While some things in life can change sometimes every day, one thing has remained consistent since the inception of The WOD Life: All are welcome, all are loved, all are accepted — just as you are. June is Pride Month, and we’re proud to honor the LGBTQIA+ community with some sweet new apparel, part of the proceeds of which we will donate to The OUT Foundation and WOD OUT.

In bringing our new limited edition design to the public, we knew that we wanted it to be a collaboration with members of the community. So, we combined forces with gyms and athletes to celebrate what this time of year is all about.

Louie Fuentes also shared with us how CrossFit has changed his life. Having been raised in a religious and conservative home didn’t make it easy for Louie to be himself. Fortunately, he found the acceptance that he needed and deserved at his local CrossFit gym, CrossFit 168 in Sydney.

Tom Miazga is a three-time and the current fittest seated man on earth. You can catch him getting his WOD on both as an athlete and coach at Adapt & Conquer CrossFit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he thinks about his fitness community, one word comes to mind: inclusivity. He came out two years ago and will tell you that it was easily one of the best decisions of his life. Now, he gets to live authentically and truthfully, and no one treats him any differently for it.
