by Natashya Khoo on May 12, 2022
Ladies, raise your hand if you’ve ever been the victim of unwanted looks and gazes at the gym! It’s hard being a lady in a workout space that might not always feel safe. Safety aside, sometimes it’s just nice to have a sweat sesh with the girls- especially if you don the hijab normally.
Luckily, female-friendly gyms have been gaining in popularity and are on the rise in the Klang Valley. So if you’re looking for a new gym, here are 5 women-only gyms near you:
- Feminine Fitness Force
- Lola Fitness Studio
- KOA Fitness
- My Addict Fitness
As one of the pioneers in all-women gyms, Curves is an international franchise that’s been popular in Malaysia for years. Their 2 branches in KL include Bandar Sri Damansara and Wangsa Maju, while their 4 Selangor branches are located at Bandar Utama, Bukit Jelutong, Kota Damansara and Setia Alam.
Their gym system operates around a 30 minute circuit where you come in, go through the circuit and leave. It provides an effective solution for women on the go, and it works!
Address: 3, Lebuh Bandar Utama, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor (Bandar Utama branch)
2. Feminine Fitness Force
For a workout that’s equally as fast-paced as it is high energy, check out the regimens at Feminine Fitness Force. They offer a more HIIT-style workout and offer both in-person and online classes to suit all needs.
The gym is located in Shah Alam. They have mainly group HIIT classes available, and also provide personal training by appointment.
Address: Jalan Bazar U8/99, Bukit Jelutong, 40150 Shah Alam, Selangor
3. Lola Fitness Studio
Dance not your thing? It’s about to be when you sign up for a gym membership at Lola Fitness Studio. They offer everything from Zumba and jazzercise classes to yoga and tabata workouts. We know what you’re thinking: dancing isn’t my thing! We assure you that dance as a workout is fun, light and most importantly, builds up a sweat.
You can sign up for either individual classes or a membership that gives you access to more classes. Classes are available both in-person at their studio in Kota Damansara, or online if that’s more comfortable for you.
Address: G67, 1, Jalan Teknologi 3/9, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
4. KOA Fitness
While many women-only gyms aim to provide a space for the girls to work out together, KOA Fitness takes it one step further & develops workouts specifically for women, by women. Their group fitness classes are designed specifically to strengthen targeted body areas that support women’s everyday movement. What’s even better? Classes are taught by a team of all-women coaches!
Don’t forget to make an appointment with them because you can book a slot by appointment only. Personal training is also something you can opt for with KOA Fitness. Check them out at their branch in Mont Kiara with a free trial!
