“Don’t let anybody tell you you can’t do something…” Meet Inspirational Adaptive Athlete Zack Ruhl and Stop Your Excuses

You’ve probably seen Zack Ruhl’s photos floating around Instagram or our adaptive athlete photo round ups, but you may not know much about him. Well, that’s about to change. This video is a must watch!

An amputee CrossFit trainer is teaching other disabled people how to push their bodies to the limit. Twenty-six-year-old Zack Ruhl can impressively bench press 420 lbs and do pushups in his wheelchair. Last year he opened up his own CrossFit gym where he offers free classes to other amputees. Zack was born without thigh bones and brittle bones in his legs so doctors amputated them over the course of his life.
