Wheelchair chin-ups, muscle-building workouts and fitness advice are all in a day’s work for Fresh gym’s Anton Brown.
The 20-year-old fitness instructor, who has a condition called Ataxia which affects balance and co-ordination, is currently setting up exercise classes for people with disabilities and mobility difficulties.
A fully-active student and sportsman up until the age of nine, Anton gradually started losing his motor skills and had to accept life in a wheelchair at around 16. After coming to terms with his condition, Anton began exercising at home.
Gym owner and manager Gary Kemish said: “With the support that is on offer from EmployAbility and Aspire, Anton is a model of what is achievable.”
In the video below, Anton, who has now set his sights on conquering the 3,500-foot Mount Snowdon in Wales, demonstrates the chin-ups he does in his wheelchair and offers fitness advice.
