For the greater good of our Youth and the Baltimore community.
What we do
At MissionFit, we provide a safe space, resources for health and an environment for continued personal growth.
Youth Fitness Program
MissionFit offers free fitness classes to Baltimore’s youth ages 11-24. Participation in a consistent, positive fitness program helps our youth to develop confidence and self-acceptance, work ethic and important life skills such as goal setting, time management and accountability. Our youth come to MissionFit from nearby neighborhood communities, as well as through partnerships with youth development organizations.
S.T.E.P. (Supportive Trainer Education Program)
Our S.T.E.P. program works to educate Baltimore’s future personal trainers and coaches. Participants work alongside a certified trainer to develop skills in safety and professionalism, fitness programming and client relationship and development. Upon completion of the program, participants receive the certification of their choice, fully paid for by MissionFit.
An Inclusive Fitness Community
We seek to provide an inclusive intentional community through a variety of classes open to the Greater Baltimore fitness community. Classes are made available at affordable rates. From drop-in rates of $10 to donation-based classes, our goal is to offer a space where community comes first, and profit is secondary.
Summer Program: Strength Ambassadors
For 5 weeks, youth participate in a meaningful summer program to build healthy habits, develop their knowledge of personal fitness, training, and learn the facilitation skills to bring their knowledge to their friends and family. These youth, called Strength Ambassadors, learn the skills to effectively take ownership over their health, and how to teach those skills – coaching, mindfulness, healthy eating, public speaking – to their own community.
Hey Wonderful World!Today is the last day of Community Week, and I couldn't think of a better way to close things out than to showcase Sage. Sage has been coming to us for a little over a year, is a fierce jumper-of-ropes, and has dedication and a smile that we could all learn from. Listen to her talk about jump-rope competitions (at the Apollo no less!), and what it's like being in 8th grade in Baltimore during quarantine.Thank you Sage for always bringing great energy - and we're looking forward to when this is over so you can teach us more than you already have!
Hey everyone! I hope you are staying safe and sane during these times! We planned to have our community day today but how we want to highlight the many wonderful people that make up MissionFit Baltimore took a slightly different approach! We hope that you stay tuned because our community day has now become a community week!The aim of this week is to show a small number of the people that have joined our family and that their message(s) in some form, resonate with you or cause you to reflect and grow in a positive way.Peace & Blessings,The MissionFit Team
The Bloomberg Fellows Program is a groundbreaking initiative that provides world-class public health training to individuals engaged with organizations tackling critical challenges facing the United States. Meet the new class.
People have been asking for memberships to our super awesome community gym for quite a long time. While we can’t open up our doors to everyone because the gym would be so packed that it could interfere with our singular focus of Strengthening Baltimore’s Youth, we can open it to some.
Limited memberships exist. Members get the code to the door and largely make their own hours. Cost is approx $50/month.
Our membership is different though – our members are really part of our community. If you want a gym where you can drop the weights loudly, leave equipment all over the place for the cleaning crew to deal with, please email email@example.com.
