& Fitness for Women

We have one mission – to create a space for women to feel empowered and strong.

Finally, a gym you will LOVE!

We focus on how movement makes you FEEL strong.

As a women’s-only gym, we are passionate about promoting a positive relationship with movement by rejecting the standard language and measurements of success that can lead to body objectification. 

We take pride in our friendly coaches and supportive members who create a unique and uplifting environment that sets us apart from other gyms.


Working out with other women led by one of our friendly coaches feels amazing. Our classes are a great way to connect with your community and feel comfortable when trying new moves.


Our studio is designed for every woman! Whether you’re on the bags or just hanging out, you will feel welcome and celebrated for your power from day one. 


Our classes are designed to make you feel empowered and our coaches are here to inspire you and help you stay focused on feeling mentally and physically strong!

I am absolutely loving my kickboxing classes at KUMA!! It’s a great workout without feeling like a workout! I am feeling stronger and more empowered with each class….and it’s a lot of fun! Everyone at KUMA is supportive and kind, and they made me feel comfortable from the start!

I’ve only been to two beginner classes so far but I was surprised how much I am enjoying myself while getting a great workout. The atmosphere and “vibe” is warm, friendly and low barrier. Very welcoming. Had lots of laughs and made friends the first night. I can’t wait for the next session!

I could not recommend KUMA any more. The environment is warm and welcoming and the workout is whatever you want to put into it without judgement. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level is, this place is for people who want to have fun while staying or getting healthy.

You feel it as soon as you walk in the door: this is a place of support, true non judgement, community and empowerment. A lot of places can say/try to sell you a lot of things (and I've tried more than a few of them), but KUMA is the genuine article. The coaches are phenomenal; they're supportive and 100% mentally and emotionally present before, during and after class if you've got something on your mind or have questions about a combo or technique. The classes are the stuff workout dreams are made of; the combos change, new techniques are introduced with careful & mindful instruction, and the music? SOLID JAMS. The people working out alongside you? They're super friendly, welcoming and offer both emotionally intelligent and practical advice for newbies. I'd been hunting and hoping to find a place like this, and it's worth every penny. Even if you've had the love of movement kicked or beaten out of you --- give KUMA a chance to help you rediscover it. It's quite literally the dojo of my dreams. <3 <3 <3
