In an interview with the founders of Fitness Femme, they explained why representation is essential in the fitness industry. “Representation is important because it provides access to an inclusive and supportive space where we can see ourselves reflected in our coaches, peers, and environment. Too often, people feel like they don’t belong in traditional fitness spaces because they don’t fit the mold of what society has deemed acceptable. By having representation, it shows that fitness is for everyone, regardless of their gender, race, body type, or ability level,” said Abramo and Davis.
It’s no secret that the fitness industry has a history of promoting a one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness. However, with more representation, people are inspired to take control of their own fitness journey and make it their own. Fitness Femme makes it a priority to provide a platform that’s both supportive and inspiring so everyone can feel seen and heard.
When asked about how Fitness Femme strives to create an inclusive space, the founders expressed that it’s all about creating a diverse community. “We aim to provide representation through our coaches, the fitness community we have built, and the types of workouts we offer. Each of our coaches has gone through their own fitness journey, and we work hard to make sure that we have a diverse group of coaches that come from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and body types. We want our community to know that they have a safe space where they can come as they are, and feel accepted and celebrated.”
Fitness Femme’s mission proves that representation in fitness is not only important but necessary. By celebrating diversity, we not only empower people to take control of their own fitness journey, but also create a more supportive and inclusive fitness community. Everyone deserves to feel represented and valued in their pursuit of health and wellness. Fitness Femme is leading the way for a more inclusive fitness industry that celebrates diversity and empowers all individuals to reach their fitness goals.
