JOPLIN, MO.--- A Diamond man is inspiring you to get back into the gym and not give up on those New Year's resolutions. Dakota Vincent was born with cerebral palsy. A few years ago, he underwent a surgery that will help him walk. He trained for months and has gotten so strong, he's now a personal trainer at Power House Gym in Joplin. Vincent received a lot of help from the CP center in Joplin and is selling hearts for a dollar to raise money for the center. He says if you set your mind to something, it can happen. 

"Keep on going and try your best at whatever you do," said Dakota Vincent, Personal Trainer. 

"You can do anything if you try. If you don't take that first step, you're never going to get there," said Christy Graham, CP Executive Director. 

You can pick up the dollar hearts until the end of February at Powerhouse Gym. It's located near the Northpark Mall at 530 S. Northpark Lane. For more information, click here
