We Take Pride In Progress.
Progress. It's not always visible and it certainly isn't easy. But it's the most valuable thing we can achieve. Progress requires patience. It demands more from you than perfection ever will.
Conditioning allows us to explore who we are and who we can be. The progress made during our sessions, mentally and physically, shapes who we are. Everyone deserves that chance.
Strength has no identity. In here, the only currency is hard work. We don't look the same, train the same, or love the same. Because we are not the same. And yet, we are united.
This Pride month, we're celebrating the Gymshark LGBTQ+ family, their unique journeys of identity and love, their battles, their successes, their progress. Because we all take pride in progress.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO FIND THIS MONTH AT GYMSHARK?
An open and honest conversation with our LGBTQ+ Family; celebrating their unique journeys of identity and love, their battles, their successes... but most importantly, their progress.
Here's just a glimpse of what you can find this month at Gymshark:
Exclusive Interview with Angel Flores (she/her):
Helping to define what conditioning really means to our LGBTQ+ community, meet Angel Joy Flores. She's a trans athlete from Texas (you might recognize her from season 6 of Queer Eye), an advocate for accessible sport, and someone who is passionate about the importance of safe spaces which allow everyone to participate in sport, because "sport is a human right".
Learn how to vogue with the iconic House of Miyake-Mugler (she/he/they):
Iconic by name. Iconic by nature. Ever wondered what it takes to spin, dip and vogue like the pros? Having won HBO's 'Legendary,' we caught up with the House of Miyake-Mugler to learn more about the history of voguing and of course, get a few dance lessons... join us as we learn how to perform some of the most iconic ballroom dance moves this season.
All of that, and just a little bit more...

UNITED BY JOURNEY.
It's not our goals that unite us, but the things we do to achieve them. So, although our training grounds, our end goals and the way we love may differ, sweat is our sport, and hard work is our game plan. Gymshark, it's about belonging.
Our Commitment to Progress
This month, we wanted to support our LGBTQ+ community and show them that we see them and celebrate their wins. But we know that it is not enough. We know that the fight is not over because too many of them do not feel seen or safe yet. Making progress by making conditioning safer & more inclusive for everyone is where we can make a difference.
So, we commit to playing our part in making this happen, one step at a time, however long it will take. We don't have all the answers, but we know that there still are too many issues. So we commit to pushing ourselves to find ways to achieve progress by showing up for our LGBTQ+ community throughout the year and years ahead.
