Why Vegan Weight Training is Different When You Don't Eat Meat or Dairy

Updated: Sep 22, 2020

Vegan fitness is slightly different from a standard fitness program because a good fitness plan with guaranteed results relies on the right diet.  I use the 40% carbs, 40% protein, and 20% good fats to get results for my clients. This level of protein consumption for many vegans is hard to achieve. But, it doesn't have to be. Plants are really high in protein and beans and pulses offer significantly higher reusable amounts of protein than meat does. For any vegan diet to be supreme to that of a meat-based diet it has to contain at least one cup of beans daily. This raises your protein levels significantly and provides lots of macro nutrients too.  FITNESS TRAINING  If you think I don’t know where you’ve been or where you are at this point in your journey you are very wrong. I've spent hours and hours doing endless cardio, drinking nothing but water and eating veg, rice and beans, only to have crashed and burned because I'm so tired that the three hours a day training sessions I carry out on a bulking up diet have worn me out. After achieving the perfect figure I went back to my normal lifestyle and put the fat back on! I gained back the weight until I couldn’t fit into my clothes. It was upsetting and I sat there wondering how it could have happened, how I could have let it happen and how I could fix it. It happened quite easily. I was working in a dead-end job with people I didn't enjoy working with this contributed significantly to the problems at hand, so I changed it. It took years to get back to feeling healthy and happy and to feel good in my own skin again. By keeping my workouts on track, eating home-cooked food, and lifting heavyweights I started to reverse the damage. Lifting weights helped me to achieve much more than cardio ever did, but combined they work miracles. I very quickly learnt that it's the mindset that makes all the difference to the results you gain. How you feel about YOU can make or break your change and transformation. As a personal trainer, I offer different types of training sessions that are designed to suit a specific issue. Whether it's a lack of movement due to an injury, weight gain, lack of balance or poor posture or simply a different training routine I can provide a tailored program just for you. With this program, you will be able to achieve the results that you really want. There's only one person that can achieve that perfect you . . . and that's you!


Sustainability Training in terms of fitness training acknowledges that everyone is different, has their own lifestyle, likes and hates along with time and money shortages. Sustainability encompasses your wants and needs and works them into a program of fitness and nutrition that is sustainable long term.


We are all busy all of the time but there's always room for improvement. We have busy schedules, we love to spend the night on the sofa with Netflix, go out for meals and drinking nights out on the town. But all of this leads to weight gain and poor health. If only there was a way to do all of this and keep fit and healthy, lose weight and tone up. Good news, there is, I have a Lifestyle Training system that works with your lifestyle to improve your mental and physical health.

You're never too old to improve your mental and physical fitness levels. As you get older your muscles naturally reduce but together we can prevent this from happening. Using a variety of light weights and body-weight exercises I can put you back on track to optimal health and wellbeing. You'll no longer feel your age as you'll have higher than normal energy levels and you'll be able to achieve more than you ever thought possible. As good health and happiness go hand in hand.


If you are over 40 and you  have let time and life take over your health then this could be a plan for you. I use a weight based management training plan to ensure that you achieve your optimum health within a relatively short time. The rest is up to maintenance and hoe you build training into your day to day life. I can create a plan that works for you and keeps you on the straight and narrow path to otimal health and wellbeing.
