At Healthworks Group, we remain committed to inclusivity, anti-racism and education at all of our clubs. As we celebrate Black History Month, we invite you to join us as we move, support, learn and amplify Black voices and the power of Black women.
HWX x Black History Month Community Fitness Classes
Celebrate with movement to the music of Black artists and our inspiring group fitness instructors. These specialty classes are open to our community (free for members and guests) as we set intentions, own our power, and come together as a community of women of color and allies. Classes include ACHIEVE (cycle) at Healthworks Cambridge with Joy Mikhail, 305 Fitness (dance cardio) at Healthworks Back Bay with Avana Epperson Temple and Zumba (dance) at Healthworks Coolidge Corner with Natasha Corbin.
