Hey guys! It’s Dave “the geek”. We had a really interesting interview lined up for this episode but they had an unexpected emergency and a vital part of the team wasn’t feeling well. So, in the spirit of the olympics we’re going to replay one of our most popular episodes, our interview with Robert Cheeke, successful vegan bodybuilder, author, and entrepreneur. We had some great feedback about his episode so we know new and season listeners will enjoy. See you next week guys!
Robert grew up on a farm in Corvallis, OR where he adopted a vegan lifestyle in 1995 at age 15. 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 his latest book, Shred It!.
As a two-time natural bodybuilding champion, Robert is considered one of VegNews magazine’s Most Influential Vegan Athletes. He tours around the world sharing his story of transformation from a skinny farm kid to champion vegan bodybuilder. Robert is the founder and president of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness. He writes books, gives lectures around the world, and maintains the popular website, VeganBodybuilding.com. He is a regular contributor to Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine, a multi-sport athlete, entrepreneur, and has followed a plant-based diet for 20 years.
Robert was generous to sit down with us after a long trip (and before another) and talk about his book, training, diet, and keeping your eye on the goal. We’re certain anyone from the novice to the seasoned lifter can get a lot from what Robert brings to the table.
