Joining a gym is scary. "The first time I set foot in Urban Athletic, I knew I was home" - Theresa

Everyone there is already in shape. I should get in better shape before I join. "I went to Urban Athletic to lose weight. I never knew I'd gain a new life" - Kyle


They all know what they are doing and I don't. "I'm a 50+ year old grandmother, The acceptance and support by Urban Athletic has inspired me. How do you thank someone for giving you your life back?" - Clara


People are going to stare at me...  Judge me... "While the classes are awesome, the Urban Athletic staff is what makes it worth coming back. Not once have I felt judged or ashamed. I've only felt welcomed and at home" - Christina

Its ok to be scared.  We've got you.


The fitness industry is failing beginners every single day.  Most gyms just focus on signing people up. They throw them into a one size fits all membership and let them fend for themselves. They cater to the already fit and motivated because its easier.


Not in our house.


Urban Athletic Training Center exists to ensure everyone coming in to our facility feels welcomed and comfortable. We remember what it was like to walk into a gym for the very first time and feel scared. Our mission is to support you in your fitness journey from wherever you are at this very moment to wherever you want to go. We are proud of what we do here.


We Change Lives.


Program Options

At Urban Athletic Training Center we don't believe fitness is a one size fits all activity.  Everyone is different.  We all have our own goals and things we enjoy doing.It doesnt matter how good a class or training program is if you aren't having fun doing it.  The most effective program is the one you enjoy and stick to.  Thats why we offer many different memberships that allow you to workout on your terms. And best of all, you get to try them all for free during your Trial Membership.


Simple Access



"Urban Athletic represents what a gym should be; a community of people pushing hard to better themselves and loving life in the process"


"When I joined Urban Athletic I was in the worst shape of my life. I thought I would just workout on the treadmill like i had in the past.  But when you join you get a free session with the Director of Training.  We discussed my goals and got me to try CrossFit.  It was hard at first but the support and encouragement from all the coaches, staff and other members is a game changer"


"All I can say is wow! My journey began when I joined not only a gym but a family. The UATC staff and members became like a family to me.  Thank you for being so amazing"
