Ann Arbor, Michigan
Tom Hoatlin was just 28 years old when he was shot during an armed robbery at his workplace. He suffered a spinal cord injury that meant he would never walk again and would need to use a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
When he finally discovered the NuStep at the Center for Independent Living, he was able to see his legs move for the first time in 17 years and get the cardiovascular workout he had been missing. Exercising on the NuStep helped Tom lose weight, build his endurance for daily activities and inspire him to live a healthier life. Watch Tom's video to learn more about his injury, recovery and passion for NuStep.
