Our Passion

The Association of Diverse Fitness Professionals, Inc. (ADFP) was founded by fitness expert, Althea Lawton-Thompson, in 2005 and became a 501c3 agency in 2006. ADFP is dedicated to providing fitness and wellness instruction, education and programming to youth, families, seniors, and the disabled specifically targeting but not limited to ethnically diverse, lower income, underserved communities. Further, ADFP serves as a forum and bridge to unite professionals from diverse preventive care, public health and wellness fields. ADFP is made up of exercise instructors, health educators, nurses, doctors, public health professionals, nutritionists, and personal trainers. We have partnered with government agencies, fitness centers and medical facilities to put on health fairs, fitness events, ongoing exercise classes, cooking demonstrations, educational school programs and more.
