Wanna know more? Here’s the inside scoop from 5 mins with Vic…
I’m 24 from Manchester! I was a sporty kid, and after High School I pursued my dreams as a professional dancer. After two years of being hyper aware of my body, I was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa.
After some time suffering I decided to create an Instagram account to use as my diary to help me recover. I became a personal trainer and aspired to help women with their relationship with their bodies.
Growing up, I was always active. I was on every sports team at school, and I ran and swam at a higher level. When I wasn’t doing sports I was dancing. I founded my love for the gym after my eating disorder, when I was introduced to weights, and different kinds of training.
People presume that a PT and Fitness Influencer has endless motivation – that couldn’t be further from the truth! Each year I set myself a non-aesthetic based challenge to work towards. On the days where I can’t be bothered to train, I think about how much harder I’m making that challenge for myself!
I am (reluctantly) running the London Marathon. I might also do a triathlon.
You only don’t achieve something when you’ve thrown the towel in and called it quits – this is something I never do!
I love mango with lime juice for a sweet snack, and literally anything dipped in hummus for a savoury snack.
In my dressing gown. 💖
I’m one of the ‘New year New me’ kind of people and I see January as another shot to set some habits and start the year as I mean to go on.
When I started blogging, it wasn’t a thing to be ‘insta famous’ or even a way to make money, I needed some help and then eventually found so much fulfilment in helping others. With that story in mind, just figure out what you are eternally passionate about and consistently shout about it authentically across your platforms. Eventually people will catch on and brand will notice you.
My favourite is actually the grey tracksuit #comfortgoals. But do workout I love the grey leggings and the purple crop top!
There you have it! Feelin’ motivated yet?!
