Banana Chat - meet Victoria Winterford

by Banana Crumble | Nov 28, 2018

Hey I’m Victoria

A personal trainer and fitness enthusiast from London/Essex. My main goals are to spread as much positivity as possible and get people loving themselves no matter what, it’s all about becoming the best version of you!

I’ve been through a massive journey myself, both mentally and physically, and I want others to know that you can achieve anything you want if you put your mind to it, you are your only limitation


What is your favourite joke?
A penguin walks into a bar. He asks the bartender, “Have you seen my brother?” The barman asks, “Well, what does he look like?”.

What makes you smile?
When I wake up to messages knowing I have managed to help someone anywhere in the world

What is your favourite good news story?
Hearing about people that have managed to conquer and get through a tough time, it really puts things into perspective about how lucky I am

What inspires you?
I inspire myself, slightly cringey but I’m still shocked at how far I have come, I am forever grateful which motivates me to grow and succeed further

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?
Poverty – I’ve been to Gambia and seen it first hand, there is so much money in the world yet still so much poverty, it’s the saddest thing to see and wish we would all do more to help

If you could have one superpower what would you choose and why?
My superpower would be to be able to take on everyone else’s super powers, that way you get to do everything

Brownies and ice cream

Coconut Milk Flat White

If you are going on holiday what luxury item would you take from home?
Something to play music on, music for me has always played a huge part of my life and can help control any emotions you have

If you could make one law, what would it be and why?
No Negativity – People are far too negative, if we all adopted a much more positive outlook on life and looked at things in a different way then I think the whole world would be a much happier place to live in

Give us a random piece of information about you that people wouldn’t know?
I won Miss Universe Essex in 2015 and came 1st runner up for Miss Universe Great Britain in the same year

Right now the greatest showman soundtrack has my heart (and everyone else’s haha)
