In 1999, as a professional motocross athlete, Aaron Baker sustained a career ending spinal cord injury. He fractured cervical vertebrae 4,5,6 rendering him a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chin down. He was given a “one in a million” chance of ever feeding himself again.
From the onset of his injury, his focus was on rebuilding and redefining life. He became a student of the mind and body, and mastered a set of fundamental tools he uses and teaches daily.
Today, he is a recovering quadriplegic husband, father, adventure athlete, author, orator, entrepreneur and ambassador for spinal cord injury. He co-founded the Center Of Restorative Exercise and represents Red Bull’s non-profit charity - Wings For Life Foundation as a member of the Board Of Directors, USA and Chairman of the Ambassador Council.
He also sits on the Board of Directors for Los Angeles based non-profit, Artists For Trauma and is the Spinal Cord Injury Lifestyle Specialist and author for Shield Healthcare, Permobil, Boost Oxygen, Sno-Go, and contributor for the Huffington Post.
