We start our second season of the Empowered Athlete Podcast with an inspirational story you don't want to miss. Jen Broxterman was one of Canada's top Cross Fit competitors, a nutritionist by trade and someone who shared health and wellness with everyone she met. At the age of 34 she was told she had not one, but two types of cancer and her reaction was anything but typical, leading to an outcome no-one could have predicted.
