From time to time it's good to know when you've done something right! In this week's post we let guest blogger, Natasha Nixon, sing our praises...or more to the point the praises of women's fitness centers in general as opposed to co-ed facilities.
Because we have added to our chosen responsibilities of wife and mother, roles as career, sport and many other activities, we need to use a women’s fitness center to give us the necessary balance. That being said we don't just want any old "gym," we want programs, equipment and training programs just for us. We need things that will help us a women to be in better shape on a number of levels, including mind, body and spirit.
I see the commitment to a health club for women as being a special one. The certified personal trainers know our physiological composition and understand the regimens we need to be productive at work, at home and at play. They understand that means being just physically strong, but emotionally strong and they get the connection between the two for women.
We are challenged to meet the diverse venues that our choices require. But, in our hectic lives a women’s fitness center provides the therapy that we need to feel better, look better and to manage our many responsibilities. It is not just statistics that bears out the value of joining a health club for women. It really is common sense.
Men did get one thing right. To realize their full potential in business, sport, career and family, men must be fit...but the need for fitness is genderless. Remember that anything they can do, we can do better...much better. :)
We want our Pilates classes. We love our yoga classes. We embrace training regimens that specifically address mind, body and soul. We want to meditate. We want to nurture. We want to succeed. We believe this life is a truly magnificent gift that we should do our best to respect and prolong.
Our sane time is our fitness time! Women’s fitness is such a rewarding lifestyle choice. We learn at a health club made just for us what lifestyle choices are prudent and which habits we should correct. All the while, our trainers and other female members are right there with us.
At a health club for women, we are never alone. Lasting friendships evolve because we are pursuing the same goal. Often, the relationships at our club help us in other aspects of our lives.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Eat, Pray and Love was a highly acclaimed bestseller. But in truth, it lacked the very necessary whole life ingredient we call fitness. Here is my message to you as a woman who has tried and failed many, many times on her fitness and weight loss journey. If you want to perform your best, feel terrific and be strong enough to deal with the rigors of the day, don’t wait any longer...join a women’s-only fitness center right away.
