Here at Gymshark, we believe that all women belong in every corner of the fitness industry. That’s why we’re using our platform to highlight our Gymshark Changemakers; the women* going above and beyond to make change, break the bias and use their glass ceilings as dance floors.
And that's where you, and The Changemaker's Grant come in.
With three $10,000 grants available, we're asking you to nominate yourself, or someone you believe to be a local Changemaker who is working hard to improve not just the culture, but the future of conditioning - for all women. Below, you'll find everything you need to be able to complete your grant application 👇.
