Healthworks Fitness celebrates the Power of Woman and has been an integral part of the Brookline community since 1991! We operate 4 premium women's only gyms including clubs in Coolidge Corner and Chestnut Hill, a large outdoor gym in Coolidge Corner and livestream classes to the world through HWX Digital Studio. Our members are hungry for intensity. They want to lift heavier, run faster, HIIT it harder and then recover with yoga or our spa-like locker room. Our team is working tirelessly to enhance our offerings for the community of your local club. Whether it be an amazing class, lifting heavy with a personal trainer or recovering with massage, our gyms have something for everyone.
The DJ: Heather Buda from Healthworks Fitness
Why do you love what you do?
Fitness has been a passion of mine for quite some time and I love sharing that love, mental escape and empowerment in moving your body with others.
Where can we find you when you are not at Healthworks?
When I'm not at Healthworks you can find me cooking healthy meals for clients, bingeing Seinfeld or walking along the Charles.
What is your motto when it comes to class?
My motto when it comes to class is "Take a moment and close the doors to the outside world. This is your time. Distraction free." I love this because it is so important to carve time out for both your mental and physical health. Taking a moment to "shut" the doors is you allowing yourself to just BE PRESENT IN THE MOMENT.
When creating playlists for amazing cycling classes at Healthworks, I love to focus my attention on the feel that the rhythm reveals to YOU. It doesn't matter what kind of day/week you've had or are having - my goal is to take you outside of the busy lives we lead, and transport you into a space where we can feel the strength, power, passion and confidence that each of us, truly, has as individuals. I'm also a huge sucker for a sick beat drop! If I've done my job, you will walk out of the class feeling stronger that you did (mentally, emotionally, physically) than when you walked in. Come experience my class in person at Healthworks Coolidge Corner or Healthworks Outdoors on Babcock St in Coolidge Corner or tune in from anywhere on HWX Digital Studio.
