You might be wondering an inclusion workshop is all about….
Do you think that everyone should feel safe and welcome at the gym? Have you ever seen or heard something happen at the squat rack next to you that wasn’t quite right (and we don’t mean their form) but didn’t know what to do?
This workshop is for anyone that wants to learn what they can do to help create safer space for LGBTQ folks – or anyone who feels typically excluded in the fitness world – in their gym… we all play an important role in this!
In a nutshell – we want to inspire folks to think about some the barriers that individuals from the LGBTQ community face when going to the gym and brainstorm together to come up with ways that they can contribute to making these spaces safer, more inclusive and welcoming.
All you need to bring is your body, a friend, some water, and an open mind!
