Fit Inspire Health is the brain child of creator Carly Erskine. Stuck underground waiting for a train in NYC, she began to peruse the nearby magazine stand for reading material. Looking at the fitness and health related magazines, she noticed a gross underrepresentation of body types, ethnicities, and age groups. None of the women on the magazines looked like her or anyone she knew so she decided to do something about it.
Fit Inspire Health is a space to showcase health and wellness by persons of any age, shape, size, or skill level. It serves as an inclusive environment to stimulate hope and inspiration in all of its readers. It is our belief that diversity of fitness formats, body types, ages, and skill level will help to welcome a greater audience seeking to be a part of the fitness culture while allowing them to embrace fitness and healthy eating in a way that resonates best with them.
We hope to inspire and encourage current health and wellness enthusiasts as well as newcomers to continue to participate in the fitness culture.
