Rakesh Maisuria is an athlete and a new dad. He also lost one of his legs to cancer at the ripe old age of nine. And yes, he is into CrossFit.

Anyone who trains hard knows that it is difficult. And for someone with Rakesh’s physical limitation, it would be easy to make excuses about any movement being more difficult than usual. But he believes that limits and boundaries are meant to be jumped over and/or broken. He leads an active lifestyle and says that he is, you know, “rugged.”

His favorite lift? Deadlifts. The greatest challenge for each workout, obviously, is maintaining balance.

His current goal? To be a great father.

What boundaries will you break today?
