Urban Evolution is the perfect place to organize a group outing in the Washington, D.C. area. We specialize in great birthdays, but if you’re looking for something different for your church, temple, business, or just a small group of friends, contact us and we’ll help you get a discounted rate and put together the greatest event for your group possible!
You can also book using this link and then clicking on “Private Group Events.”
We typically host events on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-12pm and 6pm-8pm. We can also do daytime options and you can do that by emailing [email protected]
If you’d like to see pictures and videos of our facility and of other events we’ve hosted at Urban Evolution, check out our Facebook page (no account needed)!
We’ve put together great events almost every weekend now for many years for bachelor and bachelorette parties, law firms, groups of friends looking to train for an event, and birthday parties for kids of all ages (6 to 55, really!).*
We typically do fun parkour-based activities starting with individual techniques and then building up to an obstacle course, with tons of instructor interaction and coaching to help everyone out. We allow customers to bring in food, and we have some folding tables you can use to set up or serve food.**
If you’d like to plan a birthday that includes something other than Parkour (Aerials, Breakdancing, etc), we can accomodate you for an extra flat $100 fee. You’ll need to make sure to mention this in the “notes” section when you book online, or simply mention it when you speak to the representative on the phone or via email.
Birthdays and other events are typically held on weekends after 6pm. We have limited time slots for private events (the gyms are busy!), and they tend to fill up quickly, so don’t delay!
You can reserve a time slot at least 7 days in advance* by using our online scheduler.
*If you are looking for a date within 7 days, e-mail [email protected] to check availability. We do sometimes have last-minute cancellations and availability.

What are you waiting for? Plan your next birthday or corporate event at the most awesome fitness experience in the DC Metro area! Let Urban Evolution make your event unique, amazing, exciting…and a great workout, too! Email [email protected] for more information and to start planning your next event!
*We do suggest that planners try and keep the “age spread” of a group relatively small; there’s a big difference between what a 6-year-old can do alongside a 13-year-old, for instance, and what’s challenging to the former isn’t going to be quite as fun for the latter.

Weather and Cancellation Policy: In the event of adverse weather that requires you to reschedule or Urban Evolution to close the gyms (due to unsafe road conditions or other weather-related issues, for instance), we will work with you to reschedule your event at the next available date that suits your schedule. There’s no charge for rescheduling, but the gyms do tend to book up well in advance. If you choose to cancel the event entirely, you can receive your full deposit back if you notify us at least 2 weeks in advance of the event.
