With a roster of female-only classes, Women’s Fitness of Boston aims to create an unintimidating environment for women to reach personal fitness goals. Group fitness classes such as salsa-inspired Zumba and Tae Box Flex—a kickboxing class that blends tae kwon do with traditional boxing moves—help ladies sculpt muscles and—when taken as part of a complete regimen—help them win full-contact dance-offs. Along with classes, club members can take advantage of weight-loss programs and personal training, as well as the two tanning booths, which help further beautify newly buff bods.
As natural light streams through the windows, members at Fisique Fitness run on treadmills equipped with their own screens, take to Cybex elliptical machines, and make the rounds on strength-training equipment. In group exercise classes, instructors lead cardio-centric spinning workouts or model mindful breathing during Vinyasa yoga's flow of poses. Dedicated personal trainers take things up a notch, pushing their clients past a plateau or preparing them for the arm-wrestling portion of a corporate job interview. After workouts, members can hit the showers equipped with convenient toiletries or plunk down on one of the lobby’s leather armchairs.
In addition to providing chiropractic treatments and physical-therapy sessions, Fisique Fitness partners with Joint Ventures to offer a menu of spa services that includes massage and acupuncture.
