UFC Gym — Fitness Franchise Powered by One of the World’s Most popular Brands

UFC Gym fitness franchise is growing fast as mixed martial arts fans flock to adopt the training techniques of UFC fighters to achieve peak fitness

UFC Gym is the largest boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts franchise network in the world, with almost 150 open locations in the United States and Australia, and we are growing fast as Americans embrace the opportunity to “Train Different” and have fun while achieving personal fitness and skills acquisition goals.

UFC Gym This isn’t a boring gym where you are confined to a treadmill or a stair machine. Instead, UFC Gym uses mixed martial arts, personal training, specialized equipment and attention to healthy eating to help customers reach their fitness goals.

The UFC Gym franchise is a place for the whole family, and it’s more than merely a gym. Its “Train Different” approach fuses mixed martial arts training with state-of-the-art equipment and traditional fitness programs. By providing a full range of group fitness classes, private coaching, personal and group dynamic training, plus MMA-style youth programming, UFC Gym is able to appeal to all ages and fitness levels — and by combining mixed martial arts and fitness, UFC Gym's “Train Different” techniques help members see their health, fitness and agility rapidly improve.


Growing brand

Our fitness centers, conveniently located in shopping centers and grocery store plazas, are found in 25 states across the country. We plan to open 100 more locations in 2015 in the U.S. and in Canada. The total investment for a new UFC Gym franchise ranges from $244,257 to $594,507.

UFC Gym Our turnkey and semi-absentee operation allows franchisees to quickly open and operate multiple locations. That’s important, because the popularity of the UFC brand is exploding, which is creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to take the UFC brand and use it to build a powerful business.

“You want to be first,” says UFC Gym Co-Chairman Mark Mastrov. “You want to get the best locations, the best markets in the UFC Gym franchise — and today’s the best day to do that.”

The UFC brand provides instant recognition for franchisees. Through television deals, our sporting events reach viewers in Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, the Middle East and Asia. UFC Gym franchisees are able to attract customers and benefit from gym membership dues, the sale of group and individual training programs, and merchandise sales.


The size of the gym industry

According to IBISWorld, revenue for the gym, health and fitness clubs generated $27 billion in sales in 2014, with a 2.3 percent annual growth rate from 2009 to 2014. The UFC gym franchise leverages its branding to help franchisees tap into this market.

“The UFC is one of the most powerful brands in the world,” says Mark. “Having access to that brand is the most amazing opportunity anybody could ever have in franchising.”
