Woody Belfort lives with a form of cerebral palsy which limits his ability to use his legs. While many may see this as a liability, he has abilities many people don't have thanks to his intense devotion to his body. He makes it a point to push his own limits, in order to inspire others to do the same! In September 2020 he published his first book, a biography, titled Why Walk When You Can Fly?
Whether it's a question of climbing a wall, or improvising a trapeze jump, all with his wheelchair still attached to him, nothing stops Woody Belfort. The universal accessibility activist currently speaks four languages. He wants to master seven. His other passions include youth education, music, festivals, and crossfit/gymnastics.
"My ultimate goal is to change the way society views people living with physical disabilities. Many people judge the limits of others subconsciously, because of their abilities. But it's up to us to define our own limits, and challenge them! It's up to us to choose what we want to accomplish, even when the idea seems out of this world."
Always in search of new challenges, his next dream is to jump from the top of the stratosphere with her wheelchair... Let's launch it into the Universe!
