Health at every size,
Body diversity advocates, with a passion for creating a safe space for growing understanding around these topics and how they relate in our fields of fitness, nutrition, and psychology
The Self Compassion Project was created in 2019 as a way to create a community around health at every size, self acceptance, advocating for body diversity and mental health issues.
Our founder Jenna Donovan has worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and has a degree in psychology. In her work in fitness she saw how certain value was being placed on appearances over health, and a lot of problematic behavior was being endorsed.
Meeting other individuals just as passionate about health at every size in other fields really fueled the desire to create a space where they could all communicate, offer support, facilitate conversations around these topics and advocate for those passions.
