Lindsay Hilton pauses to focus between deadlift reps.

Lindsay Hilton, from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is dedicated to CrossFit, despite having been born with no arms or legs. CrossFit is a fitness regime that draws on such sports as high-intensity interval training, weightlifting and gymnastics. Hilton participates in grueling workouts using equipment she has adapted using everyday hardware materials—this proved simpler and cheaper than trying to find equipment on the internet. Hilton juggled her intensive training regime with work, life and coaching commitments in order to qualify for the Adaptive Seated RX division of the international CrossFit fitness festival. She finished in the top five in the category.
