Watch this motivating video of Stevie Zee a bodybuilder from Portland, Oregon with cerebral palsy. Stevie started bodybuilding 15 years ago because, as he said, “I didn’t know what to do with myself.” He trains hard and has a strict diet. He competed in his first show last year and he said it was a personal achievement. Apparently, the organizers of the show agreed because they presented him with an inspiration award that they called the “Steve Zee Award.”
