Urban Athletic Club December Programming: Strength, Endurance, and New Year Celebrations

As we step into the festive month of December Programming at Urban Athletic Club, located in the heart of Washington DC’s Shaw neighborhood, we’re excited to unveil a unique blend of strength, conditioning, and celebratory workouts. This month is not just about continuing our fitness journey; it’s about embracing the spirit of the holidays and the anticipation of a new year.

Embracing the House of Fitness: Our Unique Approach

At Urban Athletic Club, we view fitness through the innovative lens of a house analogy, focusing on Electricity, Plumbing, Ventilation, and more. This approach not only makes our workouts more engaging but also helps members understand the importance of a well-rounded fitness regimen.

The Power of Electricity Discipline: Gymnastics

Our Electricity Discipline, akin to the power that lights up a home, this month focuses on Gymnastics. We illuminate our physical capabilities through variations of pull-ups, handstands, and ring work, emphasizing high muscular tension and control.

The Flow of System: Plumbing

In our System theme, focusing on Plumbing, we enhance blood flow through the muscles with exercises that mirror the essential role of plumbing in a house. This theme is about ensuring smooth movement and circulation and strengthening our physical foundation.

December Programming: Strength and Conditioning Focuses

Our programming this December is meticulously crafted to challenge and enhance your physical capabilities, preparing you for a stronger new year.

Strength Focuses

  • Test Pullup and Rings: We focus on testing our abilities in Pullups and Rings, marking our progress, and setting new goals.
  • Overhead Squats: These are about balance, coordination, and power, symbolizing the stability and strength of a well-built house.
  • Bodyweight: Focusing on technique and control, bodyweight exercises embody the essence of our Virtuosity theme.

Conditioning Focuses

  • Girl WODs: Incorporating the CrossFit© Girl WODs adds an element of challenge and excitement to our workouts.
  • Muscular Endurance: We prepare our bodies for prolonged activities, much like fortifying the foundations of a house.
  • New Years Eve + New Years Day Themed Workouts: Special workouts to reflect on the year gone by and usher in the new year with energy.
  • Partner Workout on Sundays: Building relationships and fostering a sense of community through teamwork.

The LIT Philosophy: Levels, Intent, Themes

Our programming is guided by the Level Method’s philosophy of “LIT” – Levels, Intent, Themes. This approach ensures that every member, regardless of their fitness level, finds workouts that are challenging yet achievable, individualizing the group experience.

Conclusion: A Celebration of Fitness and Community

December at Urban Athletic Club is a celebration of strength, endurance, and the spirit of the new year. As we test our limits and enjoy themed workouts, we’re building a community of fitness enthusiasts who support and motivate each other.
