Body Boutique

2330 Yale Road • 785-749-2424

Step through the doors of Body Boutique, at 2330 Yale Road, and you’ll be greeted by a handful of women at the all-female fitness center’s front desk.

It’s by design, says Kristina Clement, sales manager.

The goal, she says, is to make everyone feel welcome at the gym, regardless of age or fitness level.

“A sense of community,” Clement said of the atmosphere Body Boutique tries to create.

Several hundred women come to the gym every day and take part in a variety of group fitness classes or train on their own. But linger around the gym, and you’ll see as much talking and socializing as working out.

Clement said she hopes her members “feel like this is a second home.”
