TPS and TCC would like to recognize Edgar Johnson, as our clients spotlight of the week.
Edgar, 22, started at TPS in August 2015, after he sustained a spinal cord injury in a car accident on February 7, 2015. Edgar had heard about the facility from a previous trainer who had positive things to say about exercise based therapy. Edgar’s commitment to the program since then has paid off. He has seen improvement in his upper body control and his strength in his arms, as well as more functional movement and controlled muscle spasms in his lower extremities.
In his own words: “The Perfect Step is very different from any other therapy. They have more out of the box thinking than any other place that I have been to and their approach towards training the nervous system I feel is very beneficial. I’ve never been to a place that has focused on the lower extremity muscle groups like TPS does. The Perfect Step allots me a mental capacity of having a more open mind about the life that I can lead and the opportunities that are around. I am much more confident in the workouts that I can facilitate, with knowing that I have a network of people that can relate at TPS.” Edgar’s short term goal is to reduce his blood pressure issues, and his long-term goal derives in wanting to walk again. He intends to go back to school to get his degree in architecture, which stemmed from his love of a drafting class that he took in high school.
Edgar previously attended Etiwanda High School, where he played football and wrested, while additionally fighting MMA on his own time. Now, he is a self-proclaimed movie/tv critic, video game lover, and food connoisseur. “My advice to somebody who is newly injured is to be forward thinking about your health and wellness and to be on top of your insurance company to make sure that you get the care that you need.” Does Edgar story hit home? Are you or a loved one trying to seek out a program to suit your recovery needs? We might be the perfect fit for you.

Perfect Strong Friday post Courtesy of @kev.un via @adaptivecrossfit do the best with that you have and go after it. Great work Kev
Don’t let fear stop you from living the life you want just overcome and adapt
When i was first injured, i decided i would do everything in my power to not let my physical limitations hold me back. Some days that’s easier said than done, but over the years I’ve come to realize a lot of times the only thing that can hold us back from something is ourselves. It’s our own limitations that we put on ourselves by thinking “i can’t” when it’s really “i won’t.” You have to learn how to overcome your own limited mindset and beliefs. Have a little faith in yourself and put in the extra work to live life to the fullest. If i can do it, anyone can. 💪🏼
Ugh. We could all use a little Hawaii with the Javier’s this weekend, dontchya think? Anyone else had the fun of trying out one of these beach chairs this summer?
If you’re planning a little summer vaca and are in need of any assistance regarding accessible travel resources or just recommendations of what to do, feel free to hmu, I have a wealth of knowledge (and a yearning to live vicariously through you and your adventures while I sit here at my desk at work drooling over everyone’s adventures on IG). Happy Friday everyone! #wheeliesaroundtheworld
“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.” - @bobgoff hitting me with the feels. 📷: @kristineliz1135 #happyfriday
“There is a stigma attached to people with disabilities where people usually disassociate “attractiveness” with physical or cognitive differences. It’s a taboo topic but people usually treat other people who are adaptive as if they are made of glass— too fragile to treat as an equal and too different to see as “normal”.
That’s just the truth and I happen to have first hand experience in the matter growing up with a limb difference. You might see me now and be like “omg so pretti very nice how much” in your best borat voice but I HATED the way people looked at me when I was growing up. I hated how people treated me like I was in a bubble. I hated being stared at and pretending like I didn’t see the pointing fingers and double takes because of my hand.
I say this to show how comfortable I’ve finally become with myself, my look, and my life. Regardless of stigmas, I stopped listening to and abiding by the social norms towards people with “disabilities” and just decided to be confident with what I’ve been given and what I’ve earned.
Confidence is a decision and can be a hard one. But with work, self acceptance, and a decision to ignore the social ignorance towards adaptive people, it’s all good 🙌 there are no physical requirements to obtain confidence 👊”
