About Decolonizing Fitness

Hello and welcome to my Patreon!

My name is Ilya and I’m a transmasculine 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 theASDAHand Board Member of the Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group.
I have assisted in educating various healthcare providers and movement teachers on ways they can better serve their our most marginalized populations and cultivate safe environments for individuals who typically aren't supported in health and wellness spaces. 

As a black trans business owner living in the rural southeast U.S. it’s been very difficult funding and maintaining my work.

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


Goals
889 of 1,000 patrons
My goal is to be able to fully cover my medical expenses as I am currently uninsured with a two chronic conditions. I would also like to cover my living expenses. This will help me to purchase better quality equipment for filming movement videos and recording podcasts.  With your support I will also be able to pay other BIPOC creators for their services.
