Following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, Portland, Oregon's Liberation Barbell—a body-positive, vegan gym—will soon be opening its doors.

Liberation Barbell sets itself apart by providing a safe space for all, especially those who feel out of place in traditional gym environments. The gym puts a particular emphasis on positivity, acceptance and empowerment, and proudly states that " We are founded on the idea that physical fitness should be accessible to any body regardless of age, race, ability, gender identity, sexuality, current health, or size."

To counter conventional gym culture, which celebrates eggs, dairy and meat as a source of protein in general, Liberation Barbell will be exclusively sharing advice, supplements and snacks that are vegan.
