WELCOME TO DECOLONIZING FITNESS
Decolonizing Fitness is not a gym, but an incredible educational resource for coaches, trainers, studio owners, and anyone who is interested in unlearning toxic fitness culture. Decolonizing Fitness as a practice is about providing a supportive environment to individuals who have historically not felt welcomed in fitness spaces i.e. BIack people, people in larger bodies, people with disabilities, people with chronic pain, people over the age of 65 and people who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
If you are in search of an affirming movement practitioner in your area you can download the FREE list of providers below.
ALL MERCHANDISE SALES GOES TOWARDS HOUSING SUPPORT FOR TRANS AND GENDER EXPANSIVE PEOPLE
Before the global pandemic hit Black trans people already experienced disproportionately higher rates of houselessness (among many other inequities) as compared to the general population. Decolonizing Fitness has always been committed to not only shining light on the disparities that Black trans/gender expansive folks face but also finding ways to support our most vulnerable communities. Therefore, 100% of Shirt and E-Book Sales will be donated to help support Black Trans and Gender Expansive people who are currently experiencing houselessness. Please consider purchasing a an item so that I may continue to offer this much needed support to my community.
