Chris "Stouty" Stoutenburg suffered a severe spinal cord injury which forced him into a wheelchair. He now focuses on adapting crossfit workouts for other athletes with similar restrictions. Chris holds 2 gold medals, 1 silver, and 1 bronze for competing the Canada Men's Wheelchair Basketball.
Chris has made it his mission to help other athletes who've suffered from similar injuries by opening a crossfit gym and creating a website to showcase crossfit exercises for athletes in a wheelchair.
Quotes from the show:
"The thing I like about crossfit is that everybody's suffering together. You might even be dreading the workout a little bit, but when you finish, everybody is excited. They might not have any breath left to express it, but it's a great community. It's exciting to do new challenges."
