Living with No Excuses: Noah Galloway – Episode 235

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Your excuses are no longer valid.

Noah Galloway has one arm and one leg. And he’s competed in over 100 Tough Mudder and Spartan races, 5 and 10k’s, competed in fitness competitions, and took 3rd place on “Dancing with The Stars.”

Noah is a veteran of the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army. He’s also a fitness expert, motivational speaker, and best-selling author of “Living with No Excuses: The Remarkable Rebirth of an American Soldier.”

Only 3 months in to his second tour of duty, Noah lost his left arm and left leg in an Improvised Explosive Device attack. He went from having his entire future ahead of him to losing his career in a matter of moments. After a long stint in recovery he became withdrawn and depressed. A former fitness fanatic, he was now drinking and smoking heavily and sleeping his days away. While looking at his children one day, he began to realize that he was setting the example of what a man should be. Using them as inspiration he regained his health and fitness, turned his life around and found his new calling.
