Janelle Casanave bikini model competitor
My name is Janelle Casanave, I'm 29 years old and I am from San Jose, CA. My road to becoming a vegan began as a child, where I constantly pushed the meat aside on my plate and asked for more veggies! By high school, I was vegetarian and extremely into fitness and total body wellness. I played around with different diets (raw vegan, 80/10/10, pescatarian, etc.), even reintroduced chicken and fish at some points, in an attempt to find the ultimate source to good heath. It wasn't until 2009, when I went to Canada for a 10 day Juice Fast under the guidance of one of the most amazing raw food coaches, Joanne Gero, that I found my destination.
I became a vegan after my journey and have not looked back since. Currently, I am training for MTV's The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, a nationally televised competitive based show that I have participated in twice and won. To prepare, I am doing a combination of cross training with an amazing trainer, Jah Bennett, power yoga, and running. In addition, I intend to begin training for a bikini competition later within the year. Ultimately, I want to continue to further myself in the fitness industry and inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle to the fullest!
