the project

The Know Your Fitness Campaign (also known as Know Your Fitness DC) is a health and wellness initiative which provides free and fun workout programs in local communities throughout the Washington Metropolitan region. The objective is to encourage community participation through cooperation, while leveraging “healthy” competition within the region for the best possible health outcomes; the results are then presented in the form of community health report cards. 

We rely on volunteers' commitments to execute the Campaign.  Our 'ambassadors' and fitness professionals host workout sessions, organize their respective communities, and encourage participation in the exercise regimes and fitness assessments that we provide. Going forward, expansion plans include partnerships with insurance companies, doctors' offices, and holistic medicine practitioners.  Additionally, we intend to incorporate Business Improvements Districts (BID) and Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) as stakeholders in our multiple communities-wide Campaign.  

The end-goal is to amass a sufficient amount of neighborhood/community focused health and wellness data which we hope will be useful in informing local health policy discourses and improving health disparities. 

the steps

We will use social media platforms extensively to promote the Campaign and reach at least 10 communities in DC.  Local BIDs and ANCs will provide the platforms for community support and outreach.  Our monthly workouts and fitness assessments will serve as the active platform for outreach among the community. 

why we're doing it

We believe that underserved communities, have serious health issues, and deserve equitable access to fitness. While great strides have been achieved, we believe that our "bottom-up" approach to health and fitness can bring about tangible and positive changes in in health care outcomes for DC communities We believe that our approach can keep each community accountable and provide them with a widely accessible and fun way to participate in fitness workouts. As Know Your Fitness DC grows, so will the sense of  camaraderie amongst the participants within their community.
