Plus-size, rubenesque, curvy, fluffy or fat...however you describe yourself...if you are over-weight and want to get healthy, this meetup is for you. All fitness levels are welcome, all body types are welcome, and all women are welcome! I started this group because I wanted to find some other plus-sized ladies to workout with, without feeling extra self-conscious or extra susceptible to body-shaming at the gym. I'm on the South Side, so while I would love to include activities and people from all over the city, I feel like there are not a lot of formal opportunity for body-acceptance fitness on the southside. So, that being said, if you want a gym buddy or a biking friend for nice spring ride by the lake, join this meet up! We can plan activities and figure it out as we go along!
