Healthworks Fitness Centers for Women will launch a personal safety initiative for women throughout the Boston area that will include a series of 19 complimentary self-defense training sessions in 11 locations, for the public during September and October. 

The initiative will launch with an outdoor Kick Off event in Copley Square tomorrow from 5:30-7pm with expected attendance of over 200 women.

Following the Kick Off, Healthworks will sponsor 18 more 90-minute community defense trainings in 9 Boston-area neighborhoods. These trainings will occur throughout September and October at Boston Centers for Youth & Families sites, Healthworks’ four club locations, GymIt Watertown and the Healthworks Community Fitness Center at Codman Square. 

Demand for such trainings surged following the tragic events of July 23rd, when valued Healthworks member Amy Lord was kidnapped and brutally murdered.
