Graham King

Founder, Personal Trainer, and Urban Athlete Coach

I believe that fitness should be dynamic and challenging. I adjust my training with the seasons. Winter involves weightlifting and snowboarding. Spring and Fall are spent outside with hiking, running, and biking. Summer means water sports and morning workouts.
— Graham King

About Graham

Owner and founder of Urban Athletic Club, Graham has been training clients and groups in DC since 2000. Over this time he has become one of DC’s leading experts in Functional Training – the concept of training to help improve how one functions, whether in health, fitness, or performance.

Graham combines the expertise, knowledge, and enthusiasm to create training programs that not only produce desired results, but are also fun to do.

Graham has trained a broad range of clients including athletes of all ages, weekend warriors, and plenty of baby boomers – he’s even trained three generations of one family! Graham's training focus is to help clients improve the way they move, which directly improves the way they feel and look. 

Graham stresses movement prep; balance and coordination; speed, agility, and quickness; and core strength development.  He is a Level 1 CrossFit Coach, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer by both the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the National Strength Professionals Association. Additionally, he has completed several other specialty certifications including SAQ (Speed, Agility, and Quickness), Core Strength and YogaFit.
