My Fellow Vegan Hero
Are You Ready To Conquer Your Self-Esteem and Become The Bold Vegan Leader You Deserve To Be?
Finally, A Vegan Leader Reveals His 5 Step System On How He Transformed Himself From Struggling With Self-Esteem To Becoming A Fit Vegan Inspiration In Less Than 3 Years. (#letsdoit)
Dear Vegan Sibling,
You and I have never met but there’s a couple of things we do have in common...
- We LOVE personal growth, value ALL life, and want to be a symbol of hope for others.
- Our constant struggle with self esteem and our DESIRE to become a HERO for our family, society and above all for this world.
I hear you.
And I’m with you...so just bear with me a sec (and I’ll share with ya) exactly how I made the shift from being unfit, incongruent and frustrated vegan (with darn-right LOW levels of confidence or self-belief) to...
Becoming a powerful vegan leader who’s helped 100’s of clients become fit, confident, and BELIEVE in themselves again.
Oh and I’ll show you exactly how to:
So that you can have day-long energy, feel strong ,lean, confident and powerful in your mind and body,
And this NEW added energy could help your breakthrough limiting financial ceilings that have been holding you back depending on HOW confident you really become...
So imagine this...
- Imagine how would you feel when you look in the mirror and SMILE joyfully
- And finally, you can be proud of your body and yourself.
- Imagine having an Unshakable CONFIDENCE to take your current/new love relationship to NEW level.
- Plus how would it make a difference in your life ,business, and relationship when you are feeling IN ALIGNMENT throughout your entire day
But there’s one thing that’s stopping you from a completely different life.
And I’ll tell you in a minute why you keep falling off track again and again (and why it continues to erode your self esteem).
If you fix this ONE thing, I can guarantee you’ll never have to feel that way again… (Hint: It’s not about nutrition and workout plan)
It’s the secret behind every successful person in ANY industry but it’s so OBVIOUS 95% of people ignore it and get caught up in shiny object syndrome (but you won’t after reading this, tbh).
But before we get carried away, amigo, let’s backtrack a hot minute.
Who Am I To Make Such Outrageous Vegan Claims?
My name's Gabriel Zhanay. There’s a chance we’ve met. Or not.
Regardless, here's a bunch of certs and awards so you can see that I’m a real human being (keep scrolling).
So yes, I’m a coach. I’m also a FIRM believer in the power of your MIND… and the vast potential that lies within your grasp.
And yes, I’ve had the opportunity to help over 100+ people worldwide achieve their goals of building muscle, losing fat and more importantly...
REGAIN their SELF-BELIEF in WHO they are and what they’re becoming each day.
I mean c’mon, it’s basically my responsibility to help you “laser focus” your time and effort on what really works on packing powerful muscle...eliminating stubborn fat… and crafting an INVINCIBLE mind...while steering you away from what really fails to work.
That way you don’t waste hours of valuable time and energy in the gym for little-or even worse no results. #novgains
And yes, I do know what I’ve been talking about as an athlete for nearly 20+ years and weight lifter for 10+ years...oh and vegan athlete for the past 3+ years.
So I've got an idea of what I'm sharing with you.
And if there’s one thing I’ve realized over the years, it’s that practical “hands-on” experience is WHAT makes the difference for vegans like you and me to accelerate lean muscle and speed up fat loss...
While creating a powerful mind and INVINCIBLE self-belief in yourself along the way.
So quick story...
Even though I grew up as an athlete and was involved in sports since 5, I never truly felt confident in my body.
Even though I identified as an ‘athlete’ and even trained like one for over 2 decades, there was a disconnect between…
...what my body looked like and what I imagined it could look like.
It took me over 10 years to understand this little-known process which 99% of people in the fitness industry never end up understanding… but before I do, let me backtrack to 5 years ago.
I’ve been strength training and working out consistently for over 10 years and coaching for nearly 5 years.
