How to Know if UPCF is a Good Fit

by Michael Plank

We love our community and we love what we do. But we also believe that finding the right fit for your training is super important. Not every gym is right for every person. So just in case you’re looking, here’s what we’re like at UPCF…

Our gym is NOT the best for people who want to put in their earbuds, watch a show on the monitors, and do their own thing.

We’re the best for people who want to be greeted by name every time they walk through the door, want someone to check on them if they haven’t been in that week, and want to feel like they belong to something bigger than themselves.

We are NOT the best for people who are unwaveringly serious about fitness.

We’re the best for people who understand that not every day is perfect; for people who can laugh and joke; for people who have days where anything is better than nothing and sometimes their only goal isn’t to crush the workout, it’s just to keep going.

We are NOT the best for people who have it all together.

We’re the best for people who sometimes finish a hard workout and find themselves crying; for people who find out that on this fitness journey there are some mental and emotional hurdles to get through too; for people who get anxious sometimes and who get sad sometimes.

We are NOT the best for people looking for mirrors and weight machines. We’re NOT the best for people looking for tanning beds and saunas. We’re NOT the best for air conditioning.

We’re the best for people who are looking for coaching: for someone to learn and understand your goals, help you chart a path, and then walk with you on your journey and keep you on that path. Developing coaching skills is the main thing we invest our resources in. Everything else is secondary.

We are NOT the best for fitness competitors.

We’re the best for regular people – moms, dads, entrepreneurs, teachers, professionals – who want to be in the best shape of their lives.

Our gym is not the best for everyone.

But we might be the best for you.
