New Vegan Gym for January 2015…

Hey all, I have been MIA from social media for a while, but I have some big news to announce! I will be opening a new Vegan Gym in Oakland, CA in January 2015. I don’t want to say the committed name quiet yet (though that should be obvious), or the exact address, though it is located just a few blocks Southeast of Lake Merritt. Here is a picture of the empty space. I can’t wait to build this out and start turning brussels into muscles in here. The vegan fitness movement is going strong! Stay tuned!

Oh yeah, it will be pup friendly!


Page Updates and PlantBuilt Fundraiser.

Hey guys, I updated the Getting Started & Pricing Tab on the site, as well as uploaded a Gallery page for me. Take a look if you are interested in a custom 3-Day Meal Plan, a 12-Week Transformation Package I now offer, or simply want to see a few photos. I promise I stay humble and do this for the animals. Thanks everyone!

 

Also, be sure to check out our video for the 2014 PlantBuilt Team and if you can make any contribution, we surely would appreciate it!

CrossFit Open 14.2 Video

Thanks again everyone!


2014 Reebok CrossFit Open so Far, Week 2, and 14.1 video.

Hey all, I just wanted to send out a quick update. It is currently the second week of the Worldwide Reebok CrossFit Open. Last I checked, I was sitting in 113th place (in the Northern California Region) out of  nearly 6,000 male competitors. I grabbed a screenshot when I was in 106th place! Only the top 45 men in each Region (17 Regions Worldwide) make it to the next stage of competition, but either way, I am having fun at GrassRoots CrossFit as the only Vegan Coach there, and here is the video of me performing 14.1. The 14.2 video will be my next post. Go to http://games.crossfit.com/ for a description of the workouts. Thanks for following guys! I’m excited to hear how everyone else does in the Open!
