The Adaptive Training Foundation
35:54Adaptive Training Foundation is an innovative non-profit gym that provides 100% cost free services to traumatically wounded, ill, and injured individuals through a nine week training program to redefine their lives through exercise and community. In January 2014, David Vobora, a 5-year veteran of the NFL, met US Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, a quadruple amputee. The pair started working out together, customizing and adapting to the unique challenges posed by Travis’ injuries. Through working with Travis and engaging the veteran community, David developed a profound passion for helping those with life-altering injuries find life-fulfilling adaptive performance training. There were many excellent rehabilitation programs as well as adaptive/Paralympic sports organizations. However, none existed to bridge the gap from basic functional rehabilitation to adapted sport. Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF) was built with the intent to fill this void. Since its inception, ATF continues to help adaptive athletes create sustainable lifestyle changes. As a 501(c)3, Adaptive Training Foundation has welcomed outside support for these ambitious athletes To Learn more: http://adaptivetrainingfoundation.org/ Music used in the podcast credit: Stepping Along The Sky by TeknoAXE | http://teknoaxe.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
