Coaching + Training + Nutrition + Recovery + Support = RESULTS!

2. When are Workout Classes Offered?
Underground Fitness Revolution’s Metabolic EXPRESS Training classes run Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 am, 12:00 pm, 4:30pm, 5:30 pm, or 6:30 pm – By Appointment Only (2-3 sessions per week for 3 weeks = 6-9 total sessions). Additional training sessions available during off-weeks for a discounted rate.

We offer a convenient training location in the City of Alachua:

Metabolic EXPRESS Training at Underground Fitness Revolution:
14911 Main Street, Suite 102
Alachua, FL 32615

Arrival Time: Your fitness coach will arrive on location and open the doors 10-15 minutes before the official start of the workout. This is a time to discuss any questions, comments or concerns with the on-site fitness trainer before the start of the workout.

Please know that our main focus is keeping our UFR members safe and healthy. Thus, each class begins with a complete, state-of-the-art warm-up emphasizing corrective exercises, mobility, and activation to best prevent unwanted injury and to allow for a more effective workout. Members who are chronically tardy are missing a crucial component of our training sessions to help prevent injury and prepare the body for the work to come.

Departure Time: Your fitness coach will remain for an extra 10-15 minutes following the completion of each session to address any remaining personal questions or concerns.

Members are also highly encouraged to use this time to perform their post-workout routine consisting of corrective stretching and self-massage to best prevent nagging aches and pains and reduce soreness between workouts. However, this program caters to busy professionals, and we do understand if you need to leave immediately at the end of each workout. In this case, members are expected to perform their post-workout routines at another time for best results.

3. I Have Never Worked Out Before and/or I Have Injuries and/or I Am Extremely Overweight. Can I Still Join Underground Fitness Revolution?
Absolutely! That is the reason why we have modifications to help provide the flexibility, mobility, stability, strength, and conditioning you need. No matter what your ability level is no participant will be left behind or asked to complete more than they are capable of doing safely. It would be extremely irresponsible for us to do otherwise. We specialize in exercise modifications so that a beginner or advanced member can workout within their fitness level. There may be a rare case where this isn’t the best program for some people in their current state, and we will gladly refer you to someone better suited to your needs.

Underground Fitness Revolution specializes in providing challenging workouts for people at any level and at the same time. A 66-year-old with joint, knee or back issues can work side-by-side with a 16-year-old athlete in the same group, and both will be challenged at their own fitness level.

4. Will I Experience Muscle Soreness?
Yes. The initial phase of adding resistance training to your exercise program will cause muscle soreness. And because we change our training programs every four weeks to keep your body from adapting, you may experience new muscle soreness each time. To help with muscle soreness, we provide Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) and Corrective Stretching Strategies before (and after) every session as well as nutritional guidelines and pre- and post-workout supplementation recommendations to help your body recover from intense workouts.

5. How Soon Will I See Results?
Your results will vary based on your commitment to your training and nutrition program. In addition to not missing training sessions, you’ll need to follow a fat-burning nutritional plan to reach your goals. Members can feel great results in as short as one week and see visual changes within a few weeks. Many of our UFR members lose 3-10 pounds and 1-4 inches in the first month. Some have lost more than 20lbs in less than three months and more than 40-50lbs in six months. In order to see maximal results, you will need to adhere to our nutritional program and attend all workouts.

6. Is There a Nutrition Program Involved?
Yes! The most important component of any fitness and fat-loss program is nutrition because more than 80 percent of your body comp goals are directly related to what you eat. Our goal is not to overwhelm, but rather to ease you into adopting healthier dietary habits for long-term success. We provide you with the tools to get started on the right track toward a complete health and fitness transformation. This includes simple done-for-you meal plans and our “protein, produce, healthy fats and water” guidelines that follow the Primal Blueprint, Paleo,
or the Whole 30.

We are also an Independent Team Beachbody Coach and highly recommend Shakeology to replace one meal each day for weight loss, improved digestion, increased energy, convenience, and improved health. Yes, this one addition to your nutritional plan can make all the difference in the world as it has for many of our UFR members.

7. Isn’t Steady-State Cardio Better for Fat Burning?
Research and real-world experience show that steady-state cardio (aerobic training typically performed for 30 minutes or longer at a slow-to-moderate intensity) doesn’t burn as much body fat or calories, doesn’t raise your metabolism after training, and doesn’t build muscle mass or strength like total-body metabolic resistance training.

Although steady-state cardio training can be a part of a general health and fitness program, it doesn’t provide the same benefits as total-body metabolic resistance training, cardio strength training, or high-intensity interval training. In addition, without the components of nutrition and total-body metabolic resistance training, you will not build lean muscle (which turns your body into a fat-burning machine).

