New Faces + New Schedule

Welcome New Coaches

As we say goodbye to James & Trent, we're hoping to ease the pain a little by announcing that we have some familiar faces taking on the title of UB Coach!


Colleen Fotsch

Colleen has long been an inspiration to the UB community, and we're thrilled to announce that she will begin to take on both CrossFit and Level 2 classes in addition to her current Barbell WOD class. Colleen is an Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach at Cal Berkeley, a Regional-level CrossFit athlete, and competes on the San Francisco Fire GRID team. To  say we're excited to add her to our team is an understatement.



Spencer Moorman

We're also excited to announce that Spencer will be our new evening Oly coach! Spencer is a 2-time national champion, on the USA World Team, and also one of the most brutally honest and entertaining coaches you'll experience. We love the energy he brings to the gym, and a weekly opportunity to be coached by him is not to be missed!


New Schedule starting Monday

In light of our staff changes, you might have expected we'd do some schedule rescheduling, but you probably won't have guessed what we have in store. We are not cutting back - in fact, we are adding classes! We're excited to add regular beginners classes, as well as a second Level 2 class.

Until Kristin takes her leave, we've decided to give her free rein during her Friday evening classes. That means that classes will be "Newman Specials". Expect some fun, unusual movements!

Here's a sneak peek of the schedule. It will take effect next week, on Monday, October 5th - you'll see the changes reflected in our class sign-ups later this week.

Olivia's athletic origins lie in gymnastics and circus arts. After finding CrossFit in 2007, she became obsessed, and three years later left her IT career and opened United Barbell. Olivia is particularly passionate about helping people new to fitness to find joy in their growing athletic abilities.
