Mini Course: What Makes Urbankick Unique?
Learn why the Urbankick format and philosophy creates a cutting edge, athletic workout that is great for all demographics. Urbankick is not a pre-choregraphed workout. Our trademark puzzle piece class design model helps create the best cardio kick class around by providing a structure that can be replicated along with a philosophy to support the instructor and class participants alike.

"I completed the Urbankick online training course 110% ready to teach my own class. Shane's videos are clear, concise and easy to follow. I also appreciated the opportunity to receive thoughtful, personalized feedback--something that is not always easy to get in a one-day training workshop. The ability to go at your own pace through the course is a huge plus, and I learned tips and techniques that I've already applied to additional formats I teach. Proud to be a part of the Urbankick family!" -- Carolyn Mues, Graduate of Online Cardio Kickboxing Instructor Training
