Brendan Gets Commando Fit Pt2

The Story of Us:

March 2016  is one year to the month from Brendan’s right leg – above knee amputation.
In this footage he was enjoying his first full training session outside his own backyard; with none other than Steve Willis, better known as The Commando from Australia’s The Biggest Loser. (Brendan is usually his own trainer)
As you can see he went alright 🙂


For those who have watched over Brendan as he has gone from cancer diagnosis to ongoing treatment, I know you are not surprised by what he does. You all saw him walk out of the hospital on crutches 14 days after the operation that removed his leg, and that he was jumping on trampolines within months of his amputation.

I look at my husband as a true example of what we can all aspire to be and many of us already are… and that is someone who is aware of the inner strength that he has, and knows how to put that strength into action-no matter how difficult it is.


For anyone just finding Brendan’s story now I have added a photo of him trampolining with the kids to this post, because I know you will appreciate it as much as the rest of us have.

Life is good and hope is limitless…
