  • 11 jumps in 4 days. Super fun time. Good jumps and good friends.

    In Jarrett Martin’s world, the place he loves to be the most is in the sky – free-falling at 100 miles an hour with the wind in his face. But after his injury five years ago, he feared the one thing he loved the most would no longer be possible.

    Jarrett grew up in a family-run skydive business; skydiving was and still is in his blood. The notion of no longer skydiving was never something he was willing to accept, and he never had to. Within months of his injury he was back skydiving, but the AMAZING thing about Jarrett’s return isn’t just the fact that he’s back in the sky, it’s everything he’s also done and making history in the process.

    An amputee CrossFit trainer is teaching other disabled people how to push their bodies to the limit. Twenty-six-year-old Zack Ruhl can impressively bench press 420 lbs and do pushups in his wheelchair. Last year he opened up his own CrossFit gym where he offers free classes to other amputees. Zack was born without thigh bones and brittle bones in his legs so doctors amputated them over the course of his life.
