After months of virtual fitness classes, Nazareth’s all-women gym is now open for indoor and outdoor workouts.

Sweat Like a Girl’s owner, Heather Gidusko, was overwhelmed with keeping her business afloat during the pandemic. Early on, she decided to offer free virtual workouts to help with physical and mental health. She says she knew women, including herself, were struggling.

“Two weeks ago, I started doing outdoor workouts at parks, which was amazing because I could finally see people face to face and have that interaction that many of us were craving. And now I’m finally back at my brick and mortar location, Sweat Like A Girl, and we are having classes outside.”

Fitness Instructor Angie Barzin was excited to be back in action and sweating alongside  “the girls.” 

“We did what we needed to do to stay healthy to keep everybody else around us healthy. But I think there’s also an opponent where you’re just sort of existing and it’s not really living after a while. And this kind of like sparks you and brings you back and makes you feel like you’re alive again,” said Barzin.

Classes are open to women, young or old, and the first session is free.
