CHICAGO --Caprice O'Bryant faced challenges after two accidents caused her to sustain neurological injuries, but her motto remains "No excuses." Now she's inspiring others to get fit.
O'Bryant, 22, was born and raised in the south suburbs. She went to Tinley Park High School and lives with her parents in Richton Park. Two different car accidents left her with a traumatic brain injury and a life prone to seizures. During one of these seizures, at the age of 19, she hit her head, re-injuring the brain trauma. The injury left her with retrograde amnesia.
She was encouraged to work out to help with her recovery, and she found her passion. People started asking her to help them train, and she finally got certified as a personal trainer. That's when the motto "No excuses" was formed. She has now opened her own studio, "Excuse Free Fitness," in Homewood to help others achieve their goals.
