Steps from the SkyTrain, limbs reach toward the clouds and footsteps simulate thunderstorms? rumbles. Inside Urban Fitness Club, exercisers perform these ancient yoga poses and Latin-inspired dance moves as they admire downtown?s nature and architecture. As fun and buoyant as a bounce castle filled with helium, motivating instructors impart these moves during classes for students of all skill levels and body types. Boot camps, one of the club?s specialties, challenge cadets with a series of bodyweight exercises such as planks and burpees, which may be interspersed with cardio challenges such as step-ups and jump-rope drills.

The brand new Urban Fitness Club in South Granville is located on the corner of Granville and 6th Ave., and boasts more than 1,500 sq. ft. of training area with ample free or metered parking nearby.

At age 18, Hadj Gill was a professional boxer with a 33-1 fight record in North America. He spent nine years in the pro circuit before seguing his boxing experience into a new athletic career: personal training. Gill inspires other athletes with the same motivational techniques that kept him competitive on the circuit, tweaking his boxing workouts to incorporate plyometrics moves that help build fast-twitch muscle. These tweaks have evolved into his signature workout system, Grind, which he teaches at Grind Athletix. Grind workouts focus on speed-training, cardio, or lower-body-toning plyometrics, such as lunges, hops, and other explosive movements that emulate the feeling of leaping away from a snake pit. Gill motivates his charges by working out right next to them and switches routines up in order to stave off workout boredom.
