We Stand Together

We have paused over the last week to deeply consider how to best engage on issues of systemic racism in our country. 

Acts of racism and injustice have no place in our society and community. 

The coronavirus revealed the stark inequality and the fragility of the safety net for African-Americans. The latest overall COVID-19 mortality rate for Black Americans is 2.4x as high as the rate for Whites and 2.2x as high as the rate for Asians and Latinos.(more statistics here)

Often, Black Americans suffer from pre-existing conditions, making them susceptible to serious reactions to the virus. This co-morbidity has its roots in the inaccessibility of nutritious food and quality health care. Coupled with the fact that many Black Americans are the most exposed to the viral pandemic because they are {and always have been} among America’s essential workers. 

As trainers, students, and business owners, we are called to listen and learn from others. 

We believe our work can be most impactful within the wellness community. As Joe Pilates says,"To achieve the highest accomplishments, in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds.” When you are physically fit & healthy, you have the wherewithal to achieve, capability to be productive, and resilience to keep going.  

Please join us in donating and supporting the Black Women's Health Imperative.The Black Women’s Health Imperative has been a powerful force in a leading effort to address the most pressing health issues that affect Black women and girls, including {but not limited to} Type 2 diabetes, lack of prenatal care and birth support, obesity, and breast cancer. 

There is much work to be done, and we are eager to walk forward in humility, with open hands and hearts.
