Here at Therabody, we believe that wellness should be accessible to everyone. In celebration of Pride, we recently sat down with our LGBTQ+ community to find out what wellness means to them. Now, we’re proud to continue the conversation through our partnership with The OUT Foundation. In providing its community of fitness enthusiasts with $100,000 worth of Therabody products and services, we stand with their mission to remove barriers that block the LGBTQ+ community’s access to fitness, health, and wellness to ensure their success.
Who is The OUT Foundation?
It can be hard for many LGBTQ+ young adults to feel comfortable participating in fitness, and The OUT Foundation is partnering with local gyms across the country to change that. They are dedicated to nurturing, empowering, and celebrating bodies and minds to guarantee that the community thrives.
The OUT Foundation offers an inclusive gym finder for anyone looking to join a supportive fitness community, anyone moving to a new city and looking for a gym where they’ll be accepted for who they are, or for anyone traveling and looking to get a workout in somewhere they’ll be welcomed.
Check out their inclusive gym finder.
OUTAthletics is the world’s largest initiative for bringing together LGBTQ+ athletes and allies to sweat for a cause in a safe, inclusive environment. They strive to create a community from all walks of life and inspire you to feel good about yourself, your workouts, and your life.
OUTAthletics Fundraisers are hosted by fitness facilities worldwide. LGBTQ+ athletes and allies join forces and participate in fun workouts, raise awareness for community issues in sport and fitness, and raise funds for The OUT Foundation.
As part of the OUTAthlete Program, The OUT Foundation offers year-long gym memberships for LGBTQ+ young adults in the United States between the ages of 18-30. This program offers a range of benefits including:

The OUTHealth program provides health services to all members of the LGBTQ+ community through various initiatives. Their current efforts are primarily for transgender/gender diverse individuals. OUTHealth offers the ability for those marginalized in the community to be comfortable and celebrate their bodies.
