Last night I had the honor of working out with Robert Cheeke.  He is known as “the most recognizable vegan body builder in the world” (as well as an author, lecturer and star of numerous documentaries on the subject of vegan body building).  I have been emailing him for a while now, and lucky for me, he didn’t write me off as a stalker.  He just moved to L.A. and is such a nice guy that he was willing to meet me (anybody want to buy a lock of his hair?  just kidding).  Anyway, getting to actually work out with my hero was a very cool thing for me!
