In this video, I speak with Robert Cheeke, the founder and president of the Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness. Robert grew up on a farm in Corvallis, Oregon where he adopted a vegan lifestyle in 1995 at the age of 15 years old, weighing just 120 pounds. He is now the author of numerous books such as, Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, Shred It!, Plant-Based Muscle, and his newest release, The Plant-Based Athlete.
Robert is often referred to as the “Godfather of Vegan Bodybuilding,” growing the industry from infancy in 2002, to where it is today. 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. He is a regular contributor to No Meat Athlete, Forks Over Knives, and Vegan Strong, is a multi-sport athlete, entrepreneur, and has followed a plant-based diet for more than 25 years. Robert lives in Colorado with his wife and two rescued Chihuahuas.
