Welcome to my website and welcome to My “One legged life”.
I have faced cancer three times in my 35 years. 1995, 1998 and 2001. As a result of this I had to have a full amputation of my right leg. The treatment I received and my long journey with this disease has made me who I am today. After years of battling I have finally been given the all clear. I am cancer free and can live and function independently.
After 37 years I am the free of cancer and the best version of myself. I am a entrepreneur at Tough Ground CrossFit and Obstacle training, CrossFit L1 trainer, OCR coach, proud father of a little girl and husband and I motivated others to beat there own obstacles by climbing obstacles.
If Someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it? Say yes, then learn how to do it later. – Richard Branson.
I have been trying to find sports that are suitable for me for a long time. I eventually found this in obstacle running and Crossfit. For those who are unaware of obstacle running; it involves persuading a bunch of idiots to crawl through mud and clammer over obstacles on their day off. Yep, I am one of those idiots, the one legged version. I was recently invited to audition for the first series of the Dutch version of ‘Ninja Warrior’. This is a huge compliment for me as my obstacle abilities have been recognised. It will make me more determined than ever to succeed. And Crossfit? That is the second best thing that ever happend to me. I love the power, challenge and competition as an adaptive crossfitter.
Since my participation in obstacle course racing and Crossfit, I have committed myself motivated others to beat there obstacles. I am a proud member of the Dutch adaptive Athlete team; ‘The Dutch Adaptives‘ who pride themselves on demonstrating strength and perseverance while facing obstacles. With hard work there are ‘No limits’. Kind regards! See me in action? Check my Youtube
