“My life’s purpose now is to motivate others. We hear inspiration a lot, especially in the case of active amputees. Inspiring is cool—and I’m grateful to do that—but motivation is different that inspiring. You can be inspired sitting on the coach, but when you’re motivated—you’re ready to take action and still change. Something has happened that’s made you ready to move. And I say hey, let’s move together.”
"Beyond Expectations: Shaping the Unseen - Power of Choice"

Since my injury, I competed at an elite level in wakeboarding competitions, became an accomplished lacrosse player, written a book, started a career as a professional motivational speaker, and formed a business and nonprofit to help raise money for children’s hospitals across the country so that others may have the exceptional quality of care like I received at UNC Children’s Hospital after my accident.
My passion for fitness became an obsession out of necessity in order for me to be able to physically accomplish my goals as a wakeboarder, lacrosse player and overall athlete. I knew that in order to be competitive in sport I must be as physically fit as possible. I must KNOW that there is no way someone has outworked me.
For many years I lifted weights and conditioned myself often. When I found CrossFit I realized it was a structured program of what I had loosely been doing already. I was hooked.
As an adaptive athlete and coach, I have a unique perspective and approach to any obstacle or challenge. I am aware of a problem but recognize the solutions. I know about difficulties, but believe they can be overcome. I see the negative, but accentuate the positive. When exposed to the worst, I expect the best. When there are reasons to complain, I prefer to smile.
This is the mindset I try to instill in all of our athletes. When it comes down to it, attitude is everything. If we can have this perspective our potential is truly endless and growth is inevitable.
Not only in fitness, but in life.
