We strive to provide a community to better themselves while bettering the life of someone else. We’re all about feelin’ good while doin’ good.
HOW IT WORKS
At the end of each class receive a pink $5 bill to vote on one of the five local and overlooked charities. At the end of the quarter, the charity with the most votes will receive the majority of the donation! It’s as simple as that.

And now, a few words from our badass founder…
Why I Created a Giving Back Fitness Community
As a child, I grew up listening to my father’s stories of real hardship. My paternal grandmother passed away from ovarian cancer when my dad was only 6 years old. My father and his 3 siblings were placed from family member to family member to eventually foster care until one day my father gathered his siblings and ran away. As children, they had no one to turn to, so a wild field became their home. My father built a fort in the middle of that field for him and his siblings and for a while survived off random berries and handouts from strangers.
As I grew up, my father continued to share his stories with me. I remember with each story, always being heartbroken by the fact that my father, who is a remarkable man, had gone through such sadness and hardship in his life. I promised myself that it would be my life’s mission that others (men, women and children) do not go have to go through traumas or hardships alone. From as far back as I can remember, I knew my life’s meaning was to give back to those who need it the most, specifically the ones that get overlooked in their cry for help. I started volunteering anywhere I could help as a child into adulthood.
Four years ago, when I found the Lagree Method, I saw how the Megaformer can transform one’s self-confidence and strength in a very short amount of time. I realized then that I had found my way to help make a difference in the world – integrating fitness with giving back to the overlooked charities.
FORM practices Lagree powered by philanthropy. $5 of every class you take will go back to a local charity. With each class you take, not only are you improving yourself, you’re helping your community as well.
