To be Eclectic, is to embody a myriad of philosophies and beliefs. And while Eclectic Athlete has been primarily geared towards health and performance, social justice is also paramount.
Eclectic Athlete is committed and dedicated to exposing injustice, combatting racism, and empowering others in seeking equity.
