UNIVERSAL CITY — A desire to provide ladies with a favorable environment to train among other women motivated Adrienne Dominic to open a facility offering a total-body workout.

This past spring, Shape Up! Fitness for Women, 118 W. Byrd Blvd., Suite 104, debuted as a home for females to improve their health while being social, Dominic said.

“Shape Up! is a place where women can come and feel comfortable exercising just among women and not being intimidated by the large machines that they encounter at a large gym,” Dominic said.

Available classes include Zumba dance, yoga and instructor-led cardio/stretching/balance routines, which gets the heart rate up and burns calories. Weight-training machines, hand weights and recumbent exercise bikes complement the sessions.

The fitness center also provides information on healthy eating habits, and patrons get together once a month for a birthday luncheon of members.

“This is a place where 30- to 90-year-old women can come in and have an effective, safe workout,” Dominic said.

The owner also noted she chose the location because communities in the area are growing.

Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3:30-7 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 7 a.m. to noon and 3:30-7 p.m. Thursday, 7 a.m. to noon and 3:30-6 p.m. Friday and 8-11 a.m. Saturday.
