Hey guys, we made the cover!!!
Holly and I flew to Austin in 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.
Hey guys, I was featured on the Strongest Hearts Web Series! Check it out here.

Hey guys, I recently wrote an article for http://www.veganbodybuilding.com on veganizing a meat and nut breakfast. Check it out and let me know what you think! http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=article_ed_003
We are a hosting the PlantFit Fall Fitness Challenge. Registration is $20. The rules are simple. Get your bodyfat measured by me (Ed Bauer) or Jason Morris today, tomorrow, Monday, or Tuesday. You then have until Monday, September 30th to get measured again. Who ever has the highest percentage of body composition change (body fat down, and lean muscle up) will win! The winner will receive 1/2 of the total registration fees by all registered contestants. The other 1/2 of the registration $ will be donated to Out To Pasture Sanctuary. http://www.outtopasturesanctuary.org/ That means, the more people who register, the higher the donation is.
So in one crisp month-long effort, you can improve your health, your strength, your flexibility, your endurance, your clothes will fit better, AND you’ll be helping all the wonderful animals at Out To Pasture. Plus if you win, you get a lump of cash to go with it. Pretty sweet deal!
Email us at plantfitpdx@gmail or call at 503.753.4279 to set up a time to get measured.
PlantFit Training Studio is celebrating its Two Year Anniversary already! Thank you so much for making this happen! During this event, we want to do a few things. First off, we want to show off our space to those of you who haven’t seen it yet. Second, we want to offer a free (yet optional) workout for those new to PlantFit to get a taste of what our workouts are all about. We will also have food for sale from one or two of Portland’s Vegan Food Cart Vendors, and we will announce the PlantFit Fall Fitness Challenge! This will be your chance to learn about how to drop unwanted fat, build lean muscle, increase flexibility, feel better, and have fun doing it. As you could expect, we will also provide information on how to do this on a completely plant-based diet!
The Event starts Saturday, August 31t at 10am. The Free Group Workout starts at 10:30am. Food will be available after the workout, around 11:15am. We will also officially announce the PlantFit Fall Fitness Challenge! Come check out our location under the Hawthorne Bridge and support Portland’s only dedicated Vegan Fitness Facility. You can make your reservation at https://www.facebook.com/events/356107484492820/ Thanks all! We hope to see you there!
As we are gearing folks up for the Race For The Animals presented by NW Veg on June 30th, http://nwveg.org/race_for_animals we will be running again. This time, we are running at the Waterfront. Meet at PlantFit Training Studio as we normally would on Saturday morning at 9am. Then from there, we will make the run as a group. Everyone can run at their own pace so don’t be shy if you are worried about keeping up. This is a fun chance to get outside and practice good healthy habits as a community! See you there!
Hey guys, we will be coaching classes Monday through Friday at both 5pm and 6pm. If the 6pm was getting a little too crowded for you, the 5pm option will open it up for the new folks to join in. We have been completely thrilled with the progressions that everyone has been making! We feel truly thankful that we are able to share in this process of reaching new levels of fitness together! Keep it up everyone. I feel like the PlantFit crew will be setting some serious PR’s this year!
