What we're about

FiA is about:

- Getting together with a group of diverse women who work to make each other stronger in all areas of their lives

- Enjoying the accomplishment felt in pushing yourself and your body to a fit and healthier place while encouraging others to do so as well

- Enjoying the camaraderie of bringing together old and new friends to form common bonds that last beyond a workout class

- Sharing your positive attitude, your optimism, your faith in humanity or religion to uplift those around you

Fun Free Fitness for Females

Audubon Park

Get your Body, Mind, and Heart connected. Waking up early might be tough _BUT_ it all feels worth it after spending 45 minutes with a handful of other women -- of ALL ages and fitness abilities -- who are encouraging each other to move our bodies. FiA (Females in Action) is a peer-led, zero-cost nonprofit workout group. Each workout is led by a volunteer "Q" (*see disclaimer below). We are glad you stopped by and hope you consider joining us soon, if you haven't already. Know that we don't leave anyone behind! We laugh, we cry, we support each other. FiA NOLA started in September 2016. We hope to increase our number of Qs and our number/locations of workouts. Currently, our ...regular schedule includes the following: TUESDAY: "Swamp Stomp" 5:30am Audubon Park @ St. Charles THURSDAY: "Stargazers" 5:30am Audubon Park @ St. Charles SATURDAY: "Lawn & Order" 7:30am City Park Woldenberg Great Lawn Workouts are 45 minutes. You may also notice that our workouts are named (i.e. "Lawn & Order"). We recommend you bring a towel or yoga mat for core type of stuff. You can opt for gloves (gardening et al) if you don't want to get your hands dirty for pushups, etc. Some people do workouts without either of these. The Q will often post in the group a day ahead to let you know what you might need and for roll call. If you plan to go, you can respond with a HC (hard commit)...but we certainly understand things happen...you are not held to showing up...and you can always come without putting in an HC. You will get a nickname at the end of your first workout. Until then you are considered an FNG (friendly new gal). Backblasts (descriptions of the workout from the day) are posted after each session (although we admittedly haven't been as good at that as the other FiA regions!). *FiA makes no representations with regard to the skill level of workout leaders, the safety of the exercises performed during workouts, or the hazardousness of the premises upon which workouts are conducted.

Lawn and Order - City Park

Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn Across From Storyland

Get your Body, Mind, and Heart connected. Waking up early might be tough _BUT_ it all feels worth it after spending 45 minutes with a handful of other women -- of ALL ages and fitness abilities -- who are encouraging each other to move our bodies. I can't tell you how much better my whole day ends up being on the days I join in the FiA workouts. Bring a yoga mat, water bottle, and a friend, and meet us at the designated location. FiA stands for Females in Action and is a no-cost, informal community of women whose goal it is to make each other stronger in all areas of our lives. Before the demands of the day pull us in different directions, FiAs start their day with a peer-led workout. During this time, we experience a physical and personal growth that radiates through the rest of the day - enabling us to be better daughters, sisters, employees, spouses, friends, bosses, and mothers. FiA focuses on supporting and encouraging one another to push beyond comfort zones. FiAs of all fitness abilities can work out alongside one another and all become stronger at the same time. No woman left behind. Supporting you, challenging you, and cheering you on - those 45 minutes are a great investment in YOU so that when you're tackling all the rest of your roles, your heart, mind, and body are ready. FiA here in New Orleans got started by a gal named Anna Gray, aka "Spokes," who moved here from South Carolina, where she originally became a FiA.
