Get ready to train like an Olympian because Samsara Women's Health Club has just opened an all women's gym in Runaway Bay.
Why the Olympics reference? Well, Samsara Women's Health Club is the only centre on the Gold Coast offering the Artis Technogym equipment used exclusively at the 2016 Rio Olympics athletes village.
Owner Belinda Taylor is very passionate about educating her clients on how to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle rather than just wanting to lose weight quickly (only to put it all back on!). Her health and wellbeing approach provides members with a 24/7 support network that is unlike any other health club on the Coast.
The gym is located smack bang in the middle of Runaway Bay Shopping Village (just across from Woolies) with plenty of free parking available. The main exercise room is modern with an adjacent lounge corner and stretching area. It's simple but offers everything you'd expect from a gym, so it's simply effective.
As a member, you'll receive a comprehensive wellness assessment, including an Inbody Composition Scan, a Cardio and Strength Assessment and a Balance and Alignment Evaluation (motivation here we go)! All your info plus a personalised training program will be loaded onto an electronic techno gym wellness key - your holy grail from then on forward (it's like an electronic personal trainer if you will)! Plug the nifty little key into the Technogym equipment during each workout and it'll show you via the screen exactly what exercise to do and how long for, simple. You can then access and update your data from anywhere using an app. Technology.
If treadmills, stepper and rowing machines aren't your thing though, Samsara also offers unlimited classes including yoga, meditation and boxing.
So if you are sick of overcrowded gyms, pervy looks and an impersonal atmosphere, we feel you! At Samsara Women's Health Club you will join a community of like-minded women who want to improve their health and well-being in a comfortable and encouraging environment.
