The OUT Foundation and OUTWOD have launched daily classes for and by the LGBTQ+ community. Each week, we will highlight 2-3 LGBTQ+ instructors from across the United States that will lead classes. These are all donation-based. 

It is important to us that we support our community in need. With studio and gym closures nationwide, many instructors are left without pay and without a way to survive - so a portion of fundraising from each class will be paid to the instructor for their time and their talent.

Each class will be presented via Zoom and you will receive an access code via email 15 minutes prior to class. Each day the password will change, so please keep an eye on your inbox daily if you register for multiple classes each week.

We will release the schedule for each week on Sundays via Instagram, Facebook and here on the website.

#WFH series has concluded. 




Yep! We're still working (from home)! Here is what we are currently working on and will continue to work on for the LGBTQ+ community.


We are continuing to provide support to the Class of 2020 including virtual nutritional counseling and coaching for our LGBTQ+ athletes across the United States, daily social check-ins via private messaging group, monthly educational webinars. We are also preparing for the next application cycle for the Class of 2021, which opens in the fall.


We will be launching "OUTWOD at Home", a virtual way to still connect and #Sweatforacause. We are continuing to support our inclusive affiliates by sharing their online resources. And our inclusion resources are still being developed, including the expansion of local gym finder and downloadable discrimination policy templates for gym owners. Planning is still occurring for OUTWODs later in the year when we've made it thru this together.


We've recently formed a Transgender Health Advisory Board to oversee program operations. We are continuing our fitness instruction and wellness navigation for transgender/gender diverse patients of NYU Langone Health. If you’re looking for some reliable resources in your area, regarding health, please visit our friends at the It Gets Better Project!
