Overcoming MS challenges on the road to fitness
  1. Ryan Mills, of Ithaca, Michigan, recently reached out to me as he was starting a 90-day fitness challenge at his local gym. Ryan, 41, has had multiple sclerosis (MS) for nearly seven years, and he was ready to make a change in his life. We talked about life with MS, working out, nutrition, and much […]
  2. What a year 2016 was. I was honored as a finalist in both the Health Advocate Hero and Lifetime Achievement awards by patient community site WEGOHealth and received the Lifetime Fitness Inspiration Award from the Global Bodybuilding Organization. Kendra, my wife, and I opened our first OptimalBody Personal Fitness facility in Murrieta, California, held several 12-week MS Fitness Challenge events nationwide, and […]
  3. I first met Darren Barnes in 2008, when he helped me train for a bodybuilding competition. At the time, I was 50 years old and had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis only a couple of years earlier. There were many who thought I was crazy, but Darren stuck with me, and in August 2009, I […]
  4. As my wife, Kendra, and I travel the country for MS Fitness Challenge (MSFC), we meet many inspiring people who have decided to take their multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis and challenge it. The MSFC is our charitable program that matches people with MS with personal trainers for a free half-hour of individualized training once a week […]
  5. It’s been more than a year since American CryoStem, a company that specializes in collecting and storing fat tissue primarily for use in cosmetic procedures, sent me to the DaVinci Centre in the beautiful Cayman Islands to be “patient zero” in a clinical study on multiple sclerosis (MS) and stem cell treatment. Before I traveled to the DaVinci […]
  6. “Wow, you don’t look like you have MS!” I’ve certainly had my share of that comment over the past 10 years of battling this disease. In the past, my usual reply was, “thanks.” But recently, I’ve decided to put my foot down on being politically correct, and these days, when I get that comment, my […]
  7. Name:​  Lisa Dasis Age:​ 55 Hometown:​ Jackson, Tennessee I’ve known Lisa Dasis for several years now, through conferences on MS and other chronic diseases that we have attended together. Lisa is a very influential advocate and blogger for multiple sclerosis (MS), and a good friend. Recently, Lisa accomplished an amazing challenge despite her battle with MS […]
  8. Let’s face it: Multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms can be devastating, debilitating, and depressing. To overcome these three “downer” D’s, I believe we must choose a positive mindset. In fact, while I cannot speak for everyone with MS — because we all deal with our condition in our own way — I believe that having a positive mindset is as […]
