Alex Crockford - Fitness Coach

London

www.alexcrockford.com

My name is Alex Crockford, and I am the founder of the brand #CrockFit, I help people across the world transform their bodies with my training & nutrition guides. #CrockFit is a platform for online training programmes for men and women who love to train at the gym or at home. Health and fitness has been a part of my life since a young age. As a kid, I was involved in many sports teams and clubs, and throughout school and college I focussed mainly on the physical subjects, which directed me to earn my degree later in 'fitness & personal training'. I graduated in 2011 and went full steam ahead into the world of personal training! I quickly gained experience and knowledge and became a full-time personal trainer at a corporate gym within a year. As a personal trainer, I have helped many people not only achieve their fitness goals but completely transform their body, mind and life. Working one to one with people and helping them change their lives was so satisfying and I loved my work, but I always felt that I was being boxed in, helping just a few people in one day. I had big dreams, and I knew I could achieve much more. I have the passion to not only inspire one person at a time but maybe thousands, millions.

Dr Chintal Patel - General Practitioner

London

https://www.instagram.com/drchintalskitchen/

Hello, I am Chintal, I am a doctor and a passionate cook/foodie. I come from an Indian background where food has always been a huge part of my life. I started helping in the kitchen at a young age and have been independently cooking from age 10. I believe food doesn’t need to be expensive or complicated to be healthy and delicious. I believe in using good wholesome ingredients. I avoid processed food wherever possible.

I work as a General Practitioner in London for the last 11 years. I work with families and children and see a need for family-friendly food that is easy to make and enjoyable to eat by the whole family. I often meet parents who struggle to encourage their children to eat nutritious meals or find it hard to find the time to make healthy meals at home. They often find themselves cooking separate meals for their children or using readymade meals. I want to empower these families to cook together and make quick, easy, cheap and healthy recipes at home the whole family can enjoy.

I hope to inspire and motivate families and children to eat well and cook family friendly meals together every day and think about health and nutrition. I am a mum of two boys aged 8 and 6. Both have been fussy eaters and I have learnt tactics and tricks to encourage them both to eat well and try new foods. I genuinely love creating recipes, using ingredients to expand my children's tastes and encouraging them to form a healthy relationship with food from an early age.
