BIOGRAPHY:

Kyle Maynard was born with congenital amputation of the forearms and lower legs, but he didn't let that stop him from becoming a college award-winning wrestler and amateur mixed martial artist. Since then, Kyle has used his strong passion for exercise and strength to help others. In 2008, he opened No Excuses CrossFit Gym where he focuses on personal engagement as a way of helping people meet their fitness goals.
