Specialized Fitness Programs Designed for Women

Empowering women to stay healthy and strong through every stage of their lives

Here at The Studio, we follow the teaching method of The Center for Women’s Fitness. This method has been developed over the past 25 years to reflect the unique exercise needs of the female anatomy and physiology.

Our classes reflect this method of teaching by concentrating on the pelvis and pelvic floor and building programs from a strong and stable foundation which will allow for a better progression towards a more advanced workout. You will develop greater flexibility, lessen the dysfunction and improve overall strength.

Our Services

Currently all classes and private sessions are offered virtually.
You get to experience the Center method from the comfort of your home.

Women's fitness and Pilates studio in Chicago, Edgewater location


The Studio @ The Center for women’s fitness is the physical headquarters for the internationally known The Center for Women’s Fitness. Located on the Northern Side of the city of Chicago in the peaceful Edgewater neighborhood, the Studio offers group classes and private training  designed for all stages of women’s life. The Studio offers the unique teaching methods developed by founder Carolyne Anthony, exclusively designed for the female anatomy and physiology. 

Carolyne is a gentle yet empowering guide for mind-body movement. Under her keen eye for assessment, I was able to rediscover efficiency in my center. I am grateful for her fascial movement series that released my hips, back, and neck after a challenging car accident.
Thank you, Carolyne!
