The Best Women’s Only Gyms in London

If you’re looking for a women’s only gyms, London is definitely calling…

When it comes to enjoying a healthier lifestyle, choosing the gym is one of the best options out there. You make your way through the doors and right away it feels good!

You’re becoming accountable and you’re making it happen, noticing the difference that can have week on week is one of the best feelings in the world…

You might also be meeting new people, pushing your boundaries and discovering qualities you never knew you had, all while feeling better physically and mentally.

There’s no possible downside to it… is there?

If you identify as female, then yes, sometimes there is, for many there can be barriers and just making your way through those doors can be a challenge enough to put many women off.

According to a study conducted by Sport England, a significant percentage of ladies prefer a women’s only gym as a place to enjoy fitness and to try and set those barriers aside.

The things that can hold women back from getting fit are as diverse and unique as the women who use our gyms. They can range from fears about being judged and wearing sportswear in front of the opposite sex to simply being unable to wear fitness clothing in a mixed gender space because of their religion or being seen as masculine.

All these concerns are valid and they really matter, they have a real impact in stopping women going to the gym to exercise in the same way their male counterparts might take for granted.

But a solution is at hand and London is leading the way.

Across the capital, and the UK as a whole, women’s only gyms are growing in popularity; many mixed gender gyms are reacting to that fact too and creating safer same sex spaces and designated times for their female members.

If you are a woman, looking to work out in an environment that gives you comfort as well as confidence, here is just a taste of what’s out there in the capital:

The Bridge, Southwark Bridge Road

Ultra modern, sleek and incredibly well equipped, The Bridge is a ladies only gym owned and managed by the YWCA, a charitable organisation aimed at making a difference to the lives of the women who live and work in London.

The Bridge is an excellent advertisement for those very things…

It is an ideal place to meet up with friends or co-workers and the atmosphere is one of laid back relaxation. Wellbeing treatments and massage are available at The Bridge alongside a state of the art gym kitted out by Pulse Fitness including cardio, resistance machines and the option for personal training and a great fitness studio too.
