The Orange is the New Black actress has joined Blink Fitness’ new initiative for an upcoming campaign. The fitness franchise launched a casting call for a 2017 ad featuring real gym members.

Polanco, along with NFL punter Steve Weatherford, will act as panelists in charge of choosing the gym members through a series of “auditions." The initiative was created as a social media-centric body positivity campaign, aimed to inspire real people in health and fitness. The actress is a great addition to the campaign as she’s always seen owning her curves and speaking out against body acceptance for all.
