Kendrick Farris

Kendrick Farris is a three-time Olympic weightlifter with two top-10 Olympic finishes. He earned gold and silver medals in the Pan American Championships and broke the American total-lift record in 2016. Farris set the American total-lift record and competed in the 2016 Olympics games, after transitioning to a plant-based diet. Farris’s success as a plant-based athlete drew the attention of representatives from the James Cameron produced documentary The Game Changers. Farris joined a host of vegan athletes disproving the myth that athletes need meat for high performance. Farris developed and operates BlessTheGym, a sports performance brand, to teach young athletes the importance of physical activity and nutrition. BlessTheGym hosts a number of events, giving back to the types of communities Farris came from.
