OUR MISSION

Radically Fit was built to serve the LGBTQ/POC community by offering an inclusive, body positive, safe space for anyone to workout and build strong relationships.

 

A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER

I first fell in love with fitness shortly after my good friend passed away at a young age. We were 18, and it changed my life forever. I dealt with this death in many unhealthy ways, until I found the gym. I spent hours in the gym moving through grief by moving my body. After exercise helped to heal me, it quickly began to empower me. This empowerment was the catalyst for why I became a personal trainer. The things exercising (in all its forms) can do for our minds, bodies & souls continues to amaze me on a daily basis. Working out to feel empowered and to heal my emotional scars was the best gift I have ever given myself and it is the greatest gift I have been able to pass on to those I love.

 

As a queer woman of color who doesn’t fit the fitness industry's expectations of what a trainer should look like-I have dealt with my fair share of body shaming and body hating. However, my perspective shifted after working in our community and being praised for my work instead of the physical aspects of my body. I got my first job as an intern at gym in Oakland, working with the Queer community. I had finally found my calling, and more importantly, I had started to build what would soon become my community here in Oakland. I knew after working there that I would be back one day to serve my community by of offering a body positive community gym for ALL of us.

 

It has been my absolute privilege to work with our community as a trainer, and I am beyond excited to take this leap in my career and offer this space for us. I promise to lead with kindness and genuine love for this community, I promise to ensure that ALL bodies are honored and supported at our gym and I promise to do anything and everything in my power to keep us safe and nourish our growth. Thank you to all who have supported me over the past 5 years as I made my journey to this point, and to those who continue to support me as we move forward together!

 

With love,

Luca Page

Founder of Radically Fit

Lindsey has been a personal trainer living and loving in Oakland for over five years. After falling in love with working out, they wanted to share that passion with anyone who wanted to find it. As a queer person of color, they wanted to be able to open and run a gym for the LGTBQ/POC/Body Positive community. With the help and support of their community in Oakland, this dream became a possibility and Radically Fit was born. They are so grateful to be able to serve her community by doing something they truly love to do while reshaping people’s view of what “being fit” looks like.
