My name is Fallon Turner, and I am 30 years old. I was born with hydrocephalus, and I also have cerebral palsy. When I was 4 years old, I was also diagnosed as being legally blind.

I graduated from high school in 2006. Now, I work part-time at Starbucks Coffee. I also train at the gym 3 days a week so I try to stay busy. I ride horses at Circle J Cowboy Church’s therapy program and volunteer at Runnin’ WJ Ranch. I also enjoy taking guitar lessons in my spare time.

When I was in high school, I took P.E. all four years which consisted of weightlifting. After high school, I wanted to keep lifting weights so I decided to join Icon Gym & Training. I heard about a wheelchair bodybuilder named Chad McCrary who trained at Icon so I contacted him to see if he could help me pursue my goal. At first my goal was to powerlift; however, after six months of powerlifting, I realized that it would be a struggle to find local competitions. Chad encouraged me to consider training to be a bodybuilder. After training with him for a year and a half, I entered my first show on June 7, 2008 – the NPC Lone Star Classic held in Plano, Texas.

I continued to train as a member of Team Icon along with my fellow bodybuilders, John Clack, Chad McCrary, Jaremy Lynn, Stosh Skinner and Stew Scott. They have been my biggest supporters and have encouraged me to follow my dreams.

In February of 2009, I became a member of Anytime Fitness, where I did indoor cardio. I also trained at XLR8 Athletix with my trainer, John Clack, who is the former owner of Icon Gym & Training. He is one of my biggest mentors and best friends, always encouraging me to be the best I can possibly be.

In the fall of 2018, I began training back at Anytime Fitness with my trainer, Travonn Crow. I enjoy the camaraderie with the other gym members who I see there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I believe in training hard and following your dreams. I live by the motto, “Nothing is Impossible if You Believe.”
