NOW OPEN! Our new Flagship location in the bustling Shaw neighborhood is a feature-rich training with space over 3K square feet of training space including 50' turf floor, 4 Olympic lifting platform, and a private training studio, all with new American-made Rogue Equipment.  


Urban Athlete

UAC's Signature strength and sports conditioning class, Urban Athlete applies functional movements to develop strength and endurance while promoting fat loss. Urban Athlete focuses on bodyweight exercises, sports conditioning, and dumbbell and kettlebell lifts without the complex barbell lifts used in CrossFit classes.


CrossFit broadly defined is comprised of constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. We incorporate combinations of cardio, bodyweight, and weight training into one hour group classes that also include mobility work and technique instruction. 

Personal Training

One-on-one training for those who don’t wish to enter our group classes, have specific sport/competition goals, or who want individualized programming and the accountability that comes with private training. 

RESET Active Recovery

Movement and mobility-based workouts to improve recovery, increase range of motion, and reduce muscle fatigue. [Starting Fall 2017]. 

Open Gym

For those individuals who wish to train on their own, UAC Shaw will offer specific times for open gym. 


About the space

Along with the expertise of local architect firm Nahra Design Group we created an open and spacious 3,300 square foot training space designed for high-level sports conditioning, Olympic lifting and strength training, and dynamic bodyweight exercise.  Spacious, private locker rooms and showers provide a luxurious atmosphere after a grueling training session.
