VeganBodybuilding.com was started by Robert Cheeke in 2003; back then, the term "vegan" was uncommon and no one had heard of any serious "vegan bodybuilder."
Robert wanted to change that, and show the world that with unwavering commitment and years of hard work, a vegan could compete and win bodybuilding competitions, at the national, professional level.
Along the way, he inspired many fellow athletes, amateur and pro, to follow their conscience, AND perform better than they ever had as omnivores or vegetarians.
This website experienced a lot of growth all through the 2000's, and for half of the 2010's. After a hiatus of a couple years, in 2021 we're back on a new platform, and ready to continue sharing and inspiring. At the same time, Robert passed his 25th year as a vegan athlete in 12/2020, and can show the world that long-term vegan strength and fitness is entirely achievable, with knowledge and persistent practice.
Welcome back, and welcome aboard!
