Meet the Real-Life Vegan Spider-Man
Let’s talk about free running.
Free running is all about expressing yourself in an environment without any limitations on movement.
Example: You want to get from point A to point B as fast as possible, but there’s a wall, a bench, and a set of stairs in your way. Do you go around those obstacles? Nope. You go through them—or rather over them—as awesomely as possible.
Let’s now talk about Tim Shieff.
Tim Shieff is a world champion professional English free runner. He has competed on American Ninja Warrior, has appeared in a Harry Potter film (the ultimate measure of success in my book), and is considered one of the most successful athletes in the world. Tim Shieff is also vegan.
When you have to push your body to the limit, it takes more than sheer willpower and determination. Being an athlete of this caliber means staying in peak physical condition and having all the protein and nutrients you need in order to get through your grueling workout sessions.
Fueling yourself with a plant-based diet is the best thing that you can do for your body. Among the many benefits of eating vegan meals are:
- Lower cholesterol
- Reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, and strokes
- Increased energy
- Getting to brag that some of the strongest people in the world are vegan
This officially puts the protein myth to bed, right? I thought so. 😉