Yet, 5 years ago was a pivotal moment - a moment when personal growth and fitness really became the focus of my life…
I was tired of the way I felt, of not feeling confident, incongruent, and inconsistent with my workouts, nutrition, and mind.
I had little to no self-esteem after years of conditioning and limiting beliefs that had surrounded my mind since I was a child and things seemed to be getting harder and harder each year.
The tipping point was when my current relationship ended after a heart-breaking moment and I felt lost and confused with no purpose in life.
Yet, the transformation that I experienced here was just the first step - fast forward to...
3 years ago, when I became vegan
I had dived deeper into personal development, spiritual growth, and taken my fitness to a whole new level.
Yet, my fitness, mind, and physique were still miles away from what I had in mind.
Although I was consistent with my workouts - I never felt like my body captured the inspiring image in my mind’s eye, the image of self-actualization and inspiration, a positive example to help empower others.
Becoming vegan changed a LOT for me.
I connected even more deeply with my spiritual practice as a Buddhist.
I began to see the interconnection between all beings, food, and our planet...and I decided it was time for a serious and permanent transformation in my physique, mind, and health.
I woke up one morning while living in Bristol, United Kingdom and I remember strolling past our bedroom mirror…
- Looking at my belly in the mirror and realizing that it looked 3 months pregnant
- I felt like my chest was more jiggly rather than strong
- I was embarrassed when my family made fun of my man-boobs
- I was struggling with feeling incongruent as a vegan athlete
- I had tried working out 4x weekly, tracking my workouts, tracking my food, adding more vegan protein, and sleeping more.
- I felt annoyed because I was doing my workouts, eating vegan protein, yet I felt like I was moving further and further away from my ideal vegan physique.
- I also had put on 30 pounds of fat which I told myself was lean muscle (even though my stomach had gotten bigger over the past 2 years).
As a vegan, I felt overwhelmed by all of my knowledge and frustrated at my lack of results in my vegan physique.
I knew I needed support and accountability but I felt resistant because I felt like I knew it all.
Then one day I told myself…
I HAD ENOUGH…
Had enough of figuring out myself and getting frustrated and feeling incongruent.
And I stopped and reached out to a high-level mentor who could support me in my fitness journey.
What I’ve realized with training with my mentor is that I was making blundering mistakes….
And when I look back I laugh at myself and wonder why the heck I was making these mistakes
And Maybe you are making these mistakes too...
Look I was:
- Trying to do everything in my vegan fitness by myself
- Trying to add more workouts, reduce my favorite vegan foods, yet feeling burned out and overwhelmed
- Listening to wayyyyy too many different fitness experts without choosing one option that works for my life
- Making myself feel bad for not reaching my vegan fitness goals and feeling incongruent in my mind and body
- Sacrificing my business growth and physique goals by trying to do so much at once
So why am I telling you all this…
Because I WANT you to WIN and avoid my mistakes... (yes, I’m like your big brother so stop this).
Which is why I felt INSPIRED to create a 5 step system to completely transform you physically, mentally, and spiritually... and REVEAL the leader within you (and we’ll chat about that in a sec).
But there’s one other thing I wanted to share with you… which is what I realized was the ROOT of my problems and WHY I never created the PERMANENT transformation I knew that I deserved.
I was reading a book called ATOMIC HABITS by James Clear.
And one of the concepts that I read there, dramatically shifted my perspective 180 degrees on HOW I look at fitness FOREVAAAAAAA.
James Clear calls it:
According to Clear:
'The key to building lasting habits is by focusing on creating a new identity first. As Clear mentions in his second chapter of his book 'Atomic Habits':
'Your current behaviors are simply a reflection of your current identity.'
What you do now is a mirror image of the type of person you believe that you are (whether you're aware of this or NOT).
If you're interested in PERMANENT transformation, then changing what you BELIEVE about yourself is the FIRST STEP.
SO HOW DO YOU THIS?
I'm glad ya asked... here's your vegan recipe to life-long success in ANYTHING YOU DO.
