Fitness guru and creator of “Insanity” workout program Shaun Blokker, better known as Shaun T, has signed on to become the newest Ambassador of Athlete Ally, a leading organization working to raise awareness about and end homophobia in sports.

Blokker’s athletic and choreographic talents led him to success in the fitness training industry, and he produced highly successful programs like “Hip Hop Abs” and “Insanity”. He recently stepped forward as a member of the LGBT community, and joining Athlete Ally affirms his commitment to making the world of sports and athletics as inclusive as possible.

I worked with Shaun T as a dancer in 2005 in Los Angeles in the Reprise Series production of “Applause” right before his huge video fitness career took off.  He’s a great guy, and I’m glad to see him make good use of the celebrity that’s come his way.  Bravo, Shaun T.
