Curves is a popular gym franchise that offers 30-minute circuit workouts for women only. Curves may be best for the beginning exerciser, providing an unintimidating environment and easy-to-follow exercises. Lady of America fitness clubs also provide personal training and group fitness in many states, including California, Texas and New York.
In additional to these national chains, there are many local and regional women-only gyms. The potential advantages of a female-only gym include a more-welcoming atmosphere and workouts tailored specifically for women's bodies and fitness needs. Women can ask their doctors to recommend specific gyms or training clubs appropriate for their age and fitness level.
