Diamond Dallas Page began his wrestling career at thirty-five years and blew his back out at forty years old. He used Yoga to heal his back and become a WWE champ at forty-three. He's pitching DDP Yoga in Shark Tank Season 5.
DDP Yoga takes core and strength balance to a new level
His flexibility using DDP Yoga takes core strength and balance to a whole new level. Dallas helped Arthur at 5'6″ 290lbs; he lost the braces, and 140lbs in ten months. He runs into the Shark Tank.
At fifty-three years old he can do the full splits after not being able to move without braces and had a broken back. He found Dallas on the internet.
The first year they sold $2.6 million and had just broken $3 million and netted $890,000 after paying themselves. Dallas and Steve are going to put the money from the Sharks towards the first mobile application.
They have created a documercial, and they are now in testing.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about DDP Yoga
Mark Cuban says there will be a transition and will become more challenging to sell dvds. It is too high a risk profile company for him, and so he is out.
Daymond John has invested in some fitness brands including Billy Blank Jr, and Cowboy Ryan. It is a tremendous drain on his time, so he is out.
Kevin O'Leary doesn't think that 5% is enough and he is feeling 50%. He fights on should he do it or not. He decides to pass on the deal.
Barbara Corcoran does not like businesses that invest in trends, and she fears that your big hit is already hit it's stride, so she is out.
Robert Herjavec thinks they are going to dump all their money they made into their infomercial, so he is out.
DDP Yoga after Shark Tank?
Continues to market online. DDP Yoga's website is nicely done and shows many of their success stories. I have to say, that after many of the health issues that I have recently experienced, I am tempted to try out the DDP Yoga program. I would love to have the flexibility and healthy results.
