Dani Taylor, a vegan and female bodybuilding champion for twenty years, was raised in a household that didn’t value a healthy lifestyle. Money was scarce and macaroni and cheese with hotdogs was a regular meal. Despite becoming a vegetarian at age twelve, Dani continued to be overweight, eventually reaching 210 pounds by age seventeen. While writing a research paper in high school, Dani stumbled upon veganism, and never looked back.
In the twenty years since then, Dani has completely turned her health around. She lost ninety pounds and went on to become a champion figure competitor and a full-time vegan bodybuilding coach. She and her husband Giacomo cofounded VeganProteins, an online vegan coaching hub. Also, they cofounded Team PlantBuilt, the world’s largest team of vegan-strength athletes. Now they tour the country with the Vegan Strong Team to promote a vegan fitness lifestyle.

Women’s Boot Camp
Many women are intimidated by the idea of strength training because they do not know where to start. In this women-only fitness class, we will use resistance bands as a first step to getting comfortable using resistance, rather than just bodyweight, to train our muscles. Set aside your inhibitions around strength training and join us for an inspiring session where you will learn how to use resistance bands for a portable, full-body workout in the company of other women.
