This summer, we're mixing it up with an all new run/walk & workout series with our amazing partners at some great gyms & studios in the Pittsburgh area. Urban FIT is a free series that will consist of a 1-mile walk or 3-mile warm up run, followed by a 60 minute workout.
The first Urban FIT will be on Saturday, July 8 at Grandview Park in Mt. Washington. We will gather at the Bailey Drive park entrance at 7:45 am and take off on the walk/run at 8 am. At 8:45 am we will gather back at Grandview Park and Richard Butler from MECKA Fitness will lead a 60-minute Martial Arts Fitness class.
Martial Arts Fitness is a high energy low impact blend of kicks, punches and body weight exercises set to upbeat music. This workout is the perfect combination of martial arts and cardiovascular training that is designed for both the beginner as well as the seasoneed fitness warrior. MAF was developed from the actual training routines of world class martial artists and after years of tweaking, it is scaled for all levels of fitness. Extra bonus it is... FUN
MAF is taught by Richard Butler a Gold and Silver medalist in the over 35 National Karate Federation National Championships. In his 36 years in the fitness industry he has coached thousands of recreational, professional, high school and collegiate athletes.
