Best practice

Anton, has a passion for personal fitness but also has Ataxia which has meant he has had to use a wheelchair on a permanent base since age 14. He had settled for a future career in admin because he thought it was the only sort of work he'd be able to do. Luckily, he met with a Team Leader from EmployAbility who helped him to explore his personal enthusiasm for fitness , which extended beyond lifting weights to an in-depth knowledge of physical anatomy and the body's response to exercise.
