UA instructors provide group training that focuses on functional or compound exercises aimed at making you fitter, faster, stronger and more toned. We follow a block training schedule to limit the chance of injury and burn out. The focus is on exercise form to achieve speed, agility and power. You get faster, stronger and more agile by training with good form and in appropriate blocks to avoid injuries and burn out.
If you are looking for a fun way to ‘shape up and get fitter, faster and stronger’ in a friendly environment, come and give UA a try.
