Bob Wieland’s life sparkles with courage and greatness. Born and raised in Greenfield, Wisconsin, he was an all-star athlete well on his way to a professional baseball career. Yet his life of almost-certain success was forever interrupted by a mortar round in Vietnam. While attempting to rescue a fallen comrade, he suffered the tragedy of losing both his legs. For many, a crippling injury of this magnitude would snuff out any hope. But in the face of overwhelming odds, Bob Wieland chose to focus on the challenges and victories he could see in his future. In his words, “I lost my legs, not my heart.”

Harnessing that same commitment and energy which had driven him to success in athletics, Bob Wieland began to rebuild his life, One Step At A Time, which is quite appropriately the title of his autobiography.

Bob Wieland is a man who speaks about his challenges and victories, and addresses the central theme of his life, “Achievement And The Triumph Over Odds.” His passionate and motivating life refreshes and equips the listener to achieve higher aspirations. His personal and uncluttered style inspires individuals where it matters most, at the heart.

As a nationally known speaker, Bob Wieland has accepted thousands of invitations to share his story. He has been featured on numerous occasions on many nationally televised programs and in the leading print media.

As a member of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, his numerous honors include 1994 People Magazine's “One of the Six Most Amazing Americans of the Past 20 Years,” and the prestigious Victory Award. Bob Wieland's personal accomplishments include his walk across America (3 years, 8 months & 6 days); the only double amputee to complete the grueling Ironman Triathalon in Kona, Hawaii; and former world record holder in the bench press with a best lift of 507 pounds.
