Fitness should be fun, rewarding, and of course, challenging. We want you to tune into your body, push yourself, and walk out with a smile on your face. Our coaches create programs that are accessible but not intimidating.

Our best part. We train hard and "cool-down" together, from planned weekend outings to Townhall Thursdays and Flag Football teams. We like to think that our community keeps everyone on track to keep and stay fit. It's cliche, but when you join us, you join a family.
The "Urban Athlete" class is divided into 3 distinct fitness elements: Athletic + Sports Conditioning, Bodyweight + Suspension Training, and Kettlebell + Dumbbell Strength Training. Our "Low Tech/High Yield" format creates an inclusive program for athletes of varying ages and abilities. We design programs and choose exercises that are taught and learned quickly. Simple isn't easy: Burpees are simple, but are very challenging! Each class spends one-third of time in each modality so that you get a comprehensive workout. The result: An athletic and athletic-looking body.
