Former pro football player David Vobora gave up a lucrative career in private fitness to work with wounded warriors. His workouts have brought them new strength and inspiration.

The 32-year-old stuntwoman, wowed viewers by completing a top-speed qualifying run in a Wonder Woman outfit, expertly navigating the Log Grip, Propeller Bar, Jumping Spider and Warped Wall (translation: should-be-impossible obstacles). And she had 12 seconds to spare. I want to be like her when I grow up.
