Great class, what a workout! I love getting to know everyone and I am excited to see my endurance increase each class!
- Jill F.BOWTAI FitnessFeb 15, 2017
I had a trainer before which ended due to injury. Brian is great with explaining the workouts, showing the appropriate form and the incorrect form to avoid injury. Workouts are always changing which is challenging my body and my mind to push through each circuit rep. . I have noticed changes in my strength and some inches in my clothes, and it's just week two (week of Valentines 2017).
- Erin W.Applied Fitness CycleJan 6, 2017
Ive been put of the fitness world for about a year. Last time i cycle i was in great shape and loved how i felt and looked. I took time off from the world of weight lifting and found it very hard to get motivated again. My first class with sara was great! She was fun, energetic and pushed us. Everyone there was pedal to the metal! I love the on and off bike aspect!
- Karen C.PowerFull FitnessOct 10, 2016
I love these classes. For the first time ever, I look forward to exercise classes. It is not a chore but a joy. I leave feeling great and with a big smile on my face. I have taken classes from Laura, Stephanie, Amanda and Sarah. All are great, kind, caring and fun instructors. It is a VERY supportive atmosphere from the instructors to everyone who takes the class...
- Stacy M.The Studio by Absolute PilatesFeb 20, 2017
I love the instructors at the Studio! Today I went to class with achy knees and a headache. By the end of my workout my headache was gone and my knee pain decreased. I told the instructor, Lynette how I was feeling and she made sure to stretch and focus on my knees. The instructors really take the time to know you, what you want to focus on and how you're doing the motions...
- Lisa P.ManassasOct 13, 2016
I love this gym! so much fun ever time I go! Great classes for my husband and I as well as our 8 yr. old daughter.
- Lynne S.IN-FIT StudioOct 15, 2016
Joanne is fantastic. She always mixes it up and works different muscle groups. I always feel exhausted and fantastic when I leave--- ready to take on the world!
- Mindy .BaltimoreJan 30, 2017
This is a review of a parkour birthday party at Urban Evolution’s Baltimore location. My son is nine years old. He wanted to parkour with his best friends. We went to Urban Evolution for a class to see if he would even be interested in parkouring, since he had never been to a parkour gym before...
- Diane Y.Accotink AcademyNov 5, 2016
I was a a little hesitant to try out kickboxing, I am not going to lie. Remember Billy Blanks back in the day? Yeah I did those VHS tapes (not even DVDs back then!) so that is all I had to reference. This was intense and fast paced! Laura was phenomenal at providing cues and guidance ahead of time so I never felt lost and she provided modifications if needed...
- Diane S.AlexandriaAug 21, 2016
Wow! My son took the Kids Nano Parkour class 6 -8 yr olds. My son, who has ADHD is hooked and has never been this excited about a physical activity. My son was listening, focusing, following directions and wanted to do better and practice each move. As parents we loved the martial arts/structured fun approach to being fit. The instructor was very nice and patient with the kids...
- Jenna W.Prince of Peace Lutheran ChurchOct 4, 2016
The barre class with Amanda is fun and tough and I am so glad they are offering this fitness class here as it's so convenient after dropping off my daughter at school. No excuses!
- Susan D.MechanicsburgJan 18, 2017
I love everything about Absolute Pilates and Barre! My private sessions, group equipment and barre classes always make me feel empowered. All the teachers bring something unique to each class and the other clients are so much fun. I love sharing my love of Absolute Pilates with everyone I know!
- Samantha F.AlexandriaJan 1, 2017
I absolutely loved it. While the whole thing is a little more challenging than my old bones expected, having absolutely no finesse I was able to pull off each of the moves demonstrated. Things I wasn't able to do at the beginning of the class I could do by the end of the class. I'm completely sold that this is a brilliant way to get a decent workout and have a lot fun...
- Leigha S.HeartBeats Dance StudioAug 26, 2016
Piyo with Stephanie is simply amazing! Prior to starting this class I had not worked out regularly in over 8 years! Her enthusiasm and encouragement are just what I need to get through the 'pain' and get going ... and keep coming back for more!
- Brittany D.BYC|YOGA26Jan 17, 2017
This was my first ever Hot Yoga experience and it was AMAZING. I am only somewhat familiar with yoga but I never felt like I was confused about any of the moves except one which the instructor was quick to catch onto and helped me correct it. It was overall a great experience and I will definitely be coming regularly.
