(Updated) OCB RICHMOND CHAMPIONSHIPS – December 3rd, 2022

Although I love CrossTraining, I have just competed with the PlantBuilt Vegan Strong Team at the Mr. America Sports Festival in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We had around 23 athletes competing in CrossFit, BodyBuilding and Powerlifting. We took home many first place awards and showed the world the plants have all the protein you need. This was my first time competing in Men’s Physique since 2013. I took home 2nd place in my category. This set a fire in me to try again and go for the gold!

I am officially taking the stage again on Saturday December 3rd at the OCB Richmond Championships in Hopewell, VA. I would love it it some folks could come out and support me! I am out to show that vegans can dominate on the bodybuilding stage. The event link is: https://www.facebook.com/events/281015234093329 I will be taking the stage between 12pm-2pm. I hope to see you there! Tickets are $40 and are available at https://ocbonline.com/events/tickets.php?event=Mzgy&eventinfo=OCB120322VA

This event will be available on livestream for $19.95. The link for those who cannot attend in person is https://ocbonline.com/live.php


Current Schedule Update – October 2022

Hey everyone, I have updated the schedule to reflect the current need of members. The schedule for local classes is:

Monday 6pm

Wednesday 6pm

Friday 6pm

Saturday 9:30am

Group classes are determined by the request and interest of members here. If you are interested in training here at a certain time, let me know and it can become a regularly scheduled class. I am willing to coach as early as 5:30am and as late as 8pm. I can coach up to eight people at a time.

I am here to serve the local community and my passion is to help people improve their health through fitness and plant-based nutrition. If you are interested in group classes or person training, please reach out. I can be reached at edbauerfit@gmail.com


Online Workout Classes

This class uses bodyweight mostly, but also I would like everyone to have one or two weighted implements. I suggest a backpack full of enough books to make it weight 15-20lbs, a kettlebell, or a set of dumbbells. You will also potentially use your living room furniture or a dining room chair. That should be all that’s needed. Classes are approximately an hour. These happen every week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 8am PST/11am EST. Classes are $5 each. email me at edbauerfit@gmail.com for the links to join live or watch the recordings anytime and follow along.


NewEthic Online Workout Series

NewEthic Online Workout Series! Starting this Saturday May 23rd. 8am West Coast/11am East Coast. This will happen weekly every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Suggested payment of $5 per class, but Free is totally fine as well. If interested, write me on Instagram, Facebook, or email me at edbauerfit@gmail.com. Peace! 🌱💪 @thenewethic #StrengthThroughCompassion

New Year, New Name, NewEthic

After four years, PlantFit has decided to evolve into NewEthic. We still stand for everything that built the PlantFit name, but for various reasons we have decided to kick off 2016 as NewEthic Strength & Conditioning. This could mean something different for each of us. For some, it’s a representation of a new way of living that includes mindfulness in all parts of life, using functional fitness to fuel your drive. For others it can mean creating a new ethic in fitness and in health. One that doesn’t create an elite or disordered view, one that can hold space for everyone who’s down to get super strong and happy in their skin. 

It’s a new year, and this is the NewEthic!

All participants will receive discounts for 1 on 1 training as well as discounts for team group classes!

On Nov 18th you will receive an email introduction. This will explain details such as which group you’ll be with, instructions for adding to the team Facebook group, what times/dates are available for team group workouts and an opportunity to schedule 1 on 1 training, as well as the test for your starting point.

If you’re new to PlantFit, don’t worry! We will schedule time for you to come in and learn the movements before your test, and remember: this challenge is about how much progress you can make on either your workout times, reps or amount of weight lifted rather than who can lift the most total weight so don’t worry about where you start.

Please Note:
To participate, you must be able to come to PlantFit (606 E. 11th St., Oakland, CA, 94606) for at least your start and finish tests. Sorry far away people!

Thanks all and we look forward to smashing some personal records with you!
