#354: Surviving Cancer with Beau Whitman
Beau Whitman is a former competitive athlete, fitness coach, and a cancer survivor.
After undergoing six major reconstructive surgeries he thought he had seen the toughest of times. However, in 2019 he was diagnosed with Stage III Germ Cell Cancer. He realized his entire athletic background was training him for this defining moment in his life.
Calling upon the lessons he learned from his past challenges, he shifted his mindset, put his head down and went to work overcoming his illness. Today he is cancer free!
Following his mantra, “Rebuilt to Inspire,” Beau’s passion has expanded from coaching injured athletes to helping cancer survivors reclaim their health and fitness.
