If you’ve not heard of UFC GYM before, no doubt you soon will.
Famous across the world in countries including the United States, Australia, Canada, and United Arab Emirates, the concept is now on its way to England. In fact, the first two UK locations confirmed are Woking and Nottingham.
Expected to open at both sites this April, UFC GYM is a brand extension of UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).
The new fitness facilities enter the UK and Republic of Ireland as part of an exclusive 10-year partnership with TD Lifestyle plc which has committed to opening more than 100 locations.
Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping said: “UFC GYMs are an amazing way for individuals and families to work out and get in shape together.
“We have a lot of different training programs suitable for all ages and we’re excited to finally bring our unique brand of fitness to the UK and Ireland.”
Since debuting in 2009, the gym has opened more than 150 locations across the world.
UFC GYM says its programming has been developed through exclusive access to the training regimens of internationally-acclaimed UFC athletes, providing members with everything they need for the entire family to move, to get fit and to live a healthy life.
The Woking location will be a CLASS UFC GYM, which the company says focuses on a result-based and class centric format.
Joe Long, TD lifestyle director, said: “We are passionate about opening our new boutique fitness franchise model in the UK.
“We are excited to open the first international CLASS UFC GYM, following on from the successful launch in the US.
“It’s an honour to help bring UFC GYM’s revolutionary style of fitness to new regions and to continually grow our Train Different philosophy.”
The Woking gym will offer H.I.I.T and boxing classes, with state-of-the-art fitness equipment and high-spec recovery area, including cryotherapy units and physiotherapy facilities.
