This is a pre-recorded interview with WIFA member, Dynasti Hunt by Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone. WIFA was supported by Two Fit Crazies in interviewing the Accelerate presenters amidst COVID-19.
In this episode Dynasti shares why diversity and inclusion should always be important to your fitness business. Dynasti talks about entering the fitness industry and her realization of the lack of diversity, equity and inclusion and how she has set out to change that. She is committed to pushing studios and instructors to bring DEI processes into their business. She enlightens fitness professionals on the importance to diversify cueing, accessibility, music, marketing, and much more. Dynasti encourages owners to look into their recruitment and marketing strategy to ensure you are not seeking only people who look the same. It is incredibly important for clients that you have a diverse group of employees because your clients want that! The actions and what a company is putting out into the world align. Dynasti also encourages studios and business owners to put out a survey to look into the realities of their DEI efforts. She also shares the importance of body positive messaging and being mindful of how you are treating individuals who do not all look the same. Dynasti applauds the fitness professionals that are pushing individuals to have the hard conversations.
