I was in Vancouver to work for a year, and signed up to stay in shape. At the year’s mark, my body physique completely changed, I had tight 6-pack and oblique muscles, strong and fast punches, increased core strength and hence balance. All of which are great building blocks for my other hobbies and activities. I owe it to a consistently motivated instructor and class. Being surrounded by them kept me positive and energetic, of particular relevance to Vancouver’s dark winters. Most important of all, created was a social environment of great friends that became like family.
I’ve been taking Eric’s class for almost 4 years, and I have to say it is definitely one of the best workouts out there!! His classes challenge you both mentally and physically as he pushes you to limits that you never thought that you could achieve! The classes are always fun and never repetitive like other kickboxing boot camp classes I’ve tried. A great instructor and a great group of people to workout with!
I really recommend taking one of his classes, you will not be disappointed!

If you have been looking for something new to add to your fitness routine or something fun and motivating to get you started on that New Years resolution you know you made months ago (about getting healthier and fitter this year) then Urban Health Club has everything you need. I feel so empowered after a heart pumping cardio kick boxing class. Eric Marcina is an engaging instructor who does focus on technique without drowning you in the monotomy of simple repetitions. It is all about getting a great workout. In the end, you will be impressed with what you accomplish ….just when you thought you couldn’t do one more squat, kick, or jab… you do ! The group class environment is awesome. You decide how far you can push and the energy in the room gives you that extra burst you need to feel great about your workout.

I love this kickboxing class! Eric Marcina delivers the right blend of high tempo cardio drills, challenging boxing techniques, and a toning & strengthening component to really make you sweat. After two years of taking Eric’s classes, I’ve never looked or felt better. He’ll push you harder than you ever thought possible and you’ll love every minute of it. Its fun, its effective, and you’ll be back for more!

A great opportunity to really improve your fitness, stamina and ability. You’ll find Eric’s style of instructing teaches you to push yourself to keep going. The new gym is in a great location, and combined with many years of experience, is very much worth trying.

I’ve been taking the bootcamp for a couple years now and have noticed a huge difference in my stamina, endurance and mostly my shape. I’m so excited to see the instructor has opened his own gym offering not only kickboxing bootcamps but also the chance to try pilates, yoga and even group fitness. I totally recommend.

I have tried lots of types of fitness classes in the past, but nothing can compare to Eric’s kickboxing bootcamp classes. The classes are fun, innovative and challenging. You will shred pounds and get in shape fast!!! After taking the classes for a year, my fitness level has improved significantly. I can run faster, I can hold my yoga poses longer, my muscles are more defined and best of all that my energy level has never been better! I am so excited to see Eric is opening up his own health club that not only offer kickboxing classes but also other fun classes like Yoga and Zumba. I cannot wait to try out all the classes!!!
If you are looking for a fun, motivating, and dynamic way to get and stay in shape, look no further! Eric Marcina is about as good as it gets as far as fitness instructors go…he will help you find your edge, and give you that extra boost to work just a bit harder so you always challenge yourself – mentally and physically. I’m super excited for his new fitness centre, and can’t wait to try all of the different classes and find new ways to keep pushing beyond those mental boundaries that we all succumb to. Highly recommended!!
I’ve always thought that I was quite fit until I took Eric’s class for the first time. Not only was it extremely challenging but totally rewarding. I’ve been taking Eric’s classes for over 2 years now and trust me when I say that there is no other person better suited to help you achieve your goals. Whether your goal is: weight loss, body sculpting or total body fitness, there is no better place to go than Urban Health Club.
If you’re looking for something different, fun, and a great workout, look no further! The workouts at Urban health Club will challenge you but provide great results. Combining kickboxing-style moves with conditioning and cardio, I found this workout to be one of the best around. The new space is also amazing! I recommend this club to anyone looking for a great workout in a fun, friendly environment!
I have been in Eric’s class for 5 years and I am without a doubt in better shape in my forties than my twenties. Every class pushes you past your limits. You can accomplish more than you can imagine thanks to Eric’s excellent leadership. As far as instructor’s go he is top notch and he will help you achieve all your goals as long as you put in the hard work.
Do yourself a favor and sign up at Urban Health Club and change the way you look and feel. You won’t be disappointed!!
