Bored of all the diet fads and trends and nonsense marketing? Most people seem to wrestle with their desires for ‘bad foods’ and suffer as a result. We’ve created a 6-week step-by-step guide about what to eat to lose weight, increase your energy levels and be more healthy in the long term. Read our plan for a happier you through food!
Whether training for a Tough Mudder, 10k or half marathon, running, when done correctly, improves agility and fitness, helps improve body composition and most importantly, is fun! But if you run, it’s almost a given that you’ve had a running injury. That’s because you haven’t learned the skill of running. In this guide we teach you so you can run faster, and stay injury free.

Great fun and very motivating! The kit classes are my favourite, perfecting my technique of spinning a Bulgarian bag and lifting Kettlebells. I feel stronger, I’ve lost 3kg in a matter of weeks and I feel great. Can’t wait for class on Tuesday!

I have to say that I am a bit peeved with all this fitness stuff at the moment. None of my clothes fit anymore and people keep going “Wow…. thats amazing!” But now I have to go and buy a whole new set of clothes. Jeans that used to fit snuggly now make me look like a rap wannabe… my favourite shirt looks like a dress… Oh well.
The Urban Athlete classes are a great way to fit exercise into a routine, the classes are easy to get to (or get up for at the weekend!). The personal attention is great, my fitness has shot up very quickly as they focus on technique and quality reps.
I’m really enjoying the Urban Athletes’s classes. They’re a great mix of strength, stretching, skills and all round fitness. Much better than just going for a run or the gym!
Urban Athletes is unlike any kind of training I’ve done before, inside or outside a gym. The sessions are challenging and varied but always really good fun. It’s great to get a good training session outdoors with kit like kettle bells and Bulgarian bags rather than in a stuffy gym. Tristan, Richard and Simon are very knowledgeable, helpful and most importantly for me, approachable. They focus a lot on your individual form and technique in each session so you can be sure you’re really getting the most from your workout. I usually attend 3 sessions a week and I feel great for it, I also find the help and advice I get at Urban Athletes is really helping me to reach my fitness and body shape goals.
Transformational! Over the last 5 years I have been working and living in London and as a means of keeping fit I have been bound by the gym. Urban Athletes has given me the freedom, fitness and physical and mental wellbeing that I have strived for as long as I can remember. The guys at Urban Athletes just get it. An amazing variety of workouts which are underpinned by technical know how and detail that is second to none.
I would highly recommend Urban Athletes to anyone looking to get fit in an outdoor environment. The trainers are fantastic – highly skilled, experienced and knowledgeable and most importantly, really friendly and welcoming. I found the kit classes brilliant. They provide a dynamic, challenging and effective whole body work out which is actually really good fun too. The Trainers focus on good form and technique and work with you to ensure you get the most from every single exercise. It’s way better than anything I have ever experienced in a regular gym environment and certainly much better value for money too. Overall, it’s superb way to get fit. I can’t recommend them enough.