- Carrie H.Prince of Peace Lutheran ChurchFeb 23, 2017
I started these classes a couple of months ago thinking that I was going to do it when I can because I probably can't do it any way. This is how I have thought about most excercise programs. My outlook has changed. I look forward to the next class to see what I can accomplish next. The instructors are mindful of what levels we are at and give positive encouragement when needed...
- Julian L.BaltimoreOct 16, 2016
My son loves learning parkour at this place! He is very hyper and loves jumping off couches so we needed to find a way to transfer that energy elsewhere and this is the perfect place! So far he has been learning a lot and learning great body mechanics by learning how to land or jump properly for safety...
- Robyn H.Applied Fitness CycleJan 4, 2017
I started with AFC after being discouraged at the gym. I was unable to do the heavy workouts I use to due to recovering from decompression brain surgery and spine surgery last July. Chris and Sarah made me feel comfortable to find the right contract plan for my budget and also comfortable to go at my own pace. I have been going consistently for a few months and I feel stronger everyday...
- Vanessa A.BaltimoreNov 23, 2016
My friend and I took the intro class this past weekend just to try it out. Parkour looks so kick-ass and I didn't realize there were actually places that teach these skills. So, we get there and are slightly intimidated by the young boys who were in the intro too. They were naturals whereas my friend and I, both in our 30s, were majorly intimidated...
- Tanya R.Applied Fitness CycleOct 27, 2016
Absolutely the best work out I have experienced! The on off bike options are fun and the musicality of all the instructors is superb! Every instructor has their own flavor and worth checking out!
- Katherine DiPietro D.South Run Baptist ChurchAug 5, 2016
I signed up for Fitness Foundations because I've been inactive for several years and even though I recently started exercising again, I thought this class would 1) help me feel more comfortable with exercising 2) ensure I was up on the latest fitness info and 3) expose me to all the different types of classes that PFF offered...
- Rachael E.Applied Fitness CycleOct 26, 2016
I just tried Applied Fitness Cycle for the first time and was completely blown away. The facility is clean and simplistic with high-quality bikes. I met one of the owners, and she was kind and helpful. I tried Cycle Yoga with Stephanie and absolutely loved it!
- Kimberly H.Pediatric Partners for Attention and Learning IncFeb 15, 2017
We met with Dr. Johnson today. I was very impressed with her knowledge and insight. She listened and offered some great insight into the coming process and treatment. Having been told by another doctor that our son should just be put on medication without even understanding root cause was just crazy. I am so happy Dr. Johnson is more thorough. I highly recommend her from the first meeting.
- Virginia D.BaltimoreNov 16, 2016
what a great time I had in this class. I didn't know what to expect when I first walked in to the gym, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. Well I had no need to be nervous at all. the class was awesome. Adam taught the class and I couldn't of had a better instructor. He is very down to earth and easy to learn from...
- Cate H.BYC|YOGA26Oct 11, 2016
Edward humbly put a notice on FB that he is teaching the 6:15 at BYC. I have not taken his class since April 2016 . It was the excellent class that is Edward's signature style. He gives, not just the velvet dialogue but also has the more advance students do a quick demo. I am a visual learner so for me it is really helpful to see the flow of a posture. The room was at a perfect temp and humidity ...
- Cheyenna D.ManassasFeb 12, 2017
I took my two daughters, 6 and 3, to the Nano and Pico parkour classes. They looooved it. THe instructors were brilliant with the littles. I was super impressed with how comfortable they make my girls, but also how safe they were. My girls love to bounce, do yoga, run, dance, flip upside down on the couch. My 3 year old spends more time with her behind in the air than on her feet, haha...
- Mark W.ManassasJan 15, 2017
First off, while Urban Evolution is a gym, it is not not like a typical gym -- no show offs, no designer workout clothes, no over-the-top branding, and no patrons that looked photoshopped. Actually, if you had childhood dreams of turning your parent's unfinished basement or "storage" garage into a playground, Urban Evolution would be that dream. The Adult Into class started with stretches...
