Laced with elements of yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics, the women-only classes at Aradia Fitness sculpt lean, toned physiques. And though physical fitness is a cornerstone of the studio, it's not the only one. Classes foster certain amount of unrestrained confidence that, as Aradia puts it, “teach[es] women to unapologetically love their body and themselves.” With locations in Canada, Aradia’s certified fitness instructors provide a studio environment that is safe for ladies of all shapes and sizes. No matter the class, the environment at Aradia is always lighthearted, nurturing, and more supportive than a stainless-steel hammock. Ladies may gather their friends and book the studio for a girl's night out, birthday, or bachelorette party.
Yoga. Cardio equipment. Boxing classes. Free weights. At Century Fitness, members don't have to choose just one type of workout. Classes such as Pilates and aqua fit boost endurance and tone muscles, while elliptical machines and treadmills provide cardio exercise. In addition, female members can head to Mademoiselle Spa, a women's-only gym with its own classes and fitness equipment.
Century Physio and Fitness combines the aerobics and group fitness classes of a traditional gym with access to physical therapy, chiropractic, and other rehabilitative treatments. Members burn calories during Zumba classes, or build muscle in boot camps or strength-training sessions with names such as Body Attack. Meanwhile, chiropractors adjust patients' bones and physiotherapists focus on soft tissues, which is a more effective way to remove pain than trying to scare it out by yelling "Boo!"
Mademoiselle Fitness is a women-only gym where classes, equipment, and a friendly atmosphere are designed make wellness easy. (The daycare program helps, too, since toddlers are notoriously bad at sharing the treadmills.) This warm environment is especially evident in group fitness sessions and in one-on-one time with personal trainers or nutrition consultants.
