‘My First Time Going To The Gym As An Amputee’

January 11, 2023

A woman has described going to the gym for the first time since having her leg amputated as “like walking into a bit of a lion’s den”.

Sian Green, 32, from Leicester, had her left leg amputated below the knee after a taxi driver mounted a kerb and crashed into her in Manhattan on 20 August 2013.

Ms Green said: “I feel it’s very common to feel [nervous] about walking into a gym, even if you don’t have a disability.

“I have finally done it without any assistance and I feel great.”
