March 11, 2020

We met up with them at their very own vegan gym in Playa del Carmen and it was such a pleasure getting to hear their vegan story. The Om Twiins are vegan fitness trainers and activists. They bring such bright energy to the movement and have built a super impressive online community. We were so inspired by them that after the interview we signed up for one of their fitness programs and have been following their guidance ever since.