We provide every member with metabolic-boosting training programs that don’t require traditional steady-state cardio (jogging, biking, elliptical, etc.). Our Metabolic EXPRESS Training program includes the cardio and conditioning you’ll need to increase your metabolism, burn fat, build muscle, AND remain healthy and fit.

8. Will I Get Enough Individual Attention During the Group Fitness Coaching Sessions?
Yes! Our small group fitness coaching format allows us to get to know you and give more personal service unlike large boot camps, gyms, “Boxes,” or health clubs that have many clients and treat you like a number. You will get all the coaching, motivation, guidance, instruction, education and support that you need.

We are ALWAYS here to answer any questions or concerns about anything related to your training, nutrition or supplementation. Most one-on-one personal training sessions consist of the trainer and client just spending most of the time talking about their personal lives and the trainer wastes even more time counting reps.

9. Will You Yell At Us?
Yes, there will be yelling involved – but only in a motivating and healthy manner and to provide instruction and correction. We don’t abuse, harass, or degrade – we provide positive reinforcement and encouragement. And, of course, a few good jokes and fun.

10. What Do I Bring to Underground Fitness Revolution?
A positive attitude and a willingness to work hard and challenge yourself to get better each and every time you train. We provide all the equipment you’ll need for training.

We recommend that you bring a towel and refillable water bottle (and shaker cup for your pre- and post-workout drink). For greater success and at-home workouts on “off” days, we ask that every member make the one-time investment in a Grid 2.0 (Trigger Point – 12″ x 6″) foam roller and tennis ball while using our at-home recovery and regeneration program during “off” days and Recovery Weeks.

11. What Do I Wear to Underground Fitness Revolution?
Wear comfortable, soft, breathable materials. Avoid anything too big and baggy – it makes it difficult to properly analyze your posture and positioning during exercise so we can best assess your form and technique and make the necessary corrections. Wear athletic shoes like Innov8, New Balance Minimus, Nike Free, Vibram Five Fingers or shoes with soles that are flat and low to the ground (no platform-like soles or “shape-up” shoes with rounded bottoms).

12. What If I Can’t Make a Training Session?
We recommend and encourage ALL of our coaching clients to perform some sort of activity they enjoy on off days or Recovery Weeks. We provide all of our coaching clients with a variety of short (15-20 minute), intense, at-home and on the road workouts that can be performed with little-to-no equipment. Also, we offer additional training sessions during Recovery Weeks at a discounted rate throughout the year.

In addition, as a Beachbody Coach, many of our fellow UFR members follow a Beachbody training program such as Focus T25 or P90X3 on “off” days and in the morning to further enhance their results.

Remember: Our program is a monthly membership-based fitness program. ALL sessions must be used within each three-week phase of training. Unused sessions DO NOT carry over to the next month or phase of training and there are NO refunds even if you miss a session due to work, travel, sickness, etc. You can double up to make up a missed session or fill in the gaps with a Beachbody program recommended by us (22 Minute Hard Corps, P90X3, 21-Day Fix, Focus T25, Body Beast, PiYo, etc.).

13. How is This Different Than Those Other Group Fitness Programs?
First and foremost, we provide professional fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle coaching. We don’t stand around counting reps or asking you how your weekend was while you’re in the middle of an exercise. We watch and critique exercise technique and provide exercise modifications as needed. Our goal is to teach you proper form and technique and help you progress to more challenging exercises as your Superhero abilities and powers increase.

We also have an indoor facility with a ton (literally) of equipment including kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, sandbags, medicine balls, resistance bands, sleds, battle ropes, and more. This is one of the biggest things that separates Underground Fitness Revolution from the typical group fitness class or boot camp that doesn’t use equipment and may only be held outdoors or makes clients run around for an hour performing exercises not yet ideal for an overweight or out-of-shape member.

We restrict the size of our sessions to 12-15 members. This allows us to get to know you better and give more personal service unlike large boot camps, gyms, “Boxes,” or health clubs that have many clients and treat you like a number. You will get all the coaching, motivation, guidance, instruction, accountability, and support that you need.

We work hard to provide you more value for your membership than any other gym, fitness center, “Box,” personal trainer, group fitness program, or boot camp offers at an affordable price while helping you achieve your health and fitness goals.

We specialize in exercise modifications so that a beginner or advanced member can workout within their fitness level.

We offer short, time-efficient and effective Metabolic EXPRESS Training sessions to get you maximum results in minimal time so you can get on with your busy day!

14. How Often Can I Attend?
For the best results, we suggest that you attend at least 3 days a week. However, we do offer a 2x/week membership. See our membership offerings, rates, days and times
HERE!

15. Can I Pay Per Workout or Just When I Come?
Although your best results will come from training consistently with us 3x/week, we do offer a drop-in/per session rate of $20 (+ tax) for those who are unable to make 6-9 sessions during each three-week phase of training due to work, vacation, or other commitments.
