Though secret societies have terrific members-only benefits, their gorilla-centric initiation rites are often illegal. Make a solemn fitness vow that's legal with today's Groupon to Healthworks Fitness Centers for Women. Choose from one of Healthworks' five locations: Back Bay, Brookline, Cambridge, Chestnut Hill, or Salem. Then, choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a one-month membership (up to a $300 value). This Groupon is for new members only.
- For $29, you get one 55-minute Focus Training session (a $45 value). New members may purchase this Groupon for one session, but current Healthworks members get an additional session with purchase.
After a complimentary orientation, fitness-minded women will have one month to strut, prance, or Morris-dance through a large, open space of cardiovascular equipment surrounded by TVs. Members can use Healthworks' abundant free weights, stretching area, group fitness studio, and exclusive spinning studio before hosing down and decompressing in the gym's locker rooms, saunas, and steam rooms. Relax in the bubbling waters of the whirlpool and daydream about how good you'll look on the beach. Each Healthworks location offers a variety of classes, including yoga, Pilates, special prenatal and postnatal yoga, cardio, and advanced calligraphy.
Cut down on instances of Distracted Workout Syndrome with a Focus Training session—choose either a heart-pumping Gravity class, a treadmill-centric Burn class, or a body sculpting Pilates reformer group—all of which provide satisfying full-body workouts in an upbeat, estrogen-drenched environment.
Please be aware that the membership option will not be valid at the Cambridge location during "prime time" hours: Mondays–Thursdays, 5:30 a.m.–9:00 a.m. & 4:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.; Saturdays, 7:30 a.m.–11:00 a.m.

- A few months ago, I decided to try Healthworks and have been going ever since. The facility itself is very nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. The instructors are always upbeat and positive. They have helped me to get in shape and to learn about what works for my body. I really like this gym. I would highly recommend it! – fshnjunkie on the Boston location, Citysearch
