A fitness fanatic confined to a wheelchair “wanted to inspire people with disabilities”
A FORMER City worker from Cobham confined to a wheelchair after a car accident almost 10 years ago has become one of the county’s first disabled fitness instructors.
John Parfitt, 33, who lives in Between Streets, worked at Bloomberg for a decade before leaving his job in 2009 to follow his passion for sport.
Having sustained a spinal cord injury nine years ago, Mr Parfitt, a fitness fanatic, had hoped for a place in Great Britain’s wheelchair rugby squad.
