It can be hard for many LGBTQ+ young adults to find spaces where they feel comfortable participating in fitness. The OUT Foundation is partnering with local gyms across the country to change that.
The OUTAthlete Program, powered by PUMA and Garnier, facilitates year-long gym memberships for LGBTQ+ young adults between the ages of 18-30 nationwide. The OUTAthlete Program has helped over 50 athletes in 32 cities. But it is so much more than just a free year-long membership to a local LGBTQ+ friendly gym! OUTAthletes will also receive 30% off all OUT Foundation apparel, a networking group of current and former OUTAthletes, gifts from our sponsors, monthly educational sessions, and more.
Applications for this year's class of OUTAthletes are open from September 26th to October 28th. Once recipients are chosen and notified, The OUT Foundation works with them to find a local, inclusive facility where they can begin their fitness journey.
If you are interested in partnering with us and hosting one of our OUTAthletes, please email us here.
Applications will open September 26th and will close on October 28th. Preference will be given to applicants who are near a Movement Fitness and/or a CrossFit box.
