Decolonizing Fitness, LLC is a social justice platform that provides affirming fitness services, community education and apparel in support of body diversity. Ilya the owner is a black trans person who resides in Durham, NC
Decolonizing Fitness as a collective was birthed from the need for folks (i.e. fat, trans, queer, people with disabilities, people over 65) who have historically not felt welcomed in fitness spaces to have better access to inclusive services.
We firmly believe fitness can be used as a healing modality to help people regain a more supportive connection to their bodies.
JOIN ME AT THE BODY TRUST SUMMIT
March 11th - 17th
I’m speaking at the #BodyTrust Summit 2020 & I’d love for you to join us!
This is a FREE online conference featuring over 20 talks with diverse speakers.
We want YOU to think of this form of care not as a form of self-care but a form of divestment. Divestment from the patriarchy, diet culture, capitalism, healthism, perfectionism, white supremacy and more.
