The new Uptown Hub located off the Greenway is offering $5 group workouts in the green space across the street.

“It’s something we add on to help our clients get results,” said Coach Nate Fears.

Following the workouts, participants receive a shake inside.

The hub offers shots of aloe and water, flavored teas, and shakes in flavors like thin mint and banana caramel. Products come from the nutrition company Herbalife. The shakes include 24 grams of protein, 200 calories and 21 vitamins and minerals.

Fears said there are no contracts or membership fees associated with the workouts.

“We’re just here to have fun,” he said.

Uptown Hub is collectively operated by several “coaches” who offer personalized nutrition assessments for losing weight and gaining muscle and energy.

“I didn’t understand the importance of nutrition until I got results,” Fears said. “People are so busy running around, they forget to eat.”

Every four-six weeks, customers can participate in body transformation challenges, contributing money into a pot with prizes for the winners.
