Shapes Fitness for Women is more than a gym, according to staffers. It’s a place where women become part of a community.
“We’re (here) to get to know everybody who walks in the door, know their first name, what’s going on in their life, and help them get healthy and have more joy,” said Jeff Judson, franchise co-owner.
The female-focused exercise center is at 115 N. Loop 1604 East, Suite 2104; two sister locations are in the works.
Founded in 1990, the company was conceived for women to live healthier lives, officials said.
“Shapes is a great place for women to come together and exercise, free from distractions, and with lots of caring trainers and staff to help women achieve their goals,” said Margaret Judson, who co-owns the company with her husband.
Offerings include cardio equipment with integrated technology, a 30-minute express workout, personal training, group classes, infrared sauna and elite training, with four to eight people.
The certified trainers can address members’ fitness and nutrition needs based on a monthly health assessment.
Group classes range from cardio, strength and mind/body, featuring Zumba, high-intensity interval training and yoga, with coed boot-camp opportunities the second Saturday of each month.
“Women enjoy working out together,” Judson said. “Over the years, I’ve observed how community is built when women gather, and exercise is no different. Women genuinely enjoy one another and being able to get fit at the same time is a bonus.”
As moms work out, their kids — from 6 months to 12 years old — can frolic in a play area.
Month-to-month memberships are available with an annual fee. Before committing to join, potential members can get a free, three-day VIP pass.
Hours are 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
