From the short film Passing. Director Lucah Rosenberg-Lee is speaking about how trans men are expected to be mysoginist to fit in as if they had not experienced the effects of that behaviour firsthand as women. The quote haunts me as it applies beyond transphobia to homophobia, bi erasure and the homonormative culture of appropriating status quo behaviours and symbols of people not like us. I'm shamefully taking it out of context because as @decolonizing_fitness has said we often overlook the skills and talents of our own tribe when it comes to our health and wellness ... and we have so much to learn from each other still. ... #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositive #adaptivefitness #yyz #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #decolonizingfitness #mentalhealth #gratitude
Show us a person who doesn’t love working on strength and mobility at 6:30am!!!

LOOK what we got in the mail! A big gay thank you from Kyle at @queerflex from their Big Gay Field Day. We love collaborating with them whether we're running accessible fitness professional workshops together or planning FREE programming for queer and trans youth starting September 27 Kyle shows UP for their community.

Hardest thing I find about my fitness is consistency. Finding a maintainable routine that allows life balance. Every one needs a break now and then. No one should feel guilty about letting their hair down and having a few pints or a piece of cake with their favourite people. 🍰🍻 What matters is we get back on it the next morning. Even if you start with something small. I was not in the mood to exercise this morning. 😒 So I said to myself: "Just start with a little mobility work. At the very least you'll feel good for taking a moment to check in with your body" 90mins later I've smashed out a kettlebell workout and feel like a beast! 💪 Remember to make time out a part of your routine and it will always be easier to maintain. #queerfitness  #girlswholift   #queerpersonaltrainer #bodypositive #personaltrainer
I’ve gotta talk a bit about my experience with ashtanga yoga on Koh Phangan. This is the patio + dog at the little yoga shala I practiced at. Now, I wasn’t and still am not a huge yoga person. I was just whining about needing some sort of exercise on the island and I didn’t like the outdoor bro-y gym so my friend @aimee_lou___ suggested I join her ashtanga class. Now, ashtanga is a difficult type of yoga and I hadn’t exercised in a month so it was a challenge to say the least. It also met every day at 7am and I don’t think I had ever exercised more than 3 days in a row in my entire life. But I like a good challenge and I wanted my muscles back so I did it. Koh Phangan is kind of a morning place anyway. I teared up and had a total inner meltdown the first class when the teacher made me do about 60 yoga push-up vinyasas in a row. I also literally shit blood the last day and went anyway. It may have only been 12 or so days but holy shit I didn’t realize how much muscle and flexibility you could gain in 12 days if you work out every day. It’s actually totally expanded my mind on how I think about myself as an active person. I can’t say I still workout or do yoga every day but I do something physical about 3x per week which is still a lifetime high! What’s your favorite type of yoga or your fav studio and why? . . . . . . ________________________ #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #kohphangan #kohphanganyoga #phangan #kophangan #digitalnomadlife #digitalnomadwomen #queerfitness #queerfitfam #gltpride #lesbiantraveler #queernomad #veganyogi

I grew up in the prairies where you could be dropped in a neighbourhood and have no clue which direction was NWES. In #montreal you know where you are based on #montroyal and the cross. In Toronto you know where you are based on the #cntower 1) my old street in #parkdale 2) my new view in the gay village. I'm so blessed. That's all I can say. ... #churchwellesley #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositive #adaptivefitness #yyz #fitness #montreal #toronto #iloveto #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #personaltrainer #urbanlife #gratitude

There’s no way @lydia1879 can fail with Coach Saysay cheering her on from the sidelines (and even if she did ~ fail ~ that would be cool too, cause a) training to failure is one way to incite muscle growth; and b) Lydia’s value as a human doesn’t hinge on her ability to slam battle ropes around for :30 at a time... even though she is really good at it! 🌈) • Get it Lydia (or don’t.

