Let's Get In Formation: Women-Only Gyms To Hit Up In Mumbai

Going to the gym is often hard enough without the pressure of looking good there too. If you find yourself slightly conscious at unisex fitness studios and would be more comfortable working out with women only, get going at the following gyms. These are especially for women, and some even are equipped with pre-natal, post-natal and self-defence classes.

Xercise, Vile Parle

Looking for more than just a gym? Xercise at Vile Parle is one of more popular fitness centres for women only, with very friendly and competent trainers. Go there for a comprehensive gym workout (with a mix of classes), or targeted individual plans such as TAG (thighs, abs, gluts), power yoga, holistic yoga or zumba. A monthly charge for solely a gym workout is for INR 1760 on Fitternity, and a fusion workout with power yoga for INR 4140 (discounted).
