I am proud of the work we do here at UF. I also know that we offer more than most commercial gyms in the area. Today I want to highlight some of the things that make us different than the other gyms in the area.
Private space for our classes.
We are one of the few gyms that offers a private training space in a different building for our classes. Our performance lab is the perfect space to take our flagship class powerful. We also host yoga as well as other events in this space.
We are proud to be the home of both Point Park University as well as Chatham University athletic programs. We oversee the training of the teams from both of these fine local universities. To the average member this may not seem like a great thing, yet having the college students around always brings an extra energy and intensity to the gym.
PITT IS IT.
UF loves our hometown. We also love Pitt and are happy to have our Pitt powerlifters train here. While most of the Pitt lifters don’t lift here full time, most of the lifters do train here at different times. Seeing and supporting these young lifters brings a great energy to UF.
The fitness center does not get enough love. The fitness center offers everything you would need to get strong and fit. UF has many pieces of cardio equipment as well as racks, dumbbells, and kettlebells.
The strength lab is the Cadillac of training. We have everything you need to get strong and then some. Monolifts, platforms, racks, competition benches, and many different barbells. The strength lab always has competent spotters and a great group of lifters, who are willing to help each other and you get strong!
I am very proud of all the personal trainers that we have here at UF. The trainers here are a diverse group of strong trainers, and they do an amazing job with their clients. Curtis oversees all of this and he is a rock star with empowering our trainers.
One thing UF is known for is our powerlifting. We have our share of strong humans, and we host two meets a year. One thing that separates us from other gyms with powerlifting is our willingness to help all lifters. This weekend, World Record holder Bonica Brown trained at UF alongside many first time lifters back in the strength lab.
There is a basic overview of UF and why I know that we are the best at what we do. Come visit us anytime, and ask any questions.
