We Care. A LOT.

Inside of our #UTSFam, we have a group of AMAZING humans who love supporting each other and this community we live in, as we all try to improve ourselves daily.

A NEVERENDING MISSION

“Here at Unlimited Training Systems, we exist to serve as a stimulating influence to our members, our community, and ourselves, through CONSTANT physical and mental evolution.”

^As the owner of UTS, I have obsessed over and chased this very mission since we opened in 2011, daily standing by our values that make us more than just a gym. I wanted to find a way to help all the incredible humans around us that make up this short but special opportunity we call life to through more than just weights, physical challenges, and numbers on a scale.

For me, and now for us as a member family, that means serving our community in any way we can, whether that be through bringing awareness to a problem, raising money for a cause, or simply bringing people together to engage in conversation about movements and topics that help influence our community in a positive manner.

Supporting Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of East Tennessee at Our Upcoming “Lift for Lungs” Workout

“Seeing up close what day to day life is like for someone with cystic fibrosis has changed my perspective on a disease that desperately needs a cure. from what seems like non stop treatments and medications, to constant worry of how the weather or other people’s germs will affect her lung function on that particular day…to seeing the amount of effort that must go into the amount of physical work i take for granted. what kayla pushes through is nothing short of amazing.” -Blake Denny, owner of UTS.

Partnering with the local Knoxville Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis foundation is near and dear to our hearts here for obvious reasons. They represent one our FOUR charities that we support every single year, and with our Third Annual “Lift for Lungs” workout, we hope to continue the tradition with more money raised than ever.

Kayla’s story, while truly inspiring, is also one of many throughout the world that suffer from a disease that is still without a cure, and represents one of the more expensive and highly attentive daily routines necessary to stay in good health.

From breathing treatments to a large amount of medications, it requires its own schedule in and of itself, in addition to the every day duties of being a working individual. Luckily, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is an incredible organization that funnels a large majority of money raised directly back into research, in hopes of continuing to improve treatment, and one day find a cure.

Every dollar helps along with simply raising awareness and standing (or working out) in support of an awesome human, among many, that needs our help.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A brief intro into our Charity Events

 

We have a saying here at UTS: “Anyone can make you tired, not everyone can make you better.”

True to our principles of training, we want every person that walks in the red and gray walls of the 202 to walk away feeling like they did one of three things:

  • Learned something about how to move better or become stronger

  • Learned more about themselves both in finding their own limits, or understanding and appreciating their abilities.

  • Had a powerful moment.

^The cool thing about our Charity events is the entire premise is based on number three: we are trying to give powerful moments to people, causes, and charities through our support and understanding of what they go through on a daily basis.

Now, how do we do this in a workout? Here is what you can expect:

  1. An intro to the other awesome humans showing up in support, from a few icebreakers questions to get us all flowing, followed by a quick drill we use to drive some team work and get to know your fellow exercisers.

  2. A quick discussion and demonstration regarding the charity we are supporting, from introductions to special guests, to a quick rundown of what the charity is all about.

  3. We then warmup as a crew, utilizing many of the very movements we use with our #UTSFam daily. Helping you get your joints feeling great, exploring some ranges of motion, and ultimately preparing you for the work to come.

  4. After a little increase in heart rate and blood flow, its time to divide up into groups and hit the workout for the day. From exercise scavenger hunts, to team challenges, to sometimes getting a taste of our Solidarity Saturday workouts we use in our programs, you will see and experience a variety of workouts with expert attention from our coaches and some fellow #UTSFam.

  5. Finish up, high five, and hang around. Each event has its own flavor, with food, music, or shenanigans involved, we encourage you to hang around and meet other people supporting an awesome cause. You never know, you may just find a new friend!
