Fitness to the Power of 3

Elevating Performance at Urban Athletic Club

At Urban Athletic Club, we’ve mastered the rule of three. We understand that training is not just about brute force or mindless repetitions; it’s about targeting specific aspects of our physiology to optimize performance and results. Our specialized training block focuses on improving three vital metabolic pathways, developing three diverse muscle fiber types, and challenging our body movements across the three planes of motion. This is a holistic approach to fitness, one that maximizes the potential of our bodies, and the proof is in the power of three.

Unleashing Energy: Three Metabolic Pathways

Training at Urban Athletic Club is like being a master conductor of a physiological symphony. We fine-tune our workout regimens to engage three metabolic pathways—oxidative, phosphagen, and glycolytic. The oxidative pathway is our endurance maestro, responsible for long-duration, low-intensity exercises. The phosphagen system comes into play during short, high-intensity workouts, while the glycolytic pathway bridges the gap between the two, focusing on medium-duration and medium-intensity exercises. We achieve a fitness equilibrium by training all three metabolic pathways, pushing our bodies to generate energy more efficiently for any given task. It’s like being a hybrid athlete, ready to perform under any condition.

Sculpting Strength: Three Muscle Fiber Types

Our approach also targets three distinct muscle fiber types—slow oxidative, fast oxidative, and fast glycolytic. This triad provides a comprehensive platform for strength, speed, and endurance. The slow oxidative fibers, or your marathon runners, excel at long-duration, low-intensity exercises, while the fast glycolytic fibers, the sprinters of your muscular system, are primed for short, high-intensity activities. In the middle, fast oxidative fibers balance both worlds, providing quick bursts of energy and reasonable endurance. Training these three fiber types is like sculpting a perfectly balanced athlete, capable of demonstrating power, speed, and resilience.

Mastering Movement: Three Planes of Motion

Last, but not least, our training challenges the three planes of motion—sagittal, frontal, and transverse. The sagittal plane splits your body into left and right halves and governs movements like lunges and bicep curls. The frontal plane, dividing your body into front and back, facilitates actions like side lunges and lateral raises. The transverse plane, bisecting your body into top and bottom, controls rotational movements like golf swings or discus throws. By integrating exercises that challenge these planes of motion, we foster agility, balance, and strength, providing a multidimensional approach to movement and a well-rounded athletic profile.

The power of three underpins our holistic and effective training at Urban Athletic Club. We don’t just train hard—we train smart. Each session fine-tunes the intricate symphony of metabolic pathways, molds diverse muscle fibers for optimum strength, speed, and endurance, and challenges the complex dimensions of movement. By harnessing the power of three, we help athletes transform into their most powerful, resilient, and versatile versions. Experience the magic of three with us and unlock your true athletic potential.
