Respected brother/sister

It would not be permissable for a women to attend to keep-fit classes accompanied by music.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam) mentioned, 'When singing girls and musical instruments becomes common, wait for red winds, earthquakes, the earth swallowing people, disfiguring and many more punishments.' (Mishkt 470)

One can always find an alternative class whereby music is not played in the background or organise classes oneself.

And Allah knows best
