FTM Fitness World is a company dedicated to give the active men of Trans experience the tools and space to be empowered, well-rounded and fulfilled.

Our story:

FTM Fitness World is an example of a business that grew from a community effort. It started as a Facebook support group, migrated to an online hub with blogs and articles, and turned into an online business within a year. From the inquiries we received from around the world, we realized that it was time for something better, bigger and that we could call our own. That’s the 1st Annual FTM Fitness World Conference was born.

Our first annual conference was created with the goal to bring the Trans community, specifically men of Trans experience closer together through different activities. Being able to host the first historical bodybuilding competition for men of Trans experience is something that we are truly proud of and that we hope will grow into an international event in the years to come.

Our Focus:

We strive to help you reach your full potentials, not only in fitness and in your physical transition, but in every area of your life because we believe that happiness starts from the inside out. That’s why we’re focusing on all the major five cores of one’s life: Wellness (Fitness, Nutrition, Health), Spirituality, Finances, Relationships and Personal Development.

Our Missions:

Our main mission is to build a well-rounded and diverse Trans community by  being as inclusive as possible, by embracing diversity at every corner of our community and our lives, by focusing on what unites us versus what separates us and by bridging the gap between us based on age, sexual orientation, race, socio-economical background, religious affiliation, and more.

Our mission for the conference is to empower our community. We want to be able to leave the conference wanting more in our lives; expecting excellence while rejecting mediocrity; pushing ourselves to become the change we want in our local community; learning to realize that we have all the tools we need to succeed in every area of our lives; and most importantly, encouraging each other to be our brothers and sisters’ keepers.
