Why Does This Business Exist?
Women want to exercise, but some do not feel comfortable working out in co-ed big box clubs. We fulfill that need seven days a week.
We provide a boutique, private space where women can:
- Using the steam or sauna
- Get a facial or massage
- Take a yoga class
- Jog on a treadmill
Self care or self sacrifice?
Women of color have shorter life spans due to health ailments. Many of these could be prevented or delayed through fitness. Did you know that regular massages can reduce blood pressure? We offer spa included memberships.
Why We Need Your Support
We’re asking your help as we seek independence. We started as a franchise, and are re-brand-ing. In a few years, we grew our member base from zero to thousands. Our potential is limited in our current state. Shortly after we opened, our parent company was sold.
The new owners gave us the option of staying with them, but we would have to match their pricing. That would mean a rate increase and less flexibility. We want our gym and spa to stay accessible. We also want to continue to provide topical workshops that meet our members where they are. Diabetes Prevention, Mental Health Awareness, and more.
We are in limbo. We can’t buy ad words under our franchise title. Most of our business comes from glowing referrals. Once we change our name, we will control our destiny.
We are locating in a mall in an urban area on Crenshaw Blvd. We are the only gym and day spa for miles. We are proud to serve a diverse membership base. Race. Size. Income. Ability.
In the past decade, gym membership has grown 36% across the country. Every month, we add 40 to 60 new members.
