That’s the message from ‘Miss Fitness’, the new ladies only gym.

Situated on Abbeydale Road opposite Heeley Baths, Miss Fitness is run by five dedicated members of staff including owner and personal trainer Saika.

The owner’s sister Rashda Maroof originally came up with the idea of an all women’s gym when at the Heeley Development Trust attending online and word processing courses. After much research she found that many of the other women from the area wanted a gym they could feel comfortable in.

“The women I spoke to all wanted a place to get fit in a warm, friendly atmosphere without feeling intimidated.” said Rashda, “They had swimming and aerobics but they wanted something more so I came up with the idea of a ladies only gym.”

Miss Fitness offers an environment for all generations of women to workout and become healthier and fitter whether you are a beginner or an advanced user. The gym space is well used and made up of two areas. The first is a cardiovascular room which is fully equipped with machines such as rowers and treadmills just like Ponds Forge. The second room is filled with toning equipment to help you achieve a full body workout.

Saika said, “We really want to reach out to local ladies to make them feel good about themselves. I’m from the area myself so I wanted to give something back to the community”

Prices start from just £3 and free inductions and nutrition advice is available.
