Do you want to be a part of a fitness community? Would you like to take your training to the next level? Or would you like to simply unwind by immersing yourself in Yoga? Then look no further than Urth Fitness!
What is Urth Fitness I hear you ask? Well, as the Club Manager, I am proud to be able to now tell you all about it!
Urth Fitness has been established by Newcastle's Rosekelly family, who founded the successful health and fitness club Planet Fitness back in 1994. With over twenty years experience within the fitness industry, the Rosekelly family have made Planet Fitness a household name in Newcastle. Planet Fitness
now has 4 prominent locations within the Hunter and Central Coast regions, plus one in Casula.
However, the family has now embarked on a slight twist in the journey; that is, Urth Fitness. A unique health and fitness club, Urth Fitness allows members to be involved in an active community by having a smaller member base.
Urth Fitness has contracted the rights to include the incredible 'Powercamp' Functional Training facilities to enable members to be involved in a program that has been designed specifically for excellent results and is performance focused; using a healthy range of movements that will be performed under the supervision of our experienced, specialised trainers.
What is Functional Training?
Functional training involves participants completing a range of exercises that will allow for activities performed on a daily basis to be less strenuous on the body and therefore lowering the risk of sustaining injuries. This type of training predominately targets muscle groups and joints that promote the function of both stabilisation and mobility.
There are three main key groups of stability training; the abdominals (core strength), the hip abductors and rotators and the scapula stabiliser. Functional training is also utilised for sport specific training, due to isolated exercises focusing on the improvement of the skills necessary to be successful in each chosen sport. Since functional training has been introduced to the industry, results have shown a proven increase in the performance of athletes in their chosen field.
Our staff and in particular our Personal Trainers have been handpicked to provide exceptional service to our Urth members.
With many years experience in the fitness industry, we have been able to gain an understanding of the many reasons people attend fitness centres. With this information, Urth Fitness aims to create a club that meets your needs in a welcoming and community focused environment.
Our state of the art facility will also offer members the chance to unwind, break away from the daily grind and come back down to Urth through the many forms of Yoga that will be available at Urth Fitness.
New to Yoga?
Do you suffer from back pain, muscle strains, stress tension and even anxiety? Yoga is for you! It doesn't matter if you know the lingo or not – our instructors will be there to guide you through each movement of the class.
There are so many benefits to practising Yoga. These include increased flexibility and muscle strength, improved posture, preventing cartilage and joint breakdown, protecting your spine, improving bone health and increasing blood flow. As a result, you will experience a decreased risk of high blood pressure and heart disease, helping to drain your lymphs and boost your immunity.
I am sure there are many of you reading this and nodding your heads to one or more of the conditions mentioned above, so I encourage you to come along and try our mind easing, soul calming classes. The team is excited for the doors to open and for members to start enjoying a whole new world of fitness; we welcome you to the Urth experience!
