At the age of 56, competitive bodybuilder and personal trainer Leo Costa, Jr. suffered three strokes over the course of three weeks. His amazing recovery defied doctors’ expectations, but the real surprise was what Leo learned about himself during this journey.
He used the wake-up call of having the strokes to ask himself, “What was I doing wrong, and why was I doing it?” He learned how to question his choices to better understand his own behavior, and the tools he used to bounce back from failure and adversity.
Other stroke survivors began to learn about Costa and his miraculous 100% recovery through his book. He began educating, motivating and empower stroke survivors by speaking at stroke support groups across the country and sharing his story to anyone who was looking for the drive he could help provide.
He is now on a mission to help other stroke survivors reach their 100% recovery when insurance ends their physical therapy, leaving them to do it alone.
If time permits, usual stroke survivor and caregiver support group sessions will be held after special speaking engagement.
