FITNESS FROM THE HEART

We believe fitness goes beyond exercise alone.

To us, fitness is the core of a young girl’s overall well-being and self esteem. That’s why we started Fitness LuvsMe — an interactive program that focuses on a healthy lifestyle for young girls. Our program consists of three pillars.

We Educate

Providing health and wellness programs for young girls and their parents.

We Energize

Instructional workout routines designed to promote healthy and loving environments.

We Unite

Partnerships with local organizations to teach the importance of nutrition and meal planning.

WHAT WE DO

We promote a healthy lifestyle for our community’s youth.

Our programs have been built solely around the health and wellness for young girls. We do so through expert curriculum, after-school fitness coaching and community outreach. Our number one goal is to help this next generation of young women see themselves the way we see them — powerful and limitless.

Who We Are

Fitness LuvsMe, Inc.

Fitness LuvsMe, Inc. started in 2016 with the vision of motivating and inspiring girls in the Atlanta community to be healthy and happy through fitness.

Executive Director, Ria Shannon realized a love of fitness after being inspired through workouts involving dance. Even though she had a background in Aviation Engineering, she became so passionate about fitness that she attended the National Academy of Sports Medicine. After that, she became a certified Zumba instructor.
