Best Fitness Professional Who Doesn’t Give AF What You Weigh

Kate Moore’s in-class motivations and out-of-class emails have always been heartfelt and outspoken. But in 2020, Moore got loud too. Loud about the diet industry, which she feels undermines people’s efforts to improve their physical and mental health. Loud about her gym-owning peers, whom she feels focus on fitness as physique through a fatphobic lens. Moore describes Music Row’s getFIT615 as “actively anti-diet-culture, anti-fatphobic, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic and anti-racist.” She believes that bodies and communities are intertwined, and it is time to speak up about supporting both. Beats counting calories. MARGARET LITTMAN
