UF Adventure Team

For those of you who couldn’t join us last Saturday we had a fun day of outdoor exercise and showed our new expansion (The Performance Lab). We here at UF are happy to be expanding our services to all of our members. One area I am hoping to see growth is our outdoor activities.

 

One of the events we had last weekend was the first ever UF bike ride. It was a small affair with 4 riders, but an active and fun group. We rode our bikes from here through the Northside and into the strip district for a nice tour of our fine city. The ride consisted of a few nice little climbs but nothing too bad.

 

I hope events such as this ride become a more normal activity here at UF. With all that we as a society have been through in the last three months let’s all try to get outside more. Find ways to connect with your community and see the beauty in the world. My challenge to UF is to find ways to be active, while remaining safe and healthy.

 

Thank you all for what you do, and if you have new ideas as to how we can get outside and be better people, neighbors and friends please tell us.

 

Peace and Love,

All training this Saturday will be outside on our brand new turf area adjacent to our new performance center. Here is the schedule.

We have a few local sponsors that will may have some free stuff for you :-)! So bring a friend and we are keeping all classes under 15 people. All classes will be held outside so that we can all train safely.

 

Hope to see you Saturday!

Workout from Anywhere Wednesday: Yoga Edition

It is freezing and snowy in Pittsburgh today, and we’re noticing a lot of our gym regulars are opting to work from home instead of braving this weather. We fully support that decision, but want you to get a workout in!

This week we’re setting you up with a little yoga flow that you can do anywhere. It incorporates strength, flexibility, and endurance, so you’re getting three components of training in just one workout.

All you’ll need is a little bit of space and a mat if you have one. Go through the entire flow 5 to 10 times.

  1. Downward Facing Dog (jump to the front of your mat)
  2. Forward Fold
  3. Halfway Lift
  4. Mountain
  5. Forward Fold
  6. Halfway Lift

  8. Upward Facing Dog
  9. Downward Facing Dog
