“As a trainer for AccesSport, I was inspired daily by the people around me – both coworkers and athletes – who taught me important life lessons about motivation, collaboration, and the importance of challenging ourselves and pushing our so-called limits to achieve truly amazing feats. AccesSport allows people of all ages and walks of life to discover themselves in new ways each and every day and, even as a trainer, I was no exception.”
