hEaLth & fitnEss Ladies-only gym opens in Essex

Ent repreneur Shamir Choudhury has invested more than £80,000 in build- ing a brand new ladies-only health club in Goodmayes, Essex, which he has kitted out with Star Trac equipment. Choudhury, founder and

owner of Energise Health Club, chose to launch a ladies club aſter identifying a need for a health club designed spe- cifically for women. Busy gyms are oſten seen

Te gym has been designed to appeal to females of all fitness goals

as off-putting for women, especially when working out with people with different fitness goals – an issue Shamir wanted to tackle. “Working out in a comfortable environment

is a really important factor for a lot of women, especially if they’re insecure about their bodies or are new to exercise and are not sure what to expect,” he said. “Tere are so many barriers to women exercising, so I wanted to strip all that

back and create an inviting, welcoming space where they want to spend time working out.” Star Trac equipment at the club includes

pieces from the S-Series cardio range and dual and single station pieces from the Instinct strength range. Creche facilities are available on site, as well as personal training, nutritional advice, health checks and body massage ther- apy. Details:
