What is Urban Evolution?

Urban Evolution was founded in 2010 by Salil and Malikah Maniktahla in Alexandria VA, just outside Washington DC, with the capital from our retirement fund as seed money. We opened our second location in 2012 in Manassas location, our first franchise in 2013, relocated our original Alexandria facility to a new facility in 2014, got pregnant, had twins in 2016, relocated our Manassas facility to Sterling VA in 2017, and are now in the process of opening our first international franchise in Kuwait in 2018!


In other words, we don’t believe in sitting still.


We DO believe in having a good time while working out! We think the most effective ways to get in shape involve doing things your body was meant to do, and doing it in a way that’s actually fun. It’ll be hard work, and you’ll get sweaty. But our brand of fitness will help you do things better in the real world.


And after you train with us, you’ll see the world differently. You’ll see opportunities and excitement; we take the limits away until all that’s left is your imagination.


And, well…gravity. We still can’t do much about that.


Come see for yourself why we’re Urban Evolution, and why so many people have such good things to say about us!
