Chris Powell has got to be one of the most inspirational faces of fitness I've ever seen on TV. As the trainer on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition, I absolutely love tuning in to watch him push and motivate these people far beyond anything they could have imagined. Just watching him inspires me, not only for my own personal fitness, but as a personal trainer myself. I find so many of his qualities admirable!
This young man is the picture of determination and inspiration. After having his legs amputated as a baby, Oscar Pistorius never gave up. Now, this year, he became the first amputee track athlete at the London Olympics. Amazing.
