A woman died while working out at a Christchurch gym today.

Contours Papanui, which is a female-only gym, closed for the remainder of the day as a mark of respect for "one of our much-loved members".

On Contours Papanui's Facebook page, the gym said it would reopen tomorrow.

"We appreciate your understanding at this difficult time and invite you to use The Palms branch if you want to work out this evening," it said.
