Jason Sturm had a life and career planned in the US military, but everything changed when a combat training accident took his leg. Finding community and rehabilitation in the extreme-intensity world of Crossfit training, Raising the Bar follows Jason as he pursues his dream of going back to school, opening his own gym, and shaping a life committed to helping other adaptive athletes regain fitness and health.
