Today’s episode answers a question I get all the time: how did I get through TWO ACL tears and come out stronger than ever?
I was a competitive gymnast for years, and despite gymnastics being a high-risk sport, I never really had a significant injury… until one day during my sophomore year in college where I was practicing a new combination tumbling pass that ended with a double full. I told myself I was going to do one more… famous last words, right? It was on that last turn that I injured my knee.
Years later, when I was the strongest I had ever been in my life, I was competing on American Ninja Warrior, and on national television, I tore my OTHER ACL after dismounting from an obstacle.
In this episode, I’m going to talk about everything I went through tearing my ACL not once, but twice, and all the things I learned along the way that allowed me to come out of that opportunity (yes, opportunity) to learn and be stronger.
