Happy Hump Day! • What better way to celebrate than with some gentle back stretches, brought to us by our pal @coldviking ftr. a very special furry friend 🐕 • This is a particularly good one for folks who wear a chest binder, or who for those who sit at a desk hunched over all day (we see you, summer school students!) • Give it a try and let us know what you think! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #binder #chestbinder #chestbinding #stretching #backstretch #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #humpday
On Sundays, we give THANKS to the many individuals and organizations supporting the work we do! • Today we want to give a HUGE S/O to our buds over at @doughnutparty 💪🏽😺🍩 - they donated the proceeds from their Pride Doughnut last month, bringing in $600 in support for QUEERFLEX!!! • As we move into our new space support like this from the YEG community is essential in us keeping our services financially accessible! • Thanks SO much Doughnut Party! And thanks to each and everyone of you who showed up and bought a doughnut for the cause 🙏🏽🌈🍩 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #shoutoutsunday #shoutoutsundayQF #strongbodies #tenderhearts #doughnutparty
***ULTIMATE FLEX FRIDAY ANNOUNCEMENT *** • We’re excited to FINALLY announce that QUEERFLEX will soon be moving out of the basement!!! • This has long been our dream and we’re SO excited for what this big, roomy, queer-centred, body positive, physically accessible space - located directly under The Pride Centre - is going to mean for our community’s healing and health! • More deets in the weeks to come, but until then... LET’S CELEBRATE 🎉 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #yeggym #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #strongbodies #tenderhearts #bigmoves
Wow... I receive quite a few hateful messages, emails, and comments from folks on a regular basis that are adamantly opposed to the direction that I have taken with my career. But this one came to my home address... my name, company name, and address, handwritten on it. 🔹 I am not naive. I knew that advocating for the rights of folks from my LGBTQIA2S+ community in the area of fitness accessibility would likely bring this type of negative attention. 🔹 But guess what... I don’t fucking care! Bring it! All this sort of thing serves to do is to fuel my fire and passion even more to do whatever I can to help create the changes needed so that everyone feels like that have a safe, inclusive and welcoming space to explore movement and access fitness services. . . . #queerandproud #youcantprayawaythegay #youropiniondoesntmatter #fuelthefire #nothingisgonnastopme #lgbtqrights #lgbtqiarights #transrights #queerrights #transadvocate #makingchange #fitnessactivists #yegfitness #yegfit #queerfitfam #queerfitness #fitnessprofessional #queerfitnesspro

Happy Birthday to our founder and Executive Director, @queerflex_kyle ! • Kyle’s favourite holiday is BIRTHDAYS!!! And not just their birthday, but other people’s birthday, too (how Cancerian of them). • Why? • Because they believe that day you were born changed the course of history forever and that everyone should get a mini-parade and a cake and a laser show as a thank you for being alive and making it this far! • Not into parades and laser shows, but want to help make Kyle’s birthday their best one yet? • Consider becoming a QUEERFLEX Patron for as little as $1USD/month - we’re less than $100 away from meeting our next goal which means MONTHLY FITNESS VIDEOS FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY! • Click the link in our bio and become a QUEERFLEX Patron TODAY!!! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #bodypositivefitness #adaptivefitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #community #birthdays #patreon #thisis34 #strongbodies #tenderhearts #cancerseason

First time sparring...and I survived it! 🔹 Keep your eyes peeled at the 0:30 mark...total cheap and dirty shot! Sorry @j.trained.yeg ! It was not intentional🤭 🔹 soooo hard to breathe with a mouth guard in! This was after 40 minutes of bag and pad training and I was already pretty tired. After 6 1/2 minutes of sparring, I felt llike I was going to die!!! BUT...I loved every second of it!!! SO MUCH!!! Gonna keep grinding and improving. Next step - find a sparring partner in yeg - Any takers? 🥊 . . . #sparring #womenwhobox #womenwhofight #boxing #yegboxing #queerboxer #boxingislife #womenwhofight #yeg #yegfit #yegfitfam #yegfitness #queerfitness #queerfitfam #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #lgbtq #jtrained #lookingfearintheface #inyourbootsfitness
How did I get here?!?! It’s been about 3 months since I started training with @j.trained.yeg and today, he is going to let me do some sparring for the first time!!!! 🔹 Excited, nervous, terrified... all the feelings all at once! EEEEEEK! 🔹 Stay tuned.....I will post some video after its done! I feel like I might throw up!

I’d love to see every health & wellness coach and gym take a page from Kyle’s book and start making fitness more accessible to everyone!! #pride #pride 🌈 #pridemonth #queerssupportingqueers ・・・ We felt it was time to post this neato little checklist again, to help folks in figuring out what gyms they might want to sign up with! • One barrier many folks in the LGBTQIA2S+ community can experience when accessing fitness, is the fear of not know whether or not they are going to have a place to change, if they will be supported by staff in using the change room that fits for them, having to use dead names and checking gender boxes on forms, and more... • If this is something holding you back, try calling a head to a gym or rec centre, and ask them some of the questions on this list (or some of your own!).

