You’ve heard about the V Shred workout + diet combo that’s categorized specifically for you down to your body type, maybe you’ve seen a certain guy’s face pop up on YouTube videos – perhaps in a banner ad below what you’re watching, or maybe he’s popped up on your Tik Tok feed. In essence, the creator of V Shred makes heavy use of marketing, which means that almost anyone indulging in any sort of fitness content has seen his face at least once.
But who is he? And is he trustworthy?
Let’s delve into Mr. V Shred Himself – Vince Sant.
V Shred’s Owner – Vincent Seth Sant
Founder, Creator, and face of V Shred – Vincent Seth Sant (shortened to Vince Sant) worked with Nick Daniel, Roger Crandall, and Kevin Pearn to create his now nearly-ubiquitous fitness program. Where his partners have taken a more backseat role, Vincent has become synonymous with the brand itself.
If you like V Shred’s videos and methodology, you like Vince Sant. If you have a problem with his ads or his information, you have a problem with Vincent.
It goes so far that people will literally refer to Vincent AS V Shred, in videos such as this one:
And unfortunately it seems a lot of people have issues with Vincent/V Shred…
More about that later, though I’ve detailed my own experience with the workout (to sum it up, I think it’s too expensive and found a much better alternative at a FRACTION of the price, so I wasn’t too happy overall)
But let’s take a step back and think about it. There are thousands of workout programs out there. Statistics say that 5 new programs are made every day (yes I made that up). They’re all going to work to varying degrees for every one. So why does Vince Sant/V Shred draw so much ire in particular?
For one, it goes back to how widespread the program is, even though people have… varying opinions on it.
You can find negative reviews of V Shred everywhere – and not just my own – there’s a complaint page where they have to fight off constant requests for refunds and negative feedback.
But at the end of the day, so many people still hear about it. The marketing budget for this thing has to be massive, and it must be profitable, because otherwise they wouldn’t keep pouring money into it despite the mixed reviews.
And how much has it made Mr. V-Shred himself, I wonder?
Vince Sant/V Shred – Net Worth, Age, and Height
Now let me be clear: I don’t know anything major about Vince Sant’s personal life. I didn’t do any super-sleuth detective work or anything 😅, just some light research to see what I could find. And some of that information was conflicting. So take it all with a grain of salt. That said, here’s what I learned about Mr. V-Shred….
His Net Worth is staggering – estimated to be around $5 million!
His Height is 6 foot, 1 inches (I’ve seen a couple places say he’s 5’11, so to be safe let’s say he’s between 5’11 and 6’1 depending on what shoes he’s wearing)
His weight is estimated to be around 180 pounds, or around 81-82 kg for my friends across the pound.
And his age? Get ready – Vince Sant is only 27 years old.
Wow. Again, I don’t know what he did BEFORE V Shred, but now hes become synonymous with it. Which means that almost everything he’s achieved is most likely through this one workout program.
That said, it’s possible he got help from his partners, or family, or loans in order to use a large marketing budget to first get his program’s name out there. Only he and his partners would know that.
That said – even if you don’t like his program, you have to respect his hustle. What he’s achieved is just flat out impressive, anyway you slice it.
By the way, another question I ran into while looking up details about Vince Sant – Who’s the girl in his photos?
Vince Sant and Ashley Rossi
This is Vince’s girlfriend.
Let’s be real – these are two very good looking people.
I know nothing about their relationship and I’m never going to pretend to know, but I do feel like some people looking into v shred in general get caught up in the mystique of wanting to emulate them.
How they look, how they act, etc… I wonder how many young men buy into V shred hoping they can become fitness icons like Vince did. I wonder how many women see his girlfriend and think they can look like her and do the woman-equivalent, starting up their own business and becoming big Instagram influencers.
I’m not going to lie… these are the sort of thoughts I had when I first started to try V Shred.
And overall, while I have my issues with the workout and diet themselves, I still think what Vince and Ashley have built is just downright impressive.
But I would still want to caution you…
There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes that we just don’t know.
- How many people knew V Shred was started with 3 other guys, not just Vince himself?
- How many people knew his (supposed) net worth
- Or how long he’s been at it?
It’s important to realize how much of the information that’s publicly available of us can be hidden or manipulated in order to project a certain image, or lifestyle…
And AGAIN, I’m not saying that’s what they’re doing. But I’m also not, not saying it – because who knows?
In this case, I think it’s important to separate the “v shred guy” from the “v shred program” and judge the workout/diet for its own merits, not the lifestyle that appears to be surrounding it.
So in short, Vincent is a young guy who made a career off of his looks, and promising to teach other people how to achieve incredible fitness transformations of their own through personalized workout and diet plans. He makes heavy use of ads to keep his program towards the front of people’s minds, and even among fitness gurus he has an enviable physique and a girlfriend with much of the same.
All in all, it’s not hard to understand why he’s so popular. He’s the perfect encapsulation of the fitness culture right now. In your face, selling a dream, and hustling.
