Inspiration Station: Meet Powerlifter, Jon Stoklosa

Every now and again, we get the chance to highlight stories that emphasize both the positive influence of the gym in people's lives and the incredible strength of the human spirit. This week we get to thank Delaware Online for this excellent piece on Jon Stoklosa.

Stoklosa, 31, is a powerlifter who happens to have Down Syndrome. But as you will see in this video, Jon has set himself goals in the gym and has worked his tail off to meet them like everyone else. We encourage you to read his full profile at Delaware Online to really get to know the man and his family, or watch the video below in case you need some inspiration before hitting the gym this weekend.

Now, what's your excuse?
