Women have always played a strong role in moving the fitness industry forward (we’re looking at you Jane Fonda), and today more than 75 percent of all fitness professionals and leaders are female. Let’s face it – women are winning at fitness right now.

With a staff comprised of 66 percent women and a leadership team that is 75 percent women, Castle Hill Fitness, a locally owned boutique gym with two locations, has been celebrating women through all phases of life since 2002.  

“We have consciously changed our policies and created programs to support our female staff and clients that are moving through life changes,” Brand Manager, Amy Rogers says. “From getting through college, to getting married and having babies, from parenting babies into teens, and navigating aging parents, we provide a stable, constant sanctuary for the women of our clubs.”

Here are five programs and benefits women (and men!) can find at Castle Hill Fitness: 

  1. Flexible Memberships – Castle Hill Fitness offers membership terms that are month-to-month — when life gets busy you can cancel easily and won’t be charged another sign-up fee when you rejoin. Family memberships are discounted 20 percent.
  2. À la carte passes – You don’t need to be a member in order to take advantage of the facility or classes.
  3. Childcare – The 360 location offers childcare weekday mornings 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m., and now M/W evenings and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m
  4. Mama Strong – This class at the 360 location is offered three times a week for moms and non-crawling babies. The format ensures that even with little ones you can focus on your health.
  5. Ladies Early Bird Boot Camp –  Six a.m. is much brighter with this group of women. Sign up for one, two or three days of workouts in a supportive and body-positive environment.
