We are the women of the fitness industry. Created to champion one another and achieve our ultimate potential. Known for unparalleled career development and networking. Fostering deeply connected relationships, elevated synergy and a collaborating, supportive community. Working together to see women create a diverse and inclusive future for our industry. 

WIFA is a 501 (c) 6, global not-for-profit association that facilitates virtual and live events to support its members with useful information to help promote their professional growth. All of our meetings include "crowd voted" topics, so we make sure we are talking about what matters most to you.

At WIFA we believe that success comes by collaboration. The milestones we have achieved are truly because of the collaboration of our partners and members. Our WIFA HQ team is so very grateful to all the community support that makes our work a reality. 

I am especially proud of our members' success. When I read your stories, see your faces on speaking event promotions, and watch the LinkedIn announcements sharing your new jobs, it confirms why we exist, and that what we do for women in fitness matters infinitely to our collective success, you keep me going on the hardest days.

It is not lost on me that without you, we would not exist, you are the momentum that keeps us moving. 

With love and appreciation,

Lindsey Rainwater
