Last year, 25-year-old Krystal Cantu had to have her arm amputated after it was injured in a horrific car accident.
Initially, she grieved for the loss of the limb, but that suffering then turned into a sense of acceptance.
“Absolutely the best thing that could have happened to me. So much good has come out of it,” she says in the video above.
Cantu is both mentally and physically strong, allowing an unfortunate circumstance to push her into this new chapter of her life. She is a Crossfit fanatic — a very good one at that.
According to Cantu, she can now weight lift more than she could with two arms.
This story of a one armed weightlifter is impressive and inspiring.
See, now you have no excuse not to hit the gym.
