The Biggest Fitness Companies Worldwide Support WIFA’s International Women’s Day #womenhelpingwomenww Campaign 2022 (AND YOU CAN TOO!)

In celebration of International Women’s Day, WIFA launches the most significant global advocacy campaign for women in fitness worldwide- #womenhelpingwomenww

WIFA (The Association for Women in Fitness and Wellness) and partners are launching the #womenhelpingwomenww campaign on International Women’s Day to celebrate the women working in the fitness sector. WIFA exists for women to champion one another to achieve our ultimate potential so that, together, we can create a diverse and inclusive future for our Industry.

#womenhelpingwomenww - A BIG Gift and A BIG Impact

Our 2022 International Women’s Day Partners are getting six-month WIFA memberships to GIFT to the women in their companies’ networks AND the opportunity to participate in our Gender Diversity Survey (in partnership with SportAlliance.)

There are many global studies and statistics about women in the workforce.

We don’t have many specifics to go on in the fitness industry. WIFA has partnered with SportAlliance to continue this discussion and get a global perspective on gender equity in the fitness sector. Our survey on Gender Diversity is currently being distributed worldwide. The results will be presented in Cologne at the European Health and Fitness Forum on April 6, 2022. Our intention is to build on this report and develop further programmes, training and initiatives that will help encourage more women into leadership positions in the fitness sector..

“This will be our biggest International Women’s Day Campaign ever, and it’s made possible by the commitment of our partners worldwide. We will be reaching hundreds of thousands of women working in the fitness sector. Women helping women is what WIFA is all about, and when women rise, the world rises. Our mission and actions are behind those words every day, and we reaffirm them as we celebrate International Women’s Day.” says Lindsey Rainwater, Founder and CEO of WIFA

WIFA has teamed up with partners all over the world to launch the #womenhelpingwomenww campaign on March 8, 2022, including: Sport Alliance, Les Mills International, Matrix, Precision Nutrition, The American Council on Exercise, Trib3, Escape Fitness, BootCamp Challenge, Basic-Fit, Myzone, Miles Nadal JCC, Title Boxing Club, YMCA Dallas, Fitness Ambassadors, Movati Athletic, Fit Bodies, Struct Club, CleverFit, Urban Sports Clubs, Mindbody, Gympass and FLOE Fit
