SUPPORTING PRISM MOVES
Prism Moves originally opened as an LLC called Prism Fit. The business was created to fill service gaps in the fitness industry.
The fitness industry centers white, thin, cis, heteronormative individuals and rarely makes room for those that do not fit this description. Women, BIPOC individuals, LGBTQ+ individuals, larger bodied humans and those that want to move their bodies for joy instead of weight loss rarely have access to fitness spaces that accomodate them and make them feel welcome, and Prism Fit was their space.
As membership at Prism Fit grew, it became apparent the communities that Prism Fit attracted were the same communities that experienced wage gaps, meaning the generally accepted gym fees of $165 a month and up were not accessible.
Prism Fit began offering sliding scale memberships and a once a week free BIPOC class, but the need for these memberships started to exceed the operational capacity of the business.
Dissolving the Prism Fit LLC and creating the nonprofit Prism Moves allows for the organization to expand its free and sliding scale memberships, as well as create additional programs such as free youth and family classes, and continuing education for Prism Moves coaches and individuals interested in becoming fitness instructors.
Prism Moves believes that fitness is for everyone and fosters inclusivity by constantly educating and committing to reducing racism, sexism, body shaming and toxic fitness industry norms.
