360 Fit New Orleans is a group of Black womyn who come together every weekday morning and evening to elevate themselves through collective exercise routines, lessons on eating for optimum health and wellness. 360 Fit is only one of many other Black fitness groups working out in New Orleans open spaces, parks, and squares, most of which have begun during and post the Covid #ShelterInPlace.
