Everybody’s Fitness Center, located in Auburn, Webster, Sturbridge, Ma, has taken a leading role in reducing these numbers by earning the Plus Size Certified™ designation and opening its doors to those affected by overweight and obesity.
Everybody’s Fitness first location in Auburn will be celebrating 10 years in business on Friday October 25th. They have always been focused on fitness for all shapes and sizes.
Research tells us that fitness spaces are places where those in larger bodies, more than 2 billion people worldwide, experience the most shame and discrimination, seriously harming their health.
Jason Cook, owner of Everybody’s Fitness said, “I’ve seen so many studies that say that weight stigma keeps those with obesity away from gyms. By securing the Plus Size Certified™ designation, we are assuring our public that we are taking the lead in eliminating this obstacle to promote and advance health at every size.”
