It can be hard for many LGBTQ+ young adults to find a place where they feel comfortable participating in fitness, and The OUT Foundation is partnering with local gyms across the country to change that.
As part of the OUTAthlete Program, The OUT Foundation facilitates year-long gym memberships for LGBTQ+ young adults in the United States between the ages of 18-30. But it is so much more than just a membership!
Now supporting its fourth class of athletes, the OUTAthlete Program, Powered by PUMA & Garnier, has helped over 40 athletes in 32 cities. OUTAthletes receive a year-long membership to a local LGBTQ+ friendly gym, three months of online mental health counseling through BetterHelp, nutrition coaching by M2 Performance, FUSE training shoes and apparel from PUMA, a 12-month WHOOP membership, healthy meals, 30% off all OUTAthletics apparel, a networking group of current and former OUTAthletes, gifts from our sponsors, monthly educational sessions, and more.
The OUTAthlete Program is funded by our partners and, in part, by OUTAthletics workouts hosted by fitness facilities worldwide to create a more inclusive environment and show support for the LGBTQ+ community. Our partner, Garnier has enabled us to expand our program to accept more OUTAthletes for the Class of 2022.
The applications are open until March 23rd, recipients are chosen and notified on April 11th, and The OUT Foundation works with them to find a local, inclusive facility where they can begin their fitness journey in May.
If you are interested in partnering with us and hosting one of our OUTAthletes, please email us here.
Applications will be closed on March 23rd.
Preference will be given to applicants who live in the greater, Louisiana, South Florida, Chicago, and San Francisco Bay areas.
