Where is Heartbreak Studio?

Our Cambridge location at 294 Massachusetts Avenue features Heartbreak Studio. We also have three retail locations (South End, Newton, Cambridge), each of which offer premium running gear and free gait-analysis. No appointment is necessary for a gait-analysis.

Which Heartbreak Studio class should I choose?

All classes at Heartbreak Studio are designed with one thing in mind – making you a stronger, healthier, and faster runner at any distance. Each class is tailored to suit runners of all levels – from beginners to experienced. Each runner goes at their own pace and feeds off the energy of the group! A full breakdown of each class can be found by clicking here.

Why isn’t the coach running?

Did you ever see Michael Jordan pass the ball to Phil Jackson? Did Bill Bowerman ever hand off the baton to Steve Prefontaine? No. Heartbreak Coaches coach. Coaching isn’t about us. Coaching is about bringing out the best in our athletes. For Heartbreak Coaches, our focus, our goal, and our mission is helping athletes of all speeds get better every day. The coach isn’t the star here; the runner discovering untapped potential is the star of Heartbreak Studio!
