Lafayette, California (USA) –In the past year, UFC® GYM™ has changed the way people approach fitness, giving individuals the opportunity to achieve results they never thought possible. With two successful locations already in operation in Concord, Calif. and Rosemead, Calif., UFC Gym officials announced today the opening of a third location in Corona, Calif.
Beginning March 5, residents of the Inland Empire can experience UFC Gym’s ground-breaking approach to fitness at the new facility located at 470 N. McKinley Street in Corona. Conveniently in close proximity to Highways 91 and 15 in the Costco / Home Depot shopping center, the UFC Gym is expected to become the area’s ultimate fitness destination. By integrating mixed martial arts, innovative fitness training, nutrition, diet support and kids’ programming under one roof, UFC Gym is taking exercise to a whole new level.
“Corona is our biggest gym yet, fusing together the best of fitness and MMA in one location,” Adam Sedlack, UFC Gym Senior Vice President said. “The popularity in Corona has been incredible as UFC Gym continues to create innovation in the way people train. People are tired of overcrowded, boring fitness clubs and are looking to be part of a fitness and conditioning community. We are eager to serve the entire Inland Empire’s training needs, being not what you expect, and more than you could imagine!”
The 45,000 square-foot facility features cutting-edge training techniques including progressive group fitness classes, Muay Thai, kickboxing, jiu jitsu, self-defense instruction, and offerings such as a 32-foot Octagon®, UFC Kids’ Gym, and High-Octane Conditioning.
Members will enjoy a variety of amenities, including the signature Arm Bar Café featuring healthy, affordable dining options, a UFC Gym Store for the latest in MMA Lifestyle apparel, and full amenity locker rooms complete with dry saunas. Other exciting features include functional training areas and six unique training rooms. If that wasn’t enough, UFC Gym’s all-new heavy bag room will feature a 55-foot bag rack with a rolling monkey bar system that will inspire members to realize results like never before.
The Corona facility will also house 4,330 square-feet of space dedicated specifically to kids, bringing families together in a fun atmosphere. Under this platform, parents can get an ultimate workout experience, knowing that their children are getting great exercise, learning the importance of health and nutrition and developing invaluable character building skills. With a wide range of activities for youth, from MMA classes, to birthday parties, UFC Gym makes health and fitness fun for the whole family.
“We’re excited to open our third UFC Gym in Corona and continue to raise the bar in the fitness industry,” UFC President Dana White said. “With the success of our first two gyms in Concord and Rosemead, we’re confident that the UFC Gym experience is second-to-none. Now, we’re creating the ultimate fitness destination for residents of the Inland Empire.”
