Want to Run Your First 5K? Join the Get In Shape For Women Team


Have you ever dreamt of completing a 5K but didn't think you could do it? Want to get in shape, but can’t seem to get motivated to go to the gym? Do you feel even more sluggish after being stuck inside during this snowy winter? Then dare to challenge yourself out of your comfort zone and run or walk with us. Get In Shape For Women is currently forming our first-ever team for the St. Bart’s Annual 5K Run/Walk to be held on March 22 in Scotch Plains.

Get In Shape For Women is a private, upscale ladies-only fitness studio located in the heart of downtown Scotch Plains. Our highly skilled trainers combine cardio and weight training with personalized and sustainable nutrition support for a total body transformation.

Ever “belong” to a gym that you rarely visit? Our appointment-based sessions provide what so many other fitness centers can’t – accountability. Our experienced trainers hold you accountable by helping you set a measurable and achievable goal, scheduling your appointments and tracking your progress.

Workouts are done in small group (1 to 4 women at a time), one-hour sessions, delivering all the benefits of a personal trainer without the high price tag. Each session is equally split between weight training and cardio, where women exercise under the watchful eye of a personal trainer. Additionally, nutritional support is provided to keep you on track at home. And at Get In Shape For Women, “belonging” actual means something: camaraderie, trust and motivation from other women participating in the program provide invaluable support to learn new habits, stay on track and reach your goals.  

Come for a Complimentary Assessment Session now to hit the starting line as a team in our first 5K. All levels of runners and walkers can enter the race, so don’t let fear hold you back. Work out with us to get in racing shape, transform your body, meet friends for life and cross the finish line with pride!
