Building Communities Through Fitness
At Fit Friends, we believe that the lifestyle and discipline of fitness is a cause worth sharing. That is why we have made it our mission to put fitness centers within the reach of the underprivileged.
We partner with Fitness Communities around the world to establish and sustain Fitness Centers for communities that would otherwise not have this opportunity.
As a nonprofit, we identify underprivileged communities in which we believe a Fit Friends Center can provide a truly revolutionary impact. Then we partner with local organizations to establish the fitness facility.
Our Fit Friends Facilities and partners help us by donating gym equipment towards the establishment of a new Fit Friends Center.
Local gyms and wellness centers that choose to partners with us become Fit Friends Facilities and offer their members the opportunity to round up their membership to give to the Fit Friends Initiative.
The "round-up" amount is then donated to sustain Fit Friends Centers around the world.
Once we establish complete sustainability of the Fit Friends Center, we seek to meet a need in the local community beyond the fitness center.
By partnering the Fit Friends Community with the underprivileged community, we meet the need before planting the next Fit Friends Center.

It is through this membership model that Fit Friends Centers are sustained and fitness is shared.
Working to build their local community and gain awareness, Fit Friends Facilities and Partners work together to host Fit Friends Events and Competitions. Of which, all proceeds go to the Fit Friends Initiative.
Partnering with locally impactful organizations and nonprofits around the world, the Fit Friends Initiative establishes Fit Friends Centers in underprivileged communities, bringing hope through exercise, fitness, and social & economic impact.
