Las Vegas, NV (USA) –Since the doors opened at the first two UFC® Gym™ locations (Concord, CA and Rosemead, CA) in the last year, the response from fitness enthusiasts has been overwhelming. From the time membership enrollment began in June 2009, several thousand people have signed up to take part in the ultimate fitness experience UFC Gym offers its members. From training inside the hallowed Octagon® to tackling UFC Gym’s Ultimate TRX workout, individuals of all ages and fitness levels in the Concord and Rosemead areas have come out in droves to participate in the next wave of fitness.
The Inland Empire will now have their chance to experience all that UFC Gym has to offer. Just weeks after the grand opening of the Rosemead location, New Evolution Ventures (NeV), and the UFC announced today that the third UFC Gym location is set to open in Corona, CA. Continuing in an effort to shake up and revitalize the fitness industry UFC GYM announced the opening of their enrollment center at 390 N. McKinley Suite #116 beginning October 18th, where discounted memberships will be available. The new facility (currently under construction) will be located in the same shopping center, to the east of Costco, and is scheduled to open in early 2011.
"The response to the UFC Gyms has been incredible!" said UFC President Dana White. "The fitness industry has been stale for a long time. Finally there is a place where people can go and stay excited and motivated to work out and learn. We can’t open these gyms fast enough."
“This UFC Gym facility will be second to none. No one out there can replicate what we do. The Corona location will continue to provide innovative fitness training and create an atmosphere where members will see immediate results. UFC Gym is not what you expect and more than you could imagine” said Jim Rowley, NeV CEO/co-founder.
With easy access off Interstate 15 and State Route 91, UFC Gym officials expect the Corona facility to become an instant fitness destination. At almost 45,000 square-feet, the gym will feature cutting-edge training techniques, including MMA programming such as Muay Thai kickboxing, jiu jitsu, self-defense classes, and team-oriented Daily Ultimate Training, as well as one-of-a-kind offerings such as a 32-foot Octagon, UFC Kid’s Gym Fitness, Octagon Training Disciplines, and High-Octane Conditioning. What’s more, the third UFC Gym will inspire members to realize results like never before.
