The ambience of a classic gym can be an overwhelming and potentially intimidating place, especially for someone who has just started their fitness journey.
In particular, women can be affected even more than men by the “gender gap”.
This real syndrome goes beyond the feeling of simply feeling self-conscious because these negative connotations can help to make women not want to train regularly or maybe not at all, which can have a detrimental effect on the physical form and overall health of the female population.
Google search for “women’s gyms” has quadrupled in the last 12 months, showing that perhaps now more than ever there is a demand for an environment where women can come together to create a community to motivate and inspire each other.
The need for gyms for women only
Women experience a number of significant changes throughout their lives, including pre/postnatal, menstruation, menopause, and have a greater number of hormones changing on a daily basis.
We think it is vital that women have a space to be able to support the growth of their knowledge of how their bodies work so that their health and general fitness can thrive quietly.
When it comes to strength training and weight lifting, for example, the gender gap increases even more significantly.
Creating a space where women feel safe and empowered when training promotes inclusivity and allows them to reach a wider group of women whose previous barrier to entry may have been a sense of intimidation.
Of course, women should feel entitled to participate in any area of exercise they desire.
After all, a comprehensive approach to exercise is the most healthy and effective.
The importance of a space for the exercise of women only
Health, fitness, and mental well-being aren’t just about how fast you can run, how much you can lift, or how much weight you can lose.
It is about setting realistic goals around what you want to achieve within your body, mind and overall health and working to maintain these healthy habits.
The gender gap in physical activity is well documented, with women around the world less likely than men to meet internationally recognised health guidelines on physical activity.
The World Health Organization (WHO) stresses the importance of providing safe and accessible physical leisure activities for women.
Research shows that making sure you exercise regularly can help reduce the risk of developing many diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and can offer multiple mental health benefits, including stress management.
Studies have also shown that only 30 minutes of exercise per day can provide a range of immune enhancement benefits and improve the way our body responds to potential vaccines, which is obviously more relevant now than ever.
Advantages of a women-only gym
60% of women avoid the gym for anxiety to be judged. And this is just one of the shocking statistics from a survey that was conducted last year.
Here are some of the advantages of training in a women’s gym.
Being intimidated by big, bulky men in the gym (even if they are all as good as bread and very kind) can be a big obstacle when it comes to achieving your fitness goals.
In a women-only gym, there is far less sense of judgment and less intimidation from your training partners.
Being part of a women-only gym means that there are more equipment and classes suitable for women and the female body. While men generally prefer to train with dumbbells and isotonic machines, women can also use different fitness classes in such centers where they can participate in groups.
This means for example more yoga, pilates, zumba, stretching classes, in addition to weight training.
More intimacy and privacy
Women-only gyms are generally less noisy and more welcoming than most mixed gyms. A lot of gyms are huge with too many machines and sometimes you might feel lost knowing where to start.
A female gym is usually smaller, more intimate and often offers personal training section that will help you start your path calmly.
Making new friends
In addition to being a great place to let off steam and get a new and improved fantastic shape, a women’s-only gym is the perfect place to make new friends.
Professional solidarity approach
In addition to fitness you often also need nutrition and psychological support. Being surrounded by female professionals will help you communicate more effectively and make you understand better.

Women are excellent athletes
Against all expectations of years and years of success in different competitive fields, they have allowed to say that the female human body is extraordinarily versatile and genetically predisposed to train with overloads even in an intensive way.
What everyone is talking about today is part of our culture for millennia. Amazons, warriors, leaders, heroines. The story is full of these extraordinary actresses of past life, who competed on equal terms with the best leaders to defend and protect their lives.
Everything starts from far away
Unlike other parts of Greece, at Sparta unmarried girls regularly participated in sports activities.
The famous spartan exercise regime for girls is designed to make them “all fit like their brothers”.
In his Constitution of the Spartans, Xenophon reports that Lycurgus required women to practice as much as men, and to this end instituted athletic competitions for women.
Early sources report that the Spartan girls practiced running and wrestling; later texts also mention the javelin and discus throwing, boxing and pankration and also learned to ride.
In short , women have always been very skilled athletes and today KingsBox wants to celebrate them with a selection of training equipment dedicated to them.
