While the GRIT Freedom Chair gives you the opportunity to move beyond the pavement, you don’t have to go very far off the pavement to find an adventure. Sometimes the best adventures can be had right in your own backyard – or at least very near to that!
"The first weekend I had it I went down to the park, and it was great because I could push around. Some of the trails are gravel and some of them are dirt, but it let me get out and enjoy the fresh air again . . . "Just leaving the pavement; simple things like just going in my backyard . . . This is the best chair I’ve found that can do that."
Tyler Rich is an active 25 year old living with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. He began participating in obstacle course races after receiving his Freedom Chair, and the activity took on a life of it's own. After logging over 50 official race miles in 2017, Tyler is impressed with the durability of his GRIT Freedom Chair: "The fact that I have been so rough on it and it still works as well as the day I got it is impressive."
"The activities I enjoy in my Freedom Chair are going on hikes with my family! Going out on the beach and riding by the water is huge highlight since getting a Freedom Chair! I love to go surf fishing as well in my Freedom Chair. It also makes going camping so much easier! I have taken it hunting and also use it when I go to the firing range for target practice."
"It’s liberating and I’m getting to do all this stuff that, quite frankly, I never thought I would never be able to do again . . . It has surpassed all of my hopes and expectations in terms of getting around on rougher terrain and being able to hike again and being able to get back out in the field."
