At Urban Athletic Club in Washington, DC’s vibrant Shaw neighborhood, we’re dedicated to providing our members with dynamic and effective programming that keeps them engaged, challenged, and continuously improving. October was no exception, as we delved into the world of weightlifting, our “electricity discipline” for the month. Let’s take a closer look at the highlights of our October programming and the remarkable achievements of our members.
The Urban Athletic Club Approach:

An incredible 164 personal records were set during this programming period. We couldn’t be prouder of our members’ dedication and hard work.
Testing and Improvements:
Testing is a crucial part of our programming, and October didn’t disappoint. We saw remarkable improvements:
- Weightlifting witnessed a significant surge, with 18 individuals leveling up their skills. Congratulations to Amanda, Brian, Cody, Craig, and Steve for their remarkable progress.
- Five members enhanced their Aerobic Power Interval performance with Emily’s outstanding move to Red 3 from Red 1.
- Rowing saw improvements from three members.
- In the deadlift, three individuals advanced in their categories.
The Importance of Consistency:
We want to remind our members of the vital role of regular attendance. Progress is achieved through small, consistent efforts every day. Our programming is designed to challenge you while allowing for gradual growth, but it’s up to you to show up and put in the work.
