Demi Bagby is one hell of a girl. Her bouncing back story is inspirational to say the least.
Demi is a Crossfit athlete, bodybuilder and a fitness based social media celebrity.
Her bubbly enthusiasm and ever smiling, laughing face is contagious to say the least.
She now has over 2 million followers on Instagram and inspires others to follow their fitness goals every day. She seems to be living a dream life right now but she is very sweet and humble on the inside.
Demi was born on January 10th, 2001 in San Diego, which makes her only 19 years old!
She has appeared in a Facebook Q and A session as well.
However, the truth is that things were not always smooth sailing for Demi. She tried her best to get in to soccer teams, which was her passion since childhood. But owing to her short height, she found it difficult to get a place in the first teams or starting elevens.
At the age of 13, she decided to try her hand at cheerleading and met with a gruesome accident when she was tossed high in to the air and was dropped instead of being caught. The resultant impact left her with a broken back.
She was paralyzed for some time and most doctors told her that she will never be able to walk again. This could be a traumatic experience for anyone else on Earth and a loss of hope for most people on Earth. But not for Demi. She decided to use this to bounce back instead of wallowing in self-pity.
While lying on the hospital bed she read all about Crossfit, Calisthenics, watched videos online and read books on the subject.
As soon as she got out of the hospital, she made her way to the first Crossfit studio that she could find and in her own words, described it as the coolest experience and place she could ever imagine.
Demi then took to Crossfit like a fish takes to the water and worked day and night to get better at Crossfit and Calisthenics. She excelled at her newfound passion and soon created and Instagram page, which skyrocketed in popularity quite dramatically.
In her own words, “Strive to be the best version of you. You are limitless. You are truly capable of anything your mind can conceive. Don’t be afraid to push the loose boundaries known as the impossible”.
She lives by these words and sets a great example with her continuous endeavors to get better and be a fitness role model for women, girls as well as senior citizens over 70, who have confessed on social media that they are deeply inspired by her grit, determination and bounce-back attitude.
She is also known as the tumbling queen for her superb backflipping and cartwheeling abilities. Her workout videos are posted in gyms, on the beach and in gymnastic studios. She has hit the right chords with people from all over the world including America, the U.K, India, Spain, South America and has fans all over the world!
To conclude, we can see from Demi’s determination, never give up attitude that absolutely anything is possible if we put our heart and soul into something we love doing and also do it with love, enthusiasm, laughter and lots of positive energy!
