PowHERhouse Fitness, a women-only strength and endurance training gym, is slated to open in January at 15885 Hwy. 105 W., Ste. 4, Montgomery.

The facility will be used for small group sessions, with no more than 10 women per session, owner and trainer Kelly Diller said.

"You will get almost like personal training due to being a small group gym," Diller said. "This will not be a Crossfit gym. This is a gym where I will focus on different muscle groups each day and will be there to give the proper form and technique."

Building muscle and burning fat will be the target, and there will be one day of endurance or high-intensity interval training. Nutrition plans and 12-week plans will be offered.

Diller said she found her passion for exercise after an incident that left her crippled and in a wheelchair. She slipped and fell during her vacation in Jamaica, and when she returned home, doctors found she had herniated disks in her back. Diller said she began doing physical therapy and running, which helped alleviate her pain and depression. In 2017, she began going to gyms and lifting weights.

"Group sessions I liked, as you could be with other like-minded women, which is why I decided to create a women-only atmosphere with no judgment," she said. "I strive to help women of all ages and all sizes. If you've been injured, just let me know, and I can modify any movement. I want them to feel better about themselves as I understand being depressed, lonely [and] hating what you see in the mirror, but exercise can help immensely."
