Frank & Kristen are a married couple whose happiest day ~ the day they were married in 2008 ~ became a tragedy. Soon after they said "I do" Frank jumped into the pool and broke his neck in two places and became a quadriplegic. His new bride, Kristen, has been his caretaker ever since feeding Frank and getting him dressed. (click here to watch their journey).
Tony Robbins "Breakthrough" episode with Frank and Kristen Alioto, is beyond inspiring. "Breakthrough" is an NBC reality show about people in deep distress who experience life changes in 30 days with the enormous help of Tony Robbins.
Tony Robbins creates several seemingly crazy experiences around the world (skydiving, wheelchair basketball a.k.a. murderball, desert speed truck racing) for this sweet couple to help each of them individually, and as a married couple, grieve, feel strong, capable, brave, joyful, and to realize that anything is possible. As one olympic winning murderball player told Frank, "There are no limitations, just modifications".
Even though Tony's 7-Steps for them to achieve all of this sounds like typical self-help jargon, once you see them put it into action you "get it".
Bravo to Frank & Kristen! Bravo to Tony Robbins! May we all put into practice what we learned from all of you, and make changes for the better.