Big Gay Field Day kicks off TODAY AT 1pm!!! • And so we shall introduce to you the human behind this wild thing called QUEERFLEX, @queerflex_kyle (they/them). • Kyle is the QUEERFLEX MomDad, founding our organization in October 2016. • Fitness helped Kyle reconnect with their body as they came to understand themselves as nonbinary, and they wanted to share this with others while doing what they could to address some of the barriers they faced while accessing mainstream gyms. • Kyle identifies as an instigator, a cat lover, a Cancerian Cry Baby, and your best friend. They share a home with their wife Stephanie, mother-in-law Pam, cat PomPom Sparkle Moonwort, and dog Goose. • They’re still not sure what they want to be when they grow up, but they know for sure if they were a dinosaur, they would be a velociraptor because they are clever and speedy and make weird sounds when they are excited. • Come say “HI” to Kyle and the rest of our 10/10 amazing team today from 1-4pm at the Alberta Ave Community League, then stop by @evowonderlounge for their 5th bday (and our unofficial after party) where $1 from every pint sold will go to supporting QUEERFLEX!!! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018
We’re excited to have @allcyclesyeg on site during our Big Gay Field Day, taking donations of menstruation products for the income insecure in our city! • QUEERFLEX was one of the first orgs in YEG to take an All Cycles donation bin, and we are proud to support this group in all they are doing! • We invite participants of all genders to bring a box (or 5?) of pads, tampons, wipes and more, to tomorrow’s event! • ONE MORE SLEEP, Y’ALL 💪🏽😻🌈🙏🏽 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018
With just one more sleep ‘til our Big Gay Field Day, we’ve got a couple more organizers that we want make sure y’all are in the know about! • Meet @buggerbumperbiggiebaby (he/him)! 🍔 • Chase lives with two cute, black cats named Oki and Pei Mei (said like oak-e and pie-may). Most of his time is spent cuddling with them and if not that, then he's usually dreaming about pizza and donuts. • Chase is the treasurer for QUEERFLEX! He treasures all kinds of things, like love, even if they aren't given a financial value. He’s all the man you’ll wanna see about 50/50 tickets at our event! • If Chase were a dino, he would be a long neck, any of the sauropods, because they seemed gentle and ate leafy greens. • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018
IT’S BIG GAY FIELD DAY ORGANIZER SPOTLIGHT TIME 😻😻😻 • And today we’re featuring @ea_p ! • Emily-Anne (or EA) is originally from an island on the West Coast but has lived all over, including China. She’s called Edmonton home for the last three years and she lives with her awesome wife and their crazy cat, Margaret Catwood. • When not at work she enjoys running, knitting, gluten-free baking and of course Queerflexin’. • EA was instrumental in getting our awesome venue, the Alberta Ave Community League... she’s also doubling as our Resident Station Mom! • She was drawn to QUEERFLEX with a desire to find a safe space to move her body, get strong and connect with the community. • EA would be a pterodactyl if she could, because why wouldn’t you want to be a powerful flying dinosaur?? Amen, EA. Amen 🙏🏽 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018
Wow. Seeing these two side by side is blowing my mind. I set out to live a healthier life a few years back and I’ve worked hard in the gym and in the kitchen to make long term life changes. It was hard y’all 😩😩😩! . . . Undoing what I had done to myself had its share of ups and downs, but I had a goal in mind and I held it there. Diabetes has affected many in my family and I made a commitment to myself to do whatever I could to stay clear of it. I feel better than I ever have! . . . The work I’m most proud of on this journey however is the time and self reflection I committed to becoming a more whole person inside. In some ways the internal work is the hardest. You have to admit things about yourself that you might not want to, and stay the course until you’ve sorted through it all. What lies on the other side is worth it 💯 . . . I say all this to say that it’s possible to change your life. Everyone is on their own path in life towards enlightenment, healing, happiness, health, sobriety, etc. and you may not be ready just yet to do the work. That’s okay! It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to get there, but when you do get there, You CAN do it. Day by day, small changes add up to results. Stay the course and you will arrive at the place you hold in you mind and your heart. . . . ✨✨✨Happy Thursday y’all! . ✨✨✨ . . #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #selfcare #selflove #newlife #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #chari #charimusic #bayarea #eastbay #sf #northbay #queer #queerfitfam

