Under Armour Performance Center

Welcome to the Under Armour Performance Center at Headquarters in Baltimore, MD. Executives in marketing say the goal is to make sure employees stay fit at all costs. If you are surrounded by active energy and the requisite facilities are omnipresent, then the likelihood of maintaining fitness goals will become a permanent mindset. The platform includes group classes such as spinning, a boxing studio, strength training equipment, cardio machines and an outdoor turf field overlooking the water for individual skills and drills.

The Performance Center is also open to the public and of course visiting athletes. Hopefully the next Fit Fathers “Social Workout” will take place here. Stay tuned!

The instructor was challenging and demanded the same level of energy from everyone. Though I thought I was in moderate physical shape, this initiation was very challenging to say the least. However, I continued going the rest of that summer and later that fall I purchased a road bike to help improve my ride endurance. [Read more…]
