VEGAN FITNESS

Vegan is the new BLACK

The fitness industry has been evolving like mad the past few years. The steak n’ chicken days of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronnie Coleman are now dominated by lentils, tofu, and beans. A new wave of vegan athletes are taking over.

Arnold himself has become an advocate against the livestock agriculture industry. The most renowned meat-eater in town now promotes a plant-based lifestyle! 

If you’re looking for fitness expertise, guidance, and support on your personal quest to live a cruelty-free VEGAN LIFESTYLE full of strength, alignment, and compassion — you’ve come to the right place!

I made the switch in September 2015. It remains one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Clients who stopped consuming animal products report:

  • Feeling lighter
  • Higher energy levels
  • Lost fat easily
  • Can rapidly build and maintain muscle
  • Happier mood and less irritation
  • Easier time getting up
  • Stronger immune system
  • Reduced lethargy

Quick Info About Plant-Based Diets

Where do you get your protein from?

All vegetables, fruit, legumes, and all other plant-based foods inherently contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Animal flesh and products are not the only source of protein. Kale and spinach, for example, contain DOUBLE the amount of protein of beef if compared by weight. Personally, my muscle definition has been popping out more clearly ever since I switched. 

I don’t like salads. What else is there to eat?

There are more and more delicious meat alternatives coming to market everyday. Every favourite dish or meal that you can think of can be replicated without animals. For example, the popular vegan restaurant Meet on Main offers burgers, nut gravy poutines, and a mac n cheese that has no animal cholesterol and all of the rich cheesy flavour. 

If you don’t drink milk and eat cheese, you’ll become calcium-deficient.

Leafy greens such as broccoli and spinach contains LOTS of calcium. So do non-dairy alternatives. Dairy products are acidic and pumped full of animal-grade antibiotics, hormones, and other pharmaceutical cocktails, which research has found to leach calcium from the bones. Which means weakening, not strengthening, of the bones.

Why are eggs a problem? The hens aren’t killed.

Our egg addiction means the death of millions of baby chicks a week because they’re born male and are of no use to the egg industry. They’re tossed into massive metal funnels to be ground up for cattle feed and other nefarious uses. Not to mention the miserable lives of the hens, which are jam-packed into tiny cages littered with excrement and hen carcasses.

I love cheese and bacon. I can’t live without them.

I used to love cheese and bacon too! I grew up eating fried chicken, cheesy nachos, and grilled cheese sandwiches. I perfected the art of bacon frying. It’s been over a year of bacon and cheese-free living and I feel healthier than ever! Cutting cheese and bacon will actually let you live longer! female personal trainer
