Healthworks Fitness is a gym the guys will envy. Spacious, clean, bright, plenty of equipment, friendly staff, lots of class options…what more could a girl want? Not much as it turns out! This small local chain has set the standard for women-only gyms and strives to live up to that standard everyday, from the moment you walk in the door, through the wide range of classes, and right up until you walk out the door feeling more like you‘ve been at a spa instead of a gym. Okay, so it’s not the cheapest deal around, but if you get what you pay for, you’re getting your money’s worth. Careful you don’t over-exercise -- yes, you’ll want to workout at Healthworks that much.