- Marcia R.Glatter FitnessAug 13, 2016
I have been trying to lose weight for years, but ever since I had my daughter it has truly been a struggle. I really don't like exercise, which I know is part of the problem. I decided to try Glatter Fitness by attending a free boot camp class that was on their website. Michael responded immediately to my email and invited me to come the next day...
- Yvette S.Applied Fitness CycleDec 21, 2016
I love this cycle studio. It has become one of my go to fitness zones (the other is yoga with Stephanie). I am in better shape than ever. The instructors are all great and have different methods to encourage and push you to do your best. The music is always awesome and each instructor puts in great effort to make their classes challenging but safe. This is way better than the average spin studio...
- Victoria D.Bethesda Boxing & Kickboxing AcademySep 13, 2016
I started going here in February of 2016. I've never been a sporty/athletic person and have always dealt with weight issues. I happened across BBKA when walking to work. I tried out their beginner's kickboxing class on Saturdays and was quickly hooked. What drew me to this place is that the instructors really listen to you, they get to know you, they support you, and they challenge you...
- Shannon F.AlexandriaFeb 6, 2017
I took their Intro to Aerial Silks class and was NOT prepared for the workout I would get. I have been looking for new activities to help get me in shape that isn't as monotonous as running or going to a traditional gym, and this is a great solution. Upon arrival, the front desk was helpful, and I was whisked away to the Aerial room quickly...
- Mor G.Applied Fitness CycleSep 20, 2016
Hurts so good! These guys will kick your butt and make you smile and cheer for more :) Awesome team and cozy studio make for a great workout.
- Sheila F.The Studio by Absolute PilatesFeb 7, 2017
Amazing!! As a former dancer for many years...I was still intimidated. I am soon to be 35 yrs old and my body feels terrible. I was super nervous... but I must say, The Studio by Absolute Pilates was just what I needed. Lauren is amazing and I really likes the smaller class size. Even though the other class goers have been doing Barre for awhile, I felt welcome as soon as I walked in the door...
- Connie J.ManassasSep 17, 2016
I took Intro to Aerial Silks and it was awesome. Instructor scaled class to meet participants needs, gave thorough instruction on how to use silks and was very safety conscious. It felt like a great core and upper body work out.
- Amanda G.AlexandriaJan 28, 2017
My son had his 5th birthday party here and it was amazing!! The gym was the perfect set up to get all of that high energy out and our instructors were so patient and fun with the kids. They started off teaching the kids some techniques like how to land safely and jump and then they took them on a full on ninja warrior course! My son was over the moon and couldn't stop smiling...
- Sonia M.AlexandriaOct 11, 2016
Gym isn't a chore anymore at Urban Evolution. It's what you look forward to during work. Goal making, happy coaches, and adventures all distract you from feeling like you are "working out." The feeling is so good afterwards. And most of all, the community is sweet. I feel so welcome when I am there, from the sign in desk, to saying hi to everyone in other classes...
- Kieran M.Bethesda Boxing & Kickboxing AcademyJul 25, 2016
Shane brings the pain, Tedd belongs back in the military and Greg missed his calling on Broadway. I've been going to Bethesda Boxing for around 6 months now and these are some of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I even got my mom personal training classes here as a present and she is hooked...
- Christeen G.Rebel FitDec 6, 2016
Rebel Fit is awesome! Great support for someone like me that hates working out. The 5:15am sessions and the total body training sessions are tough for me to get to, but when I'm done I feel like I can conquer the world. Vassie is a BEAST (don't ever say the word can't around her)! TJ is CRAZY the way he switches it up on you! Beny is a MONSTER that takes no excuses! You have to try it!
- Katherine F.Prince of Peace Lutheran ChurchOct 25, 2016
Good solid workout with lots of options to make it easier or harder, whatever your needs are. Laura is lots of fun and full of energy. Plus we got some great tips tonight on how to add more protein to our diet.
- farrah W.BOWTAI FitnessFeb 18, 2017
I've been working out with Brian for a couple of years now and it's truly been a life changing experience. I've found him to be knowledgeable but more importantly he is genuine and truly cares about his client's needs. His sessions that are always fun, enjoyable and never boring. He's a wonderful person, a serious professional, and a kick ass trainer! I highly recommend him!
