My name is Josh Dillaberry I am 34 years old, I have been working out since I was 12. I started wheelchair bodybuilding in 1994-1998, took time off and came back in 2004. I was born with cerebral palsy. I am able to walk and stand for short periods of time. But when I go to the grocery store or somewhere I will be on my feet for long periods I use my wheelchair.

When I was born in 1972 they told my parents I was going to be a vegetable and not going to be able to do anything. I was born with water on the brain, I have had about 25 different surgeries in my life hopefully no more. I really enjoy working out and competing in wheelchair bodybuilding it is in my blood. I got married in 1998 and we have one daughter that is now 6 going on 7. I hope to continue bodybuilding as long as I can, until I just do not want to do it anymore.