Build identity-based habits.
Clear gives us another brilliant example here:
"We might start by saying “I want to lose weight” or “I want to get stronger.”
If you're lucky, someone might say, “That's great, but you should be more specific.”
So then you say, “I want to lose 20 pounds” or “I want to squat 300 pounds.”
'These goals are centered around outcomes, not identity.'
As Clear mentions above (and backs up with countless studies), the real SECRET to life-long transformation as a vegan leader who cares about our planet, animals, and health is simple: FOCUS on who you want to BECOME.¹
So here's 3 levels of change which happens inside of us below:
According to this model, there's 3 MAIN ways you can go about creating transformation in your life:
The three layers of behavior change are:
- Change in your outcomes
- Change in your processes
- Or a change in your identity
Here is Clear's 3 Step HABIT Change Process
This level is concerned with changing your results: losing weight, crafting lean muscle mass, attracting romantic partners, becoming role models for your family and others.
Most of the goals you set are associated with this level of change.
This level is concerned with changing your habits and systems: implementing a new routine at the gym, new nutrition plan, a new mindset shift, or new habits like GMV which we teach in our 1-1 VIP coaching programs.
Most of the habits you build are associated with this level.
And I LOVE this level because this is WHERE CHANGE TRULY HAPPENS. Clear mentions here:
'This level is concerned with changing your beliefs: your worldview, your self-image, your judgments about yourself and others. He also mentions that 'Most of the beliefs, assumptions, and biases you hold are associated with this level.'
And our VFR Methodology goes RIGHT to the heart of this layer (aren’t we the best?) So wrapping up Clear's example:
The true secret isn't becoming attached to your goals (outcomes) but rather on creating an UNSHAKEABLE and INVINCIBLE system of HABITS which allows you to fall back to your level of habits. Which means:
...the real problem lies in THE DIRECTION OF YOUR CHANGES.
Most people get CAUGHT in the pitfall of changing their habits based off of what they want to ACHIEVE.
Which leads to outcome-based habits.
The alternative is to build identity-based habits. With this approach (which is our specialty btw), you start by focusing on WHO you wish (and deserve) to become.
The Vegan Recipe Behind Permanent Hero Transformation
And it's much easier than you probably thought it was tbh...
According to Clear, there's two steps:
1. Decide the type of person you want to be.
2. Prove it to yourself with small wins.
For the first step, you just need to ask yourself.
“Who is the type of person that could get the outcome I want?”
Want to feel confident, fit, and lean as a vegan leader each day?
Identity: Become the type of person who is confident, fit, and lean as a vegan leader every day
Daily evidence is the key here... the more you give PROOF to yourself that you are becoming the person you envision, the easier it becomes to see AMAZING results in your mind and body. And yes, it's really that simple.
And it's even more important when you begin.
So if you're SERIOUS about change then:
DECIDE WHO YOU WANT TO BECOME. THEN PROVE THIS YOURSELF WITH SMALL WINS EACH DAY
Because your CHARACTER is a key indicator of WHO you are each day - so instead of getting caught in the labyrinth of result-based habits -----> DECIDE what kind of character you are choosing to become TODAY.
Planting one flower here and there does not make a garden—just as exercising once and a while does not build an identity.
Planting flowers every day will certainly make a lovely garden.
And for the second step, our VFR Lv 1 Accelerator Program will help you step-by-step to build and craft a new identity and a newer version of you.
Vegan Fitness Redefined Accelerator Lv1 Program

We’re not just a fitness company, we're a leadership and personal development company that focuses on developing you to the highest level possible in your mind, body, spirit in order to UNLOCK the leader and HERO within you.
- Of course, you’ve probably read a few books on vegan diet and fitness in general. Or listened to some mindset strategies like visualization techniques, gratitude, or even a bit of meditation...
- Maybe you’ve watched some videos on YouTube or listened to a few podcasts.
