“I joined KUMA on October 25, 2021 with Foundations classes.  In my mid 60’s my goals were to improve my balance, stamina, strength and get more exercise than my walks. In 2019 I lost my husband and mother to cancer. It had a huge impact on my life and emotionally state. COVID followed forcing isolation and limited physical contact.

I have received so much more than i expected from the KUMA community. My balance, posture and stamina improved very quickly. It has done as much for my mental acuity and sleeping all bonus improvements.

The community of KUMA women are exceptional, they have added to my positive life experiences. The coaches and classes are outstanding. Class routines change everyday keeping it interesting. Coaches provide positive feedback that continuously improves my technique and quality of my life.
I encourage women of all ages and physical conditions to consider joining this community and experiencing its benefits.”

 Cindy B., Member since 2021

It's an amazing and positive place to work out. You're physically challenged and supported to do what feels right for your body. There's no pressure to go a certain speed. Everyone is helpful and really nice, honestly one of my favorite places to be now. If you crave a class structure in a women focused, body positive environment this is the place for you.

I ventured to Kuma Fit in search of women-only fitness classes with encouragement on strength and feeling confident; my expectations were exceeded. Kuma is the most welcoming and comfortable place to move your body; all exercises can be adjusted to level of comfort, and all of the clientele are there for support and encouragement. This is truly a judgement-free, women-empowerment environment. Not to be forgotten, kickboxing itself is therapeutic; No matter what’s going on, when I leave a class I feel at ease, and proud that I have taken care of my body and mental needs. Definitely give this place a try, you won’t regret it.

This is not a is a community of Women pushing each other to succeed in fitness goals and over all wellness. The vibe makes up you want to show up and push your limits...but...plenty of support on those days you run out of steam.

Just wanted to update my review and say I recently hit 250 classes. I am still so thankful I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and checked this place out. The community is amazing, the support from everyone (coaches and peers alike) is insane and I highly recommend you check it out! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I've been going to Kuma since July 2021 and it's been so much fun. The coaches take the time to get to know each and every member and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They offer a wide variety of classes and you leave feeling like a total badass. They focus on empowerment and strength which is refreshing for a fitness studio. I look forward to my classes each week!

Kuma is the inclusive gem I didn't know I needed. I needed to change up my workout routine and challenge myself with something new, so I gave Kuma a shot. The instructors are fantastic (special shout out to Mary and the 6 AM crew), they meet you where you're at and encourage you to dig deeper. Everyone is so welcoming and encouraging, Kuma is truly invested in your success and constantly recognizes milestones and consistency. Love to see their expansion so that more people can enjoy all that Kuma has to offer!

KUMA is an absolute gem! If you’re someone who dreads working out and you are here to see if this place will be different, I can assure you it will be! At KUMA, I feel welcomed, empowered and strong. The coaches are uplifting, energizing and helpful. They truly make the classes special. KUMA is building a community here in Westbrook, and I hope you decide to be a part of it!

I'm so very happy and excited to have found a home here. From first consult, first class and beyond you feel welcomed. This is a wonderful place that helps tap into your strength. Those pesky "I don't know if I can" have become " I don't know if I can stop! Woohoo!" You are your metric here and I bet you'll be surprised how much fun you have.

I've been going to KUMA for just over a year, and it has completely changed my outlook on exercise, fitness, and self image. The workout structure allows you to challenge yourself at your own pace, and the community of women that attend are so amazing! Highly recommend!
