Endless rows of machines, friendly staff, and two locations give the no-frills sweat shop a comforting neighborhood feel. Expect to find eligible, state-of-the-art machines, intensive and expert fitness coaching, and a bevy of classes such as yoga, power sculpt, abs and flexibility, and cardio hip-hop.
It's no secret that the UFC boasts some of the best athletes in the world. So it was only natural for the brand to expand into UFC Gym, a network of training centers that includes more than 100 locations across the country. Of course, the class schedule is rooted in mixed martial arts and strength training. Functional fitness is also a huge aspect, with Daily Ultimate Training workouts (DUTs) that keep the body challenged with changing combinations of cardio, anaerobic, and agility exercises.?
With that said, UFC Gyms are not just for those interested in MMA. Its encyclopedic selection of classes includes Barre Interval to U Jam Fitness, Zumba, and Yoga Cycle, with plenty of classes for kids, as well. Personal-training sessions take place with certified UFC Gym coaches, who can both design workouts and give advice about nutrition, supplements, and which library books are heavy enough to build muscle while you read.
