Many fitness experts will tell you that it's just not possible to become a serious bodybuilder without eating animal products. They spout facts about animal proteins and nutrients that your body needs to build muscle.

Robert Cheeke proves them all wrong.

Robert adopted a vegan lifestyle in 1995 at the age of 15! He transformed from a skinny farm kid to champion bodybuilder and became a two time winner in the Natural Bodybuilding World Championships, all while eating a whole foods plant based diet!

Today he is the best-selling author of the book “Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness – The Complete Guide to Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet”and is considered one of VegNews Magazine's Most Influential Vegan Athletes. He regularly tours all over North America, inspiring athletes and aspiring athletes with the story of his transformation from a scrawny kid to a world class bodybuilder.

Robert lives in Portland, Oregon where he continues to educate about the benefits of a plant based lifestyle by speaking, writing, filming documentaries and sharing his experiences as an accomplished vegan athlete on his website,
