Regardless of who you are or how you eat, fitness is vital if you want to enjoy life now and avoid problems later. Vegan fitness has become a thing largely because of previous misconceptions – Hello, not-enough-protein-brigade! ?? – but that is rapidly changing thanks to the rise in world-class vegan athletes such as:
Venus Williams – David Haye – Tia Blanco – Lewis Hamilton – Scott Jurek – Rich Roll – Nate Diaz – Georges Laraque – Jermain Defoe…the list goes on
For ordinary vegans like you and me, however, staying fit is more about feeling healthy and steering clear of health issues in later life rather than excelling in an individual sport or discipline.
The good news here is that you don’t need to train endlessly in order to reap many of the benefits associated with regular exercise providing you focus on that very important word – regular. Consistency is key, so it makes sense to choose an activity that you enjoy rather than one you’re going to hate every second of. Don’t do something you don’t like. That rule applies to everyone, vegan or not.
So, in case there’s any doubt:
Yes, you can train successfully on a vegan diet!
Yes, you can reach a level of fitness that will make you both happier and healthier!
Yes, you can lift weights to increase strength!
Yes, you can improve your cognitive function with vegan fitness!
Yes, you can work out as a vegan to help with weight loss if that’s your goal!
Yes, YOU can do it!
Of course, becoming a fit vegan doesn’t stop at exercise. There’s your diet (so long, Oreos), sleep, and overall well-being to consider, too, if you want to get the best from your body and live and long and healthy life. Thankfully, we’ve got your back here at Happy Happy Vegan and our aim is to cover all aspects of healthy living as the site grows and takes shape.
