Founder of Urban Gladiators – BenjaBenny promin Bartel


Urban Gladiators grew out of a desire to create a trainings paradigm that combined exclusively natural and functional movements. Essentially, we wanted to re-instill fitness’ lost everyday applicability.

Drawing on various athletic disciplines including martial artsgymnastics, athletics, olympic weightlifting, as well as exercises specifically taken from functional training, we developed a training program that allows the amateur athlete to greatly improve their performance without risking overloading.

Alongside achievement, we put fun front and center. The group, team effort and a friendly atmosphere are all important for athletic motivation. For this reason we work in small and manageable groups of max. 12 people. This creates a personal feel and lets us provide a high level of individual care.
