Introduction to FiA
WHAT IS FIA?
FiA stands for Females in Action, and is a peer-led, zero-cost, nonprofit workout group for women that takes place in many areas across the nation and continues to expand. Workouts are typically bootcamp style and last from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the location. We are women only, all ages, and all skill levels. Our workouts will work for you no matter where you are in your fitness abilities. Our workouts are outdoors: rain or shine, hot or cold, but we are always under a pavilion or in a parking deck in inclement weather.
FiA Alpha started in September of 2017 and has since spread to other locations across the state & across the country. Feel free to check out www.fianation.com to learn about all things FiA and to see just how big this little workout group really is!
WHAT DO YOU BRING?
We usually recommend everyone bring a mat or towel, gloves (any kind will do, and most women actually choose not to wear any), water, and hand weights if you have them.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not share equipment, and we maintain a 6-foot distance between each person.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every workout is led by a volunteer “Q”. The “Q” is not a professional, but one of our very own FiAs; therefore, each workout is different and you work out at your own risk. We take turns volunteering to Q, and, if you decide to, you can sign up here! Most Qs will post the night before the workout (in our Facebook group) to let you know what you need to bring and where exactly to set up at each AO (location / Area of Operation). Most workouts are bootcamp style and are always able to be modified. So, no matter your skill level, it can work for you!
