Our Mission consists of 3 core components
Strengthening Baltimore's Youth
Educating its Future Coaches
Creating an Inclusive & Intentional Community
Strengthening the mind, body, and community of Baltimore’s Youth in a positive gym environment.
We provide a safe space, resources for health, and an environment for personal growth through the following programs:
Youth Fitness Program
MissionFit offers free fitness classes to Baltimore's youth ages 11-24. Through fitness programming, we provide a safe space for youth to begin their journey toward health, strength, injury prevention and achievement of sport specific goals. By participating in a consistent fitness program, MissionFit youth develop confidence and self acceptance, work ethic and important life skills such as goal setting, time management and accountability. Our youth come to MissionFit from nearby neighborhood communities, as well as through partnerships with youth development organizations such as Baltimore Police Dept. BRIDGE, SquashWise and Living Classrooms Foundation Fresh Start Program. For more information, please contact MissionFitBaltimore@gmail.com.
S.T.E.P. (Supportive Trainer Education Program)
Through the Supportive Trainer Education Program (S.T.E.P.), MissionFit works to educate Baltimore's Future Coaches and Personal Trainers. Through our mentoring program, participants work alongside a certified trainer to develop skills in safety and professionalism, fitness programming, and client relationship and development. Upon completion of the program, participants will receive their ACE Certification, fully paid for by MissionFit, and may find new employment opportunities available to them such as working with MissionFit or any other commercial gym facility or they may choose to start and run their own small business (i.e. boot camp, personal training, etc).
Inclusive Fitness Community
In addition to the above programs, MissionFit aims to provide an inclusive intentional community through a variety of classes open to the Greater Baltimore fitness community. Classes are made available at affordable rates. From drop in rates of $10 to donation-based classes, our goal is to offer a space where community comes first and profit is secondary.
