Total Woman, Total Convenience

Total Woman Gym + Spa Encinitas Helps Women Achieve Total Results

In our hectic lives today the concept of self-care is becoming more and more of an anomaly. Daily to-do lists continue to grow and needs for health, wellness, and weight loss get pushed further and further down the list until, once again, the day is over. This is especially true for many women. But one local business does offer a solution – Total Woman Gym + Spa is a full-service gym and spa with onsite childcare.

“Our unique concept is like nothing you have ever seen.”

“Our unique concept is like nothing you have ever seen,” said Victoria Kreutzkamp, Chief Operating Officer at Total Woman Gym + Spa. Guests choose from a wide range of services and classes to customize their experience. From group classes, such as Zumba, Body Blast, Cycling, Barre, Pilates, and Yoga, to individualized personal training sessions, the offerings and schedule are designed to meet every member’s needs and goals. Health, though, does not begin and end with the workout – Total Woman is set within a spa-like atmosphere where massages, facials, waxing, and body treatments are available, as well as a sauna, steam room, and whirlpool. Membership Options include fitness only, spa only, or a combination of the two. Additionally, the day spa is open to the public. “Our success stories range from weight loss to improved mobility, from transformation to independence,” Victoria explained. “Plus, if they have little ones, they can take advantage of our kids’ club. There’s no need to find a separate babysitter.”


The convenience and versatility create an environment where every member feels welcome. “At Total Woman, I feel really comfortable and I’m not self-conscious. I can just enjoy my workout,” shared Christy Changaris, a club member. “Total Woman has helped me to achieve balance in my life, so that some days I come in the gym and I work really hard and some days I just have fun. And obviously I’ve gained strength and fitness, which helps in every aspect of my life.”

“Our mission, our purpose, is to be a destination for busy women to achieve their fitness and health goals, as well as take time for their well-being through rejuvenating spa treatments,” Victoria acknowledged. And to accomplish this mission, Total Woman Gym + Spa hires only the best instructors, spa team, childcare personnel, and customer service staff. All the personal trainers are NCCA accredited and the estheticians and massage therapists are licensed and experienced. “We know that women spend most of their lives putting other people first, and, as a result, their needs often get pushed down on the priority list,” Victoria said. “We’re here to change that. The time our members spend with us is time they take for themselves.”
