Women succeed at Kathy Henkel Fitness

 Friday, June 21, 2013


Laughter and upbeat music can be heard outside Kathy Henkel Fitness, a women-only exercise studio in New Milford. Upon entering, the laughs don't stop, but the hard work begins.

With so many gyms and fitness studios in the area, the studio tries to be an alternative for women who are intimidated by large gyms. Kathy Henkel, who owns the business, has created an intimate space for women to escape.

Henkel offers a wide range of classes, from kickboxing to belly dancing, but always focuses on weight training no matter the activity.

According to Henkel, weight training is the most important exercise for women. The fitness studio attracts all ages; current clients range from 16 to 61.

"My philosophy is that any woman at any age, size or shape can start exercising and can become as strong as she wants to be," said Henkel.

A group of women from the studio, encouraged by Henkel, recently completed the Tough Mudder Race in New Hampshire. All of the participants who completed the grueling 12-mile obstacle course -- run in five hours -- were over the age of 50.

Several women in the studio said the camaraderie and support that comes with being a member there is what helps them progress in their goals.

Kami Bacon, who has been going to Kathy Henkel Fitness for over a year and a half, attributes all of her success to Henkel's ability to support each member, while also challenging them with new and exciting workouts. Bacon said in each class she feels like she has her own personal trainer, because members are encouraged to work at their own pace and stay within their abilities.

"I enjoy all of the classes because she (Henkel) mixes strength, femininity and laughter," said Bacon. "We continue to surprise ourselves."

With 25 years in the industry, Henkel has taught in many places. She decided to open Kathy Henkel Fitness almost three years ago. She said it's her "amazing members" who keep her excited about coming back every day.

"I want them to leave here feeling stronger than they did yesterday, and when they leave I want them to be so happy that they can't wait to come back," she said.

Kathy Henkel Fitness, 143 West St., New Milford, 203-947-0265,   First class is free for anyone interested in joining the studio
