How did you get involved in the street workout world?
I got injured in 2002 and wanted to do something different now that my life changed and I would spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair! So I started searching the web and came across Hannabalforking. Started watching him and said I want to do that. Then I found out about barstarzz and tried out for the team. I love every minute of street workout! It’s amazing!
Why did you choose to practice street workout?
It’s unique, fun and different! It makes me challenge myself with a disability! It has helped me with my life with a disability!
How is street workout reflected in your life?
In many ways. I my self was inspired and now I inspire people! I want to show people that even though I have a disability and things in life get hard, stay positive and exercise and stay healthy! Street workout has made me stay focus on that vision! Living a healthy life through working out and eating heathy! Street workout is Convenient! You don’t need to spend money and it gets you out into the world! Trying new things!!!

Which would be the worst experience you had doing street workout?
When I slept climbing up a ten foot pole with my wheelchair connected to me and I was sweating, so while I was climbing my hand slept and I feel to ground!
What do you expect from the street workout community in the next couple of years? Hopefully it grows and there are more events! Also I really would like to see more people with disabilities getting involved!!!
Can you give an advise for all the people that would like to start doing street workout? Give it a try, it could change your LIFE!!!
