(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: I will be taking the stage between 12pm-2pm. I hope to see you there! Tickets are $40 and are available at

This event will be available on livestream for $19.95. The link for those who cannot attend in person is

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

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 for the links to join live or watch the recordings anytime and follow along.

Previous Location Setup

Let’s start out with our 14 foot wide freestanding Rogue Infinity Rig. It has four squat racks, and lots of Pull Up Bars at various heights. We are a fully Rogue Outfitted Facility so expect to see this brand a lot! There is also a bare steel Speal Bar in the center. Attached is the Rogue Glute Ham Developer attached to a Wags & Weights Doghouse/3 sided Plyometric Box. The green line on the wall is 9 feet high and the white line above it is 10 feet high for wallball shots.


We have lots of open space for metabolic drills and Olympic Weightlifting.


We also have a Private Office for Consultations.


We have a Rogue Gun Rack with 3 Rogue Castro Bars (45 pounds), 3 Rogue Bella Bars (33 pounds), and 3 Rogue Technique Bars (15 pounds).


We have 10 Jump Ropes for people 5’2″-6’4″ tall and assorted Rogue Superbands on a Rogue Wall Rack of course.


The Rogue or Apollo Brand Kettle Bells are 9, 18, 26, 35, 44, 53, and 70 pounds.


We have 1,345 pounds worth of weights.


Here are a few more angles of the space.


We have 5 sets of TRX Suspension Trainers.


Ok, now a list of equipment on our equipment shelf:

10 x Rogue AbMats, 5 x SlingShot Bench Bands, 6 x SlingShot Hip Circles, BenchBlokz Bench Board, 2 of each Rogue SlamBalls 15, 20, 30, 40, Gymnastics Chalk, 2 x 10 pound Sledgehammers for tire hits, FatGripz, MobilityWod Supernova, 15′ Agility Ladder, Classic Biceps Blaster, Pulling Harness for Sled Drags, SpudInc Farmers Walk Handles and a Rogue Deadlift Jack

Now on to the 65 foot Long Private Courtyard, and huge sliding doors, and puppies!

We have two tires. One weighs around 300 pounds. The other is about 120 pounds. These are great for tire flips, hammer hits, tire jumps and jump overs, step ups, and assisted pushups. They are very versatile for such a simple piece of equipment.


We also have the Rogue Westside Butcher Sled. We have 3 smaller Rogue E35 sleds that work great for rope sled pulls.


Ok, on to the Dumbbell Rack. We have Rubber Hex Dumbells at 5-50 pounds, as well as 75 and 100 pounds.


Here is another view of this side of the gym. Of course we have a California flag because you know, Oakland. We have 20 cubbies for people to put their personal belongings when they come in.


Here you will find 10 Black Foam Rollers, a Rumble Roller, and a TriggerPoint Therapy Roller.


We also have the complete set of Kelly Starret’s MobilityRx Posters for quick referencing.


Here are the 2 sets of 40 foot Battle Ropes and 2 Lifeline Power Wheels for easy ideas for small group training.


Here is another quick idea of a circuit with Incline Dumbell Press, Parrellete Dips, Russian Twists, and Kettlebell Swings. The workout ideas are literally endless with this space.


A few other pieces of equipment not necesarily pictured are Lacrosse Balls and PVC Pipes for Mobility, a Cambered Barbell, 2 pairs of Parrelettes, 2 x Rogue Incline Benches, and 2 x Rogue Flat Utility Benches.

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!
