A few years ago you would have found me deep in the trenches of competitive CrossFit trying to attain the title of Fittest Man on Earth. I thought I was invincible, until I was proven otherwise.
Within a single month, I suffered two major injuries—one to my right meniscus and the other to my left pec. To say life hit me hard is an understatement. I saw sponsorships fly out the window, medical bills rack up, and even some of my closest friends abandon me. But watching the identity I had built as professional athlete disappear was the hardest thing for me to grasp.
However, I knew there was more to me than just being an athlete. That through my athletic endeavors I became an inspiration to many—and from the bottom of my heart I want to say, thank you. Now it’s my turn to give something back to all of you for the years of constant support.
