Yay! You're Here!

When we paused operations as Greensboro Downtown Yoga in March 2020, never did we imagine the year that would follow. But we’re excited to reopen as GXunited Fitness Co. and welcome the Greensboro community back inside our studio. Our mission of supporting the community is the same, our look and feel have just changed a bit!

They called us crazy cuz we never fit in

Sure our name is GXunited Fitness Co., but we often feel a bit like a misfit in the greater world of fitness, yoga, and mindfulness.

You see, we love exercise science, sport psychology, and traditional yoga practices. We geek out when talking about how to move your body (aka. technique & movement), thrive in emotional fitness experiences, and struggle to fit into a singular form of “exercise”.

Our classes are an infusion of that! With us you can enjoy a sweaty yoga practice or mindful strength workout.

Plus, you’ll never hear us talk about ‘beach bodies’ or offer a weight loss challenge. Our Instagram feed will never showcase shirtless people working out.

We strongly believe our bodies are made to move, and movement isn’t about how you look but about how you feel. 

Our goal is to bridge the gap between the worlds of yoga & fitness, to allow the conversation to become about mindful movement experiences versus burning calories. We want people to remember the joys of movement.

So yea, sometimes we feel like an outsider...but you know what, that's okay. We embrace being different and Hope you do to!

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes…the ones who see things differently…while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius….the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

What is GXunited?

Wondering where our name comes from? Well, GXunited Fitness Co. is the headquarters and learning lab location for GXunited – an educational resource hub dedicated to group fitness.

In 2015 Summer set out to develop a central location for group fit pros to get the resources they needed to teach science-backed classes, connect with each other, and learn new techniques.

2020 allowed us to further that mission through virtual learning and onDemand workouts. Now we’re taking it a step further and using this studio as a learning lab for new group fitness classes and best practices for the fitness industry.

Get excited, because we’re going to create something amazing together!
