Body Exchange is Canada’s only fitness and lifestyle boot camp dedicated exclusively to plus-sized women.
Oh yeah, no dudes either.
Founder and CEO Louise Green to offer what she calls a ‘safe haven’ for the bigger ladies started the Vancouver-based chain of gyms.
Women interested in joining are first screened over the phone and can only join the club if invited afterward. Body Exchange policies have created a bit of controversy after gaining some mainstream media attention regarding human rights, discrimination and whatnot.
But so far their program seems to be working. There are currently four Body Exchange locations in Vancouver including downtown, North Van, Burnaby, and Maple Ridge with one coming to Langley in August.
Not a bad start for a gym that was just founded in 2008.
