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.

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

Hey guys, thank you so much for such a wonderful turnout for the Grand Opening of PlantFit Strength & Conditioning and FitQuick Cafe on January 17th, 2015. We had a great turnout! Holly and I couldn’t be more thankful for such a wonderful and supportive community. So for this event, we held a raffle fundraiser for Animal Place, and we sold 152 tickets and raised $400! So rad! It is so cool knowing we get to help animals in need just by doing what we love. This business could not exist if it wasn’t for the community of ethically minded individuals who want to feel great in their own skin. Thank you for everything you do in creating a more compassionate world for all.
Hey guys, we made the cover!!!
My partner Holly and I flew to Austin last July for the 2014 PlantBuilt Team Competition and we had the chance to do a photo shoot with the kind folks over at www.veganhealthandfitnessmag.com It was a wonderful experience and we are honored to say we made the cover! This magazine now has distribution all over the world and can be found in nationwide stores such as Target, Whole Foods, Safeway, Barnes & Noble, and many other natural food stores. Thank you so much for following and be sure to pick up a copy next time you are out.
In Fitness and for the Animals,
PlantBuilt Rolled Deep this year! With over 30 Athletes who follow a 100% Vegan Diet and lifestyle, we competed and won in various Athletic Competitions, from CrossFit to PowerLifting, to Bikini, Figure, Men’s Physique, and BodyBuilding. We set out to prove that consuming animals and their by-products is simply a choice. This is a choice that the cow, chicken, pig, or fish did not have any say in. They are slaves and victims to the animal agriculture industry. Every time you choose an animal product, you choose to support enslavery, isolation, depression, neglect, torture, and finally murder of an innocent creature. Every living being simply wants to live and be free from tyranny, just as all of us do. Why do you continue to think that animals (especially certain animals) are below you and do not deserve this basic consideration and the right to live? This is called Carnism by the way, and you can learn more at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vWbV9FPo_Q It is time to make a change and today is the day.
Every time you choose a plant-based alternative, you are supporting industries which grow fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, herbs, and seeds. This is the truly natural and compassionate alternative which spares all pain and suffering on innocent and beatiful creatures. I personally have lived like this for over 18 years, and there and more and more people reconsidering whether their values and ethics are supported by their lifestyle decisions. To learn more about us as a group, go to www.plantbuilt.com To learn about many more vegan athletes go to www.veganbodybuilding.com To learn more about compassionate dietary choices, go to http://www.veganoutreach.org/guide/ Here is another resourcehttp://vegankit.com/ Of course there is the Meat Your Meat Video athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32IDVdgmzKA If you need a registered Dietitian look up Matt Ruscigno at http://truelovehealth.com/about/ Here is a video he made a while back which I just so happen to be in about Vegan Health and Nutrition at http://vimeo.com/67348332 Also, to refute any nutritional arguments against a 100% Animal Free Healthy Diet, check out any video from the one and only Dr. Michael Greger athttp://nutritionfacts.org/ Oh yeah, and here are two Rad Companies who are revolutionizing how we see and comsume Meat and Eggs,http://beyondmeat.com/ and http://www.hamptoncreek.com/
Alright all, thanks for listening to my rant! Thanks so much for following, and I invite you to join me and millions of others in making the world a more peaceful place for all living beings.
