the fitness rebellion
An uprising of people redefining fitness on our own terms. Join the movement, and become a Fitness Rebel.
are you a fitness rebel?
This is about much more than tight abs and treadmills. It’s about being courageous and celebrating the tiny wins and victories. The Fitness Rebellion turns sweat stains into badges of honor. It believes every muscle has a story to tell. It gives a voice to the sweat haters, excuse makers and anyone who has ever thought of a treadmill as more of a “dreadmill.”
We get it, sometimes Working Out Sucks™, but we do it anyway.

the fitness rebellion manifesto
I reject the notion that beauty, desirability and worthiness are one size fits all. I think happy people are the healthiest people. It’s not enough to just look good on the outside. I want to feel good on the inside, too.
I will give my one, precious body the respect it deserves. We’ve been together a long time, and we’ve got miles to go. When my body is strong, I am strong. When my body feels good, I feel good. Wherever I go, my body goes, too. When I take care of my body, it takes care of me.
I celebrate the little victories. From the first pair of running shoes I lace up, to the morning I didn’t feel like waking up at 5 a.m. to go to the gym, but did it anyway. These are my personal triumphs, and I think each one deserves a parade.
I believe sweat stains are a badge of honor, and each of my muscles has a story to tell. I will stop seeing the gym as time wasted working out and start seeing it as time invested in working on me.
I will turn my inertia into my momentum.
I will do something with my mind, my body and my life.
I want to improve the world, and I believe that begins by improving me—because when I feel my best, I can be my best. And when I am my best, anything is possible.
