Fitness trainer and social media influencer (Includes interview)

He is drawn to health and fitness because it “never ends.” “You are always working towards something,” he explained. “It teaches you a goal-driven mindset and it teaches you that nothing comes easy, there is no magic pill. What I love about being a personal trainer, is seeing the impact that it has on people. Seeing people’s transformation photos gives me the most satisfaction.”

On his daily motivations, Crockford said, “I don’t know what my true potential really is. I don’t know if anybody finds out what that is. I am always working to improve myself. I want to be positive, and have an impact on as many people as possible.”

Woman too ‘scared’ to join gym transforms body on her own, becomes fitness influencer

An Australian woman lost 50 pounds in a matter of months, all without use of a gym.

Angel Bowyer, 22, began to gain weight because of her poor eating habits. “My diet consisted of mostly fast food, pizza, KFC, [McDonald’s] and eating out. I don’t think I ate anything green in two years,” she said to news.com.au.

However, three years ago, Bowyer decided to revamp her lifestyle and focus on her fitness. Unfortunately, she was too “scared to join a gym,” she told the outlet, limiting her options to just outdoor or home exercise.

She says she simply let her stomach hang loose in the first one and then sucked it in for the second. This gives the illusion that she is in better shape in one photo, even though the only difference is how she’s holding her stomach and the pose she’s standing in.

Mack explains that she did this
