Top LGBTQ-Friendly Fitness Studio in Denver (2023)

Which downtown Denver gyms are most welcoming and accepting to queer and trans people?

Everyone deserves a place to exercise where they feel comfortable and accepted. As a gay woman, I’ve been in fitness studios and gyms that felt unwelcoming, whether because of cliques, too much bro energy or what have you. It’s not always a focus for fitness studios in Denver to create a non-judgmental accepting environment for all. Elitism has no place in fitness! You shouldn’t feel uncomfortable working out in your fitness studio!

This has even more meaning for me, as a gay Latinx woman who used to be obese. I finally decided to lose the weight through lifestyle modifications, but, even after I lost the weight and even as a super strong fit person, I was often intimidated going into new fitness studios or gyms. Thus, I deeply understand the drive to find a gym that is accepting, welcoming, and supportive. This is why when I founded my Denver fitness studio, Worth The Fight Boxing, it was mission critical that it be a space that was unintimidating and welcoming for all.

Are you wondering what fitness studio is gay-friendly, trans-friendly, or queer-friendly, or what fitness studio is best for LGBTQ people in Denver in 2023? You’ve come to the right place.

Come try Worth The Fight Boxing, a downtown Denver gym that is 100% queer-owned!

At Worth The Fight Boxing, we don’t believe that elitism and judgment has a place in fitness. Everyone should have a place to work out that is welcoming and accepting, including LGBTQIA++ people. We’ve all been to fitness studios where we didn’t feel comfortable. This is especially critical in a fitness studio where your members all work out together because everyone will be there together at the same time, doing the same movements, which can invite comparison. Another thing that makes Worth The Fight Boxing Denver a great place to work out as a gay or trans person is that we have multiple queer coaches – it helps people to feel more comfortable when they see themselves represented among your staff. We also train our coaches to be sensitive and welcoming to queer people. (Read more: This Denver fitness studio offers topnotch authentic boxing training)

Also, Worth The Fight Boxing Denver is one of the only queer-owned, female-owned, BIPOC-owned fitness studios in Denver. Ownership of a business matters. If the owners of a business are queer, they can empathize with the struggles of being queer, and that will shape how they approach their business. That is true for us. That is why we choose to have LGBTQ coaches and train all our coaches to be sensitive to issues that queer people might experience. That is also why we regularly post about and promote our LGBTQ coaches and members. We also have special events geared around pride month. We celebrate you!
