4 Reasons You Need a VEGAN Fitness Coach
You’ve made the commitment to a vegan lifestyle or plant-based diet. And at the same time it’s important for you to stay in shape.
You may be on the lookout for a personal trainer or coach to help you reach your fitness goals. But a challenge with many conventional fitness trainers is their often outdated ideas about which foods are best to build muscle and strength.
The very last question you want from a fitness coach is: “Where do you get your protein??”
If your personal trainer is clueless about plant-based sources of protein, it’s time to look elsewhere…
It’s time to look for a vegan coach.
I’m a vegan certified personal trainer with a mission to help people reach their fitness targets and reap the numerous health benefits of a diet fuelled entirely by plants.
Here are 4 ways you’ll benefit from training with a vegan coach like me:
1. A vegan coach will optimize your diet according to your personal needs
Whether you’re a newbie or long-time vegan, or even just vegan-curious and looking to transition to a plant-based diet, a vegan coach can guide you on your vegan fitness journey.
In addition to sessions in yoga and strength training, I also provide guidance on plant-based nutrition.
If you’re training intensively for a fitness goal like a marathon, or have a weight loss target you’re aiming to reach, you’ll want to know how to get the most out of your diet. Together we can tailor a custom meal plan, just for you.
With the right fuel made up of nutritious vegan foods, you’ll reach your goals while giving your overall health a major boost.
We’ll tweak your nutrition plan and work out how much you need to eat, and I’ll tell you which foods have the highest nutrient density. We’ll also figure out how to schedule your meals in a way that works best for you, and yes, figure out exactly how much protein you need!
2. You’ll be living and glowing proof that vegan fitness brings results
As we know, eating a vegan or plant-based diet has many benefits, and one is the spike it gives your energy and fitness levels.
With my background in health and fitness, and as a vegan certified personal trainer who practices what I preach, I can help you gain a better understanding of how your body works.
Powered exclusively by plants, you can work up to the strength and muscle gain you need for your preferred sport or fitness activity. The tangible benefits of vegan training you’ll notice will not only include increased performance, but also improved vitality.
You’ll play better, sleep better, and ultimately live better.
Your plant-strong bod will not only kick butt, but also be the living (and glowing!) proof that plant-powered fitness is queen!
3. You’ll learn the truth about protein
We all know that “getting enough protein” is not at all difficult with a vegan diet. As long as you’re eating a varied diet of vegan protein sources like beans, tofu, and quinoa for example, you can easily reach your protein requirements.

What about plant-based protein powder? Isn’t this necessary for that extra protein kick?
With a healthy vegan diet made up of whole foods, you should be able to meet your protein needs easily. But sometimes protein powder can provide a quick and easy way to get that little extra, depending on your specific fitness goals. This is something we can consider together.
4. A vegan coach will take you to the next level
By hiring a vegan coach as opposed to a non-vegan coach, you will gain a loyal supporter of your plant-based health and fitness.
A vegan coach may just push you to go that little bit further so you can surpass your goals – yes, even on a plant-based diet.
After changing over to veganism, many fitness lovers and sports professionals experience a significant boost to their performance.
Here are a few examples of professional athletes who have upped their game after switching to plant power:
