Total Woman, Total Health

Total Woman Gym and Spa Encinitas Helps Women Live Their Best Lives

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 success stories range from weight loss to mobility, from transformation to independence.”

“Our unique concept is like nothing you have ever seen,” said Victoria Kreutzkamp, Vice President Operations 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. Club memberships come with options including not only unlimited gym use and classes but also monthly spa services at competitive prices. Total Woman Gym + Spa is committed to combining a comfortable setting with a fun atmosphere for members to achieve results. “Our success stories range from weight loss to mobility, from transformation to independence,” Victoria explained.


The concept for Total Woman Gym + Spa began forty-five years ago. The founder, Art Stone, owned beauty salons across L.A. and frequently heard woman request a single place where they could work out, lose weight, and be pampered. In 1967, Art opened the women’s only health club that offered massage and health food. Today, Total Woman Gym + Spa operates fifteen clubs across California.

“Our mission, our purpose, is to empower women so they can live their best lives in a convenient manner that fits within their hectic routines,” 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 NCAA 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 to the back seat,” Victoria said. “We’re here to change that. The time our members spend with us is time they take for them.”
