Double Amputee Is AMAZING CrossFit Trainer That Never Let His Handicap Stop Him From Crushing It At The Gym
Zach Ruhl could make excuses why he doesn’t hit the gym or why he doesn’t even get out of bed. He has two valid reasons actually… Zach is missing both of his legs. That handicap hasn’t handicapped Zach’s ability to absolutely crush it at the gym.
Ruhl was born with birth defects that caused brittle leg bones and missing thigh bones that forced doctors to amputate both of his legs when he was only 2-years-old. But Zach’s mother Cheryl wouldn’t allow her son’s disability to be an excuse. “At just seven-months-old I would never just give him his baby bottle, he’d have to crawl in his body cast to get it,” Cheryl told the Daily Mail. “He used to ask me to leave stuff down on the cabinets for him so he didn’t have to reach up and I told him ‘No – I am not going to be here forever you have to learn to do things yourself.'”
