BodyScapes Fitness – Kendall Square Review

Last week I reviewed the BodyScapes Fitness – Brookline facility. This week (just in time for those Thanksgiving calories!) I’ll be reviewing the second BodyScapes Fitness facility in Kendall Square. Next week I’ll review the third, and last, BodyScapes Fitness location, Longwood Medical. I’ll be using the checklist I recommended last week.

Reviews

The negative reviews focused on the weekend schedules (not open long enough) and amount of space available for floor workouts.
