Empower, Educate, Challenge, Achieve
We EMPOWER you through support in our Urban Gymnast™ values underpinned by our culture & community.
We EDUCATE you with decades of practical knowledge, leading sports science alongside the theory & methodology of WHY (understanding WHY is your right and the most powerful tool to fuel optimal outcomes).
We CHALLENGE you through progressive scaffolding and individualised drills to adapt and overcome physical and mental challenges no matter where you are in life.
We help YOU ACHIEVE your optimal potential with positive, fun and successful outcomes that always come back to the WHY because success thrives in our core VALUES, CULTURE & COMMUNITY.
As coaches and educators, we are invested in every part of the person, not just the physical body that shows up for training.
Welcome to the Urban Gymnast™ Family.
Work purposefully, train smart, recover thoughtfully and unearth the ultimate you!
Coaches Karl & Yvette.
