Jenna Colkitt: A Transplant Milleniall in the CLT Fitness Scene...Say What?!?
Jenna is from Philly - the city of brotherly love. And crazy obnoxious football fans. But she doesn't fall in that category.  Jenna's life took her a different route...corporate marketing that lead her to CLT and then the realization that she had a passion for the fitness industry. She went to work for the local Charlotte sensation SweatNET, coaches our AM classes at Urban MVMNT and is also a trainer at F45. We cut it up with Jeanna and get an insiders perspective to the fitness scene in Charlotte, what works vs. what doesn't and more.

Dan Burdi Is All In on South End with The Mill Co-Working
Dan Burdi is important for two reasons. 1) He's one of Sarah's only friends that she's proven to exist 2) He's an accomplished entrepreneur who amidst several of his successful businesses, decided to create a boutique co-working space in the heart of South End. Dan sits down with the Urban crew and discusses why he decided to open up a smaller, more intimate style co-working space when it seems that the industry giants like WeWork are consuming all the limelight.   He's also very well versed in the city dynamics of Charlotte and shares probably one of the most interesting strategies I've heard to alleviate traffic in the city.  For more info on The Mill Co-Working, check out https://www.themillcoworking.com/

Noble Smoke + The New Joker Movie + Lots of Funnies
Isaac, Deuce and Stu hit up the newest BBQ joint in Charlotte - Noble Smoke. Located in the Wesley Heights neighborhood, which is been quickly on the rise the last several years, this spot is an absolute must for any real BBQ fans. Deuce skools Stu on the differences b/t the origins of NC & SC barbecue sauce while Isaac continuously chews gum in the background.  It's a hoot.   We discuss the new Joker movie and some of the concerns around it's release (Isaac still hasn't seen it yet so don't ruin it), Stu does a hillbilly accent and the crew is unusually giggly.

Isaac + Deuce Share Their Fitness Story
We all have an origin story as to how we got to where we are today.   And some of us have podcasts that you under prepare for so you have to create filler content for the week's upload. That's what this was - we didn't have much to jam on so Isaac, Deuce and Stu got together and Stu interviews Isaac and Deuce as to how they got started working in the fitness industry, their sports background and other random musings.

Mark Madara + The Evolution of Urban MVMNT from the Member Perspective
Mark Madara has logged over 800+ workouts with us dating back to 2105.  He's a staple in our 5:30am class, loves participating in Spartan Races and has gone to more Dave Matthews Band concerts than most people alive (at leave more than anyone we've ever known). But Mark's tenure not only comes with us developing a great relationship with this guy, but he is able to bring a unique perspective since he has witness our evolution as fitness brand here in CLT. I think you'll find his insight really interesting and the banter between him and Deuce is pretty entertaining as well.
