Kate and Charlie have created a place and culture unlike anything I have ever been to or seen in a gym. Charlie and Kate and all the coaches and members at 8 Limbs seem to make it a priority to have the gym be a place for people of all body types, ages, sexualities, genders, races. This is a place where family comes first, where toddlers run wild, where there is no shame, and where everyone does their best – regardless of what that means for them. Because of all this I have finally found a place where I am comfortable enough to shed some of the traumas of toxic exercise culture and body image. I finally feel so proud of my body and what it can do for me (and what I can do for it) while realizing that not everyone has the same abilities and thats okay.
