Business Awards: Urban Jungle launches new shop selling fitness supplements and sportswear

Fitness company Urban Jungle has teamed up with online sport and nutrition specialists Renegade Supplements to open a new shop.[1]

The firm has launched the new venture at its base at the old Town Hall, in Fenton, as part of an ongoing investment programme.

Urban Jungle was launched in 2016 by Simon Dyer as an alternative way of training and exercise, focusing on strength and fitness workouts.

Now the company is entering The Sentinel Business Awards[2] in the Small Business of the Year category, sponsored by Beswicks Legal.

Simon said: “We sell a lot of clothes, before we had to get them printed and order them in. At the same time, we offer our clients advise on nutrition and healthier ways of living.

“So we decided to bring everything in house to allow us to provide an all-round service.”

The new store boasts a range of fitness wear as well as supplements used to help aid recovery after a workout and healthy snacks.

Simon Dyer, founder of Fenton-based fitness company Urban Jungle

Simon said: “One thing we have learned over the last 12 to 18 months is that while people have made the effort to change their way of life, they cannot change overnight which means they are still looking for things like crisps and chocolate bars to snack on – that’s why we are offering a healthier alternative.”

Today, Urban Jungle has 750 members and 16 in-house trainers which stage 32 classes a week, but the number of classes is set to double over the next 12 months with the introduction of spinning, squatting, dance and street fighter classes.

Simon added: “Over the last couple of years we have been focusing on our four-year business plan which is working really well.”

“We have also worked hard on establishing and building our brand and at the moment every penny we make is being re-invested back into the business.”

Tip: Bottom-Up Bulgarian Split Squat

[embedded content]

The Bulgarian split squat is a great single-leg squat variation to build strength and size in your lower body and also address imbalances between the left leg and the right leg. It will show its strength the more load you can lift. In our training we use it as a squat variation and we also do singles.

In order to be able to progress the load, you need to have a stable base on the ground. Too often you see people not having this stable base, which leads to:

  • Not being able to achieve full depth
  • An inconsistent movement pattern (every rep looks different)
  • Not being able to handle the loads you could possibly handle

How Can This Be Solved?

Start from the bottom up. This helps you to get comfortable with the bottom position. Once you’re comfortable with the bottom position and have consolidated your movement pattern, the weights you’ll be able to lift will follow.

As a rule of thumb, I’ve found that my athletes are able to use 80-90% of their back squat weight for the same amount of reps. For example, if they can do 3 reps of back squat at 200 kg, they can do 3 reps of 160-180 kg in the Bulgarian split squat.

No, you won’t be able to achieve the same depth in the Bulgarian split squat as in the back squat. However, if you standardize the back squat depth and the Bulgarian split squat depth, it’s a valid relation.

So, get the technique right first, get comfortable with the bottom position, and you’ll soon be able to load up the weight.
