I joined the staff here at Results Fitness in May 2018 after coming in for a Monthly Challenge. I was so comfortable here and I literally fell in love with every aspect of this amazing gym and the people here. I wanted to be a part of it immediately. I desperately needed fitness for myself and am very fortunate to have begun this career in the fitness industry at this “late” stage in my life. This is a new chapter, and I plan to make it the best. Hopefully, others will be inspired by my choices.
The journey to motherhood can be one of the most wonderful times in a woman’s life. It can also be a time filled with uncomfortable questions and concerns (why is your belly button doing that?!). From conception to birth plans, prenatal screenings to postpartum visits and midwives to physicians—we’re passionate about finding the path that’s right for you.
In 1971 a woman named Carol Downer used a speculum, a mirror and a flashlight, to look at her own cervix. She was the mother of six children and had never seen her own cervix. She saw where her babies had passed through, where her menstrual flow came from, and what the doctors had commented on over the years. It was a very enlightening moment for her. What she did with that knowledge was revolutionary. She was part of a woman's group, working to legalize abortion. She took her speculum to the next meeting and showed them her cervix. The group in turn took speculums to the California NOW conference and did "Self Help" for hundreds of women. Self Help groups became a place where women could see their cervixes, talk about their reproductive health care, and learn from each other's health experiences.

Entertaining and spending time with my crazy husband, insane family and amazing friends mean everything to me! The more the merrier! I am inspired in my fitness journey by my youngest son. At age 18, he moved to California, planted a church, went to college and lost over 100 pounds. Two years later, he ran the San Francisco Marathon and is currently training for the Seattle Marathon. I don’t see a marathon in my future, but I am learning to never say never!
Women’s Health Concern is greatly indebted to the late Miss Elizabeth Stalley whose generous bequest made possible the complete re-design and revision of this charity website in December 2007.Since then several benefactors, some preferring to be anonymous, have made donations. These are enabling us to continue to enhance the website and to provide funding towards our key outreach objectives.The trustees of the British Menopause Society and Women’s Health Concern thank you all, especially those who have supported us having suffered loss of close family.
When I first arrived the customer service was great. The woman at the desk took me around the space—-showed me the lockers etc. I wasn’t sure about using a locker because I wasn’t sure how it worked to get a lock… worried that it may be a hassle… but it was super easy. You pick a locker key out of an envelope by the front desk and leave a photo ID (license) in the envelope. The # on the key is the number of your locker. The locker room, showers, etc. were super clean. I really like the space.
The BEST GYM THUS FAR in the heart of the city! Women’s fitness of Boston gives the atmosphere of a spa with the comfort of your local family owned business. Julie the owner is amazing and actually teaches a phenomenal boot camp class. The staff are friendly and helpful! The gym is spotless and I love that there is a security guard at the entrance because it is downtown and Women’s fitness of Boston is a all women’s gym. Do not look any further this is the gym for you ladies!! I have been a member at WOW downtown, BSC downtown but both fell very short! I finally feel at home and comfortable in a gym where I can achieve all of my workout results!
Carol and Lorraine Rothman took a bus across the United States sharing self help with a box of speculums marked "TOYS." This was the start of the women's self help movement, and the beginning of a power shift in women's health. Women wanted to control their own reproductive destiny, to be able to decide when they had children, and be informed decision makers about their health care.

Over the years we have traveled to: England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Cuba, Jamaica, Belize, New Zealand, Iran, China, Japan, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Mexico. We have shared self-help with women in every circumstance. In tents in Mexico showing public health workers, in a senate office in Washington DC for legislative aides, in churches, YWCA's, women's centers and clubs. In London we did self-help in a center run by Wages for Housework where prostitutes could come for services. After a trip to Germany, women in Berlin started their own health center, the Feminist Frauen Gezundheit Zentrum (http://www.ffgz.de/). They shared self-help and did diaphragm and Cervical Cap fittings in a building they squatted. In Nicaragua we attended the annual Medical Conference where we learned that death from illegal abortion was the number two death of women in the country (war was the first). We spoke at their conference, and then did self help with 200 Nicaraguan Nurses.
