What's your excuse for not getting in shape?
It can't be getting stabbed in the heart and almost dying three times on the operating table, because even that's not a good enough excuse anymore.
That's what happened to 22-year-old Kieran Quinlan when he was 17, and it didn't stop him.
Today, he's competing as a bodybuilder and living the life he nearly lost.
Kieran explained his incredible story in a Facebook post.
According to Daily Mail, Kieran recently placed second in his first bodybuilding competition.
Although he used to be self-conscious about his chest scar and only worked out at night so no one could see it, Kieran is proud to show the world he fully overcame the unprovoked attack.
Kieran's transformation is proof the human heart is stronger than we think.
Now, he can flex on anybody who doubted he'd be able to recover.
Every time he goes out and trains, he's an inspiration.
Kieran shares his story everywhere he goes and teaches many young kids a lesson he had to learn the hard way.
He visits schools around England with the Knife Awareness Project, a group that teaches students about knife crime.
When he's not doing that, he's hitting the gym.
I've been saying it for years, but working out in your underwear is LIT.
Just remember, kids, there's room for improvement every day.
