My name is Chandra Gopalan and I am the lady with the (gentle) iron arm at the helm of Contours – The most comfortable, convenient and confident workout space for women in India. Let me tell you a little story…
You know that feeling when you walk into a new gym where no one speaks to each other! Or those gyms with trendy workouts that don’t give you the results you’re seeking. Where you feel like you’re on an island of being unmotivated and left out. Contours was created to be the exact opposite of that.
As a nationally ranked fitness competitor and a fitness nerd with every certificate in the book, I figured that I could create a gym that would help women get the best work out of their lives and feel empowered and encouraged.I wanted to build a community, a place where women felt like they belonged. Where they could meet other women with similar goals and interests.
So in partnership with Contours Express (an international fitness chain, HQ in the U.S.A), a unique fitness space came to be. The intent was to help as many women achieve personal fitness goals, gain confidence and feel like they are a part of something important. What started as a dream in 2006 is today India’s biggest chain of Women Only Gyms, with 11 centres across the country (and growing).
Our life’s mission at Contours is two-fold. On one hand, it’s all about helping you lose fat, gain lean muscle, build stronger and more capable bodies and have more energy than ever before. But on the other, it’s all about creating a community of warm, confident women. Women who build each other up and encourage the best in one another.
So, whether you’re a seven-days-a-week workout woman, or if you’re training for a specific fitness goal. If you’re new to working out, or if you’re just getting back into the swing of it after a while… Contours is here to get you to where you need to be.
As a woman your body has been blessed with all the right curves for embracing life, its challenges and opportunities with instinct and courage. At Contours, we help add definition and confidence in realising the achievement that you know is within you.
