Hi there my names Adam Stansbury, I’m the Plant Powered PT and I get men and women fit, strong and healthy on a plant based diet.
In 2003 I began a 6 year stint as a model with fitness assignments and a couple of magazine covers, then in 2006 I suffered from the digestive illness Ulcerative Colitis and over 2 years I had 4 serious operations that led to the removal of my large intestine.
I then turned my hand to Fitness Modelling shows and began my Personal Training career in 2009, I went onto enter 5 fitness modelling shows in 2009,2010, 2011 and 2013 (2) and in 2013 I was awarded Gym Based Personal Trainer of the Year 2013 at the National Fitness Awards and I was part of the team at Winners 2000 in Devon who won National Gym of the Year 2012.
Then in 2014 I decided to make the change to a Plant Based Vegan Diet for ethical and environmental reasons. I also got “Be The Change” tattooed on my forearm in 2015 to remind me that changing the world starts with changing yourself first and the one thing we have complete control over each day that makes a huge impact to our environment is the food we eat.
For many years before I was a self confessed ‘Proteinaholic’ sacrificing the quality of the meat that I ate just so I could financially ensure all six of my daily meals contained some form of an animal protein that would support my muscular gains and avoid losing all that hard earned muscle I’d worked hard for in the gym.
Nothing could be further from the truth, I did lose weight initially but once my body adapted I have rebuilt a physique that is the same in stature, weight and strength, I’ve also helped other clients add lean muscle to their physiques on a Plant Based Diet.
I feel healthier and fitter than I have ever felt and I live with a clear conscience and am excited to discover what I can create with food, that I never thought was possible.
It’s getting increasingly important that we all realise the impact that our daily food choices are making on the world around us.
The majority of us are so focussed on our own body image and health goals without giving much thought to those that these choices affect, aka the animals and the environment.
My mission is to show men and women that you can get fit, strong and healthy on a plant based diet, transforming your body and the planet in the process.
