fitness for the urban athlete


I can never say enough about Urban Athletic Club. I’ve witnessed it’s growth and think it’s a great concept, with awesome locations and really cool people.
— Mar on the Run | DC Blogger
 

Trim the fat

get fit, fast with Efficient workouts

Burpees & Sprints. Brunch & Happy Hour. This is the vernacular of today's Urban Athlete. UAC exists to provide comprehensive, multi-modal workouts for the everyday urban athlete to get you in peak condition. 

We believe that training should translate to more than just getting better at the gym. Whether you want to improve your speed, agility, or conditioning for weekend athletic activities or simply look and feel awesome then our program is for you.

Want to learn more? Read about our Urban Athlete Class and watch the UAC Essentials to move better.

Our Core Beliefs

(1) Functional Fitness 

We believe that fitness should be fun, rewarding, and challenging. We want you to tune-in to your body, push yourself, and walk out feeling awesome. Our coaches create programs that are accessible but not intimidating. 

 

(2) coaches who care about making you better

The cliche of "practice what you preach" is true here. Our Training Team consists of current and former athletes, so you'll get an approach that is all about teamwork, commitment, and dedication. We like to share our knowledge in each and every class in a way that is quickly digested. 

 

(3) Create a Community that binds

Train hard, play harder. Team-based training builds a connection between athletes.  Classes promote teamwork, outside-the-gym events build friendships. We train hard and "cool-down" together, from weekend outings to Townhall Thursdays and Flag Football teams.