We love a #FlexFriday and what better way to celebrate than to officially release our *FINAL BGFD COURSE MAP*? • Check our final two stations: EXTREME Rock, Paper, Scissoring ⛰ 📝 ✂️ and TIRE FLIPPING 💪🏽👹 • Here are the deets... • Extreme Rock, Paper Scissoring: 20 small hoops are laid out in path on the ground and participants are split into two groups. Each group starts at the opposite end of the path. One person from each group hops, skips or jumps through the hoops until they meet in the middle. This is where the SHOWDOWN BEGINS! The two then have a rock, paper scissor battle - winner keeps hopping along to the next opponent, and the person who loses is off to the sidelines to cheer on the rest of their team! • Tire Flipping: Approach the (200lb lent to us from @evolve_strength ) tire and flip it. That’s pretty much it for this one. Work together as a team, tackle this one as a solo babe, or cheer your pals on from the side lines! • Even just attempting one of these stations gets you a participation sticker! Collect all 7 stickers and be entered in a draw for some neat prizes! • Wanna register for BGFD 💪🏽😺?! Click the link in our bio and do the thing - deadline is Wednesday, Sept 5th! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018
One of the most common things we’ve heard when telling folks about our event, is that they are worried they aren’t “fit enough” to participate. • We totally get how that, and maybe even exercising in front of others, might be a fear for some folks! • Which is why we made becoming a QUEERLEADER an option, and why we made sure to put a variety of activities - mostly fun and feeling-based - in our field day course 🙂 • Our event is organized as such, that even just showing up is awesome! • How much or how little a person does is up to them, and if you register as a team, you can even split up the tasks (solo babes are welcome to band together and do the same)! • Have more questions? DM us here, or email queerflex@gmail.com 💪🏽🦄 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018

It’s BGFD Organizer Spotlight Time, and today we’re featuring @bubbleheadz (she/her) 🌈😺 • Alyssa (said “ah-lee-ssah”) is a French-Canadian queer who loves pop culture, video games, cats, and Doctor Who. Her day job is being a marketing coordinator and social media manager at a local #yegstartup called Showbie. • She loves all things queer and is living her best gay life with her fiancee Jenny, and two cats Totoro and Jiji (by those names, you can tell she’s a proud Studio Ghibli nerd). 🤓 • Alyssa sought out a queer-friendly fitness space, and stumbled on QUEERFLEX! She’s been training with Kyle since March 2018, and is thrilled to have found a safe space with zero judgement in all aspects of fitness. • She is helping with the Big Gay Field Day’s social media and graphic design. • If she were a dinosaur, she would probably be a Velociraptor because she wishes she could have one as a pet, specifically Blue from the Jurassic World movies. 💙 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018

We’re just a little over two weeks out from our BIG GAY FIELD DAY! • What better time to start releasing our course map? • First up: Tug-Of-Make-Love-Not-War • Deets: Once 8-10 people are at this station, they'll be split into two groups, one on each side of the rope (team members may end up on opposite sides!). Just like in regular tug of war each side will pull until the first person from the opposite side has stepped over the middle line... the side that pulled the other side over gets to give pre-made affirmations cards (or make ones if they are feeling creative!) to those on the side that got pulled over. • *EVERYONE GETS A PARTICIPATION STICKER!!! • **COLLECT ALL 7 PARTICIPATION STICKERS TO BE ENTERED TO WIN A NEAT PRIZE! • Register as a solo-babe, team of 4 or QUEERLEADER today through the link in our bio to get in on the good times 💪😻🌈 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #fundraiser #yegfundraiser #yegevents #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #BGFD2018

