Just because you have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or have had an ostomy, there is no reason why you can’t lead a normal life and enjoy exercise. In this Intense Intestines film shared in 2012, we see Brian Phillip Greenberg doing some pretty physically demanding boxing and kickboxing training routines.
The film shows Brian being taken through his paces in his second workout since he gave up training regularly five years earlier. It illustrates that you can do anything you want if you have Crohn’s disease, even if you’ve had an ostomy. Exercising and eating a healthy diet are the best things you can do for your overall health, and will help you to keep your IBD under control.
