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.
The date is finally set! Saturday, January 17, 2015 is the official opening of PlantFit Strength and Conditioning as well as FitQuick Performance Cafe in Oakland, California. There is an optional workout starting at 11am. 12pm will be the beginning of the event which will feature Timeless Coffee, Samplings of Protein Donuts from FitQuick Cafe, and a Presentation from Keegan Kuhn, award winning co-director of the groundbreaking documentary Cowspiracy.

Hey all, I have been MIA from social media for a while, but I have some big news to announce! My partner and 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!
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,
