About Vegan Liftz

VL_ABOUT-US

Hello to all practicing and new vegans and welcome to Vegan Liftz!

Here you will find everything you need to know on the most current news, ideas, and more of vegan diets and the vegan lifestyle.

WHO WE ARE

We are a team of diverse individuals striving to provide you the best quality information on supplements, health, and overall lifestyle topics. 

Our team is comprised of individuals who are vegan lifestyle coaches, nutritional scientists, medical professionals, coaches, and more. 

With our years of experience in vegan fitness and nutrition, here at Vegan Liftz, we believe that being vegan can be tasty, exciting, and enjoyable. With our team, we have set out time to research foods, exercise equipment, and more that are all vegan-based.

WHAT WE DO

At Vegan Liftz, we believe it is possible to engage in a plant-based lifestyle while remaining physically active. You can get ripped muscles just as those who do not practice plant-based eating tactics do. 

We provide you with exercises, scientifically-backed supplement recommendations, articles about fitness and nutrition, and guides to help you become the healthiest vegan you can be. 

Not only do we do this, we too strive to give you evidence-based research on all things that encompass your health. We continuously grow to provide quality information to both vegans and non-vegans through all of our topics. We help you begin or continue your plant-based journey.

For more information, feel free to contact us.

Growing up, he would have a bite of meat here and there, but he has gone full vegan five years ago. The benefits to his health, fitness, and overall well-being were undeniable and he hasn’t touched any animal-based food since then.

I'm a bit of a vegan weirdo. To keep fit I skateboard, as well as practicing crossfit, and meditative yoga. I look after my body mostly so that when I'm older it'll look after me. Also I want to be one of those cool bearded grandpas you overtaking the youngers on epic hikes.

As a writer I'm a poet and the lyricist for a hip hop/blues band. I've been a freelance copywriter for years now and I love my job and the nomadic life it gives me. I've always been passionate about the power of words and fascinated in making them sing.
