"In October 2019, I was medically retired from the Canadian Armed Forces. My injuries had left me a shell of the person I once was. I needed to be inspired. Fast forward to November 2019, I attended my first 6 AM boxing class, where I met Hal. A few weeks later, Hal and I began the process of rebuilding. I've gone from being unable to deadlift to competing in the Victoria Barbell Open last fall. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Hal. The spirit of this community continues to inspire me, and for that, I am grateful. Thank you to the forge community for selecting me as the member of the month!
Keep lifting and lift heavy!”
