable transformation videos of Arthur Boorman and Stacey Morris.

My curiosity was piqued.

What could DDP YOGA do for me?


Within a month of supplementing my routine with DDP YOGA, I had lost an additional 20 pounds. I incorporated more of the DDP YOGA workouts and decreased the time spent at the gym. I was getting stronger, more flexible, and my weight kept decreasing. After six months of DDP YOGA , I was mere pounds away from my goal weight. This was astonishing to me because I was spending a lot less time working out, and I was seeing tremendous results.

When I started DDP YOGA, I could barely do a pushup without modification. Less than a year later, my shoulder and core strength has developed to the point where I can hold a plank position for over 3 minutes, and I can perform multiple consecutive sets of DDP’s 10 second slow motion pushups.

At the beginning, I couldn’t reach my toes from a standing position. Not only can I now fully bend forward, but I can also grab my foot and hold it out while standing straight with no struggle.

And those recurring back and neck problems I mentioned? They haven’t bothered me one bit since starting DDP YOGA.

I’m at my strongest and most flexible ever, and I’m able to maintain my goal weight by keeping up with DDP YOGA.

I haven’t been to the gym in 3 months!
