Stay Fit At Girl Fit

By Jake Levin

Kate Hamilton loves giving girls more than just a great workout. As the owner and founder of Girl Fit, an all-girls gym and physical therapy clinic in Newton, Mass., Hamilton strives to provide her clients with the education to better listen to and care for their own bodies.

"The best part of our job is that we are able to provide a safe, comforting, and empowering environment for girls to help support them to follow all of their dreams," Hamilton said.

Nutrition consults and yoga are two of the staples at Girl Fit, both of which Hamilton has a keen feeling for. The Girl Fit team understands what an overwhelming topic nutrition can be for women, who get mixed messages all of the time about the perfect body type from family, friends or coaches, but especially the sometimes-toxic wasteland that is social media.

At Girl Fit, the nutrition team focuses on providing education so that all clients learn how to have a healthy relationship with food that provides them nourishment, energy and growth.

Yoga, meanwhile, is a powerful method to optimize strength, flexibility, balance and posture, Hamilton said. Holding positions allows muscles to both lengthen and strengthen, yielding positive results.

"Yoga also allows for improved breathing and relaxation, which can be very empowering for girls in all areas of their lives," Hamilton said.

Physical therapy is available at Girl Fit; Hamilton herself is a trained physical therapist, after all. The sessions allow girls to become flexible, strong and confident through fun and dynamic methods which address the specific needs of women. Among the fitness options are the signature Girl Fit class, Girl Fit Cardio and Lady Fit, as well as more individualized workout sessions for girls.

You can sign up for our classes on our MindBody website (, as well as email or call Girl Fit for a 1 on 1 consultation ( or 617-618-9290. Girl Fit is located on 55 Chapel St., Suite 001, in Newton.
