It is the freedom that Ryley Batt hasn't had a lot of over the last five years, but one he's looking to embrace.
With his 2020 Paralympic Games quest now officially over following two weeks of hotel quarantine, the 32-year-old is focused on inspiring and motivating the next generation of athletes.
Along with wife Crystal, the Batts own North Brother CrossFit in Laurieton and that's where the two-time Paralympic gold medallist will spend a lot of his time in the next six months.
What happens from there is up in the air.
"I want to help motivate people. I want to build a community. I want to work with kids with disabilities in there who think that life is too tough or they use their disability as an excuse," the two-time Paralympian said.
"I want to be able to show them what we can do with our bodies, but even with regular able-bodied people I want to be able to give them some of the tips I have learned over many years of being an athlete.
"I'm looking forward to doing that, it's truly a passion of mine and we'll see what happens after then. We'll reassess."
Batt said it was important for him to give back to the people who have supported him over the last five years between Rio and Tokyo.
"I'm looking forward to living life for the next six months," he said.
After training by himself for the best part of 20 years, Batt knows how crucial it is for mental health to exercise daily.
That's where he wants to build his community.
"To be able to train with other people and be motivated by other people is a big bonus because it's not always about results, it's about pushing yourself to be your personal best," he said.
"It will be a really good space for me mentally to be able to go in and train with others, but also share my experiences and build a community.
"I'm looking forward to having a little bit of freedom to be honest."
