About

Hello and welcome to my Patreon!

My name is Ilya and I’m a non binary trans masculine person currently living North Carolina. I am the owner of Decolonizing Fitness, LLC. I’m a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and ACE Certified Medical Exercise Specialist  with over 13 years of rehabilitative and functional training experience. I am social justice advocate and educator whose work centers healing justice & gender justice. I am also a freelance writer and have contributed to Every Day Feminism, Self Magazine , Mashable and AthleteAlly.

I am currently a member of the ASDAH and Board Member of the Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group.
I have assisted in educating various healthcare providers on ways they can better serve their transgender and gender diverse patients. Decolonizing Fitness is also equipped to work with fitness and movement professionals so that they may cultivate safe environments for individuals who typically don’t feel welcomed in the current fitness climate. 

As a black trans business owner living in the rural southeast U.S. it’s been very difficult funding and maintaining my work. Much of the populations I serve are cash poor and lack the resources to pay for the services I provide. I make as much as I can accessible to folks which has in turn caused me to be stretched very thin.  

Thankfully, my online community (YOU) have helped the Decolonizing Fitness collective grow which has allowed for my business to stay afloat. My supporters are people who see a need and want to make a difference and I’m so appreciative of that. 

I created this Patreon so that I could consistently share all my beautiful visions, projects, collaborations, ideas, writings, research with you in a more sustainable way. 

All of my work rest at the intersections of trans & body liberation, fat acceptance, disability, healing and racial justice. I need your help to get these things off the ground and I promise...you will gain access to some wonderful resources.

If you feel moved to make a one time donation you can contribute to the cause HERE

If you’re not in the position to become a patron, no worries at all! Your support means the world to me and I’d be so happy to hear any feedback you could share in regards to my page.

I appreciate you!

Ilya
