What the PumpUp Community is About

Positivity

Positivity is core to the PumpUp community. If you have something negative to say, don’t say it. If you have constructive criticism to share with a member of the community, be sure to frame it in a positive light.

Safety and Comfort

Every member of the community should feel comfortable and safe to share any content related to their health and wellness journey. They will be able to do so without ridicule, hate, harassment, or discouragement.

Support and Motivation

PumpUp is a place where anyone can receive support and encouragement, especially those who may not have access to a support network in the physical world. It’s a community where members can proactively motivate each other to live healthy lifestyles.

Openness and Inclusivity

PumpUp is an inclusive environment where anyone of any gender, race, creed, religion, or age (13 years and over), can feel comfortable to share around their health, fitness, or wellness.

Respectful and Judgement-Free

Each person has their own unique challenges — be they physical or mental. The PumpUp community is a positive and supportive space, free of judgement. It is imperative to respect each member and how they choose to approach their wellness journey. If you don’t have something kind or constructive to say, don’t say it at all.

What THe PUMPUP COMMUNITY ISN'T ABOUT

We do not tolerate the following:

Bullying and Threats

It is not acceptable nor appropriate to persecute or harass others in our community. PumpUp strives to protects its members from vulnerability, especially as they share their own personal struggles.  Bullying of any kind hurts, affecting every aspect of a person’s life. It is not acceptable or tolerated on our community.

Encouragement of Self-Harm

Don’t post content or comments that encourage self-harm. This includes behaviour related to self-injury, eating disorders, and neglecting one’s physical or emotional needs. PumpUp should be a source of support for people struggling with these conditions. Constructive dialogue about it can be very helpful, but glorifying it is not helpful nor tolerated.

Pornography

PumpUp has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content. We respect each members’ right to share content of personal importance related directly to their health and wellness journey, but we impose limitations on the display of nudity for safety reasons and to respect members of all ages on our community.

Hate Speech

PumpUp does not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or medical condition.

Spam

Keep your interactions on PumpUp genuine. Our community is about sharing content around living a healthy life and positively encouraging others. Content, photos, or comments that fall outside these boundaries are not acceptable. We do not tolerate commercial spam or repetitive comments and posts that drive members onto another website or app.

 

PumpUp is a special community that has inspired and improved the lives of countless people across the planet. We actively take action to ensure it remains this way.
