Adapt and Overcome: Keith Murphy and Alex Barham

Adapt and Overcome: Keith Murphy and Alex Barham

The Adaptive Training Foundation empowers those with physical disabilities to empower themselves through exercise.

It’s impossible to know what life has in store for us. Keith Murphy, US Army Veteran, certainly did not know what life had in store for him when he went out riding on his motorcycle one day.

He was hit by a woman who wasn’t paying attention to her driving. He lost a leg, and his life was changed forever. At that moment, Keith had a choice: to allow the situation to break him or to allow the obstacles in front of him to make him stronger.

Luckily, Keith came in contact with the Adaptive Training Foundation, an organization started by former NFL Linebacker David Vobora after he was inspired by US Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, a quadruple amputee who lost his limbs in the war in Afghanistan.

The foundation runs a 9 week course that’s built to empower those with physical disabilities through exercise. In that 9 weeks, Keith was rebuilt and transformed.

Today, Keith is not only continuing his career as a truck driver. He’s running Spartan Races, climbing mountains, and competing in bobsledding because of this amazing organization.

In this interview, we discuss Keith’s transformation with himself and his trainer, Alex Barham, a US Marine Corps veteran who works with athletes at the Adaptive Training Foundation.
