We hate gyms. In fact, we think most people hate going to the gym. Just about everyone who’s involved with Urban Evolution did too, at one time.
And why shouldn’t they? Gyms suck. Treadmills with televisions in front of them? Arrogant trainers? Facilities that boast about how new and clean their equipment is? Clearly, something’s been lost in the concept of “fitness” lately. If you need distraction from your workout, maybe your workout is the problem!
At Urban Evolution, we believe in having fun. We think the most effective ways to get in shape involve doing things your body was meant to do, and doing it in a way that’s actually fun. And by fun, we don’t mean it’ll be pleasant or perfectly safe. We mean it’ll be hard work, and you’ll get sweaty.
But you’ll also learn to do things that someone who spends years going to their $40-a-month Globo-Gym just won’t be able to do, because we teach functional fitness. If you work out your muscles on various machines for years and get totally cut, but you still can’t lift a bag of mulch, what’s the point? Our brand of fitness will help you do things better in the real world.
We don’t need fancy equipment, and there are no tricks. We think you can do it, too. That’s why we’re here! We’ll help you get in shape in a way that fits you best and challenges you every day, every time you come into the gym. You’ll start looking at the world differently.
We promise to work you hard and build your capabilities in health, fitness, athletics and life, by training you in the way your body was created to function! And we guarantee that you’ll have a great time doing it, too.
