Podcast Episode 017 - Branden McWilliams - Ninja Warrior First, Cystic Fibrosis Warrior Second

Branden McWilliams has Cystic Fibrosis. He's also a Ninja Warrior. Literally. 

As in incredible athletes who combine obstacle course training with elements of gymnastics & parkour. You have to have incredible strength, problem solving-skills, endurance, stamina, impulse control, and confidence. 

And interestingly enough, despite his CF, Branden is one of the only athletes to reach the end of the obstacle courses and hit the final red button. 

Being diagnosed with CF at a young age, he was challenged finding a way to stay focused, and decided instead to reject the limitations that come with CF.


In this episode not only do we talk about the many trials and tribulations with having Cystic Fibrosis, but we also speak on the limitations it creates for men when attempting to have kids, speak on the side effects of the new drug Trikafta, and everything in between. 

Here's our chat.
