It’s no secret that one of the things we are most known for here at Union Fitness is our Powerful class. During my time here at UF, I have first hand witnessed the class evolve from 3-5 members back in our crowded strength lab, to 10-15 members in our purpose built Performance Lab. During that time, I have also seen members who were once new to lifting walk in feeling slightly nervous and hesitant, who now have the confidence to walk into any gym and manage their own weight training routine wherever they go. That is a very Powerful feeling.
If you are new to our Powerful class, let me fill you in on what you can expect. As you walk through the doors, you will be walking into a 3,000 square foot facility outfitted with 5 power racks, a variety of different barbells, adjustable dumbbells, kettlebells, med balls, battle ropes, sleds, and 100 feet of turf, just to name a few. Once inside, you will be greeted by our amazing coaches who will take the time to get to know you before class begins. You will also be greeted by our awesome class members. Some who have been there since the early days of the class’ beginnings over 5 years ago, as well as some who may have just walked in for the first time just a couple days ago. Regardless of where we are in our Powerful journey, we all started in the exact same place, walking through those doors for the first time, and picking up a barbell.
If you are one of our members who have been with us for quite some time, we are going to continue to provide you with the best service possible, while bringing you some new ideas to each class going forward. Going into the end of summer, we will continue to stick true to our roots of being Powerful, strong, and conditioned, all while continuing to focus on movement quality and technical mastery. As the fall and winter months begin to roll in, we are going to make sure that we get a head start on the holidays. This means that we will not be waiting until the new year to start working towards those goals that we have. We are going to begin that right now. So, over the next couple of weeks, we want you to think about some goals that you have for finishing out the year. What are some things that you told yourself at the beginning of the year that you wanted to accomplish before this year was over? We are going to write those down and work together to hold each other accountable each day that we step foot in class. These goals can be large or small, broad or specific. But whatever it is, write it down and look at it weekly. We will do everything in our Power to help you get there.
