Each day, society inundates women with messages that question their worthiness; messages suggesting that they aren't thin enough, attractive enough, strong enough, or young enough.


I've never walked through the world in a larger body but I've had the privilege of gaining insight from hundreds of women who courageously opened up about their experiences. The greatest concern shared was the lack of a supportive, judgment-free space to improve their health.


Introducing Vivify - a fitness community that aims to challenge these societal pressures. Our goal at Vivify is to break down the walls of traditional judgmental gym culture and replace these barriers with a welcoming, supportive space.

We believe that the journey to fitness is personal and different for every individual, and Vivify is committed to being an empowering force behind these unique journeys. Together, we can redefine fitness, and our members' stories of strength, resilience, and commitment will inspire this change.

Bryiana Richardson



My name is BRich, I'm a personal trainer passionate about helping individuals reach their fitness goals. Prior to becoming a personal trainer, I was an elite athlete for many years which earned me a scholarship to compete for the LSU Women's Track Program. Shortly after receiving my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from LSU, I began working at various training facilities around the New Orleans area to further develop my skills.

I have now developed a holistic approach to training, focusing on the whole being rather than isolating areas. My goal during training sessions is to get the mind, body, and spirit involved, when all those areas are functioning together that is when we can be our most elite self. I use my experiences as an athlete and the knowledge that I acquired while studying to help individuals transform their lives and reach their fitness goals.
