Aug 23, 2009 Tracy Reid's Second Chance

Tracy Reid's Second Chance

When she was in junior high school, she was over 200 pounds. Now, at 25 years of age, Tracy Reid has two body building competitions under her belt.

Fitness and weight training have become Tracy's passion...her religion. In the tiny central Newfoundland community of Terra Nova, Tracy works out every day. In the basement of her parents house, where she's set up her own little gym.

None of this happened by accident. In fact, it happened because of an accident. An ATV accident that could have taken Tracy's life, and at the very least left her crippled. But out of that very bad thing came something very good. A story of pure grit and determination. The inspiring story of a young woman who got a rare second chance in life, and made the most of it.