- Nicole C.EnolaOct 13, 2016
I've been taking classes with Beth in Enola now for a little more than 4 months and I absolutely love it. Beth is a great instructor and every class presents new challenges. The time seems to fly by too. I really appreciate the convenient location and class times at the studio.
- ashley M.AlexandriaSep 25, 2016
This place is super chill and laid back. I took the Adult intro to gymnastics class and enjoyed feeling like I was 12 again. I wish I could have done more tumbling but it was only the Intro class. The atmosphere and people were welcoming, and I recommend trying at least one class. Doesn't hurt- I promise you'll smile and laugh at least once...
- Angela G.AlexandriaOct 16, 2016
I have really enjoyed my experiences at Urban Evo! I previously took aerial hoop classes for two years in Austin at a studio I loved, and wanted to find a studio here that felt that awesome. So far I have taken the Intro to Aerial Silks class and an Aerial Silks Level 1 class. The instructors are thorough and very good about demonstrating or talking you through a skill as many times as you need...
- Nancy L.Prince of Peace Lutheran ChurchOct 27, 2016
Great workouts and nutrition class. Many options for people whatever there needs are. It's supper fun workout and a place we're your toddlers are welcome. Nancy L.
- Jenna W.South Run Baptist ChurchDec 3, 2016
Piyo blast was a great class today and Stephanie Jenkins is an awesome instructor with great energy!
- Lonnie J.BaltimoreSep 20, 2016
Urban evolution was a great place for me to return to parkour and receive instruction from more experienced practitioners. The class was comprehensive and informed me about the nuances of the movements, where excelled and where my skill was lacking. I would definitely recommend this place to someone looking for a full-body workout that lets you live out your action-movie dreams...
- Pamela P.BYC|YOGA26Oct 19, 2016
Lynne is a simply amazing teacher. She offers incisive corrections to individuals, occasionally demonstrating specific aspects of a posture, but keeping class moving so that the immersive benefits of the 90 meditation are not lost. She has a light touch, sometimes cracking wise, but always instructing from a perspective of compassion and a fine understanding of the workings of the human body.
- Danielle L.Rolling Road VREAug 23, 2016
Amazing workout! A lot of fun and the instructor changes up the routine throughout the workout so that you feel like the 45 minutes goes quickly! I'm happy I joined the class and I'm excited to keep going!
- Katherine DiPietro D.HeartBeats Dance StudioOct 27, 2016
I switched to Piyo from Cardio Boot Camp because of some knee issues and I knew from FitnessFoundations what to expect. Laura mentioned that in Piyo the movements are quicker than we were doing in FitnessFoundations and that is indeed true! I was a little concerned that I would not get any cardio but that is not the case at all!
- Caroline W.ManassasOct 15, 2016
I had wanted to take an Ariel Silks for a really long time. I finally decided to take a class when I found Urban Evolution on the Internet and decided to give it a go. I can certainly say it was a very enjoyable experience. I enjoyed my first class so much, I signed up for the 10-day punch card...
- Fina S.The Studio by Absolute PilatesJan 13, 2017
Attended a free community class and it was great. The instructor was really patient and made certain that we got a workout and a positive beginners Pilates experience. The studio is really lovely too!
- Shawn S.BaltimoreJan 17, 2017
I got a set of rings for my birthday and didn't want to use them before learning how to properly grip them, so I wouldn't hurt my wrists. I contacted Debi Applebee for an hour-long private lesson on the rings, and had so much fun! I learned a ton of exciting tricks and exercises to get me started, and got to see Jeremy show off some really cool advanced maneuvers I can look forward to...
- Joy L.BaltimoreOct 16, 2016
I don't normally write reviews, so that should tell you something about how passionate I am about this gym. When I first officially moved to Baltimore County a couple years ago I didn't have any friends, and lacked motivation and confidence in myself. I found UEB while trying to Google places where I could do flexibility training...
- Joey B.BaltimoreOct 6, 2016
Being the mother of a child with special needs can make finding a place with people who are extra paitent and excepting alot harder. I must say I am totally impressed and completely pleased with the class my son is receiving. The patience and extra care that is given is a nice thing you don't see so often anymore...
- Nelson F.BaltimoreFeb 4, 2017
I absolutely loved my experience today. It was fun, informative and I met some cool people there just starting out like I was. The workouts weren't too intense, but got the blood flowing and the one thing that I liked the most was the focusing on technique. I would recommended this class to anyone who were looking for something different and exciting...
