Are you super intimidated when you step foot in a gym? Perhaps, women-only gyms are what you need. Currently, they’re trending on TikTok under #WomensOnlyGym, and while they may not be anything new, they’re worth giving a try. Here are five reasons why they may be perfect for you.

Less Intimidation

Do we really have to tell you how intimidating gyms can be. Regardless of if you’re a beginner or a gym fanatic, gyms can be overwhelming, especially the lifting area, which is full of extremely muscular men. At women-only gyms, you’ll only be exercising with females.

Women-Focused Ammeneties

Women-only gyms have more equipment that is focused on women, with the female mind and body being the priority.

Privacy and Intimacy

Not only are women-only gyms usually smaller, but they’re also quieter and more intimate. You can have personal training sessions with women and if there are men working at the gym, the hours they are working are often posted.

Networking

Believe it or not, gyms are a great way to socialize and meet new people who are like-minded.

Holistic Approach

Many women-only gyms have a holistic approach to being healthy and fit. Mental health, exercising, and nutrition are equally important aspects of leading a healthy life.
