Hello UF Community!
There are still a few weeks left of the summer season, but the UF team wanted to do a quick recap of the events we have held here at UF over the past few months, and a look into some events happening here in the future. Todd had the takeover Tuesday on our Instagram story this past week and highlighted some of our members who attended these events as well. We appreciate all the support from every one of you who had made it out to our events and all who plan to be in attendance in the future.
Iron City Open: Doug and his team put on a great event here at UF in June. We had several members compete in their first powerlifting meet that day and had several repeat competitors as well. We look forward to being the host site for this event every year.
Pride Night Bootcamp and Comedy Show: We had an awesome time and raised money for a great cause, too. We had a 60min (ish) bootcamp style workout followed by some food and a comedy show with a few local comedians as well as our very own MC and longtime member, Tim Bickerton. Special shoutout to Ava for making this all possible!
Ladies Night: This is held every 2nd Saturday of the month and is open to members and/or non-members. It is a great way to meet some fellow strong ladies and to get a workout in with some equipment that you may not typically use during your gym time. Be sure to make it out to one of these Saturday’s and mention it to your friends, too!
United Not Divided Event: This year was the first annual event. UF was the host gym, Leg1on Training and Performance had come to us with the idea and Pittsburgh Fitness Project was teamed up with us as well. It was an awesome event and turnout, and a great way to team up with fellow gyms and members in the Pittsburgh area. Stay tuned for details for another partnership and event in the future!
Yoga For Lifters: Our very own Curtis Miller and Meagan Gnibus were the OG founders of this event, and it was a huge success. The turnout was high, and the feedback received was even better. We hope to make this event or a similar event happen again in the future, so stay tuned.
ACB and Commonplace Coffee Bootcamps: These are a great way to get introduced into group style classes and have some fun while doing it. Both were a lot of fun, and even included a free beer at Allegheny City Brewing and a free coffee at Commonplace. We had around 30 total bags of clothing donated for a local shelter – the Light of Life, and monetary donations that benefited the Bridge Outreach as well.
Loop the Loops Ride+Walk Fundraiser: UF will be the site host for this event on August 13th. This event is to celebrate BikePGH’s 20th anniversary and the completion of the Allegheny Circle conversion project. You can ride, roll, and walk around the circle, while raising funds for BikePGH’s continued work and mission in the great city of Pittsburgh.
