No excuses Nutrition

There’s so much great material about Nutrition available now, that it is getting hard to keep up with all the posts! When I come across a gem, I’ll share it here in case you haven’t found it yourself. Here’s one from a fellow CrossFitter and inspiration-extraordinaire, Kyle Maynard.

If you haven’t encountered Kyle before, here’s an introduction from his new website:

“Traffic jams, bills, bad weather, and work are things everyone complains about, but Kyle Maynard doesn’t complain. Born without arms or legs below his elbows and knees, he excels as a champion athlete, motivational speaker, author, model, and entrepreneur.

A 2004 ESPY award winner, Kyle has appeared as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, ABC’s 20/20, Good Morning America, the CBS Early Show. He has also appeared on HBO Real Sports, and as a cover story in USA Today. Kyle continues to inspire others as the author of his autobiography, No Excuses (2005), a New York Times Best Seller.

He recently opened his first fitness center, No Excuses CrossFit, in Suwanee, GA. He continues to train and compete in power lifting and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. And amidst much debate over his capability to compete in the sport, on April 25th 2009, Kyle made history by becoming the first quadruple amputee fighter ever to step into a cage and fight in Mixed Martial Arts.

Today, Kyle travels the U.S. and the world delivering his inspirational message to a wide range of audiences. He is extremely passionate about his work with the Wounded Warriors and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Kyle has accomplished it all with no complaints and No Excuses!”
