Does it really have to be a constant struggle to live a healthier lifestyle?

Welcome to my little corner of the web! I’m so grateful to have you. It is my intent to use my 16 years in health and fitness and my two and a half years as a plant based eater, to serve you by passing on all my knowledge in a fun and easily digestible way, and maybe share some laughs and get to know each other along the way. First of all, I’d like to thank you so much for stopping by, and offer a brief introduction. My name is Adonis, and when I’m not busy being a personal trainer, father, natural plant based bodybuilder, brother, or student,  I love to take the knowledge I’ve benefitted from applying in my own life, and pass it on. Health and fitness has been a lifestyle for me since I was 15 years old. In my own life, as well as in my nine years as a personal trainer, I’ve seen first hand the benefits of improving one’s health from not only a physical, but also mental, and emotional point of view. The benefits of making healthier choices for ourselves are too numerous to mention, but I’ll list a few of my favorites. Increased energy, increased confidence, improved balance, better sleep, a better sex life, reduced anxiety, and perhaps most importantly, tapping into our inner strength. A healthy lifestyle is literally like a key to superpowers for us, but, like most things that are truly rewarding, it takes work. That’s why it’s important to figure out how to make lifestyle changes that you enjoy. This way you can stick with them indefinitely, as opposed to radical changes that just aren’t sustainable. In other words, what I’m saying is that you have to find a way to make a healthy lifestyle work for you. For example, if you hate beets, don’t eat beets. Find healthy eating choices you do like. If you hate lifting weights, then don’t lift weights. Swim, or, hike, or dance, or ride a bicycle. If you hate the gym, don’t go to the gym. Get your workouts in outside. Explore and experiment. Find healthy options that you do like. This way, making healthy choices won’t be such a chore. Also, I wouldn’t recommend doing anything drastic, unless you want to. Make small, sustainable changes that you can stick with. Living a healthy life is about enjoying yourself, being balanced, and feeling great. Treating your body with integrity is a form of self love, torturing yourself with strict diets and workout routines that you hate is a form of abuse. More than spreading the message of adopting a plant based lifestyle, which is amazing by the way, that is the message I hope to leave you with. Health and fitness should feel good. It should be challenging at times, but enjoyable. If it’s making you miserable, then perhaps it’s time for a change. I hope you will apply some of this knowledge in your own life, and that it serves you in improving the quality of your life, as it has mine.

 

With All My Love,

Adonis Johnson

Yes, that’s me. Not bad for a vegan right?

 

About The Vegan Adonis

I'm a personal trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a plant-based eater, natural bodybuilder, and part time model, but more importantly a father, brother, friend, and spirit junkie (meditation, yoga, tree hugging, the works lol). I have always had a deep reverence for humanity, and as the years go by, I have become more and more consumed with a passion to help people in whatever way I am able to.