- Leah D.FO Fitness LLCFeb 23, 2017
Kamilah is THE TRUTH! She's more than a personal trainer; she's a life coach. She's making the mind/body merge a reality for me!
- Bruce H.AlexandriaOct 11, 2016
Urban Evolution is not your typical "gym" of machines, televisions, and protein shakes. Whether you're 3 or 103, Urban Evo is the place to be if you want to get active and stay active. I've been a member for a few years and I've always had a pleasant experience. Parkour, gymnastics, UrbanFit, Breakdancing, there's something for everyone to take part in...
- Deborah I.BYC|YOGA26Jan 28, 2017
First hot yoga experience and it was easy to follow along! You sweat A LOT and don't even really notice until you notice yourself dripping! Instructor was very nice
- Janis B.Urban Dance & FitnessAug 22, 2016
I wanted to have a choreographed dance for my wedding, and Tiffany came through for us. We gave her a fairly unconventional song for a wedding -- "Shut Up and Dance" -- and she gave us a wonderful routine to which we dance whenever we hear it at a party.
- Jeneen G.Toys R Us Parking LotSep 20, 2016
absolutely awesome class this morning! Loved the challenging workout and the energy from being with a group of ladies who want to stay fit!!
- Eliza E.AlexandriaJan 19, 2017
We celebrated my son's 8th birthday here and it was his favorite party yet! The staff were great with the kids, spending time explaining the various techniques and working patiently with them. The kids were engaged and had a great time. The best part was the obstacle course that they got to do at the end of the party.
- Crystal B.AlexandriaAug 17, 2016
I took the intro to aerials class and loved it. It was probably one of the physically hardest things I have done all year, and I pretty much failed at many of my attempts. The instructor and her shadow were extremely encouraging, helpful, body positive, and motivating...
- Anne W.HarrisburgOct 12, 2016
So glad Absolute Pilates has a location near me now! This is "real deal" Pilates in a small well-appointed studio with talented and fun instructors. Pilates is the one exercise I have found that truly helps me with my fitness goals.
- Kay W.MechanicsburgDec 7, 2016
I always love doing Pilates with Barbara Watson! She keeps the routines varied, challenging and fun!
- Sharon J.Glatter FitnessOct 20, 2016
Easy going trainers right beside u to push u thru. Love the atmosphere here and getting a full body workout. Great place for the truly dedicated workout geeks. Lol.
- Julia M.AlexandriaDec 11, 2016
We hosted our 8 year old's birthday party here an it was FANTASTIC! The instructors were incredibly good with the kids, the activities were like nothing any of them had done before and all the parents were a little jealous we weren't the ones trying out the obstacle course/foam pit. This place was a home run for our family!
- Amy D.South Run Baptist ChurchJan 8, 2017
So enjoyed the Mental Conditioning seminar. Made me think about things I didn't even realize I should be thinking about :) And kiddos had a great time in the childcare.
- Caitlin B.BaltimoreOct 15, 2016
I've been going to UE for about 10 months now, and I feel like I've been going forever. I felt welcome before I even stepped foot in the gym, when I was arranging to test into L1. I had been taking aerial classes elsewhere, but due to my work schedule and the changing schedule at the previous place, I had to find a new gym...
- Monica P.BaltimoreOct 11, 2016
The staff and instructors are great!! I've done the gymnastcs, aerial silks and parkour classes. I am a frequent visitor of the adult gymnastics classes. The instructors have different teaching styles which cater to a wide variety of learners. I like the urbanized aspect as well with the creative drills set up. It's a great place to work out and improve on form and fitness!
- Lyn B.BaltimoreOct 13, 2016
Urban Evo began for my family as a homeschool physical education outlet, but it has quickly incorporated our entire family. The kids get great motivation and instruction in both parkour and aerials. They were never couch potatoes, but they move with so much more confidence and grace as they enter their second year with Urban Evo...
- Jillian F.Bethesda Boxing & Kickboxing AcademyAug 11, 2016
I LOVE this place. I have been trying out different gyms in the area for a while, and this is the first one that I have really felt excited about. It has challenged me more than I ever have been, which is saying a lot, because a couple of years ago I was training to go into the Marine Corps! I have tried two classes so far, and both of the instructors were incredible...
