We need to give our bodies a better chance of performing. It doesn’t matter what you’re faced with…if you make your body healthier, you are going to feel better.Jimmy Choi
Three years ago, I was introduced to Jimmy Choi through a mutual Parkinson’s friend in Chicago. Several weeks later I received an email from Jimmy, of American Ninja Warrior fame, stating that he would be in LA the following Sunday and could he speak to my PD friends. A week later, Jimmy showed up at my home with his daughter, straight from their flight to LA from Chicago. With a weeks notice, we had over 30 people in my backyard for a pot luck BBQ and mini-obstacle course set up by Alex Montaldo, whose StoPD boxing program I had been attending for several years.
Three years later, Jimmy continues to inspire people everywhere with his amazing attitude and athletic prowess. Here is the video from the original blog post from July 2018. Enjoy! You can read the entire post here.
