Gendered sports teams got you down? Avoiding gym class 'cause there's no change room that first your identity? Not sure if it's a good idea to flex while wearing a binder (it's not, but there are options!)? This workshop addresses those questions, and more! We'll also talk about some tips for getting started if you're new to fitness, some alternatives to movement if you hate fitness altogether, how safely navigate non-queer gym spaces, and what to ask before signing up anywhere for a membership - no cardio required!
