Les centres de remise en forme « réservés aux femmes » : une injonction à la santé d’un nouveau genre ?

Abstract : Since 2004, in France, fitness centers dedicated exclusively to women have been emerging. They present a material, spatial, and human organization eliminating all kind of physical normalization. We tested this affirmation with an inquiry based on observations and semi-structured interviews. In these places, the body remains largely subjected to gendered physical norms. Forms of social control are established and contribute to chastising any deviation from dominant physical standards; their originality lies in the fact that they are no longer developed by peers, but by representatives of these institutions, and by the fact that they are justified by health purposes.
