What people are saying about PlantKind’s services:

“I first met Kyle after hearing him give a presentation at VegFest.  At the time, I was training for my first Half Ironman triathlon and I was experiencing significant fatigue in my daily life and lack of energy during my training sessions.

I knew I had to change my diet somehow, but nothing I’d tried on my own had worked.  I had contacted a few sports nutritionists but they were apprehensive about taking on a vegan client.  When I heard Kyle talk, I knew he’d be a better fit for me so I contacted him to see if he’d be able to help me.  He agreed, and asked me to keep a food and training journal for a few days before we met.
When we met, he thoroughly analyzed my current food intake and compared it with my energy needs.  He made some simple changes to my diet and recommended some reading and online tools.  I was nervous at first, since one of the changes he recommended was hugely increasing my carb intake.

I’ve struggled with obesity my whole life and have typically tried to steer away from carbs in order to try to reduce my weight.  He asked me to give it just 3 weeks and if I didn’t like it, I could go back to my original diet.  I agreed to 3 weeks and started the next day.

I was stunned to discover that not only did my energy skyrocket, but I started dropping not only pounds, but fat as well.  I had lots of energy for training and, thanks to his suggestions, also had lots of energy on the day of my half ironman.

I have maintained this diet for six months now and see no point in going back to what didn’t work before.  I was so impressed with his attention to detail, his active listening and his knowledge.

People have asked me what I’m doing differently and I tell them all about Kyle.  He is truly inspirational.”

Kyle has built a custom fitness training plan for me and trained me to use it properly. He also provides me with occasional nutritional advice, and follows up.

Kyle was attentive to my lifestyle as busy professional when he designed the plan and included strength training helpful to my other sport activities and general well being.Kyle is attentive to details and listens well, is highly motivating with a combination of easy going yet firm guidance.

I’d recommend Kyle’s fitness and health training for everyone, including busy senior professionals like myself and including people of all skill levels who want to improve their lives.

Kyle is such a great guy! He graciously offered to give a talk at our Guest Speaker night for the uOttawa Veg Club. His presentation was well researched, informative and presented in a very energetic and confident manner.

I think many people when transitioning to Veganism can overcomplicate their diet, and forget about the basics of good (simple) food, water and sleep. He made a healthy plant based diet appear very achievable with awesome advice on how to maintain even a very active lifestyle.

Kyle is a great role model and I would definitely recommend him for any event, or just personal advice!
