A series discussing all things vegan fitness and lifestyle related and chatting with inspiring vegans who are out there changing the game!
Today, I have the pleasure of speaking with the vegan fitness power couple themselves, Dani Taylor and Giacomo Marchese.
Dani and Giacomo have been involved in the vegan fitness space for years now and originally met through the VeganBodybuilding.com message boards around 2008 during a meet-up event.
They started their joint business Vegan Proteins shortly after which was an online storefront for all kinds of vegan protein brands. Over the years, they eventually converted it to a vegan fitness coaching team as the online storefront space became more competitive and have now also started Vegan Strong, which is a similar team consisting of athletes, nutritionists, authors and coaches with a goal of educating others at events about building a strong, healthy and impressive body on a plant based diet. They also started its subsidiary called Plantbuilt, which is a collective of high level, plant based strength and physique athletes who compete at events.
Dani and Giacomo truly walk-the-walk also, and have both competed at high levels in both bodybuilding and other sports themselves.
Dani and Giacomo get into the details of how they met, their reasons for going vegan, what drew them to fitness and competing, how plant based foods have evolved over the years, building muscle and strength on a plant based diet, and so much more.
This was a really great episode with two amazing and influential people in the vegan fitness space and I think you’ll enjoy their stories and commentary just as much as I did!
Dani can be found on Instagram at @veganproteins and Giacomo can be found at @musclesbybrussels . Check out their coaching website at veganproteins.com and their vegan health and fitness collectives at veganstrong.com and plantbuilt.com. They also have a podcast called Muscles by Brussels Radio which can be found on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and more.
Thanks so much again to Dani and Giacomo and without further ado, enjoy the show!
