On December 17, 2016, Alabama police officer Shelby Luttrell was shot twice off-duty at his wife’s surprise birthday party while struggling for a suspect’s gun. ¬†Shelby almost died en route to the hospital but he had the will to survive.

Only 7 months later, he comes on The Squad Room to talk about that night, his recovery, and how he was motivated to start teaching others about the importance of fitness. Shelby is the founder of Bulletproof Fitness and he is a personal trainer and coach. Find him on Instagram at @bulletproof.fitness

His recovery, and transformation after his shooting has been amazing, and to see his progress in such a short time leaves me (and you) with zero excuses about why you can’t get your act together.
