An inaugural bash to open the doors of PDX’s first body-positive barbell gym! Health Club is a worker-owned / body-positive / community-centered barbell gym in Portland, OR. We offer people of all shapes, sizes and identities the opportunity to learn transformative movement techniques with their friends in a fun and cozy environment. healthclubpdx.com Facebook /healthclubpdx Twitter @healthclubpdx Instagram @healthclubpdx The Health At Every Size® Principles are: Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights. Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs. Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities. Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control. Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.
