Joseph was born with Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia, an incurable disease that causes mobility issues to the lower half of his body.
He is a master of overcoming adversities, challenging stereotypes, and harnessing true inner power, which is exactly what Gallant stands for.
A few years ago, Joseph challenged himself to take control of his body. He disrupted the norms, killed every excuse, pushed himself every day to lift in the gym, and that’s how he made his name in the fitness world.
Seeing his courage, strength and immense determination, Gallant invited Joseph to do a boxing challenge. Supporting him with all the equipment, products, and a personal trainer, Joseph set 3 goals:
- A sparring session
- Performing a proper squat
- Performing a deadlift
Recent times have been tough for everyone. So as a part of the community, we felt the need to ignite the much needed true power within us. The power of breaking the barriers, the power of rising up again, the power of stretching further than we can, and the power of becoming the best and embracing who we are.
Therefore, after doing our part in local charities and donations, we are now launching the Gallant Academy Programme. Partnering with organizations like Mustard Tree, and many less-known talented fitness coaches within the community, we’re ambitious to discover more heroes like Joseph.
Follow Joseph’s transformational journey of becoming a boxer on his Instagram (@cptruths). Stay tuned with Gallant to explore more inspirational stories as Gallant Academy continues to grow.
