Magdalena Kordiuk: Vegan Strength and Fitness – Busting Myths in the Fitness Industry and Empowerment Through Food Choices
Saturday September 7, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm | Miss Lou's Room | Speakers
Magdalena will be debunking myths as they pertain to the fitness industry, an industry rife with misinformation about nutrition, protein and fad diets as products and supplements (particularly animal proteins) are pushed onto consumers. As an example herself, she’ll share how it’s not only possible to build muscle and maintain a high level of fitness and athleticism while living a vegan lifestyle, but also how a whole-food plant-based diet is superior in reducing inflammation, reducing nutritional stress on the body, and increasing immune functions. As a woman in an industry with a long history of gender stereotyping, and an underrepresentation of women, Magz will show how fitness is an important vehicle for empowerment.