- Clivia L.HeartBeats Dance StudioFeb 13, 2017
I feel so lucky and blessed to have found PowerFull Fitness! I’m excited to wake up each morning and start my day w/ this group of strong women. Laura and Amanda push me beyond my limits every day and make me laugh while doing it. It’s been 3 months and I’ve seen results everywhere. Their workouts allowed me to find time to take care of myself without sacrificing time away from my family...
- Heather B.Applied Fitness CycleOct 20, 2016
Great cycle studio. I love the 30 mintue class. I tend to burn 400 calories. The bikes are completely unique by moving with your body. Owners and members are super friendly . Plus great music !
- Jenna F.Applied Fitness CycleFeb 16, 2017
I used to spin 3-4 days per week in college, and have truly missed it. I am SO glad I found AFC! I took my first class with them tonight and am already booked to go back Saturday morning. I love that it's a mix of spinning and off the bike exercises. The instructors are loud and lively, which really makes for an enthusiastic and motivating atmosphere. I highly recommend!
- Anna-Regina H.Belin Sport and FitnessJul 21, 2016
It was a tough work out, but Belin is very motivating and pushes you to pull through. The one hour went by fast, and it really brought me to my limits. I attended the cardio boot camp work out today, and I'm excited to see how the other ones will go.
- Lee H.AlexandriaNov 4, 2016
We signed our two pre-teen boys up for Intro to parkour in May. They don't excel in team oriented sports and this seemed like a great outlet for their energy. Watching their first class I thought it looked quite fun and was pretty bored waiting on the sidelines. I commented "how hard could jumping around really be. I really don't enjoy working out but I'm in pretty good shape already”...
- Jessi H.EnolaOct 10, 2016
Love it!!! I've had classes with Jessi and Beth and private sessions with Jessi. I love how they both give the perfect amount of motivation to push hard and the encouragement to try new exercises. Easily my favorite work outs of the week.
- Brad F.AlexandriaJan 25, 2017
My son and I really enjoyed our first visit t Urban Evo for Homeschool Parkour hour. The laid back but high energy of the place was great. He got to expel a lot of energy in new and exciting ways. The location was good and easy to find and there was plenty of parking. The instructor seemed to work well and was able to politely redirect my overly chatty child without making him feel picked on...
- Joseph H.AlexandriaOct 14, 2016
I'm so glad that I finally joined Urban Evo! had 2 great days this week with the intro to Parkour on Wednesday and 3 white band sessions today. The gym itself is chalked full of so many thing and the staff and trainers are beyond friendly and attentive to the needs of all members. And let's not forget to mention how great the members are too...
- Neal W.IN-FIT StudioNov 17, 2016
Five weeks ago I underwent bi-lateral (both) total knee replacement surgery due to chronic, painful arthritis. Today, five weeks later, I am walking with a cane, driving, and totally without pain. I am 65 years old and typically my surgeon would not have approved this major bi-lateral surgery. Because of my level of fitness in my legs and upper body he thought I was a good candidate...
- Tiffany A.Dancensations IncFeb 14, 2017
I am very new to Powerfull Fitness and working out in general, but I took the Early AM Express Kickboxing class with Laura this morning. WOW!! What a workout! I thought I was nearly going to die, but once I realized I was still breathing I felt great. Laura kept the entire class motivated and on beat. She shared some great modifications available to newbies like me...
- Ashley C.South Run Baptist ChurchAug 8, 2016
This class was great because there was total acceptance that everyone is on a different level of fitness! Laura was really great and I learned a lot about form and how to do exercises the best way. I am looking forward to the next class and getting to know everyone more!
- Ashley C.Prince of Peace Lutheran ChurchSep 13, 2016
This is a great location, lots of room for the kids to play and the people from the church were so warm. I took the barre class with Amanda and the strength and tone with Laura. I love both instructors and I learn more and get so energized every time I go!
- Sarah H.BaltimoreJan 28, 2017
I took the intro to parkour class and it was a ton of fun. The owner led the class and he was very understanding and helpful especially when I struggled to get some of the techniques. He was able to break things down a little slower for me and show me ways to improve my strength at home. Parkour is no joke though! I have bruises to prove it...
