Early in the quarantine I was doing the recorded workouts irregularly, and cherry-picking sessions for the movements that I like. The live streaming workouts allow me to be more consistent, and have a more rounded fitness plan. The social aspect of the live streaming sessions is also a big draw. The UA gym is a community; and the live sessions allow me to see and interact with the other members in a safe and responsible way. The live coaching allows the trainer to see me, verify that I have proper form, and offer modifications when needed. I’m very thankful to have these live streaming sessions which are helping me maintain and improve my fitness during this year. They have been something consistent in a chaotic year.
When isolation started I wondered how I would keep up my workout routine, but I didn’t have to worry for a second, because the coaches at Urban Athlete were ready with live streaming workouts multiple times daily! These workouts have helped me continue to build strength and mobility, offered challenges far beyond what I would do on my own, and kept me accountable to myself. The variety of the workouts has kept me engaged and excited, and I appreciate the focus on bodyweight exercises that are accessible to everyone and don’t require equipment. I look forward to these workouts each day, and I feel strong and healthy.
One thing that’s been surprising is how great coaching really translates over the internet: the coaches offer modifications, give feedback, answer questions, give us lots of encouragement, and make us laugh. Everyone is able to access the workout in a way that fits their body and their needs. And as I mention “us,” it is important to share that the sense of community and camaraderie that makes Urban Athlete a home to so many, is felt just as strongly at home (especially as our kids pop their heads into the frame to say hello).
Pamela and UA crew,
Thank you for all that you have done to create a great workout experience during this challenging 2020 year!
These past nine months Urban Athlete live streaming workouts have been amazing for my physical as well as mental well-being. I still get to chat and connect with our friendly UA coaches and community of supportive members. With live streaming, the coaches can helpfully give alternative options to any exercises when asked and check on form to maximize benefits. I love that the live sessions are scheduled to give me a lot of options to fit a workout in during my day. They have become a highlight of my day! UA is the best!!!
Urban Athlete welcomed me in 2015 where I coached for two years and had a blast. The high-intensity interval training focuses on functional movements with an emphasis on form; crucial to lasting results and health. Urban Athlete has been a second family to me. You’ll find support to reach your goals and the coaches will motivate you to keep coming back. I am so grateful to have worked here and I couldn’t have asked for more from this community. When my husband and I moved due to his work it was tough to say goodbye!
Pamela reached out to me earlier this year to coach live streaming sessions during the COVID-19 shutdown. Reconnecting with our members and meeting new faces has been so rewarding. Our coaches are knowledgeable, diverse, and inviting. Give UA a chance and find the gym you’ve been searching for.
As soon as COVID hit and gyms were shut down, my gym transitioned to Live Streaming Workouts and did not miss a beat! I love that they offer Bodyweight sessions six days a week, Strength sessions three days a week, and if you miss a class you can take a follow along recorded session online. Also, most sessions have two coaches, one to demonstrate and workout with you and the other coach is there to check on your form. The best part is the Community that’s here to support you through your workout journey.
What can I say about UA other than it is best gym EVER! I have definitely been one of those people who gets bored with working out and going to the gym but not at Urban Athlete. Pamela and her crew of instructors always have interesting and intense work-outs planned each day. The small class sizes make working out so much fun and the instructors are always willing to give helpful tips and recommend new exercises if you need. The open gyms are great as they allow you to work out when you want. Above everything, this is the first gym that I have joined where I feel a true sense of camaraderie with both the staff and fellow patrons which makes going to UA and working-out an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience (Not to mention the fact that now my wife says I have “guns”).
