In an attempt to give myself some deserved ‘me’ time, I headed to Altrincham last week to experience Ladyzone. The concept behind Ladyzone is a fantastic one, because it is literally a place to go for fitness and pampering, just for women. Ever wanted to workout and not feel conscious because there’s a bulky man lifting weights next to you? Like to pop to a man-free zone for a bit of a workout followed by a facial? Welcome to Ladyzone, South Manchester’s answer to a dedicated ladies only gym, complete with classes, one to ones, yoga, aesthetics and beauty…
Altrincham in general is a lovely area, so I was very happy for the excuse to head to this part of Manchester to check out Ladyzone. As I hadn’t treated my skin to a facial in such a long time, I decided to book myself in for a skin rejuvenating facial to brighten up and refine my skin. From having a little research before hand, I heard that the therapist would use a selection of DermaQuest products for the facial, which have a fantastic reputation across the beauty industry. I hadn’t actually had a facial using this brand before, so I was keen to see how I found the results.
Firstly, I checked out the ladies only before my facial, checking out the equipment and workout space. It’s a lovely dedicated, kitted out with the usual apparatus designed for women’s fitness. Cross trainers, exercise bikes and an area for weights and floor exercises are laid out, and there’s a lovely lilac and pink theme across the gym. The complete male-free workout space!
As for my facial – I was overly happy with the treatment, the therapist and the results. She talked me through the routine she would use, and the products to use at each step. It included a thorough cleanse, an exfoliation, a mask and deep moisturisation, which resulted in glowing, fresh and super soft skin. The facial lasted around 40 minutes, and I left feeling all relaxed and refreshed.
If you are in the Manchester area and are looking for a combination of fitness and beauty in a female only zone, then I highly recommend checking out Ladyzone!