- Maybe you’ve even bought fitness programs meant to help you build confidence and the body of your dream.
- Maybe over the last few years you’ve tried different sorts of things like intermittent fasting or caloric deficits.
And yet - here you are - still not confident and happy with yourself
Still you’re not in ALIGNMENT with what you are doing.
And still you're not proud of your body when you look at yourself in the mirror.
Why it didn’t work
It didn’t work because you were probably missing one or all of the 5 systems which I’ve developed over the last 5 years.
This program is all about specialized guidance, 1-1 coaching, and mentorship...
...(and I do MEAN real coaching - this word is thrown around too often these days, but this is the real deal, my friend, we slice the extra fluff right off...)

Imagine Looking at Yourself Proudly in The Mirror and Knowing that You’ve Become a Leader and Hero Who Empowers Others Daily
- How about having more passion in your current relationship, making it even more special and romantic?
- Or what about increasing your self-esteem and confidence to such HIGH levels you can’t help but attract your ideal soulmate?
- How about waking up everyday and being in ALIGNMENT with your thoughts, words, and actions?
- Or how about knowing that everyday with every action, you inspire others to grow too?
People in awe of you, wishing to know the secrets of “how you did it.” Or like really, ‘how did this person become so darn amazing??’
But a word of caution...
PLEASE DON’T APPLY IF…
- You’re not 100% committed to your vegan evolution
- You’re not coachable (or don’t like learning)
- You’re not financially stable
- You’re not ready to invest your mind, body, and heart.
- You’re not fun, aren’t resourceful, and don’t like growth
But if you’re ready to take action (and consider yourself to be a cool, fun vegan) then...
You’ll have a decision to make...
Which path will you choose?
Do It Alone
Continue to go at things by yourself. Experience frustration. Maybe see a bit of results in your mind and body.
Probably end up slipping backwards. Repeat cycle for the next 5, 10, 20+ years...
‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to see a different result’ ~thanks Al!
You really don’t know what you don’t know. Until you know.

Your Questions: Answered
If you didn’t need a coach, you wouldn’t be on this page. Let’s be honest with each other. If you were able to figure out this whole leadership and fitness puzzle out by YOURSELF, you would have it handled already, right?
So let’s just be real with each other: even the BEST athletes, CEO’s, and even monks have mentors and guides who help them unlock higher and higher levels of growth EVERY year. It's priceless.
The choice is always within you… does it make sense to go another 5, 10, 20 + years trying to figure this out by myself? Or is it just my EGO which is holding me back from becoming the best version of myself and asking for help.
Asking for HELP makes you a HERO (think of every Jedi, action hero, or spiritual hero on this planet - they always had a mentor or coach who helped them grow too).
This is our version of a ‘free consultation’... except 100x better. Why?
Because after this call (whether we work together or not), you’ll be SO CLEAR on your goals, problems, and solution specifically for YOUR life that you’ll have a SIMPLE and EFFECTIVE strategy you could take and apply immediately to your life today.
True. But you haven’t met a coaching and leadership company that incorporates personal growth, fitness, nutrition, and leadership components into one unified system while specializing each component to YOUR life (while making it so much FUN you can’t help but WIN every week - yes, we’re that cool).
It really comes down to your NEEDS and GOALS.
However, money is something we ALWAYS work out for each person (and if you’re committed, money is NEVER an issue).
The scale will not, and should not be the only method to track weight and progress.
Weight: Record your starting weight in your profile at the start of your program.
Movement Screen: These are special video assessments where we can personally see your form as you perform specific exercises.
Inches: Record your inch measurements under your profile (instructions are provided inside of your assessment form).
Visual tracking: Take pictures front/side/back (instructions are provided inside of your assessment form).
Commitment/Accountability: Check-in at the beginning of the session. Aim to complete at least 3-4 workouts a week.
Strength: Record the weight used for every workout. Each week the goal is to increase the weight you use every set by 2-5 pounds (depending on your training level)
