Multiple sclerosis (MS) takes different forms and is categorized into four different types.
While some view this condition as a "disability," but David Lyons knows an MS diagnosis is not a sentence to be bound to a wheelchair.
Diagnosed at age 47, David went through a period of darkness and doubt about his future. He lost the muscle mass he'd worked so hard to build in his many years in the gym. Ultimately, he decided that was not the future he wanted to live.
Now, he's helping others with MS and other conditions to meet their fitness and lifestyle goals. In his book, Everyday Health and Fitness with Multiple Sclerosis: Achieve Your Peak Physical Wellness While Working with Limited Mobility, David provides solutions for overcoming mental hurdles, nutrition fundamentals to properly fuel workouts, easily adaptable exercises, and motivation. As Amazon describes it, the book is a "road map for every person who wants to conquer a disease or disability, and just get moving."
David also co-founded the MS Fitness Challenge (MSFC) with his wife Kendra in order to help others with MS.
Listen as David joins Dr. Bond to share his own journey through MS and the great work the MSFC is doing.
