Health and Exercise Designed for Women

The Center for Women’s Fitness is committed to the education and empowerment of women through every stage of their lives

Our women’s fitness programs are designed for women from the ground up. We teach from the female anatomy and physiology, the feminine psyche and include all the subtle bodies – the emotional, mental and spiritual that have an impact on the physical. We understand the different needs of the woman as she exercises through pregnancy, postnatal, menopause and the later years of her life and how these changes affect her women’s fitness needs and goals.

Inspiring Women to Change

The Center for Women’s Fitness was founded by Carolyne Anthony as a way to get fit and active. The stories of gym intimidation and the challenges of staying fit while pregnant inspired the creation of the Prenatal Pilates program that has grown into the international teacher training program we offer today. Today, we offer programs and teacher trainings around the world that help women balance their physical, emotional and spiritual bodies through all stages of life.

What Our Clients Are Saying about Us:

Already, I have used the cueing methods on 2 clients

“It was a privilege to have taken the course with you. Already, I have used the cueing methods on 2 clients. I have also taken the initiative to ask one of my post-natal client today about her birthing journey and she was so open and excited to share with me. It struck me that usually nobody asks them about it as more attention is focused on the baby.”

Gemahl, Singapore

THANK YOU for this awe inspiring experience
