Since quitting my job as a Personal Trainer, A lot of people in my personal life and on social media are asking what on earth I’m doing now; So I thought I’d give you a bit of a low down on what’s going on in the world of Victoria Niamh.
Can I just start by saying its July… We’re already more than halfway through the year! How time flies, ey? Honestly speaking, I feel like its only in the past 3 months that I’ve found my feet in 2018- But, You know what they say, better late than never.
So, let’s kick this off!
If you didn’t already know, I am a Co-founder of the global movement The Girl Gains with my two best friends Tally and Zanna. We aim to educate, empower and inspire women to live a healthy, happier life. At the beginning of the year, we were given our own podcast with the BBC ‘Fit&Fearless’ (CRAZY RIGHT?), where we talk about all things fitness, business, lifestyle and just have general banter. We are currently halfway through our second series. If you aren’t already part of the #testosterzone crew, check out our podcast here.
Lucozade Sport & Fit Water Ambassador
I have been working with Lucozade sport on their Made to Move campaign since 2016! When they launched Fit Water, I was the face of their social media promotion, and now they have signed me as an Ambassador for 2018 along with Emily Skyre, Anthony Joshua, and Harry Kane. Chuffed doesn’t quite cut how I feel about the situation… My role includes photo/video shoots, launch events, and social media promotion.
Holland & Barret #CleanerBeauty Campaign
For the second year running, I am working with Holland and Barret on their #Cleanerbeauty campaign. We are raising awareness about the hidden and unnecessary nasties a lot of beauty products have in them And introducing people to the H&B #Cleanerbeauty range. I am in love the ‘The beauty kitchen’ products, but i’ll save that for another post… I joined them on the York leg of their tour and filmed a Facebook live about some of their health products too.
Garmin X Great North Run with Kelly Holmes
What would my life be without a bit of a challenge? Garmin has set me the challenge to run the Great North Run in September (a half marathon) under the watchful eye of the Olympic Gold Medalist and girl boss Dame Kelly Holmes. I have never run further than 14k, So I am slightly worried haha! But, I’m in great hands, and I get to use the new Vevo Active 3 Music Garmin watch to track my training! Wish me luck 🙂
My Vitamins Ambassador
My signing with My Vitamins couldn’t have come at a better time now that my training intensity is the highest it’s been in years! I’ve been a fan of My Vitamins and their brand values for a while now. They are taking a real female friendly, health and wellness approach to supplements. None of that ‘get shredz with our fat burner s**t’. I will do another blog post talking about which specific supplements I use, but I’m very excited to have them on board!
My 18-year-old self would never believe that my 23-year-old self would thrive off public speaking. How times have changed…
I was given the opportunity to speak on a panel at the Active Uprising Conference giving my views on boutique fitness gyms.
…And I was on a panel at both BeFit and Balance festival talking about my journey and #Girlgains.
I have also worked on some smaller campaigns with:
The Body Shop
The Dairy Association
When I’m not working with brands, I sit at home or in a coffee shop creating content which I hope really educates people on Health and fitness and inspires women to love and accept their bodies. Although this is the part of my job which is unpaid, It feels the most important to me. It is where the bulk of my passion lies, and trust me guys, passion is EVERYTHING!
Although its a bit of a crazy time of me, I see this year as a bit of a ‘year out’. It’s my year of discovery, and I’m hoping by the end of it I will have a greater idea of what courses I want to take and which profession I feel most passionate about going down!
So, There’s a little insight into the past 3 months of my job! If you have any questions, you can comment in the box below or hit me up on IG!
