The World’s Strongest One Armed Man Logan Aldridge

Released Tuesday, 5th May 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
At 13 years of age Logan lost his arm in a wakeboarding accident - has that limited his life? Nope- not at all! You may not be able to control the adversity you face, but that doesn't mean you don't control your destiny! In this interview, he discusses how he will never accept the expectations of others and is dedicated to spreading awareness and opportunities through education. Logan says you have to accept the reality of the situation, be grateful for the abundance that you have, be mindful what you focus on, and always keep learning. As he states, “the deterrent or the interest (of what I do) does not come or stem from having one arm or what I'm capable of doing- it’s just what I'm interested in and I will figure out the rest later.” As his mom said right after the accident- “Logan, it’s just an arm.” You are more capable than you believe and can conquer any obstacle on the course or in life.
