The business was opened eight months ago by Miriam and Eli Molina, and it makes women feel comfortable because they are only working out with other women.
Miriam tells her clients, "The only guy you are going to see is my husband." Miriam and Eli also split apart the aspects. She takes care of health, he takes care of motivation.
So in that same spirit, Miriam will be arranging a week long series of free events for National Women's Health Week that runs from May 9 through the 15, which include dental screenings, infant massage, nutrition, and series of lectures that have to do with the mind, cancer support groups and a presentation by the Coalition Against Tobacco.
The gym caters to women and kids. Due to the alarmingly increasing obesity rate among children, the gym allows them to work out with their mothers for a half-rate membership. The offer is for children who are 10 to 17 years old.
In addition to the series going on for the week of women's health, monthly workshops are always available at the gym.
"We have free seminars on a month to month basis," said Miriam. "There are seminars on financing, nutrition, breast cancer awareness. There's something for everyone."
Miriam and her husband also get feedback form their clients on the type of seminars they'd like to attend as well, or anything of interest.
"I do things that cater to their needs," said Miriam. "The community is so great to give of their time."
In addition to running Ladies Workout Express, Miriam also holds a temp job as an administrative assistant; she's a full-time mother of three, and a junior at St. Peter's College majoring in business. Still, with all the things she has to do, she finds a balance, and continues her own workout regiment for her own health.
"Thirty minutes that you do something for yourself, you'll be better for your family," said Miriam. "I started this for my health, and there are so many good women out here in the area."
"I'm truly blessed to have her in my life," said Eli of his wife. "When I married her in 1984, I hit the jackpot."
The seminars are free for anyone who wants to attend, but interested parties should call and have them save a space.
