Indoor Cycling Magazine would be considered crazy if 100% of their reviews were positive. The majority of our readers and fans want us to be professional and balanced. And do not want us to act like mindless cheerleaders.
Secondly. Many of you are aware that we’re leaders in Instagram for Indoor Cycling. Our account known as @indoorcycling receives thousands of views every week. On Instagram we have posted over 100s of positive posts and have helped over 100 instructors and studios. Moreover. We have communicated with 100’s of instructors and studios. 99% of the time the communication was friendly and professional. Unfortunately some studios are either acting with prejudice and bias or are APPEARING as bias and prejudice.
Which brings us to a very serious issue at Spinco Indoor Cycling Studios, which is owned by Michelle August
Today is July 1st, which is CANADA DAY. This day stands for equality and diversity. Which is even more reason to write about a lack of equality and diversity.
Michelle August who is a successful white business woman, has no problem with some of her fitness studios are 100% female and zero percent male? What happened to equality and diversity? what if his business was 100% man and zero percent women? Michelle August would the first to call that studio sexist.
Here is an image of his Cloverdale, British Columbia studio.
Here is an image of his Kelowna, British Columbia studio.
Here is an image of his Ottawa, Ontario studio.
After we witnessed Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, stand behind and enforce Gender Equity in his leadership team we were appalled and shocked when we noticed Spinco Indoor Cycling Studios acting reckless to Canadian values such as equality and diversity. What will it take to see more men and STOP SEEING zero blacks or South Asians or Middle Easterns Etc .
This is of course unacceptable and reprehensible. Anyone who is half honest would agree that if there were 90% men and 10% women there would be lawsuits, news reports and protests. Now add, no blacks, no middle-easterns, etc.
Even if Spinco Studios decided to add one more male and one more black instructor it would still be egregious and wrong, They need to IMMEDIATELY hire blacks, more males, etc.
So please let us remind you that since the Prime Minister of Canada considers gender equality seriously then shouldn’t Indoor Cycling Magazine?
We at IndoorCycling.ca believe that we have an obligation to society to stand behind Prime Minister Trudeau and Canada and ensure that all areas of society share this sublime value and mission. When men and minorities are being excluded and treated as non-qualified we must take action and seek justice and equality.
If you are a man and had been treated adversely then we encourage you to file a complaint with the BC Human Rights Tribunal here http://www.bchrt.bc.ca/process/complaint/index.htm . Or the Ontario Human Rights here http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/filing-claims-discrimination
We also encourage you to contact Michelle August and voice your opinion. Request an apology. Then demand equality and diversity. ([email protected])
Here is even a video of Justin Trudeau promoting a 50/50 leadership team
