We had a lot going on this past weekend here at the UF headquarters. The weekend started off with our second powerlifting meet of the year. We had about 60 competitors lifting and dropping tons upon tons of weights. We always love hosting these events.
We also had our Halloween BoooooCamp over at our friends’, ACB (Allegheny City Brewing). CJ “The Grim Reaper” Jasper led our team of ghouls and goblins over to put on a very scary workout that included, rowers, Rogue bikes, ski ergs, battle ropes, and the deadly prowler.
We had 15 “trick or treaters” that came and crushed our workout! We were lucky to have sunshine and great weather to give our trick or treaters an awesome experience. What made this special is that we had a healthy split of Union Fitness members and non-members that came out and joined the fun.
I have to say CJ held NOTHING back on this 5 station, 3 min round, non-stop, grueling workout! 10 mins into the workout the sweat was rolling off the heads of the brave souls that came out for the spooky event.
Here at UF, when we work hard, we play hard! After the 5 deadly stations, we were all treated to the tasty craft beers at ACB. Matt, Amy, and their staff always treat us well with all the different flavored beers.
Whenever we do special events or mobile workouts, our General Manager Todd Hamer is adamant about giving back to the community. This BoooCamp was dedicated to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We asked the attendees of the BoooCamp to bring gift cards for our friends over at the Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, and they did not disappoint! We have worked with WCS before and we love all the amazing work they do for victims of domestic violence.
Please stay tuned to our blog and our social media pages for updates on our next events.
