The Urban Kings Gym – The Unlimited Experience
Last week saw the launch of Urban King's gym, a luxurious space dedicated to the mixed martial arts situated in Kings Cross. The gym is not only about conditioning and fitness of the martial arts but also aimed at members who want uncompromising athleticism but don't want to compromise on their surroundings, Urban Kings hosts state-of-the-art equipment, as well as beautiful changing areas and relaxation facilities. BSF was invited to take a personal tour around the complex before any of the guests arrived for the evening, giving us a chance to view the equipment and see the experts at work. The gym is spread across two floors and provides it's members with one-to-one training in Thai Boxing, MMA, K1, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing and Wrestling.
The different levels of training does not only provide training for those who are thinking about entering the world of martial arts but it also improves balance, posture and tones the body. You can also learn about self defence, with specialised training sessions, with classes offered in Abs, Body Conditioning and a Ladies Work-Fit Class. A full-size (19') boxing ring features in the main work-out area, as well as 12 punch bags, hanging at varying levels from the ceiling, a cage wall and two large dojo areas.
Members are encouraged to fine-tune their physique with challenging equipment including:
- Monkey Bars
- Cable Machines
- Olympic Lifting Area
The audio system plays out motivating music while you exercise and a full size projector fills one of the walls, screening fights, films and music videos.
Urban Kings will have you toned up, in shape and doing kick ass moves this summer.
