Tori DeSimone, the founder of stRIDE

Tori first got into the fitness industry when she attended SoulCycle class and enjoyed it. After that, she started to attend these classes regularly and fell in love. She loved how exercise made her feel and how it affected her whole body. She started to eat healthier and made friends with the same hobby. She always had a dream of founding her own workout studio and started to do her research. She wanted to open a studio under the existing brand of SoulCycle since she loved it there. But eventually, she decided to choose her own path and founded her own fitness studio, stRIDE.

One of her ex-coworkers teamed up with her and helped her to get stRIDE started. Tori’s studio offers a lot of different programs, such as spinning class, yoga or boxing. Because of her young age, Tori sometimes struggles to be taken seriously by other people. She stated that she hates double standards when it comes to men and women in business. She definitely needs to try harder to be respected as a young woman owning a company.

Is Tori DeSimone vegan?

When Tori’s channel switched to fitness, she started posting many videos on healthy diets and food in general. She claimed to be vegan and uploaded vegan meal plans when still in college. She targeted a younger audience and tried to show that being vegan is easy. In 2017 she posted a video called Why I’m NOT Vegan or Plant-Based Anymore / What I Eat In A Day. This video shocked a lot of her followers since Tori claimed to be vegan for several years. Her explanation was that she doesn’t feel full when eating meatless foods. She said that she supports everyone in their choices but that she changed. One of her videos after that involved prepping food with meat.

Tori’s attitude against veganism offended a lot of people, especially influencers who specialize in vegan and vegetarian diets. Some of them looked into Tori’s older videos and openly spoke their mind. They found out that Tori never really understood the point of a vegan lifestyle since she was using not-cruelty-free makeup and products. They also noticed that she used the vegan hashtag in a lot of her posts because it made her posts viral. A lot of people came to realize that Tori was using the vegan title just for clickbait and views instead of actually meaning it.
