Everyone has a story. Equinox members are sharing their personal health and fitness stories and how Equinox helped them achieve their goals. Read these inspiring stores and share your own at Equinox's new microsite My Body, My Biography. Here's what one member had to say:
"I basically had to start from scratch. Eleven years ago, I was in a small plane that crashed. Both the pilot and his daughter and my best friend died. The doctors said I only had a 50/50 chance to survive. 30% of my body was burned and my neck was broken in two places. I was in the hospital ICU unconscious for 30 days, I had multiple skin graft surgeries and then after I fell while trying to learn how to walk I was put in a halo—a ring that is bolted to your skull to stabilize your neck...
I had to learn how to walk again, how to brush my teeth again—you name it. The best part of my recovery was going to Equinox, because I could see improvements every day. Eventually, I was able to compete in the Ford Ironman World Championships Triathlon. A theme of Ironman is 'proving the impossible possible,' and that is really what my recovery/story is all about."
