NOTE: See update below
A new gym targeted to women is opening this week on the same block as Bell’s Bikes, just down the street from Cheesesteak Central. Women’s Fitness Solutions opened at 1324 E Passyunk Ave in what used to be a martial arts studio. They’re offering zumba classes and an untold amount of other workout techniques intended to get all the ladies in shape.

We use the phrase “untold” because there is hardly any information available anywhere about this place, which according to a schedule posted on the door, has already started classes. But there’s no website that we could find, and not a lot of info on the Facebook page, except for this lone picture, which makes it seem like it could be all right.
|Not bad, right?|
We also left two phone messages and tried stopping by during the posted business hours. Once, the door was locked and another time, we didn’t head up to the second floor space because the stairs looked like they were still wet after being freshly stained.
UPDATE: The director of the center got back to us with some more information and explained the reason he hadn’t gotten back to us. He said they were having problems getting messages and only knew we called after reading this post. He also said they didn’t officially open until the 28th but had been just offering free classes as promotions.
Hours are M-T-W-TH from 9am to 9pm, Friday 9am to 7pm, Saturday 9am to 5pm, closed Sunday.
