Training Hard


Recommended Posts

Hello all you lovely vegan body building and fitness people!

My name is Emma, but people call me Emz or Emzy. I’m 27 years old and I live in the UK. I’ve been vegan since September 2005 and I’m having a party next weekend to celebrate the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.

Here’s my fitness story; I was always a fit kid. I was a dancer and I was very good at athletics as a result. When I hit 18, I discovered beer and cigarettes and it all went downhill from there. I put on quite a lot of weight and started the deadly cycle of yo- yo dieting. I ended up weighing around 13 stone, which is roughly 182lbs or 82.5kg. I looked terrible. When my ex-partner left, I decided I was going to turn my life around. I starting going to the gym five days a week and I got myself a personal trainer. I now weigh 70kg and look like your average person. Underneath the average however I am very strong. I’ve been weight lifting the whole time. Now I want to get ripped, or die trying as they say. I don’t want to look average. I want to look BUFF!

I already put the time and effort in, now it’s about pushing past the average person and excelling into something else. Not for anyone else, but for me.

My new partner is also vegan and shares a love of fitness. I kinda hate him a little bit because he is already ripped and now wants to get bigger.

Anyway, I’m hoping this forum will help me get to where I need to be. Finding in-depth information about females getting ripped is difficult and I know there are plenty of ripped females on here, so let’s get talking! 

Hey Emz, welcome to the group here. Sounds like that new partner of yours might provide some motivating compeition which can definitely help push you to progress faster.


I'm jealous, my GF is active but not into traditional fitness. We go hiking, snowboarding, kyaking and things like that keep her active.
