APEDF addresses the grave disparities in health and healthcare that result in double to triple the rates of hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other curable conditions for African people in the U.S. compared to the rest of the population.

Since 1994, APEDF has operated a fitness gym in St. Petersburg, Florida. Over the past 23 years, this Gym of Our Own has been the means for African women, men, children and seniors to make lifestyle changes that increase life expectancies and infant mortality rates. We are part of creating a new culture of health and fitness for the African community!

We have offered affordable personal training, Boxerobics, Kids Fit Camp, Line Dancing, Circuit Training, a healthy smoothie bar, massage therapist, chiropractic services, weight lifting exhibitions, health education seminars and newsletters and more.
