Helping women to be their best, healthiest self is something that Shauna Robinson takes pride in.

“I’m all about service and helping women give themselves permission to making the best of themselves,” Robinson, franchisee owner of Total Woman Gym+Spa (TWGS) located in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, which officially opened last month, said. “[TWGS] is a non-judgmental, safe and inspirational place to exercise and take care of yourself,” said Robinson.

TWGS is California’s largest full-service gym and day spa with 16 locations throughout the state. The mission statement is one that seeks to empower women to learn what is extraordinary on the inside. TWGS facilities empower women to live their best lives by providing them with life-transforming tools to achieve total wellness in a supportive, motivational environment.

Robinson, originally from Oakland, CA, has been a part of the TWGS for some years having started at the Westlake Village location. She climbed the ladder from membership sales to general manager, a position she held at the Northridge location as well.


When the opportunity came along for a franchisee positon, “I jumped on it,” said Robinson. She is excited to be at the helm of the BHCP location bringing a much needed and deserved service to the area.

“I feel like this community has been neglected in terms of resources that are available to them for high quality fitness and wellness options,” said Robinson.

TWGS hopes to turn that around. The facility offers first class amenities such as a full-service gym including state-of-the-art equipment, cardio & stretching areas, massage areas, steam, sauna & whirlpool, luxurious locker rooms and engaging cardio workouts which include Zumba, Step Bootcamp, hi-low aerobics and yoga.

Most have forgone their New Year’s resolutions for fitness and health but it’s never too late to pick it back up again. TWGS may be the inspiration to spark new life into getting that beach body, good health or zen mindset back on track.

And then, there’s always the idea of getting a relaxing massage. Whatever the motivation, Robinson welcomes the community to come and realize their potential.

“We accept members as young as 13 [years-old],” said Robinson. “So bring your whole family down.”

Total Woman Gym+Spa is located at 3650 W. MLK Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90008 inside the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
