Gyms long have been associated with guys bulking up to Schwarzenegger-esque proportions, but don’t be fooled. Women can — and absolutely should — exercise, too. You don’t need to bulk up to be powerful, and at Femme Fitness, your women’s only gym in Hackensack, we welcome you to join us in developing your own, personalized physical fitness program that helps you take charge of your health and wellness.women's only gym

Why women need to get their sweat on

With juggling careers, parenting, and other home responsibilities, women know a thing or two about stress. That’s not good news, especially considering that stress is associated with a host of health problems, including increased risk of high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, and diabetes. Women also are more at risk for certain diseases than men, such as heart disease and osteoarthritis.

Exercise is not a cure-all by any means, but research shows that it effectively addresses all of those health concerns. Working out is a fabulous way to maintain — and improve — your overall physical health and elevate your mood. And with women still providing the majority of child care, tackling a workout sets a great example of self-care for kids, too.

From the psychological perspective, there’s also a huge benefit to getting out of your comfort zone and boosting your self-confidence with greater endurance and strength and smashing your own preconceptions of what you thought you could do!

Get fit with a program designed to fit you

Because Femme Fitness respects just how individual every woman is, we offer numerous options — like cardio training (with ellipticals, treadmills, and bikes), free weights, small group training, and more — enabling you to design an ideal fitness program and work at your own pace.
