3 Boston Fitness Studios I’m Loving Lately


It’s no secret I’ve hit a few bumps in the road recently. But, unlike my current mental state, my body feels fitter and stronger than ever.

Here’s why. I’ve decided to channel any anger, frustration and sadness into a positive direction: The betterment of my overall health and fitness.

I know what you’re thinking … ‘Caroline, staying fit is your job! What makes this any different?/Can you really workout more??’ 

Well folks, the answer is yes. Instead of using the word more I am choosing to be more productive with my fitness, give my body what it craves (hello, yoga) and feed it with the optimal nutrition … and perhaps a bottle glass of wine.

Aside from my beloved Turnstyle Cycle where I teach 7x/week, there are a few Boston (and Boston-area) hot spots I’m loving lately … and here’s why:

1. CorePower Yoga

Locations: Newton, Medford, Cambridge (Alewife)

Parking: Yes. Medford and Cambridge have large-and-in-charge lots.

Cost: Drop-in rate, $23 | 5-Pack, $105 | 10-Pack, $195

Cool perk: If you’ve never been to the studio before, you get your entire first week for free!!

Why I love it: Something you should know about me … I am not a picky yogi. I enjoy a flow just as much as a structured class. To me, yoga is about breathe and finding space to practice without judgement or expectation. CPY is it for me. Plus the parking is a HUGE plus 🙂

2. Barry’s Bootcamp

Locations: Downtown Crossing

Parking: No, however, it is across the street from the MBTA (Orange Line) Downtown Crossing station.

Cost: Drop-in rate, $28 | 5-Pack, $135 | 10-Pack, $260

Cool perk: They offer ‘Academies’, ‘Memberships’ and ‘Hell Weeks’ every month. This allows members to save a few bucks if you’re planning on taking a plethora of classes!

Why I love it: This is one of the HARDEST workouts I’ve ever endured. Normally, I would never push myself so hard on a treadmill (sprints, heck no … incline sprints, you’re crazy) but with Barry’s I find myself challenging every muscle in my body. As well as improving my speed!

3. RX Strength Training

Locations: Somerville

Parking: Yes! Medium-sized lot.

Cost: Drop-in rate, $20 | 1x/week, $70 | 2x/week, $125

Cool perk: Personally, I’ll take the rough and tumble gyms over the she-she ones any day. Dirt on the floor? Yes. Chalk on the equipment? I’ll take it. If you’re not willing to get a little grimy, this gym may not be for you.

Why I love it: See above 🙂


Have you tried any of the above fitness facilities? If so, tell me what YOU thought? I’d love to know 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! I’m always looking to try new places and the place in Somerville seems great! I recently went to Orangetheory Fitness in brighton, which is what I think of as an easier Barry’s, haha we wore heart rate monitors so you could see exactly how hard you were working which was neat. We did treadmill work and water rower work and strength work. Decent workout and worth trying if you’re looking for a new place to add to the list!

    I am seriously obsessed with CorePower. I’m not a picky yogi either, but I just find that CorePower gives me both flow AND structure if that makes sense. The Fresh Pond location is 8 minutes from my apartment, and the Newton location is 8 minutes in the other direction from my apartment, so it’s super convenient too. We should definitely make a yoga date soon – I tend to go on Fridays at either noon or 4:30 at Fresh Pond when I work from home! I also like their yoga sculpt!

    Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to bear in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst people consider issues that they just don’t understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    Hey there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and fantastic style and design.

  6. ferragamo shiny loafers says:

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

  7. soulja boy ferragamo says:

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Fantastic blog!

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone who actually understands what they’re talking about online. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people should check this out and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

  12. digital marketing courses uk says:

    This would be the correct weblog for everyone who is wishes to be familiar with this topic. You already know much its nearly difficult to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin for a topic thats been revealed for several years. Wonderful stuff, just great!
