“We cannot be damaged into health.” ~ Herbert M. Shelton, Rubies in the Sand



I was fitness professional for 15 years. When I came to BodyStrong Boston 3 years ago to train with Jan,  I was injured, unmotivated and bored with gyms.

Jan Murray’s method of fitness has changed not only my body, but my outlook on life. She is so genuine in her caring about each person that walks into her studio that I found myself motivated to exercise for the first time in a long time.  Jan is bringing so many wonderful things to the South Shore community……Ballet for the adult learner, Restorative Yoga, the Trunk Training method, where she uses a variety of tools to help keep a person in perfect spinal alignment while they are exercising.

As a 54 year old woman, I value Jan’s knowledge of the body and her ability to apply that to a class setting where everyone feels valued and safe. When I began working out at BodyStrong Boston, I had a very injured shoulder with hips and knees that hurt most days. My body now moves with ease and I look forward to exercising because BodyStrong Boston is more than a work out studio, it is a community where everyone feel welcome!

~ Chris Lawson

My wife and I have been taking exercise classes for decades – from gym environments to having a personal trainer come to our house. BodyStrong Boston was referred to us about a year ago.  My wife started first then I joined in March, 2015. What a great decision I made by listening to my wife!

Jan Murray is tremendously motivating, caring and knows the body’s way. We take her strength & conditioning & yoga classes. She not only models the positions and motions, but explains the cause-and-affect of each movement. She watches us closely and gives touch cues so we can come into proper alignment, use the targeted muscle group, or feel what part of the body should be activated. Every time the workout is varied and challenging in a good way. Dance classes are offered on Fridays, and we take those classes too!

The camaraderie of all the people attending Jan Murray’s classes is unbelievable. We all know each other by name and new people are welcomed in. New friendships have formed through walks in nature, informative health talks, after exercise socializing,and holiday gatherings.  

We love our small group fitness workouts.

This is our Fitness One Stop!

~ Henry & Jan Yeh

Jan’s classes are so much more than your typical exercise class. For me, it feels like personal training sessions in a group setting. She identifies your weaknesses and helps you to gain strength in those areas in a safe way. This personalized approach, along  with Jan’s genuine and compassionate personality, make it hard to stay away once you experience it. I believe once word gets out about her new studio, BodyStrongBoston, there will be a waiting list to get into a class. That may be good news for Jan, but not for those who hesitated to sign up.

“Working out with Jan Murray has changed my life! For over 15 years my health deteriorated as a heart problem nearly crippled my ability to exercise, even walk, without fear. Through a unique combination of strength training, yoga, aerobic exercise, and emotional support, Jan patiently encouraged me to move forward at my own pace, to find my “edge” and to trust my body. Four years later, my fear of exercise is gone, my health is improving and the energy and confidence with which I face the challenges of each day is amazing. Through Jan, I have met many wonderful, caring and supportive people with whom I share my journey to better health. I am grateful every day for Jan’s holistic approach and positive influence not only on my level of fitness but on my  quality of life. I am truly blessed.

“For anyone interested in understanding the workout experience with Jan Murray.

I have worked with Jan for the past 8 years. She is constantly learning and sharing the newest ideas and incorporating those into our workouts. She has the unique ability to push you to your full capacity without your feeling pushed, to help you accomplish things you never dreamed you were capable of doing, making you feel incredibly good about yourself. The camaraderie she has helped build is only exceeded by the excellence of her training experience, I feel so fortunate to Have worked with Jan- I am accomplishing things I never dreamed possible before I began training.”

“My wife and I have trained with Jan off and on for the past 10 years. She is an inspired and inspiring trainer, a joy with which to work, and we experienced amazing results. We have learned exercise,wellness, and meditation techniques from her that we continue to use on a daily basis. We give Jan our highest recommendation!”

~ Tim Maynard

“Jan is an extensively trained personal trainer. Her combination of physical therapy skills and yoga skills makes for an integrated workout. Her incredible awareness of the interplay between the muscles, ligaments and skeleton has helped me tremendously as I deal with back issues. Can’t say enough for her dedication!”
