MEDFORD, Ore--- Urban Fit is one of the most unique gyms a person will come across in all of Oregon. 

Urban Fit is the only powerlifting dedicated gym in the state. Powerlifting does not have to be the focus though. 

The gym equipment ranges from what would be needed for beginners, all the way to professional athletes.

The equipment is also extremely rare. Urban Fit is home to some machines that can't be found anywhere else in Oregon.

Steve Adams and his family runs the gym. The family has a true passion for helping Medford become a healthier community. 

"We do want to help Medford grow and get healthy. You know, we have been here since 1993. I grew up. I went to Hoover Elementary. I went to Hedrick. I went to South Medford and graduated there in 2009. Everybody in this gym is here to support you. We sought out to create the atmosphere that would attract those types of people. You have a goal, you want to get to that goal, you come here." said co-founder Steve Adams Jr.

Urban Fit has attracted a very diverse group of athletes. Professional athletes and world-class lifters walk through the door. 

The gym also has a fair share of average people trying to get in better shape. 

The Adams family does not want anyone to feel intimidated when seeing professional athletes around the gym. 

"The community we have growing here is professional body builders willing to help. They love to help people. They will answer any questions. They are all about giving back." said Adams. 

Opening in November, Urban Fit is ready for New Years resolutions.

Urban Fit can be found at 551 Business Park Dr, Medford, OR 97504. The phone number is 541-500-1273.
