Who We Are

MissionFit is

Baltimore’s Youth
Its Future Coaches
Creating an Inclusive and Intentional Community

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.

Our Programs

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.

(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.

Summer Program

Rise Up Ride Out (RURO), is a team of three youth-centered nonprofits – MissionFit, BYKE and Corner Team – working together to provide a health & wellness, and social & emotional learning summer program for Baltimore City youth. We believe that achieving health and wellness requires one to define goals in respect to physical fitness, social awareness and emotional control. Our comprehensive program is designed to promote autonomy by encouraging and instilling transferable life skills. 

RURO is for youth 13-18.

Youth Interviews

MissionFit Youth Spotlight: Sage

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!

Our Blog



People have been asking for memberships to our super awesome community gym for quite a long time, and we couldn’t open up our doors to everyone who asked because the gym would be so packed that it could interfere with our singular focus of Strengthening Baltimore’s Youth. After much deliberation, we have decided to open our doors for a few members so we can have the focus and space to welcome our youth. 

If you’re interested in a membership please email Wes at

"Thank you for helping me build confidence, and for doubting myself less."

That’s what Di’Kera, one of our Strength Ambassadors in 2021 said to her Coaches at the end of the summer program.

Our young people: 

  • Have more confidence
  • Have healthy mentors
  • Have safe space to exercise
  • Feel stronger and healthier
  • Are part of a healthy community

And we know that all of these impacts are linked to positive outcomes in the classroom, in the mind, and in life.

If you want to help make health possible for Baltimore’s youth, please become a supporter now.