Meet Kasey! Kasey was our @acefitness practicum student this summer, and we’re so happy to have her carry on helping us put together our Queer and Trans Health Resource list! • Here’s a bit about Kasey... • “My name is Kasey Petruk and my pronouns are She/Her. I recently graduated from the ACE Personal Fitness Trainer program from Elevated Learning Academy. • Currently I am finishing my practicum certificate through QueerFlex which has been a fantastic learning experience. • I was born and grew up in Edmonton and I am a huge mixed martial arts and fantasy nerd. My other pastimes include swimming and biking. • I got into the fitness industry as a transwoman hoping to make a more inclusive and empowering environment for LGBTQIA2S+ communities as one part of a holistic approach to health and healing. • My community has always supported me and I hope to give back in kind.” • So glad you chose us, Kasey, and we look forward to what your future holds as part of our little QF Fit Fam 💪🏽😺🌈❤️ • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #coolpals
I hated gym class. I was awkward, skinny, bullied, non-athletic. I love the gym now because I have seen what it can do for me personally. I have changed my relationship to sport. I have found a way to take space which preserves my integrity and sanity. I am not defined by my past. It's just part of me and allows me to help others who may have had a similar experience. ... #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositive #adaptivefitness #yyz #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #decolonizingfitness #mentalhealth #gratitude

Have been feeling yucky. A little bit of self-care was needed. A few years ago in my annual planning I decided I need more self care specifically for my body which has experienced a lot of physical pain. I'm bad at it. I usually get longer treatments but I've decided to do a few 30 min massages over the next month to deal with upcoming stressful events. How often do you receive manual therapy? ... #preventionisbetterthancure #proactive #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositive #adaptivefitness #thewelltoronto #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #decolonizingfitness #mentalhealth #gratitude

One of the most important reflections I'm proud of from a longer piece as of yet untitled. It's time to change the conversation. Let's turn things around. Let's stop shaming each other's bodies. Let's be proud of what we can do. Exercise is not punishment. We are privileged when we can move.

More quotes from the documentary The Mask You Live In. ... Good news! There's hope!!! We can raise men not boys, and being a man is not about conquest, being less feminine, dominating other genders. It's being comfortable and proud expressing who you are regardless of that expression. ... I might be gay, but I too beat up a kid in grade 1 because I thought it would make me cooler and erase the "faggot" comments I was hearing. Turns out it doesn't. You just bottle them up.

Can we take a break from exercise just to talk about how this incredible artist uses mosaic amongst other art-forms to represent fascia, scars and deep skin layers as a conversation point regarding healing from the inside. ... Wy Joung Kou is chronically ill and uses her art to showcase the power and beauty of "transformation" rather than labelling one as sick with "pain" when it comes to illness we can't see. ... Think, how can glass, concrete, tile represent different states of fascia 🤔🤔🤔😄😄😄👍👍👍 ... Title: Light and Light and Light, Glistening and Alive. From: That's so gay.

#Repost @queerflex with @get_repost ・・・ #queerssupportingqueers QUEERFLEX operates a little differently than most gyms. Not only because of our queer-centred approach in all we do, but also because we approach fitness - and life - a little differently all together. • You won’t find a scale or tape measure on site. There are no “before and after photos” taken. No one will try to sell you on any diets (in fact, House Rule #2 is: Please, no diet talk or body shaming). • Why? • Because we don’t believe a person’s health, wellness or fitness can be measured by their weight, size or ability. Because we believe every body is worthy of respect and care, regardless of “health”, “wellness” or “fitness” (which, btw, you don’t owe anyone). Because we believe food is not a reward, and exercise is not punishment for the way your body takes up space in the world. • You can’t put a number on personal wellbeing. You can’t put a number what it feels like to connect with your body for the first time in who-knows-how-long. You can’t put a number on community. You can’t measure personal power. • This is what QUEERFLEX is about - forming that strong, powerful relationship with yourself and your body, while honouring and holding space for all that makes up you and your tender heart. • We can’t wait for even more of you to join our awesome little fam fam when we open the doors to our fully accessible gym space in Fall 2018. • Until then, never forget how powerful you already are! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #yeggym #queergym #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts
