August 24, 2015 1 min read

When you think of how a bodybuilder gets totally ripped, you probably envision them eating plates and plates of meat and eggs. Protein-loading, right? But a new breed of plant-based bodybuilders are taking over, and they say that eating meat is for wimps. "I wanted to prove that a body can be powered by and built on nothing but cruelty free, plant based foods." explains 31-year-old Erin Fergus, a vegan heavyweight bodybuilding competitor. "There’s certainly no need to eat meat to build muscle! An athletic career can be fuelled through intelligent nutrition on a plant-based lifestyle." vegan body builder Nutritionists agree that protein sources don't need to be animal-based to provide incredible results. Vegan protein powders are becoming more and more prevalent on the market, adding additional bulk to an already muscle-building diet. Gone are the days when vegetarians and vegans were thought to be 'under-nourished' by their eating plans. Most vegan bodybuilders consume a lot of berries, rice cakes, tofu, green beans, lentils, nut butters and almond milk along with their favourite vegan protein powder. fitness muscle building diet 25-year-old Max Seabrook is a totally buff vegan fitness fanatic who says eliminating animal products was the best decision of his life. "No living being should have to suffer for me to reach my goals." Erin adds, reinforcing why she, and so many other vegan bodybuilders are so passionate about sticking to their diets.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
