Krystal Cantu



My story is still being written, but to start...

My name is Krystal Cantu and I was born and raised in The Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2012. During college, I worked as a nanny to a beautiful family of 5 for almost three years. By January of 2013 I landed my dream job at one of the most renowned IT companies in San Antonio, Texas. In August of 2013 I was involved in a car accident, due to a tire blowout, that resulted in the amputation of my right arm.

My life after the accident has been nothing short of a blessing. I’ve traveled the US competing and coaching as a Crossfit adaptive athlete and trainer, inspired thousands to live up to their greatest potential and most importantly…became a mommy to an incredible little boy.
