What clients have achieved
Pernille Rasmussen, Multi-Media Designer, Denmark
“MyVeganPersonalTrainer gets my best recommendations! The Workout and Nutrition plans are made exactly according to how they can be best implemented in my daily life, and relevant changes to the programs are regularly made. Rémi is a dedicated personal trainer, whose motivation and engagement are infectious, and he is able to make you feel very comfortable in situations which are new or uncommon. Not only have I gotten much fitter, Rémi also guides and supports you with the mental aspects that follow on a fitness journey, for which I am very grateful. I have changed habits, which I did not believe were possible to change and I have gone from finding everything about a gym intimidating and embarrassing, to see it as my sanctuary in my everyday life. I make better decisions for myself and I have gotten a healthier balance between food and training, thanks to MyVeganPersonalTrainer!”
Pernille Lassen, Primary School Teacher, Denmark
"Rémi helped me lose weight. I can definitely recommend him, if you wish a healthy approach to training. I have never been in greater shape, and he is great at motivating and cheering up, when it is necessary💪🏼 I have realised that nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand, and that you should not be afraid to fail, because there is only one way, and that’s forward! 🏋🏼♀️“
Kenni Nielsen, Model & Aspiring Pilot, Denmark
“I started out without big expectations, but with Rémi´s knowledge and experience, this has lead to a weight loss of 14 kg+ and I have become much stronger the last 3 months. The best thing with his service is clearly that if you are not satisfied with the least in the program(training or nutrition programs), he makes sure that it gets fixed ASAP. The 14 kg+ weight loss was not a walk in the park, but Rémi´s weekly follow-up meetings made it easier by providing motivation and support.
I couldn’t be more satisfied about my time with Rémi, so if you are ready for a change in your lifestyle, or you want more out of your training, then I can totally recommend MyVeganPersonalTrainer.”
Sandi Besíc, Bioanalytical Student, Denmark
“I started slowly working out. Rémi´s program lead me to lose around 25 kg +. It made me become physically stronger, and mentally too. The service was extremely good, we worked out together and I could definitely feel the knowledge he had. I couldn´t be more satisfied about the program he made, I only recommend him if you wanna lose some weight or if you just wanna become physically stronger.”
Mario, Biotechnologist, Netherlands

My favourite movie is “The Matrix”. After reading my story you will understand why.
I have woken up from “The Matrix” twice . The first time lead me to building the body & mind of my dreams, the second time lead me to going vegan.
I have been following the path that was given by norms of society, the first 20 years of my life.
“Go to school, get a good job, get married, be happy!”
“You need milk for calcium and meat for protein!”
I didn´t question anything one bit.
It lead me to going all-in with my studies. So much that I actually became “Student of the Year” multiple times in a row when growing up.
15-year-old me getting caught in the middle of exam preparation.
I was eating meat and dairy like most people, and I LOVED it!
Following my childhood tradition of always eating directly from the big lamb bone.
“Student of the Year” sounds great no? But I was NOT happy. EVERY other aspect of my life was suffering and not in balance. I had poor social skills, I had never dated a girl, I often got bullied and I was not living a healthy lifestyle. I felt extremely insecure and weak as a person. I would always value other people´s opinion over my own, even if I would have a more informed opinion! I was not only weak mentally, but also physically. I was extremely skinny, and could barely do a push-up. I realised that the lack of taking care of my body and health was causing a major part of my misery, and therefore I had to make it a priority!
Eating meat and dairy sounds fine no? But after I stumbled upon the documentary Forks Over Knives and got introduced to the possibility of living on a plant-based diet, I was hooked.. One documentary lead to the next . Soon enough, it all clicked. I realized that because it is possible to live and strive on a plant-based diet, therefore it is unnecessary and unethical to be killing millions of animals every single day, just because they taste good. And taking into consideration the negative impact the animal industry has on the environment and human health, it just fortified my decision of going vegan.
At first I didn´t know what I was doing. I was actually confused about what I read different places online.
One site said carbs are good, another said carbs are bad.
One site said you can´t live on a vegan diet, another said that you can thrive on a vegan diet.
It was a jungle of information! I felt confused, lost and insecure.
I tried so many different training programs that I could find online, but I didn´t really feel any progress.
I was desperate, I really wanted to go vegan to save the lives of animals and respect the environment. I even had a lot of difficulty in saying goodbye to meat and cheese, which just taste so good! I would often end up stuffing my face in a cheese burger. I would feel terrible whenever I did it. My excuse was that it was OK, since I did not know how to go vegan.
I realized I needed to get professional help to get me to my fitness goal and to transitioning safely to a vegan diet, and not waste my time reading about it on some random facebook group.
I hired a coach to make a customised training and nutrition plan for me and my goals. And that´s when things started moving! I was actually building muscle and getting stronger! This motivated me to learn even more about how training and nutrition worked together, leading me to even becoming a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. The transformation of going from being skinny and weak to strong and muscular, also lead to a stronger mindset. I had a lot more confidence in myself! Life outside the gym got easier too. My social skills improved A LOT.
In order to safely transition to being vegan, I hired a nutritionist to teach me everything there is to know about a vegan diet. I learned how to replace the animal food sources with plant-based food sources. I gradually decreased my consumption of animal products, and as I got to know more vegan products and recipes, my diet got more veganised. When cravings for meat or cheese would show up, I would remind myself of WHY I chose to go vegan, and this helped me stay on track EVEN when I would attend social dinners that would serve meat.
Today I am a fit and healthy vegan living on his own terms. I have the body of my dreams and I am no longer the shy introverted guy. I hang out with like-minded people and date girls I want to date. All meals I prepare are vegan AND delicious.

I have no cravings for meat or cheese anymore. I actually have a lot of fun discovering new restaurants, products and recipes to share with the world. And the best of it all is knowing that I am part of a movement bigger than myself that strives for a world of health, compassion and respect to the planet, animals and human beings.
My experience from waking up from “The Matrix” twice has led me to the following slogan:
Change Your Mindset – Change Your Life
Because perspective is everything!
Normalise plant-based well-being for 1 billion and 1 humans.
