Vegan personal trainers

#1 Postby Jax43615 » Mon Mar 10, 2014 8:26 pm

I am interested doing a bikini or figure competition next year and could use some advice on the trainer I choose.

I live in OH and am having trouble finding a vegan personal trainer if I do choose to give a shot at competing. Is it essential that I find a vegan trainer even if I never get to see them in person?

I know that I can always ask any potential trainers how they feel about coaching someone on a vegan diet because I would think that many are used to preacribing chicken-and-egg-white diets. I am just looking for some guidance :D

Hi Jax,

Most trainers are not qualified to dispense nutritional advice, their operating outside the field of expertise (Unless the trainer has formerly studied nutrition). If its nutritional advice your after, I would recommend you see a qualified sports nutritionist.For training, no, its not essential to see a trainer face to face, i had phone consultations with the former Mr Universe and HIT pioneer Mike Mentzer in the late 90s, i learned a massive amount from him about the true nature of exercise and many other things, he tough me how to fish (meteorically speaking).

Best
Rob
