Seeing an Opportunity

- The pandemic has opened up a lot of opportunity for virtual businesses

- The ‘mainstream’ fitness industry focuses on losing weight or trying to fit in. There was an opportunity here to be themselves and preach a different message of confidence and self-acceptance. 

What made them decide to take the leap?  

- If you don’t see someone else doing it, you could fill that role. Ask yourself, What am I waiting for? Why am I holding back? It’s easy to get caught up in comparison. 

What does representation mean for you?  

-  When you don’t see anyone else doing it, you don’t think it’s possible. They’re moving for the joy of it, and showing others that it is possible to workout without the end goal being weight loss. 

- By living their truth and sharing it on their platform, they’re showing people that they are free to live in this way. You can feel safe, confident, powerful, sexy after a workout. 

-Instead of letting “there are very few women of color who own fitness businesses” keep Dani  Dom from starting they used it as inspiration to BE THAT REPRESENTATION

- Their approach to their classes was about more than just inclusion in the fitness industry but creating a class environment that felt safe!  

What lessons have you learned along the way? 

-  There are pitfalls, and you pivot instead of falling. At the end of it, you’re happy that you kept going. 

- A lot of people fear the unknown. The “What ifs”. You can’t let those stop you. 

Biggest takeaways from this experience: 

Even if you’re scared, do it anyways. Your mess is someone’s amazing. Just go for it.
