Bootcamp and Beers Review

posted on July 13, 2020


In today’s Blog, we will be highlighting our 1st offsite UF Workout.  At UnionFitness we are striving to be a bigger influence in our community. We want to be a positive and uplifting part of Pittsburgh.  In order to be influential, we feel it’s important that we start in our own backyard, which is the Northside.  We wanted to get our faces out in the community, so we picked a local brewery to kick off our offsite workouts.

 

We ventured 4 blocks over to Allegheny City Brewing (ACB).  

 

This neighborhood gem is in the heart of Deutschtown on the Northside.  The owners of ACB, Amy and Matt welcomed the idea with open arms and allowed us to “GET BUMPY” (the words of one of UF’s prolific trainers and management staff, CJ).

 

“WITHOUT TRIUMPH, THERE IS NO GLORY”

 

With the new restrictions imposed on bars and Restaurants this past week due to Covid-19, we all were a little worried if we would still be able to have the workout.  BUT, we didn’t let the restrictions or the threat of rain stop us and we GOT IT DONE!!!  8 people came out and got sweaty before we all enjoyed the tasty suds of ACB’s Craft Beer.  There is something about struggling through a hard workout with people you know and don’t know, and then sharing a beer with them, that is good for the soul.  We want to continue to promote that feeling and meet new friends along the way.  I believe this is true outreach!  Doing things that bring people together, that can share their backgrounds with each other, is how we can promote community equity.

 

This was a GREAT kickoff to our offsite workouts and community outreach.  Our goal is to have one of these a month in our community to continue to show our neighbors that we are here, that we want to help, that we want to be a part of the change that is going on in our city, and that we want to continue to be a positive resource for our community.

 

Special Thanks to Amy and Matt of ACB and to the warriors that came out for the workout!!!
