Throughout my professional life, it’s been extremely difficult to stay consistent with an exercise regimen due to constant business travel. In late 2014, overstressed, and overweight, I met Danny and joined Soul. While I made progress in learning some of the rudiments of weightlifting and working on my endurance, the travel schedule was still a challenge as I’m usually on a plane a few times a month. Consistency was still hard to achieve.
Then the worst thing happened; I tore my ACL and MCL on my right leg outside of the gym and had to have surgery. For an entire year, I couldn’t do anything exercise related other than physical therapy for the repaired knee. After completing my therapy, my knee was functional but I was broken— plantar fasciitis, a weak core, and muscle imbalances left me unable to do basic things such as running much less even handle a barbell.
