Lifelong fitness is a journey

At Urban Athletic Club our goal is to help you establish your current fitness baseline, create attainable goals and benchmarks, and ultimately support you to reach your athletic potential. Our coaching staff consists of nationally-certified, professional trainers dedicated to creating effective group training classes and custom personal programs.  Our gyms are "fitness playgrounds" filled with Kettlebells, TRX trainers, Plyo-boxes, and Sleds.




Dynamic Programming

Our training programs apply a variety of training modalities from bodyweight and yoga moves, barbell and dumbbell strength training, olympic lifts and plyometric training, and dynamic speed and agility training. All programs and movements are scalable, so we take all levels of athletes, from the beginner to the advanced. Aside from developing programming, we take time to educate clients on the movements and methodology. 



Getting Started

Prior to jumping into a class or training session, we prefer to get to know about your current activity level and fitness goals. Check out our Getting Started Guide

Whether you prefer working in a group setting or smaller, private training, we are here to help you discover your path to health, fitness, and performance.

Group Training Program



We break up Strength/Skill by ability. If you have the Skill, then you'll focus is on improving Strength. If you lack the Skill, then you'll focus on mastering the movement. Lifting with poor form is a recipe for injury, erratic performance, and false gains. 

For example, when the Strength workout calls for Lunges, then those who are proficient will use and add weight while those who lack the skill or range of motion will practice on perfecting their form. At the end of each session there will be an intense conditioning component. 

Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general.
— Mark Rippetoe



On these days we will focus on all types of conditioning, including High Power/Short Duration, Moderate Power/Moderate Duration, and Low Power/Long Duration. These workouts will challenge your body's 3 energy systems (ATP-PC, Glycolytic, and Oxidative) which is the key to achieving your athletic potential. 




Hybrid days combine Strength/Skill and Conditioning. Your entire body will be challenged to move with strength and power, skill and grace, speed and agility.
