What is DDPYoga?
Enter Diamond Dallas Page (DDP). The professional wrestler? Yes, the professional wrestler.
In case you don’t know Diamond Dallas Page was the WCW World Television Champion, United States Heavyweight Champion, World Tag Team Champion, and World Heavyweight Champion. He was involved with a long-standing feud with (my favorite) Randy “The Macho Man” Savage. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017.

Diamond Dallas Page suffered a serious back injury in 1998. He ruptured his L4/L5 disks in his back. He was told he would never wrestle again.
Not content to quit, he began looking for a way to return to the ring. On the suggestion of his then-wife Kimberly, he began doing Yoga. Yoga became his way of rehabilitating his back. His rehabilitation proved successful and he eventually returned to wrestling.
But he wanted to share his success with others. Thus, he developed an American version of “Ashtanga Style Yoga” or Power Yoga. He called his first version Yoga for Regular Guys. He has since rebranded the workout DDPY or Diamond Dallas Page Yoga.
DDPYoga is billed as a non-impact workout that combines traditional Yoga with Dynamic Resistance. It seeks to elongate and stretch muscles to increase flexibility. It uses dynamic resistance to build strength and provide a cardio workout. Important to the program is a wrap around heart monitor used to keep participants within the target heart range.
But getting healthy is not just doing physical activity. It requires a healthy lifestyle. To this end, DDP has incorporated a plan for healthy eating. Basically, it is a combination of eating clean with a regimented eating schedule like those used by bodybuilders and professional athletes.
All this will work if someone is able to mentally commit to it. Knowing this is most people’s major obstacle, DDP has focused most of his recent efforts on helping people become mentally strong. He recently published his second book Positively Unstoppable: The Art of Owning It.
In conjunction with the book, he has rolled out his Positively Unstoppable Challenge. Participants have a chance to win $1 Million by registering, explaining their goals and proving they are unstoppable. If you think you can beat me for the million dollars, you can enter here.
But does DDPY really work? If you didn’t watch the Author Boorman video above, do it now. If that doesn’t convince you, maybe my personal story will.
