Don’t fear change. You may lose one thing, but you will also gain something great!

introducing bodyworks

As some of you may or may not know, back in January of 2017, Pumps entered new ownership under the dynamic duo of Brett & Frank (you may have seen them around the club before). We didn’t feel it necessary to announce this change publicly, as nothing was going to change for our members…until now.

After 10+ years of the Pumps name successfully educating women about fitness and changing lives, we are excited to announce the time has come for us to move forward and modernize.

Effective April 1st, 2019, Pumps will officially be changing its name to BODYWORKS Fitness Center For Women.

Questions you may have…

  • Is the club becoming co-ed?
    NO, absolutely not. Being women’s only is what makes our space so different from everywhere else. We are proud to be women’s only and that will never change!
  • Will our membership plans or rates change?
    Nope! For our current members nothing will change except the name on the building.
  • Who are these men who own the club?
    A brief background on the fellas of BODYWORKS. Brett & Frank are both Massachusetts natives, husbands & fathers who are enthusiastic about fitness. Together the guys own a separate co-ed fitness facility in Cambridge, while Frank also owns one in Danvers (both with no association to Bodyworks). They have been successfully running their clubs for several years and want nothing more than to continue to see our club grow and flourish by modernizing and rebranding. As a staff, we have nothing but positive things to say about the new owners and are excited to be working with them to better our club.
  • What other changes will be happening?
    Most of the changes that you as members will notice are primarily just appearance wise. For starters, I’m sure you all have noticed our awesome new paint job, our new logos & signs will be put up over the next few weeks and our friend Antea from Antea Amoroso Designs will be popping up to add some special hand-lettered motivational words on the walls around the club. In addition we are planning a bit of a revamp to the lobby area and soon will be offering super cute Bodyworks apparel for our members for purchase as well as healthy treats/refreshments.

Management Team: Karrisa, Amy & Brittany

Karrisa has been part of the management team for almost 4 years now. Specializing in just about anything to do with design, from creating the new logo, to writing these monthly email blasts, marketing, signage, and everything in between. Amy is a familiar face around the gym and has been a personal trainer here for several years. With former gym management experience and her extensive knowledge of the fitness industry she was an easy pick to add to our management staff. Amy is our Small Group Training manager and runs a killer bootcamp herself on Monday nights! And lastly introducing Brittany, our newest manager and an awesome addition to the team. She has been a member of the gym since 2017, is a former Healthy Initiatives Manager for the YMCA and is currently in grad school to become a Registered Dietician. Brittany is our bulletin board queen and supply manager.

Carissa (with a “C”) who is one of our certified personal trainers now joining the team as a part time manager. And lastly, Sharon, our former GM, who couldn’t leave us, is staying on as a part-time Fitness Consultant.

We also wanted to include the familiar faces you have probably seen behind the desk. Our two shift supervisors and beautiful blondes, the fabulous Marty & Donna. Marty has been our front desk queen helping hand for quite some time now filling in when we need her and greeting members like they’re friends, not just clients. And our Donna, she has been a staple in the gym for awhile now absolutely crushing her workouts. When not out on the fitness floor she is behind the desk helping to fill the gaps and taking on all our little projects with ease.
