Trebor Marple of CrossFit Valdosta during a 400m tire flip WOD. Trebor sustained an injury that left him without full function of his legs. He completed this WOD using mainly his forearms, arms, shoulders and chest. His doctor told him he would never walk again... so... Trebor sent him this pic.Posted by at October 4, 2007 8:15 PM

Rock out, man, that's friggin' awesome.
Wow, that's a great ! Some doctors just doesn't know what they are doing, they are like human 'plumbers'...
They told me not to lift heavy three years ago and left me with pain and pills. Now I do cleans and DL and hey, no more pain.
So Trebor, go for it !
I love it! Stay strong Trebor!
Oh hell yeah Trebor, rock on! Good luck for continued badassedness!
There's no limit to what a person can do!
that's incredible! awesome, trebor.
Thank you all so much the comments. I felt amazing after it. I have a 5 vertebrae fusion/incomplete spinal injury. The funny thing is I didn't even feel it in my back. CrossFit is amazing. I am having an incredible experience with my facility and the family we are building.
Awesome, awesome, awesome. What a way to start the day with reading about such an excellent example. Keep going!
Amazing work Trebor! It's another example of how far the human body can be pushed, especially when the professionals are telling you to quit. Very inspiring.
You are AMAZING!! Your courage, commitment, determination, talent, heart and strength is a true inspiration! I am so thankful for you! Thanks for all of the hard work and dedication you give to your CrossFit Valdosta family! You are an awesome motivator and trainer! What is the opposite of FEAR?
I showed my partner the pick without reading the blurb below and she said that Trebor looked like Mariusz Pudzianowski - nice cuts bro!
Now, that's impressive, inspiring, incredible...
impossible = nothing
Very few words can express the ability of this man, his energy and motivation impact so many. He is a hero, and a true friend...we look up to you Trebor. "Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself" - Beecher
I did tire flips for the first time last year at Ken Urakawa's CrossFit Southwest. Blew me away how hard they were. Can't imagine 400m's worth! Nice JOB!!!
Wow! What an inspiration!!
Now that's what I'm talking about!
Kettle Bells i tell you. His boy are the size of 50lb kettle bells. Hoo Ya Bro
Trebor...You are an inspiration to everyone around you...You are truely an amazing person!! I am proud to know you and glad to work with you everyday. You are my Superman.....
right on beast, that's the way to go!
some doctors insist on giving out the worst possible view, pisses me off!
Motivational to say the LEAST!! Nice work!
I met Trebor in Golden, CO and he is a kick ass guy. I think the patients should have to go see him at CF Valdosta after they finish with the doc.
Jeez Trebor, your forearms are almost as big as your quads! Keep it up.
How much does the tire weigh?
Not sure. We think it's about 300+lbs. Our 400m is marked out with arrows that on the tire flip you have to hit. If you hit the arrows it is about 500m. Thank you to everyone for all the motivational comments.
Trebor is the man! What an inspiration to everyone he is involved with! Thank you for everything you have done for me.
Way to go, Trebor! Thanks for posting this, too. It gives hope to others with obstacles to overcome.
Thank you Trebor for being an inspiration.
WHAT WILLPOWER AND SPIRIT!
Thank you for pushing me during workouts! I have painfully enjoyed every minute of it! Trebor you have impacted so many lives and we are lucky to have you at CrossFit Valdosta. Please keep it coming!
This young man is my personal inspiration. Crossfit is an amazing way of life. But Trebor is an amazing person and inspires hundreds of people to "go the extra mile". I am thankful he is my "son".
