Introduction: Regular physical activity is considered as the first priority in healthy lifestyle. Due to the importance and role of mobility and physical activity in women's lives, the main goal of this research was to design a model for attracting females to fitness clubs by  emphasizing on the health promotion behaviors.
 Methods: In this research, a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods was applied. The statistical population included all female clients of fitness clubs, who exercised in these centers for more than six previous months in Yazd. For sampling, a combination of cluster and relative methods was used. The research data were analyzed using the structural equation model through the Amos software version 23.
Results: Based on the findings of the exploratory factor analysis, three effective factors of environmental (design, facilities, and health), social (administrators, family), and services (planning, advertising, cost) were identified in attracting female clients to the fitness clubs in Yazd province. The results of the model's fitness indices showed a good fitness for the proposed model.
Conclusion: The findings suggest the physical fitness clubs to have more effective plans. The club managers are recommended to consider expectations of their clients, especially women and mothers to  attract more customers to their clubs.
