Did you all catch this? You might remember Hyde Park Gym‘s 2016 Squat by Southwest meet, which I wrote about here. It is an annual event, but we turned this year into a fundraiser for Stephen Moore, one of our own trainers, who was in a motorcycle accident in which he lost his right foot.
Stephen competed in powerlifting for Louisiana Tech University, and had moved back to Austin shortly before the accident. He was, and continues, to be a powerlifter, and an inspiration.
If you’re following his story, you know he’s deadlifting in the 400 pound range again, training clients, and doing better every day.
Read more about his inspiring attitude, and the steps he took to get back into lifting condition, at Austin Fit Magazine: It’s Not Over Until You Quit.
