Welcome to FemFitnessBlog, a lifestyle blog about feminism, body politics, and the women’s fitness community. Like many journeys of health do, mine included weight-loss, a topic that has taken on a monstrous and unfortunate life of its own in the fitness community. I started blogging because I want to produce media that actually helps and celebrates women who are achieving their personal health goals and doesn’t profit off of women’s insecurity about their bodies.
I am a health-conscious, woman of color working in the environmental field. I am a proud City Year alumna, where I completed a year of Americorps service in the poorest congressional district in the US. I live with my boyfriend, also a staunch feminist, avid cyclist, and CY alum, and a bunch of other roommates. I love surfing, juicing, political theory, neo-soul and gospel music, and carpentry.
I look forward to fortifying a community of ambitious, healthy, and proudly feminist women.
