HBCU Fisk University’s first gym practice goes viral on TikTok


A TikTok video of an HBCU school hosting its first-ever women’s gymnastics practice has gone viral, garnering nearly 800,000 views and over 200,000 likes.

Fisk University, located in Nashville, Tennessee, announced in February the formation of its first gymnastics team, making the university the first HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) to have an intercollegiate women’s gymnastics program. . Last week, the team enjoyed their first formal workout, which was captured on video by team member Zyia Coleman, who goes by the username @zyiaalexys on TikTok.

“First gym workout in Fisk University history,” Zyia wrote on her TikTok video.

The nearly minute-long video showed athletes performing balance beam exercises and a variety of flips.
