Plant Built was founded in the fall of 2012 by a group of seasoned and novice physique competitors with the shared goal of promoting a plant based diet in a sport where eating animal products is widely accepted as the only way to achieve success and abstaining is seen as absurd if not blasphemous. Vegan athletes in the full spectrum of fitness and bodybuilding divisions were asked to join a group that would compete en masse at one show in the summer of 2013. The group chose the Austin Texas “Naturally Fit Super Show” as their debut.
In 2013 we represented only 10% of the competition and took home over 40% of the trophies! This year, we are 40+ athletes strong and look to once again dominate at our annual competition. We hope to see you there!
We are a non profit non salary paid organization.

Our lifestyle requires physical effort beyond our normal capacity, furthermore is the use of proper nutrition, rest, and mental well being. None of these require the destruction of animals .
