I am a black non binary trans masculine person (he/they), Physical Therapist Assistant and ACE Certified Medical Exercise Specialist with over 13 years of rehabilitative and functional training experience. I am social justice advocate, and educator whose work centers racial, gender and healing justice. I am also a freelance writer and have contributed to Every Day Feminism, Self Magazine , Mashable and AthleteAlly.
I decided to merge my love for restorative based movement practices and community advocacy to create Decolonizing Fitness, LLC which is owned and operated solely by trans and queer people of color. Decolonizing Fitness is a social justice platform that provides affirming fitness services, community education and apparel in support of body diversity.
Although I am using the word “decolonizing” in the metaphorical since to break free from normative and restrictive standards. I want to honor my use of this word "decolonizing" in this context while also acknowledging that I believe in the unconditional sovereignty of all Indigenous and African people on this continent.
