Fighting For Female Fitness was founded by a woman who has struggled with obesity and was unable to have guided training in an effort to reduce injuries and get the maximum benefits. The foundation has partnerships with trainers that have been super morbidly obese, so they are able to provide personal experience in both exercise and nutritional eating on a budget. We have met with and spoke with several personal trainers that are willing to accept payment and provide personal training to clients we serve.  We are a new non-profit, but we have already been working with low-income neighborhoods and providing nutrition classes.  Fighting For Female Fitness has been in low-income neighborhoods to speak with many of the female residents.  We have also went to some of the charitable food banks in the city to speak with recipients and discuss how they could cook the food they received in a healthy manner.  This will help with the reduction of obesity-related diseases. The funds we raise will be used to pay personal trainers to conduct sessions.  These can cost up to $95.00 an hour and vary from trainer to trainer.  The trainers must agree to accept no more than $65.00 per session no matter what they usually charge.  We plan to pay for at least 70 women to benefit from this fundraiser.
