How did Jeff McMahon got into virtual training? Well, Jeff's mom had health issues since he was born and he originally wanted to be a surgeon to help take care of her, but being colorblind made that dream impossible. She had a major stroke when he was a freshman in college and she lost the use of the left side of her body. Then came breast cancer (twice), brain deterioration, and a heart attack. One day she suggested to Jeff that he should train people online that have suffered strokes and can’t get out of their home. Jeff thought about it, they tried it with his mom's stroke support group, and then he took that format to the online entrepreneur world. Basically, his mom’s handicap has transformed the fitness world and started a whole new revolution.
