Revolutionary Fitness is a health and fitness worker-owned cooperative education organization with its headquarters based in New York City. Since 2010, they have trail blazed the Fitness Justice Movement, advocating for radical change to the public health sector. They have a major focus on creating more leaders and professionals from the communities most effected by this crisis.
Their goal is to develop Health and Fitness professionals with a purpose. People's Trainer, are individuals who can provide education and bring affordable/accessible services to their communities and do it from a racial, socioeconomic and trauma-informed perspective. Challenging the current health and fitness industry, the public health sector and the privatized corporations profiting from poor health.
Revolutionary Fitness was founded in the Spring of 2010 with the purpose of providing health and fitness services & education to underdeveloped communities, that do not have regular access to such programs. It has grown to offer all types of fitness classes, educational clinics and workshops, alternatives to youth incarceration programs, mentoring programs, and social justice advocacy through community campaigns to address the oppressive state of health within oppressed communities.
These programs have not only provided important services to our communities but they also serve as models to disadvantaged people who wish to start taking concrete actions to deal with their realities.
Their strategy is not to try and provide everyone with the services they are lacking, but rather to begin the process of developing services from within their community and begin addressing the bigger issues causing the health and fitness crisis in our neighborhoods. They use education to provide people with the tools to take control of their own destiny and to shape the state of health and fitness within their communities.
Revolutionary Fitness aims to empower all people who aspire to live a healthier and more meaningful life regardless of economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation or creed. They are committed to promoting alternatives to what is currently available to us as a community. They do this by creating fitness ambassadors from within our communities through our educational programs, by pushing alternative fitness media that address our unique experiences as poor and working people, and by providing low cost & accessible services to our communities.
