Cambridge HWX Pop-Up Studio at 1957 Mass Ave

An important update for our Healthworks Cambridge members:

We are expeditiously moving through our Healthworks Cambridge renovation, and are very grateful for your patience and support.

Our team will begin moving equipment on Friday, July 21 in preparation for the start of Fitness Floor renovations which is slated to end in late September. As a result, on July 21, all HWX classes will be cancelled for the day, the Fitness Floor will only be open from 5:30-8am, and the locker room will close at 8:30am. If you have a pre-existing session scheduled at any time during the 21st with your trainer, this session will still take place.

Throughout the day on the 21st, our team will move the strength equipment into the Move Studio and Studio 2. In addition, the cardio equipment will be relocated to a new space on the fitness floor and in Studio 2. These three spaces will be equipped with our most popular equipment to allow general workouts and personal training to continue in the club.

HWX Move Studio classes and Cycle classes will take place at our new pop-up studio at 1957 Massachusetts Avenue, beginning Saturday, July 22. Our team worked tirelessly to find and secure this space, which is a short, two-minute walk from the club.


Yoga, Pilates, Gentle Stretch and Barre classes will also stop on July 21 and resume when the new Mind/Body Studio opens on the lower level; slated for the end of the month. During this time, we plan to offer a limited schedule of Mind/Body classes outdoors on the patio in front of the club as a great outdoor alternative. Please sign up for patio classes in ABC. You can also find more Mind/Body classes at our other clubs or on demand with HWX Digital Studio.

Important things to know about the 1957 Massachusetts Avenue Pop-Up Studio: 

Please sign up for all classes in ABC as you would for any other class. Capacity is limited to 46 people within the space. To allow us to offer two classes at one time, all classes will be using Sound Off Silent Disco technology. This will allow us to maximize the space and have as many classes as we can throughout the day.
There are two entrances; one for Cycle and one for Move Studio formats.

For Cycle classes, please enter the side door on Allen Street, and for all other classes, please enter the main entrance at 1957 Massachusetts Avenue.

Parking is still available in the Porter Square Shopping Center lot where our club is located. When heading to our pop-up space, please place a parking pass in your windshield to avoid being towed. These passes are available at our front desk.
Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your class start time as the studio doors will be locked.
Please do not arrive late for class. Doors will be locked after class begins and there is no guarantee that someone will be able to let you into the space. Your instructor will not be able to let you into the space as this will disturb the flow of class.
If you need to cancel, please do so 1 hour before class. Our standard cancellation policy is still in effect.
Please leave extra belongings other than a water bottle and your phone in the Healthworks Cambridge locker room as there is no space for personal belongings.
There is a water fountain and a restroom available. The restroom should not be used for changing clothes or getting ready for your day.
We will provide you with workout towels and body wipes.
