Welcome to an iFIT series like no other, where you’ll learn more than just bike training techniques.
Brandon Lyons invites you to his native Florida to share a life-altering experience and the lessons he
learned from it. In 2014, while enjoying a successful career as a consultant, all it took was a simple
dive into shallow water to turn his life around. His T5 and T6 vertebrae were shattered, leaving the
lower part of his body paralyzed.
After the shock of the first few weeks, he bounced back and started to play sports again during his
rehabilitation, and in 2016 he discovered a new passion for cycling. His incredible journey led him to
join the cycling team of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Better than anyone, your iFIT coach knows how to overcome obstacles to believe in yourself and
