50: Christian Little on Turning Suffering into Growth

Episode description

Christian Little had a mountain biking accident that would change her life forever. Honestly, it was a miracle she survived. Out of difficult times, comes a new trajectory for growth.

It took physical, mental and mountain biking therapy as well as a lot of time for Christian to heal but out of that, her company Leap 2 Fly was born. Christian and her team of collaborators want to use the mountain bike to encourage and inspire others to live life to fullest on and off the bike by way of MTB retreats in the USA, Canada, and New Zealand. Previously a professor of physical therapy, Christian is a VIDA MTB Series ambassador and coach, has her IMBA Level 1 MTB Coaching Certificate, Wilderness First Responders, CPR, and a Doctor of Physical Therapy. She has competed in Xterra off road triathlon Nationals and Worlds, MTB races throughout Colorado, the Pioneer MTB Stage Race in New Zealand, and Enduros in the USA and Canada.
