Not everyone in the Fediverse enjoys the same passions as us.

Failure to join us in our efforts of maintaining a perceivably reputable stature could see your account flow right into our escalation process, as outlined in our Code of Conduct. It's impossible to make everyone out there happy with our output. However, it is FIT OPEN ADMIN who will make the final call on what is worthy of fair moderation here on our instance. Users and instances operators have the ability to federate or share, hide or block us, as they deem appropriate.

This is our collaborative social space. We're establishing a community, across the globe. Choosing to step away from the centralisation of gyms. To firmly ground ourselves in the freedom of discovery, and participation of outdoor fitness & endurance sports. Our home is formed as a dependable, advertisement free, vibrantly safe space for all. We all need a little support to get us to our goals. We're here to connect as humans, share tips & advice, a supportive community when things turn tough, and celebrate those personal wins along with you.
Mastodon provides the framework of our social platform. It's open source and based on the Web standards body W3C recommendation -- 'ActivityPub'. Over 2,000 active instances are already federating together in excess of 1.3 Million diverse users, each adopting decentralisation as a true alternative. We're a new addition to these highly distributed instances.
Anyone can join us here in our Mastodon home. All we ask is that you observe our Code of Conduct*, linked below. Each instance has it own rules. If you're not a fan of ours, take a look at joinmastodon.org for alternatives.
Sign up today. By choosing 'Fit Open' as your home, you'll add your fitness lifestyle to this growing community.
More details of how join in the creation of our social enterprise, will come in the months ahead. See our progress in the documents below.
