LOOKING FOR WOMENS FITNESS IN CHICO? KAIA FIT CAN HELP! 

It’s always the right time to invest in yourself. At Kaia FIT, we help our clients look after their health and fitness in a friendly, supportive environment that’s never intimidating but always challenging. Our womens fitness programs focus on helping you achieve your physical and mental goals. With cardio workout classes, barre classes, dance fitness classes, and more, we offer something for everyone regardless of fitness level. We also arrange special womens boot camps three times a year for an extra challenge. 

What makes Kaia FIT different from other gyms? We focus on the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. We believe in the power of working out with other women who share similar goals. There’s nothing like the encouragement and accountability you’ll get from this group of health-minded ladies when it comes to being the best you can be. It’s this emphasis on creating a group atmosphere that helps Kaia girls reach and exceed their goals on a daily basis. Whether you are looking for outdoor workout classes, cross-training classes, yoga classes, or complete fitness programs for women including nutrition support, Kaia FIT is for you. 

HOW TO STAY IN SHAPE IN CHICO

When you aren’t at the gym, Chico is a great place to keep moving and stay in shape. The next time you’re trying to decide how to spend a day off, consider one of these healthy, fitness-focused local activities. 

  • Bidwell Park. From the beauty and serenity of trees and grass to lots of opportunities for exercise, Bidwell Park is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon. Pack a healthy picnic and go for the swimming, hiking, or bicycling. 
  • Chico Certified Farmers’ Market. At the Chico Certified Farmers’ Markets, shoppers can find an unlimited selection of fresh picked, locally grown fruit, vegetables, nuts, honey, olive oil, rice, grass fed beef, lamb, ham, chicken, pork, eggs, herbs, flowers, plants, fresh baked artisan breads, handcrafts and prepared foods.
  • Butte Creek Ecological Preserve. This nearby preserve is an ideal place to go for a hike. Wear good hiking shoes as the terrain can be rough – but that just makes it an even better way to get your workout done. There’s also a variety of wildlife to enjoy. This is one for the adventurous at heart. 

MAKE KAIA FIT YOUR NEXT STOP

Owner/Coach

I first tried Kaia FIT 2013 when one of my bridesmaids (Coach Heidi) and I tried Kaia for a boot camp before my wedding. We got up and went at 5:30 am every day for the 5 weeks and loved it. I didn’t join Kaia right away, I still had a membership at another gym, but a year after my wedding and that other gym membership had expired I had stopped exercising and was looking to move more again. I ran into the owner of Kaia FIT at a health fair and remembered how much I loved the work outs and the community.  I rejoined Kaia FIT Chico in November of 2014 and have been a Kaia girl ever since.  I have always been active, have pretty much always belonged to a gym, play volleyball dabble in running and I have never worked out as hard or as consistently as I do at Kaia.  In the summer of 2018 the owner of Kaia said she was looking for a buyer for Kaia. I was commuting to Red Bluff to help run our family business there, I had always wanted to own by own business in Chico and was afraid someone would buy it that wasn’t a part of our community. I became a group fitness instructor and started coaching at Kaia FIT in May of 2019 and July 1st of 2019 I took ownership of Kaia FIT Chico.

My love for Kaia started when I tried my first Kaia class, where the coaches supported me and the fitness experience challenged me. Now, as a coach, my passion has grown. Most often the highlight of my day is coming to Kaia, being with our Kaia women, and sharing my excitement for the program. I love Kaia because it incorporates not only fitness and nutrition, but also the body-mind experience, the motivation of having a team of women for support, and having fun! There are too many foods that I love! Grilled veggies, green smoothies, fresh basil, curry chickpeas, almond butter – the list could go on and go! My favorite part of spending time outdoors is just being outside, in the park, on the trail, and enjoying the scenery and peacefulness. I enjoy running, hiking, backpacking, fishing, but most importantly I love having my dog with me!

Certified ACE Coach I have been a Kaia coach since April of 2015. Before joining the Kaia coaching team I had been working out with Kaia since January 2014. I love Kaia because it is such a welcoming, encouraging environment. I had never enjoyed working out before Kaia FIT The warm, welcome, and caring environment hooked me. I love that I became part of a fitness family. I love food, all types. I will try just about anything; however my favorite food is pretty simple. I love apples with almond butter and, my guilty pleasure, French fries, in moderation of course. When spending time outdoors, I love to rock climb and go cross country skiing.

Research has shown that even 20 to 30 minutes of running (two to three times per week) is enough to help you lose or maintain weight and improve many other important health markers, i.e. your cholesterol, blood pressure and insulin response.

Don’t be intimidated by the Kaia Run program name, each class will have walkers, joggers and runners. Keep in mind that the first mile is the hardest mile you will ever run. Once you get off the starting block, things only get easier. All you have to do is be patient and disciplined in your training, and that is where Kaia

POWER YOGA

Kaia Yoga combines mind and body with a power yoga and core-strengthening weekly workout with Pilates-style techniques. We focus on balance, strength, and cardiovascular fitness through stretching, strength training and dynamic movement to improve overall fitness levels.

By creating long, lean muscles, Yoga promotes improved coordination, greater flexibility and a fuller range of motion, with a strong body that’s less prone to injury. Yoga keeps the mind centered and reduces stress through positive thoughts and a sense of mindfulness, which also inspires mental strength and confidence.

Yin Yoga, or restorative yoga, is a quiet contemplative practice. It targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body. Poses are held for 1 minute or more and transitions between poses are gentle and slow. This class is an excellent compliment to our other classes, provides dedicated stretching, and is known to reduce stress and anxiety.
