Corporate Fitness Event Options
Urban Kings Gym is a specialist martial arts gym and as a result we can offer our corporate event clients experiences that most have never encountered before. But beyond this, our supplemental classes focus on the all round fitness and wellness of our members - the combination of these carefully crafted sessions allows us to create corporate events that meet the needs of all fitness and experience levels.
We have a selection of pre-planned events combine a mix of our martial arts and fitness classes, bootcamp sessions or more technical sessions to give your group a basic understanding of specialist disciplines.
Let us take your group through their paces with a corporate bootcamp based on the principles of our conditioning & express circuits classes.
Our professional trainers will assess the fitness levels and abilities of your group and design a routine that will get your hearts pumping and your bodies sweating.
Our corporate bootcamps reflect the principles of high intensity training, mixed with resistance exercises to produce a full body workout that builds strength, raises your heart rate and burns calories.
After a bootcamp session you should feel the endorphins and the energy flowing throughout your body. A natural rush like no other.
