NYC Gets Its First UFC Gym

GRAND OPENING OF FIRST UFC GYM® IN MANHATTAN
 
Free Classes, Fitness Assessments and Tours to Take Place April 24 - 27
UFC GYM® is pleased to celebrate the grand opening of its first location in Manhattan in the heart of the Financial District. The much-anticipated UFC GYM located at 80 John Street will host free events, classes, fitness assessments and tours from April 24-27. Members joining during the grand opening period will receive special membership offers and the enrollment fee will be waived.  
 
“We want to bring the health and fitness benefits of mixed martial arts to everyone — really cater to the entire family,” said Jason Losco, co-franchisee of the UFC GYM located on John Street. “We offer fun, challenging, total body workouts that help members TRAIN DIFFERENT® and burn calories. We are focused on helping people of all ages and fitness levels reach their fitness goals and enjoy the supportive community environment. We are so committed to this that we already have plans for four more gyms in New York.”   
 
UFC GYM’s TRAIN DIFFERENT® approach uses unconventional training methods at the gym. It fuses together the multi-disciplined approach of mixed martial arts with state-of-the-art equipment and traditional fitness. Members can access as many tools and resources as they need to reach their goals and develop a healthy lifestyle.
 
To celebrate, UFC GYM invites the community to stop by from April 24-27th for complimentary VIP club tours. All day long, guests will have the opportunity to participate in several group fitness focused Boxing and kickboxing classes, along with Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu  and other technique driven classes.
 
The facility will span approximately 6,500 square feet with expansive 15 foot ceilings and over 200 feet of 12 foot high windows. It will offer over 50 classes per week and one-on-one training sessions with certified coaches. Additionally, it will feature a 20 foot Octagon™, boxing ring, specially designed bag-room with 30 heavy bags, free weights, cardio machines and additional amenities and equipment that members and guests of all fitness levels can enjoy. Full locker room and shower facilities with towel service are available and memberships include unlimited classes and open access to the facility.
 
This first location in Manhattan is part of UFC GYM’s expansion following its acquisition of LA Boxing® earlier this year. With the addition of the current 81 LA Boxing locations in 23 states, UFC GYM is franchising this new model of boutique clubs now and continuing to preserve the character and guiding principles of its brand. Franchisees will have the unique opportunity to own and operate the new UFC GYM franchise model across the U.S. and the globe.
