SISTER ACT AIMS TO SET POSITIVE EXAMPLE
“We did so much together as kids. We’re very close-knit”
TIFFINY HALL ON SISTER BRIDGET
When sh e was asked to bring her favourite workout buddy to a special challenge, TBL Families trainer Tiffiny Hall couldn’t go past her sister.
From the moment they could crawl, the pair were learning the ins and outs of taekwondo in their parents’ dojo, earning black belts by the time they were 11.
They brought that martial arts flavour to a “double the burn” day for contestants of the Network Ten reality show.
“The Hailwoods were shocked and freaked out when they walked in and saw Bridget and I,” she laughs. “It was double trouble.”
Just two years apart in age, the two are extremely close. They have the same friendship groups, travel together and still hit the gym when they can.
“We did so much together as kids. All different kinds of sport, ballet, martial arts obviously, musical instruments ... you name it. We’re very close-knit.”
Bridget helps run the family business — a number of taekwondo schools — and teaches classes alongside her mum and dad.
But up until a few years ago, she was living the glamorous life as a prominent fashion designer, Tiffiny explains.
“She was the head designer for Decjuba, she’s worked with Wayne Cooper, Witchery and Cotton On … she’s travelled the world.”
Given Tiffiny’s team consists of three sisters, she thought Bridget could show what a positive sibling dynamic can achieve.
“Sylvia, Kayla and Sam have been enabling each other’s bad habits for years,” she says. “But I wanted them to see that they could keep each other on track and be accountable.”