Pop us an email at queerflex@gmail.com and we’ll happily give the gym your interested in a call and ask them these very questions on your behalf 💪🏼😺 • LGBTQIA2S+ Fitness Accessibility is more than putting a rainbow sticker on the door and calling it day - you deserve access to a fitness space that understands this and that is willing to take action to this effect in their policies and practices 🖤 • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #fitness #community #accessibility #strongbodies #tenderhearts #fitnessaccessibility

Do you struggle with squatting to depth because you’re worried about balance or that you might not be able to get back up If you squat too low? • Try door frame squats! • Position yourself directly in the middle of the door frame (too far back, and your booty is bumping into things; too far forward and your kissing the frame which is cute but not what we’re going for), with your feet between hip and shoulder width apart, toes straight ahead or at a slight angle if your knees give you issues. • Hover the hands around either side of the frame in front of you, being careful not to hold the frame off the bat, but so you know it’s there to help if you need it. • Squat down to the point your hip crease passes your knee crease, then drive evenly through all 4 corners of the feet as you press back to standing. • A lot of folks find having the frame to the front and back of them gives them a feeling of safety knowing if the topple back something will be there to catch them, and that if they get stuck there’s something in front to grab on to that will help them back up. • Remember to keep your chest up and gaze forward, and work to keep your shoulders stacked over your ankles to the best of your ability. • Not sure if your alignment is right or if your knees are dipping in or out? Set your camera phone up and record yourself, a few reps from the side and a few from the front. This will keep you from twisting through your neck and spine and throwing off your alignment, which often happens when we try to watch our side profile in the mirror as we flex. • Give it a try and let us know if you learn anything new about your body as it goes through this motion! • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfit #yegfitness #yeg #fitness #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #squats #doorsquat #squatform #deepsquats #deeperfeelings #strongbodies #tenderhearts

Shoutout to Emily at the @donwheatonymca for giving some of our #QTYflex crew a great tour of their facility! • Before we started, Emily sat with us as we shared a bit about why programs like #QTYflex are important and answered the questions on our LGBTQIA2S+ Fitness Accessibility Checklist (check queerflex.com under the “resources” tab to download yours!). • While they might not have been able to answer “YES” to all our questions, their support around change room accessibility, members being able to put the name that works for them on their membership (regardless of if it’s their legal name), and staff working on gender neutral language was a good start. • Thanks again for your time, Emily 😺 We hope to work more with you and the YMCA in LGBTQIA2S+ fitness accessibility in the future! • (#QTYflex is a program in partnership with the @yegpridecentre and works to support queer and trans youth in exploring different modalities of fitness while building community.

😺😺😺NEW TRAINER BIO 😺😺😺 Meet QUEERFLEX Trainer, Adebayo Katiiti. • “My name is Adebayo (or Adie, Ads, Adebs, Ade, Addy, Bayo), and I am a transgender athlete who came to Edmonton from Uganda for the ILGA swimming competition that took place in August 2016. I was not able to go back home because of fear of being persecuted by the police and after my family disowned me because of being queer. • I have a Degree in Sports Science from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. I am also a certified physical fitness trainer and Dance instructor from Uganda, and identify as a trans queer dude. My pronouns are He/Him or They/Them. • I believe physical fitness, exercise and sports are the strongest medicine and they have helped heal my trauma and mental health experiences. I believe that every human being young and old is an inspiration to those who want solutions to any physical, mental, or emotional problems, you can get a lot by listening to what they say and sharing intimate feelings. • When I am not queerflexing, I am advocating for rights of LGBTIQ+ Refugees here in Edmonton, and working as an amenity attendant for the city of Edmonton pools and a slide patrol at the World Waterpark. You can also find me making art and writing music that has a powerful influence on my life, and hanging out with friends. • I also love to eat donuts, poutine, mac and cheese, ice cream and beer. Poutine and mac and cheese are my favourite Canadian food! I also love dancing, swimming, and playing soccer. • I am super excited to be apart of an organization whose passion is to create a safe space for the LGBTQIA2S+ community. I am ready to learn and offer my skills to the QUEERFLEX community, and am so proud to be part of this thing which has brought us all together. • You can follow me on Instagram @cute_is_adebayo#queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfitness #yegfit #yeg #fitness #personaltrainer #yegpersonaltrainer #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #strongbodies #tenderhearts #welcomeaboard

😺😺😺 NEW TRAINER BIO 😺😺😺😺 Meet QUEERFLEX trainer, Terje Snow. • “Throughout all of the change that I’ve been through in my life, fitness has been something that has always helped me keep anchored and helped in my mental health. I’ve personally struggled with depression and exercise is one of the things that helped me immensely. • I’ve been privileged to have a couple of different friends and fitness professionals who shared their knowledge with me over the years. Their help gave me the confidence to explore different avenues of physical activity that I hadn’t felt comfortable to do before. • Being transgender I have had my own personal difficulties in finding spaces accessible spaces that I feel comfortable coming out at and I know this is often the case for other LGBTQIA2S+ folks. Feeling honoured and recognized for who you are is healing in itself, so I am excited to be a part of QUEERFLEX in creating a space that does that, so that others can also feel safe accessing fitness. • I got my @canfitpro Personal Training Specialist certification so that I can be a part of a movement that sees a commitment to change in the fitness industry in Edmonton and beyond. • When I’m not Queerflexing, I’m doing communications and marketing in the Fine Arts and Education sector or hanging out with my Wife Janelle and my Stepdaughter. Oh and our four fur friends (Two cats. Two dogs. All foster fails). • You can follow me on Instagram @coldviking “ • #queerflex #queerfitness #queerfit #queerfitfam #yegfitfam #yegfitness #yegfit #yeg #fitness #personaltrainer #yegpersonaltrainer #queer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqia2s #strongbodies #tenderhearts #welcomeaboard
