Anyone going on this?http://www.atasteofhealth.org/
I'm involved in the cruise this year (as of last week) and I am promoting the event on Facebook, Twitter, here and other places. I plan to treat it like a Vegan Vacation but rather than have 20 of us, there will be about 1000 of us, including some forum members who will make it out.
I will be doing fitness classes, tons of training, and hopefully giving some talks. They said if I get enough people to sign up via my referrals, they will give me a speaking spot along with current speakers like T. Colin Campbell, Will Tuttle and many others.
I live in Florida now too so I can easily just drive to the port and hop on the ship. The cruise falls on my birthday too.
We'll be in Jamaica on my 31st birthday. I've already invited my mother, family, friends and now posting here too. I'll post more as well, just haven't been online much. Out in Boston today, back home to FL tomorrow.
More details I posted on FB are here:
Hey Everyone! Please join me for a week of Caribbean sun and vegan fitness fun!
I've been invited to be involved with a 7-day vegan cruise! I'll be training everyday with whoever wants to join me, will be hanging out as much as possible and even celebrating my 31st birthday the day we're in Jamaica!
If enough people register for the cruise per my referral, they will also give me a speaking spot along with speakers such as T. Col...in Campbell, Will Tuttle, and a bunch of other awesome people I know and others whom I'm excited to meet.
For everyone who registers for the cruise and uses me as a referral, I will give each of you a nice thank you gift of a signed copy of my book, a Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness t-shirt, some Vega and likely other things I collect to pass on between now and late February. Just to say thanks for coming out to the Caribbean to spend a week with me and about 1000 other vegans for an awesome time and for my birthday
I'm inviting family and friends, and also attempting to bring back the "Vegan Vacations" I started in 2006, but without having to organize anything as the event is already in place and this is the 8th year. I'd love to spend a week with a bunch of my Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness friends, Facebook and Twitter friends.
This can be our NEW Annual Vegan Vacation. I know I'm in. Pumped!
Let's chill.....in the sun!
Here is some general info. Remember, when you sign up, mention my name to help get me on the speaker list and then let me know so I can ship you the bonus stuff you'll get from me personally as a thank you from the birthday boy
I'm already all set to go...now I'm just looking to get my friends to come join me. Will you?
