Strive & Uplift virtual classes are small-group training sessions based on getting stronger, more injury-resistant, as well as upping sport performance for athletes – all done virtually using Zoom! The atmosphere is fun and focused, and there is a lot of talk about how the movements we do help accomplish your goals.

Coaches focus on providing individualized attention, including any modifications you need to get the most out of your training. We also focus on cultivating a tight-knit community with genuine connections with your fellow classmates!

All our virtual classes can be done without the use of specialized equipment, including the Strength from Home classes.

Check our schedule for current class offerings, and see class descriptions and information on how to participate below. We’re adapting to these strange times, so let us know if there’s something you’d like to see!

Your first time “at” our gym – including virtually – is FREE, so find a class you’re interested in and check us out!

“I’m really grateful to Ren and the S+U coaches for getting a regular schedule of online classes going. They’ve helped me combat a serious lack of motivation. Having a set time to and a fun group of people to work out with was what I needed to get going again. While I really miss the gym and seeing and working out with friends this is a nice substitute. Plus it’s fun to get a peek at everyone’s makeshift home gyms. Technically everything has worked well with Zoom and the lack of equipment doesn’t get in the way of a good workout.” – Ben G.

“I have really been enjoying the online classes with Strive & Uplift!  There is the same community vibe as when we meet in person. This really helps with the current state of things, to feel connected.  I thought the weight training classes would be easier – but nope! Still the same great workout! And the core and mobility classes at lunchtime are a great way to move midday and keep you going for the rest of the day!” – Stephanie B.

“The virtual classes have been so great and helpful! I’m serious about getting strong but it’s been impossible to find the motivation to work out solo at home. The classes make me feel good, they’re super easy to modulate to different fitness levels and they’re just fun. S&U is pretty much the only gym I’ve been to where I have a good time during the class and feel strong/ accomplished afterward. I’ve been recommending the virtual classes to tons of people. Thanks for staying open during stressful times and making it work!” -Nikita M.

Members-Only Class

We consider everyone who has a punch card, a monthly membership, or participates in personal training to be a “member”! Midday Movement classes are open to those with a membership or punch card and are considered “free” and will not deduct a visit from your plan or punch card! Come move with us!
