Legless fitness coach, 28-year-old Du Hai from central China's Hunan province has been inspiring thousands of people online with his smile, personality and never say die attitude.

"Fitness has given me a lot of help and made me more confident so that I gradually have a great passion for fitness."

This fitness instructor, who usually spends more than two hours training every day, lost his legs in an accident when he was just five, but has never let that hold him back in life or in sport.

"I hope that the majority of disabled people can come out [from home] and go to the gym. Even if we don't have a complete body, we should have a healthy body," Du Hai said.

"As long as you keep an optimistic attitude, you think that you are no different from others, and you can live your wonderful life as well," he added.

About a year ago he had the idea of uploading some fitness videos on the Chinese version of Tiktok Douyin and now he has gained over 80 thousand fans on the app.

"Every time I uploaded a new video on Douyin, my fans will leave comments saying 'Come on Du Hai, you are the best,'" Hai remarked.
