Being diagnosed with such a complex disease such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be extremely complicated. You feel and think that your life will change drastically and you might even wonder if you’ll have to stop doing the things that you like–such as sports–just because of your new health condition. But that’s not necessarily the case.
To prove that, meet these guys: the Intense Intestines. In these videos shared on their YouTube channel in 2012, Intestines Foundation founder and president, Brian Phillip Greenberg overcomes his Crohn’s disease and ostomy with circuit training along with boxing and kickboxing.
“We can all overcome Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and ostomies. We just have to try in our own way. Never stay quiet!”
