Pink Fitness for Women became a mission for me only a very short time ago, but I’ve been passionate about exercise all my life. I grew up in the northwest Chicago neighborhood of Edison Park and joined Women’s Workout World in Niles over 30 years ago—and stayed a member through many changes in location and changes in my life—from going to college and grad school to getting married and raising four children.
For the last 7 years, I’ve been commuting to the club in Chicago on Lawrence, and it was worth every minute of the long drive from my home in Park Ridge. I consider myself blessed to have found a home and many dear friends at the club—and the comfortable, caring environment of this last club was the best yet.
The instructors taught not only because they believed in a healthy lifestyle, but also because they had a passion to help other women reach their fitness goals. In addition to the instructors, I made friends over the years from a wide range of cultures and ages: we were united by the common need to support and love one another through thick and thin.
Though I first joined the club to be physically strong and healthy, I stayed because being at the club helped me manage the stress in my life and feel emotionally supported. A good sweat can give a new perspective, laughing throughout a new class can make the rest of the day feel brighter, and connecting with other women can make life’s challenges and problems less overwhelming.
When the announcement came this June that our club on Lawrence was closing, we were devastated—and that’s when I decided to keep the great thing we had going—and going strong! The dedicated and amazing instructors we had at Women’s Workout World shared my vision, and agreed to come along on this journey of health and comradery.
So here I am, starting and running Pink Fitness for Women – a new fitness studio with a very tried and true history of health, fun and friendship.
