Hey there!

I'm really excited to celebrate two milestones at once: the 10-year anniversary of my business, and the publication of my fourth book, The Vegan Athlete. My team and I have created an awesome online event we think you'll love. We hope you'll join us!

Schedule of events

Join the event of your choice, or join 'em all! Everything is free, and everyone is welcome.


Friday, March 19

Check-in 'n' chat: 5:30pm PDT
Workout: 5:45 - 6:15pm PDT

Join Coach K and her cats for a 30-minute, at-home workout to kick off the anniversary weekend (and ensure your muscles are included in the celebration).

The workout will include options for all experience levels, and will not require any equipment.

Invite your lockdown workout partner-in-crime, someone who might be brand new to movement, or anyone who wants to learn more about Coach K’s training and see it in action.

Workout will be streamed live on Facebook and Instagram.

Make sure you join live to interact with Coach K and your fellow participants, and to be eligible to win some of our awesome prizes -- goodies from Herbaland, and copies of Coach K's new book!

(But don't worry, the replay will be available if you can't make it live.)


Saturday, March 20

12pm-1:15pm PDT

Can vegans even lift?
How do vegans get protein?
Don’t I need meat to build muscle?

Plant-fuelled athletes will never measure up to those who eat animal protein. 

This dialogue is not new. There has been significant growth in the sector of plant-based and vegan athletes who are thriving on plant nutrition and excelling in endurance and strength training endeavours.

Still, often within the fitness and athleticism industry itself, the capability or legitimacy of plant-fuelled athletics is questioned, criticized, and undermined. For once and for all, those sentiments will be addressed, explained, and dismissed!

The Panel brings together five industry professionals, ranging in backgrounds, experience, and accreditation, to bring truth to the discussion, offer valuable insight, and above all: break down some BS myths. 


Sunday, March 21

12:00pm - 1:00pm PDT

Ask, and you shall receive! A clients-only event that is part seminar, part Q&A, and part behind-the-scenes, join Coach K and Coach Z for a Sunday social.

Programming will include an exclusive kitchen tour and meal prep run-down, and a discussion around the top myths about vegan nutrition (and why they're wrong).

Bringing together our entire client community for the first time (ever!), learn more about different vegan/veg journeys, where people started, and tips that have been useful for them along the way.

Also: the opportunity to ask your Coaches anything you want.

Apply for one of our available clients spots before Sunday, March 21st, and receive a $200 coaching upgrade -- on us!
