** A Project Lab Rat Experiment **
UrbanFIT Starts April 1st
Fleet Feet Sports first introduced UrbanFIT as a pilot program in the Fall of 2010. Fleet Feet Rochester owners, Boots and Ellen, attended the Fleet Feet Conference in San Diego where they experienced a similar class and decided to bring it to Rochester. This innovative workout is showing Rochester how to blend running with strength training while using the great outdoors!
What the heck is UrbanFIT?
Urban FIT is both an aerobic and anaerobic workout, mixing cardio and strength training. It is outdoors using what nature and our city gives us--no fancy gym equipment needed! Urban Fit is both challenging and fun.
Goals of UrbanFit:
1. To try something new and fun
2. To challenge yourself physically in a new way
3. To build total body strength to improve your running and health
What does UrbanFIT entail?
During Urban FIT workouts we will be running a bit but the primary focus is on core strength-- it's a total body workout! We’ll incorporate stairs, hills, benches, and who knows what else! If we can think it up, we will do it!
UrbanFIT Classic is the original 60 minute full-body workout.
UrbanFIT Intense is an UrbanFIT workout packed in to a 45 minute block for the experienced on the go athlete.
UrbanFIT Endurance is an UrbanFIT workout targeted towards those who like more running mixed in with their strength training. This is perfect for any mud runner or obstacle racer. (75 Minute Classes)
