“Loss of functional legs does not mean the loss of a functional life.”
Welcome to They Became Super Heroes Podcast. In this episode I will be speaking with Kevin Ogar. Kevin is the Owner and Head Coach at Crossfit Watchtower, in Denver, CO. Kevin’s story is nothing short of inspirational. In a tragic accident, Kevin was paralyzed while performing a snatch by a ricochet barbell. Since then, Kevin has helped create Crossfit’s Specialty course; Adaptive Training. Kevin has continued to beat all odds despite his set back, and will be competing for the USA National Para-Powerlifting Team, in the regional championships. Enjoy the show.
