If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy the benefits of a full service fitness center in a friendly and non-intimidating environment, then Shape Up Ladies Fitness Center is the place for you.
This unique, ladies-only gym, which opened in January of 2004 in the Sands Point Professional Building on Beach 102 Street, caters to the fitness needs of all its members, from novice to the experienced enthusiast. This custom designed gym reflects the philosophy of owner Susie Lepore who opened the facility in hopes of providing women of all ages and all sizes a comfortable, non-intimidating environment where they can work out and that they would call home. Just as fitness techniques and programs have evolved so has Shape Up and its programs.
“The key to any successful exercise regimen is to keep it new and fresh because workouts should not be tedious and boring,” said Lepore.
Unlike many other women’s only gyms, Shape Up offers cardio machines, custom-designed circuit training equipment, fitness accessories, free weights, on-site experienced gym assistants and a full schedule of group fitness classes. Each Shape Up gym assistant is available to instruct you on proper form and provide encouragement and motivation.
If you prefer, the staff will monitor your progress by measuring and tracking your weight and BMI. Personal training sessions are available at an additional fee, however if you just need guidance in achieving your goals our staff and instructors will help you every step of the way!
All of Shape Up’s group exercise classes are led by certified instructors and encourage new participants. They offer Mat Pilates, Yoga, Body Sculpting, Hip Hop Abs, Cardio Blast and Zumba! Special workshops are scheduled throughout the year in Self Defense and Boot Camp. Free babysitting is available to our members every Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m.-12 Noon.
