Why offer women's only fitness?

Women's only fitness is a targeted needs-based program designed to ensure equitable participation in physical activity. The program is aligned with University policies, guidelines and statements on equity, diversity and excellence.

While women currently constitute over half of UTM’s student body, they continue to be under-represented in most forms of physical activity. Our usage statistics show that while female participation in particular facility spaces is low during regular hours, it increases notably during time scheduled for women only. Women's only classes are therefore one of several strategies implemented by the Department to optimize participation, reduce barriers to being active, and foster inclusivity across culture, religion and ability level.

The Department of Recreation, Athletics & Wellness strives to create and maintain a welcoming, inclusive, atmosphere for all students and members in all our facilities. Women's only classes reflect the mission of the Department and its commitment to the provision of opportunity.
