We are a growing network of LGBTQIA+ & Ally personal trainers dedicated to illuminating your wellness. This is how:
We specialize in serving all bodies, genders, abilities, races, ages, and incomes within Queer and Ally communities. With virtual and in-person services, free training funds, our soon-to-launch Queer Youth Mentorship program, and a growing network of highly skilled and passionate coaches, we aim to become the most emotionally, financially, and geographically accessible personal training organization. As a community member, you will not only learn and grow mentally and physically, but you will be integral in changing the face of toxic wellness trends. We will help you establish, deepen, and build sustainable, lifelong movement in a safe, supportive, and trauma-informed environment.
Illuminate. At Full Sun Fitness, you are encouraged to show up as you are, not how society thinks you should act, look, or feel. Here, you choose your direction, your goals, and your focus(es) and we simply provide tools to illuminate your lifelong, sustainable wellness. What do you choose to illuminate? Some of our favorites: safety, compassion, courage, community, connection, growth, authenticity, joy, the hard parts, the soft parts, love.
Educate. Teaching and learning; learning and unlearning. Learning together as a community through storytelling, reading, & sharing. We believe in excellence in evidence-based personal training, injury prevention, recovery, anatomy, and physiology. Knowledge is power and your power is important. For us, power is harnessing our vitality toolboxes, joy around movement, and active separation from destructive fitness spaces. For us, power is pride in showing up as we are at all times and remaining firm and confident in who we are.
Mobilize. Queer Youth are our future. We are focused on economic mobility, healthcare access, mentorship, & job placement. As healthcare leaders, it is our job to make training more accessible to all. To start, we have a revolving ‘free training fund’ for members to use as needed. Our Queer Youth Mentorship program will cover certified personal training education, national accreditation, CPR, mentorship, and job coaching and placement for Queer Youth. Our first cohort will launch January 2022.
