We have pride in the diversity we represent within the fitness industry and openly invite anyone to join our welcoming community by hosting or attending An OUTAthletics event.


OUTAthletics is the world’s largest initiative for bringing together LGBTQ+ athletes and allies to sweat for a cause in a safe, inclusive fitness environment. We strive to create an inclusive community for people of all walks of life and inspire you to feel good about yourself, your workouts, and your life.


As a gym owner, manager, or staff member, you can set up a team as the Team Leader. Individual athletes can also create community teams. Once your team is created, send your fundraising page link to your members to join your team for free!


1. Click the link to setup a team name. Your team name should be “Gym Name, Location, Date of OUTAthletics Event”.

2. In the description of the team page, be sure to include the details above, along with a phone number, email, and the name of the team leader for participants wanting to get connected with you the day of.

3. Download the hosting toolkit. 

We hope this helps you have a successful event. Leading up to your event, The OUT Foundation will share the event via social media and via email in our monthly newsletter.
