UFC franchise gyms and fighting entertainment shows are only emphasizing the insane growth in popularity towards combat sports worldwide. Everybody wants a part in it and the fitness industry is the quickest way to start.
The violent persona of MMA scares many away from trying it. However, a lot of people today recognize its health benefits, fitness gains, and self-defense perks.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) gyms are popping up everywhere. We’re about to see the fourth largest and most innovative fitness UFC gym launch in Kailua, Hawaii! And both ladies and gentlemen want to join in on the action.
UFC Franchise Gyms Promote MMA For Fitness
MMA and combats sports have become very popular over the past two years. Personally, I love the idea of learning how to defend yourself whilst getting fit and having fun.
Don’t know what UFC is? The UFC franchise is a multi-million dollar industry and people are asking for more. The Ultimate Fighting Championship is an American MMA organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada, It is owned and operated by parent company William Morris Endeavor. It happens to be one of the largest MMA promotions in the world and features many high-level fighters.
The company hosts events worldwide and has twelve different weight divisions. After hosting over 400 events, the UFC franchise continues to grow in popularity worldwide! And as a result, everybody wants to feel ‘fighting fit!’
Interestingly, keeping fit is a really important part of the Hawaain community. UFC President, Adam Sedlack says that they’ve experienced an amazing response from their members in their first three gyms. And because of this, the UFC franchise is excited to open a new location in Kailua. This is a big step for the company because they have wanted to expand in Kailua for a long time. With over 150 different locations worldwide, Adam wants to bring the UFC’s unique training philosophy back home.
UFC Hall of Famer and UFC GYM franchisee BJ Penn, says he is actually from Kailua and is proud to bring a UFC Gym back to his hometown. He believes that combat sports training is also a great way to connect people and will connect the rest of the Kailua community.
The Unique Training Approach
In fact, one of their key initiatives is to continuously provide their Train Different® philosophy throughout the incredible community. And perhaps the unique benefits of combat sports and its associated training regimes have sparked a lightbulb in the rest of the world too.
The gym is going to be located in the Lau Hala
Shops (573 Kailua Road). According to the UFC franchise, this new gym will be the largest and most innovative fitness facility in Kailua. It will have a large group fitness studio, boxing and kickboxing conditioning area, MMA and youth fitness classes. There are even Pilates and Yoga classes available. As well as state-of-the-art equipment, full amenity locker rooms, a Kids Club and more.
The goal is to provide everybody with something they can enjoy. Moreover, the UFC gym is offering ‘Founding Member’ special rates for the first 500 prospective members who enroll. And any new member who enrolls will automatically be entered to win a trip for two to Las Vegas, Nevada, home of UFC.
There is a new mentality within the fitness industry. And that is to train like an athlete. I think this is the best way to maximize your fitness gains because you’re constantly cross-training and challenging yourself. A UFC gym is a great place to learn how to do this since all its training regimens have been designed by internationally-acclaimed UFC athletes.
So if you’re looking for energized group classes and world-class private coaching. Or, better yet, a family-friendly community of fitness enthusiasts who love to train differently. You might want to hop onto your next flight to Hawaii!
