Lavina Mehta MBE Investiture at Windsor Castle & feature by Royal Family

Monday 20th December 2021 08:32 EST

Lavina Mehta MBE is a 43-year-old Personal Trainer, Wellness Coach, Speaker and mum of three who was awarded an MBE for services to health and fitness during Covid-19 in October 2020 Queen Honour’s List. She is honoured for her services to health and fitness with special interest to the Asian community and older people.  

Her free workouts with her 74-year-old Mother-in-Law, which she has continued, have helped thousands globally, even up to the age of 100 in Care Homes.  She is making fitness accessible to all with her concept of Exercise Snacking – breaking down barriers of time, cost and motivation.  

Lavina’s story is quite unique, having left her successful corporate career as a Global Project Manager 13 years ago, to become a housewife and raise her 3 boys. Lavina was requalified as a PT just 3.5 years ago. She only started her own fitness journey 10 years ago and cannot herself believe that she is now an influencer with a large social media presence, a fitness role model in the South Asian Community, helping to train thousands of people virtually and globally, and she never envisaged receiving an MBE Honour from the Queen alongside the likes of Joe Wicks, ‘Mr Motivator’ and Marcus Rashford.

Lavina has supported many charities this year including Alzheimer’s Society, Brain Tumour Research and is a proud Ambassador for Diabetes UK on her mission to help everyone Feel Good physically and mentally.  Her slogan is Exercise for Sanity, not Vanity.” 

She has been featured on The Royal Family’s Instagram & Twitter accounts.
