Arthur Boorman; Gulf Veteran Transformation

  • by

Arthur Boorman is an ex-paratrooper with over 200 jumps to his name. After retiring from active duty, plagued with injuries from his time in service, he went into a downward spiral that resulted in him weighing 340lbs, being riddled with chronic pain, suffering from depression, being sleep deprived through obstructive sleep apnoea, and a gamut of other issues.
 

Desperate, Arthur reached out to ex-wrestler named Diamond Dallas Page, who had set up his own Yoga practice system (DDPY). As Arthur puts it, Dallas “called [him] out”, and ultimately became an instrumental catalyst for the change that transformed Arthur into a completely new man.

 

His subsequent transformation video posted on youtube in 2012 has garnered more than 28 million views.

 

For a deep-dive insight into Arthur's story, be sure to catch up on our first ever podcast.
