Down But Not Out...
If you know anything about the GASP and Better Bodies CEO Michael Johansson then you should know that he truly subscribes to the "Work Hard, Play Hard" methodology of life.
The unfortunate truth is that some times when you play hard, things don't always go as planned, and for Michael that came in the form of a Motocross accident a few days after he returned from a 3 week trip to visit the Swedish office. For the most part and considering the mechanism of injury, Michael is OK following his crash, with the exception of his right shoulder. A little banged up all around and with a shoulder that will require extensive surgery to repair the damage, Michael's attitude never changed and his positive outlook hasn't waned.
Wanting to be sure he could return to his "Work Hard Play Hard" way of life Michael set out to find a doctor that felt would best suit his needs and get him back to himself as soon as possible. With the help of long time friend and GASP/Better Bodies athlete Kris Gethin he found Dr. Kaleb Redden of Boise Idaho, who quickly set him up with a surgeon who would take on Michaels injured shoulder.
Last Thursday Michael and his wife Helena boarded a flight together with Nick Del Toro and set out to Boise to start Michael's journey to a full recovery. Early this morning Michael reported to the hospital to have his shoulder repaired so he can continue to fulfill his purpose and enjoy his passion for training and motorsports. Get well soon Michael and stay relentless, we can't wait to have you back!
