First UFC Gym Location in Ontario To Open in Mississauga This Fall

Mississauga will be the Second UFC GYM Location in Canada; Multiple Locations Planned Across Ontario

Mississauga, Ontario – UFC GYM®, known for its unique Train Different™ approach that combines the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) and fitness, will open its first Ontario location in Mississauga this fall.  A preview centre, located at the front of the new facility, is currently enrolling members and offering special pre-opening membership rates.

Also, be on the look out for the world’s first UFC GYM Mobile Experience, a traveling gym complete with punching bags, TRX cables, battle ropes, agility ladders, sandbags and focus pads. The UFC GYM Mobile Experience, designed to explain the concept in a hands-on way, debuted at numerous festivals in Mississauga’s Celebration Square over the past month. The UFC GYM Mobile Experience can be seen at the new Mississauga gym location, as well as at local stores, restaurants, sports bars, city events and festivals.

Located at 3900 Grand Park Drive, the Mississauga location will be the second UFC GYM in Canada. The first Canadian UFC GYM opened in Sherwood Park, Alberta last month.  The Mississauga location joins more than 120 UFC GYM clubs and 100,000 members worldwide.

The 10,100 square-foot facility will feature a 24-foot Octagon®, top-of-the-line strength training and cardio machines, battle ropes, agility ladders, bag room, Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio and other functional training equipment for dynamic workouts. The gym’s explosive workout environment uses cutting-edge training techniques inspired by UFC athletes and provides members with everything needed for the entire family to sweat, move, live and Train Different™.

“UFC is ecstatic to open its first UFC GYM location in the province of Ontario,” said Tom Wright, UFC Executive Vice-President and General Manager for Canada, Australia and New Zealand. “UFC fighters are the most complete athletes in the world and mixed martial arts provides a blueprint for supreme health and fitness. UFC GYM offers a world-class training facility and innovative Train Different approach for Ontarians of all ages and skill levels.”

“We are thrilled and honored to bring the UFC GYM Train Different philosophy to Ontario. Our first gym will truly be an incredible facility and we are excited to showcase all the features and amenities to the local community,” said Roland Bissoon, UFC GYM’s partner in Ontario.  “Unlike other gyms, our coaches include professional caliber athletes with years of experience in an array of training disciplines, eager to share their knowledge and passion with our members. We will be offering powerful programs and training techniques that re-define how fitness should be experienced. With this new fitness facility, our youth training facilities, and specialized MMA coaching, our goal is to create a community for all ages and fitness levels that is inviting, inclusive, encouraging and inspiring.”

Mr. Bissoon is a seasoned business executive with more than 20 years’ experience working in the US and in the Toronto area. Mr. Bissoon was most recently President of Toronto-based Canadian Bearing, Ltd, one of the largest industrial suppliers in Canada.

Mr. Bissoon is now looking forward to building the UFC GYM brand in Canada with numerous locations planned across Ontario. “For the first time, Ontarians will get a chance to experience what makes UFC GYM different. Tens of thousands of members have gone through transformations, learned powerful techniques and re-defined how fitness and training should be experienced.”

Membership includes unlimited access to UFC GYM’s signature classes such as Daily Ultimate Training® (DUT), UFC FIT, kickboxing, boxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu to name a few. A team of elite Personal Coaches will help members achieve indisputable results through personal and group training. The new location will feature a UFC GYM retail section and UFC GYM kids’ private training area offering specialized youth fitness classes and mixed martial arts concepts.
