Teaching high school science in New York City requires a certain amount of mental fortitude, but it’s all in a day’s work for Gina Marie Policastro. When she isn’t in the classroom, she’s at the gym, training as an elite Crossfit and Strongman athlete. Even a devastating ACL tear in December 2018 couldn’t keep the NBC Titan Games competitor down for long.
Just one week after her ACL reconstruction surgery, Gina was back in the gym. Guided by her two phenomenal physical therapists and a strength coach, she resumed her previous Crossfit training schedule, with one noticeable difference: she was wearing Breg’s Post-Op Rehab Knee Brace.
Gina contacted us on Facebook to share her story. “I reached out to Breg because I truly believe that the brace I wear is a big reason as to why I have been able to train as much as I have,” Gina said.
“After comparing mine to others, it is hands down the best regarding functionality, mobility, comfort,but most importantly safety and stability.”
