If I have an injury, can I still come in and workout with scaled movements?

It depends on the nature of your injury. If the injury is severe and a medical professional has advised you to take some time off to recuperate, we recommend you follow their advice. If it’s a minor injury, we are usually able to modify the workout for you to train around your injury and ensure a speedy recovery. Consult a coach or our resident Chiro Doctor if you are unsure.

Do you have Open Gym sessions?

As our schedule is constantly changed to accommodate our members, please check our current schedule for more information.

What is the difference between Urban WOD, Power WOD and Urban Foundation?

 

Urban WOD is for regular members and usually lasts about 1 hour. The class starts with a warm up to get your blood flowing and muscles ready for the “Workout of the Day” (WOD). Followed by a skill or strength session where you work on a particular lift or gymnastic movement to improve your strength and technique. The real fun begins with the WOD itself. These are highly intensive workouts, usually lasting between 10 and 20 minutes, all designed to push your strength, cardio-respiratory fitness, endurance & performance.

Urban Foundation is for beginners and usually last about 1 hour. Done in small groups. This foundation series involves highly personalized training and assessment led by our head coach & resident chiro Jeff and supported by our assistant head coach Eric. Utilizing their knowledge & expertise in human physiology & personal training, our coaches will ensure our Urbanites have maximum confidence in terms of technique, safety & efficacy before graduating to our regular classes. Progress assessment is done every class by the coach.

Power WOD is for regular members and is designed to give you maximum workout efficiency during lunch break. Get in, get out and back to work energized in 30 mins.

I’m new to Urban Edge; how do I read the whiteboard?

You will learn how to read the whiteboard during your Fundamentals course, but of course feel free to ask your group coach if you ever have trouble understanding what’s written on the board. You should also be aware that there is always room to individualize the prescribed workouts based on your particular strengths, weaknesses and goals.

What kind of meals should I eat before and after working out?

Your nutritional strategy will largely vary depending on your desired goals and outcomes for your training. Our coaches are well-educated and experienced in helping members of our community with nutritional guidance. Simply ask one of us and we’ll be happy to help you out!
