    Couldn't finish the whole video that was kind of sad to watch. Although I'm sure that guy wouldn't like it when others pity him, he would rather have people show him respect and humbleness for not letting anything stop him from doing what he wants to do.

    Thanks Austinite video is very inspirational. If he can work out with his disability there shouldn't be any reason for people not to work their asses off in the gym.

    Great stuff Austinite. Props to Scott for looking beyond limitations and seeing possibilities. Some people make excuses, some make progress. Scott is definitely the latter.

    You can't spell challenge without change and Scott looked beyond his challenges - respect!!!!

    Take a look at the guy in the middle of the photo below. People who say it can't be done should not interrupt those doing it!

    Great post Austinite!

    My cousin is the exact same way as the guy in the video. She was told she would never walk and yet she can walk circles around the very doctors that told her she couldn't. She has been dieting and working out, and has lost about 50 pounds! She is my inspiration! It kills me when people say they just can't do something, yet never put forth the effort in the first place to even try to accomplish something. Thanks again Aust for reminding me!

    Too bad god loved you more than this guy that he allowed you to live a perfect life while this guy struggles with the simplest of tasks.

    I know what you mean but when you really think about what you said, it sounds like shit.

    Awesome video. Had to stop it halfway through. Such a bigger man than I am.

    dang, I think what you just said was worse, lol. Jeez man, he had great intentions with what he said. And I don't even believe in God.

    Yeah I'm sure that what I said sounded much worse. I know he had good intentions. Literally though, it's like what, god didn't love this guy but he loved you? Haha don't mean to start a debate and i wasn't trying to bash or anything. On second thought, should have probably just my mouth shut.1
