Online CoachingSocial ResponsibilityThought Leadership Innovators and Trailblazers: Black Fitness Influencers to Follow in 2024

In Canada and the USA, February marks Black History Month, a dedicated time to recognize the ongoing struggle against systemic racism and to highlight the efforts of Black changemakers and activists who are leading the way to a more equitable future.

This annual observance prompts reflection on persisting racial inequities and amplifies the voices and actions of those working towards a more just society. Black History Month also provides us with the opportunity to celebrate Black excellence in all fields of life, and here at ABC Trainerize we’ve decided to highlight a series of Black fitness influencers who are thriving online in 2024.

Here are 5 inspiring individuals in the wellness industry that you should follow for a mixture of fun, mental motivation, workout inspiration, and so much more!
