OUR STORY

The Fitness Professionals of Color Pacific Northwest is a community that was founded in the Fall of 2019 by a Portland fitness instructor, Angelica Lee. The mission is to highlight + support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) fitness instructors, trainers and coaches here in the Oregon and Washington State area recognizing them of the huge positive impact they make. What started out as a network of a small group of instructors in Portland, now bringing to light many fitness professionals of color of their integral work they do in their city from all over the PNW.   Recently, in Dec 2020, the mission expanded to establish a scholarship fund supporting aspiring BIPOC fitness professionals through financial aid.
