Shapes Fitness for Women

Shapes Fitness For Women is the premier women’s only fitness center devoted completely to the needs of women. We were founded on the idea that women want to exercise in facilities that were tailored to their needs. Our franchisees and staff are comprised of caring experts who are highly motivated to help our members get the results they want and achieve a higher level of overall wellness.

We work with our members to help them achieve their personal health and fitness goals.

For over 26 years, Shapes facilities have always been state-of-the-art, providing members the best in the industry in terms of equipment, personal training, group fitness classes and small group training.

“We started Shapes with the goal to have our team help women who wanted a place of their own. We are 100% focused on the needs of our members, who just happen to be all women. And this is the difference between us and other fitness centers.”
