I've been up in Canada for the past few days speaking and working at the Taste of Health EarthSave Festival in Vancouver, B.C.
The Vegan Fitness Team were some of the main speakers in the largest auditorium and presented on the same stage as Erik Marcus and other Keynote speakers.
Tonya Kay, Brendan Brazier and myself had the stage for an hour on Saturday sharing our Vegan Fitness lives with the crowd, showed a trailer for our film 'Vegan Fitness - Built Naturally' and answered questions from the audience. We did the same thing on Sunday up on the main stage. Brendan and Tonya both had individual talks and I worked at the Vega/Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness booth. It was mostly a Vega booth, as I am one of their sponsored athletes, but I also had Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness info/clothing available and we had a trailer of the film playing at the booth as well. I also switch back and forth from wearing my vegan shirt and my Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness shirt. Both, of course were sleeveless
I'll post some photos soon.
I'm still up in Canada, staying with Brendan right now but I'll be returning to Oregon tomorrow, assuming I'm allowed back in the US
It was a fun time, and I was able to interact with hundreds of people and promote our Vegan Fitness lifestyle up on stage with a microphone and all day working at the booth giving out samples of the new Vega raw food bars, and the Vega meal replacement powder.
It was also cool to see Brendan and Tonya again since we all have very busy lives and live in different countries.
All in all, I think we reached a lot of people, presenting Vegan Fitness with enthusiasm, which was appreciated by many, and I personally had fun meeting lots of new people in the Vegan community.
Because of my full-time job in Oregon working in Security, I am not able to attend many events so it was great to out and do something away from home and away from behind the computer screen.
Out of the many hundreds of vendors and visitors I was the most muscular person there (I should hope so) so that was cool. I'm also just a couple of weeks away from a bodybuilding contest so I was in pretty good shape too, which was nice for many to see.
I'll try to post some photos when I get home, wish me a safe drive, it's a good 7 hours or so.
Catch you soon,