- Jonathan W.Applied Fitness CycleSep 21, 2016
I am not one to write reviews. I am not an athlete of any kind unless you count chasing after my dog after he has squeezed under the fence. I don't even wash my own car. That would make me sweat, and I don't sweat. Sometimes, I will hold my iPad steady in front of my face for minutes on end, but let's be honest... I have people for that. (Not really.) Having said all that - I love these classes!
- Jeneen G.Honest Soul YogaSep 14, 2016
Loved this class! Exactly what I was looking for in a group class - energy, community, challenging workout, and above all, FUN!
- Kashya D.The Studio CooperativeNov 1, 2016
At 36, to say I thought the idea of learning ballot was insane, but I was determined to make this passion a reality. I was excited to learn that classes were being offered so close to my home with great hours. Once I gathered up enough courage, called and was set up online instantly. The facilty was great, the atmosphere was perfect...
- Elena S.BaltimoreSep 24, 2016
I was at Urban Evolution for a trial class of aerial silks. The place is amazing with a lot of space and great tools, and the people were very friendly, nice and clear about how things work at the gym. There are many different interesting programs, all available to try also with a one-day pass. So just pick one and try, it will be fun!
- Emily W.BaltimoreSep 11, 2016
I took the introductory aerial silks class on 09/11/2016. This was my first time in a class like this, and I am not an athletic or dancer-ish person at all, but the class was really fun and I felt like I got a good idea of what is possible with more practice at aerial silks (climbing = hard), but was also able to do a few basic moves that look cool and to go upside-down...
- Andi C.Applied Fitness CycleSep 24, 2016
The people here are great. The instructors are very energizing and make it easy to get a good workout in. The classes are fun and personalized. All of the people here are so friendly, you can't help but smiling. I recommend the classes for all fitness levels - everyone will get a great workout.
- Michaela R.AlexandriaDec 29, 2016
I just completed the Intro to Parkour class and it was everything I had hoped for! The instructors had clever ways to help me focus on a particular part of the move, which really improved my roll! They had so much energy to teach and critique me! We all improved our skills and had a great time!

Urban Evolution is a fantastic gym to learn a new skill or resurrect old talents. I took the Adult Gymnastics Level 1 class and there was a great camaraderie among the participants. The instructor stressed the importance of proper technique and encouraged us to try but not push ourselves beyond our limits. I was an acrobat during childhood but had not taken a gymnastics class in several years...

I took a class today with Lynette and really enjoyed it. Lynette is knowledgeable, encouraging, and lots of fun. Furthermore, the class has worked. All day long I have felt various parts of my body truly exercised. I'm feeling STRONG- thanks to this morning's class. :)

We hosted my daughter's 11th birthday party here, and it was tremendous fun for her and her friends! The instructors -- Mark and Rebecca -- were superb with the kids: Funny, engaging, encouraging and kind. They were great at showing the kids what to do, using humor to show them which techniques work and which don't...

The aerial silks instructors are so full of knowledge , experience, and creativity. They build such a solid foundation for beginners with conditioning. There is also always something to learn and experience in class no matter what skill level you are!

This is the 2nd birthday party my 10-year old has attended at Urban Evolution in the past couple months, and he's loved his time there both times! If only the location were closer to our house, we'd definitely sign up for parkour classes. The staff is both professional and fun! The space is definitely a cool spot that kids love, teens dig, and parents are fine with all around.

My family goes here every week, usually more than once. My 8yr old daughter and I take Parkour classes and my wife takes Aerial Silks Our 3yr old is best friends with all the instructors too! I'm going to start taking a parent and child silks class too. The people are great and it's really our second home.

An amazing class with an awesome instructor. I am returning after having an umbilical cord hernia repaired and I was floored (but not surprised) at how much Eileen's class has grown. She does an amazing job of providing modifications for all fitness levels. It was a tough class this morning but it was worth every bead of sweat.

I just started attending classes this week , but even now I can say this academy is unique. I have always been into fitness , but to enter a place where both staff and clientele Emily bond and assist each other is quite a refreshing experience. While it may be too soon to determine if the technique sessions will result highly efficient , I certainly convinced this place is accepting and welc
