Jess Brown, Personal Trainer at Bodyfix Gym, coming from a family of No Excuses

Tell me your excuse.. ??‍♀️

After a tough start to life my little sisters (twins) were born 8 weeks premature.

Montana was born with Cerebral Palsy which is an impaired coordination between the brain and muscles. This makes it hard to control and be in charge of body movements.

Jaz has Scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, she has had 2 major spinal surgeries but still struggles with the pain of it on a daily basis.

As the girls have grown up (they are now 16) they have shown me that anyone and everyone is capable of doing something to move their body and stay active even if it just needs to be adapted for their abilities!

Montana trains 5 times per week and is off for her first international competition for wheelchair racing in Sydney at the end of January! She is hoping to break the FOUR NZ records she currently holds and on Australia day will compete in a 10km road race around the Rocks of Sydney lining up against some of the best wheelchair racers in the world.

Jaz will start her hair dressing course next year which will be a challenge on her body but I know she will push through like she always does!

Life hasn’t been easy for my little sisters and I’m sure the future will hold many more challenges for them.

Our mum and dad have shown and taught all of us three girls that nothing can ever stop us unless we let it. I’m proud of mine and my sisters resilience, determination and attitude!

They don’t give excuses, so whats your excuse..?
