On July 3rd, 2011, CrossFit South Denver member Aaron was involved in a boating accident that left him in a ten-day coma, and paralyzed from the neck down. Over the last year, Aaron has re-learned how to walk, returned to martial arts training, and has been doing CrossFit for three months. The gains he has made while training at CrossFit South Denver are truly astounding. He has lost 15-20 lbs. of body weight, and has gone from using multiple bands for pull-ups to using no bands at all. When in elements, Aaron was cleaning 65# and overhead squatting the 15# bar. Aaron now routinely cleans 135#+, deadlifts 225#+ (he recently did “Diane” at Rx!), and overhead squats 95#+. We are all very proud of Aaron and the strides he has made, and we want to thank him for being an inspiration to us all. If you see Aaron around the gym, congratulate him on a job well done!
