Troy Hawkins- Spina bifida
Troy is courageous and resilient.
Having a brother, an uncle and parents who supported him he learnt that no matter what was thrown at him, he could get through it.
There was tough love shown by his family to build that mental toughness in to his mind and body, because without it- he would go on to let his disability to defeat him.
Troy’s parents, who he thanks for so much, didn’t allow him to blame his disability for any problems in life, and always showed him that there was an alternative way to get things done.
Hear how Troy, despite bullying, 13 surgeries before he hit high school and someone telling him he couldn’t be a personal trainer.
Troy proved he could do whatever it takes having now competed as body builder in a wheelchair, he plays for Hawthorn Football Club in wheelchair footy and he runs his own personal training business (All inclusive body transformations)
