Private Training Environment
Because USI functions in a private training environment, there are things we can do here you simply cannot do at a membership based gym. You will never run into equipment being unavailable or people in your way. This allows us to train you the best ways needed based off your goals. We can manage how long of a rest you get between exercises, combine circuits if necessary, and utilize the best training equipment to give you the biggest bang for your buck.
Personalized Training Program
Planning your Goals
At Urban Strength Institute we customize a training program so that you continue to see improvement from month to month. Once you’ve adapted to a program we know what you need to do next for continuous progress. Many places have no set plan and just provide you with a “workout of the day”. At USI we believe in a plan. We do this by actually having one written out. The dullest of ink is better than the best of memories. We believe in the kaizen principle; what gets measured gets improved.
Your personal trainer should really be your coach
We like to start by giving you food logs that see what your current habits are. From there we can start to make changes that have a low failure rate because they’re easy to apply. We establish a plan so you know what you should eat or not eat and give you guidance on any lifestyle changes that are necessary in order to accomplish your goals. Most importantly we help you keep those results you’re looking for.
Pre, Intra, and Post Workout Nutrition
At USI, your training is more than just your workout. Our trainers will guide you on the best ways to maximize your progress outside of the gym, including workout nutrition to get you through tough/effective training.

Results Aren’t Guaranteed, They are Earned
Meet the Coach
After high school I enlisted in Marine Corps and that love grew even more. As soon as I got out of the Marines in 1998 I got a job at a gym I was working out at to pursue personal training. I knew I loved training but didn’t really know it would become an obsession and my long time career. Since 1999 I’ve had up to four personal training certificates and I can say that most weren’t worth the paper they were printed on. What makes someone good at this is years of countless hours studying and applying what they’ve learned. Over my 15 years in this industry I’ve spent thousands of dollars on seminars, books, internships, and consultations with some of the best in the industry in order to become the best I could in the field that I love.
But enough about me. What matters is you, so you should be asking yourself “what’s in it for me”?
The cost is determined by how many times a week you train (2, 3, or 4 times) and ranges from $350 – $550 per month.
