About the Actor

Robert, a vegan since 1986, has promoted vegan bodybuilding on a worldwide stage through articles in FLEX Magazine, Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness Magazine, VegNews Magazine, dozens of other publications, as well as his documentaries and websites. Being a vegan, he feels that he has a positive impact on the environment and society and believes that an animal-free diet is one of the best things you can do for your health. His background is multifaceted and includes pursuits in health and fitness, world travel, communication, public speaking, business management, motivational lectures, leadership, writing, massage therapy, competitive bodybuilding, working with children, and event organizing. Founder and president of his own company, Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness in 2002, Robert spends his time traveling around North America speaking at various health, wellness, vegetarian, personal development, and fitness festivals. Brendan Brazier is a professional Ironman triathlete, bestselling author on performance nutrition, and the creator of an award-winning line of whole food nutritional products called VEGA. He is also a two-time Canadian 50km Ultra Marathon Champion. In 2006, Brendan was invited to address US Congress on Capitol Hill, where he spoke of the significant social and economic benefits that could be achieved by improving personal health through better diet. The focus of his speech was to draw attention to the role that food plays in the prevention of most chronic diseases currently plaguing North Americans. Brendan has become a renowned speaker and sought-after presenter throughout North America, helping individuals and businesses thrive by sharing his dietary stress-busting program, The Thrive Diet. Tonya Kay is an award-winning actress, award-winning writer, professional dancer, danger artist, world-traveling conservationist, raw vegan celebrity. As a stage performer, Tonya Kay has toured for 3 years in STOMP, flown in the aerial phenom De La Guarda, toured with Panic At The Disco and Kenny Rogers, danced in New York and LA concert tap dance companies and currently performs burlesque with the The Lalas in Hollywood's hot spots.

This video is pretty informative and good for people just starting out,but if you have been vegan it dosnt really give too much new advice, most of its common sense (ie dont eat a lot of junk food even if it is vegan) I also think Tonya while well meaning is sort of a stereotype a lot of people have about vegans (nomad-hippies etc) and this image makes a lot of people unwilling to try veganism......all in all this film is pretty much for people who arejust starting out

This is a d.i.y. take on veganism for athletes. Keep that in mind- the focus is more on athletes and their training and how veganism works for them. Hence the title Vegan Fitness.

It's fairly comprehensive, and a great companion to Thrive Diet. You see them shopping, cooking, and working out. It's for converts seeking practical fitness and dietary advice. Given the severe lack of that information, this is a great place to start.

I'm not a bodybuilder, however I found that I didn't need to be one to learn from this DVD and to be inspired by it. This low-budget DVD is a labour of love, as these three seem quite close, and it has an authenticity about it that I really liked.

Robert, Brendan and Tonya are vibrant examples that it certainly is possible to thrive on a plant-based diet and be competetive in the fitness industry. Robert Cheeke is a bodybuilder, Brendan is a triathlete and Tonya is infact a professional dancer. Each of them are filmed going shopping, where they introduce the viewer to their favourite foods. As their fitness goals are unique, so their diets differ. Then we are privy to their respective fitness regimes. Robert is filmed at a Pot Luck Vegan get-together, Brendan is filmed at a practice race (where he wins!) and there is a focus on Tonya's Poi practice. This DVD introduced me to Tonya. She's an accomplished dancer and a vibrant personality - someone I'll definitely watch out for.

This DVD also provides extensive interviews with Brendan, Tonya and Robert. Overall it's a joy to watch, as it keeps a very positive focus.
