OUT*side Program

 

OUT*side is now also on Instagram and Facebook There you can get to know our team and the trainers and find the latest information. Like and follow to us!

As part of our project, OUT*side – movement and sport for trans*, inter*, non-binary folks and women* friends, we worked together with partners TriQ, Gladt e.V. and Sonntags-Club to organize a range of free health-related activities and workshops on empowerment through movement at locations throughout Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg in 2017. This project is sponsored by the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg's planning and coordination department for health.

Training sessions are open to people of all levels of fitness, free of charge and not bound to a club. As of September 2018, all of our coaches are trans*, inter* and/or non-binary.

CoronaVirus Time

We have decided to offer online sport trainings for trans*, inter* and nonbinary people as part of the OUT*side project. We know that they can be strongly affected by the current "shutdown" and especially by health impairments and consequences. For this purpose, we have the OUT*side project. Because especially in this time we think it is important to pay attention to each other and try to provide a safer space.

Now you don´t have to be in Berlin to joy us! :-P

Here our programme Februar-März 2021 - ONLINE- LIVE Training:

BACK HEALTH FOR PEOPLE WHO WEAR (HAVE WORM) BINDERS MIT JOON

(for trans*, inter* and non-binary folks)
Date: Tuesday

Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Language: German

Binders force us into a forward-pulled posture, which can lead to neck, chest, shoulder and back pain or tension. Breathing is difficult. The ties restrict freedom of movement and can lead to incorrect posture / imbalances.
In the course we want to do beneficial strengthening and relaxation exercises for straightening the spine for an hour. Through gentle stretches and targeted strengthening of the upper body, we bring imbalances back into balance. We open the chest so that we can breathe more deeply again, relieve the neck and lower back.
We strengthen the back of the shoulder and the upper back. For the course, please wear a strap or something similar that is as comfortable as possible, not the tightest you have.
We need a yoga mat or a comfortable, non-slip pad, a towel approx. 60 x 90 cm and / or a broomstick and small dumbbells of 0.5 or 1 kilo (alternatively, e.g. filled water bottles).

Coach: Joon (er) is a licensed trainer for health sports and rehabilitation sports / orthopedics and prefers to offer queer sports with Seitenwechsel and Pfeffersport. I am happy to be able to create another space with you, in which we can feel comfortable with our bodies as they are and our identities - without binary performance pressure, passing pressure whatever ...
