UFC Gym, BJ Penn Opening Second Gym

UFC GYM® TO OPEN SECOND SIGNATURE OAHU LOCATION WITH BJ PENN

Enrollment Center Opens for Membership September 24th
Santa Ana, CA  – UFC GYM® announced today that it will partner with former two-division UFC champion and coach of the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter® BJ Penn to open a second signature fitness facility in the fighter’s home state of Hawaii. The fitness destination, which will begin enrolling members on September 24, 2013, is set to open for workouts early in 2014.  The gym will serve the Central and Leeward Oahu community and will be located in the Waikele Center at 94-875 Lumiana Street, Suite 15, Waipahu, HI.

“I’m excited to partner with UFC GYM to open another location so soon after the successful opening of our first Oahu gym nearly two years ago,” said BJ Penn, a native of Hilo. “We wanted to expand on the west side of the island to continue to share our workouts and lifestyle that have proven successful not only for our members, but for me, personally, as well as many of the world’s most elite UFC athletes.”

The 30,000 square-foot facility will feature a 30 foot Octagon™, Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio, bag room, top-of-the-line strength training and cardio machines, battling ropes, agility ladders and other functional training equipment for dynamic workouts.  The gym’s explosive workout environment will use cutting-edge training techniques inspired by BJ Penn and will provide members with everything needed for the entire family to sweat, move, and TRAIN DIFFERENT®.

Membership also includes unlimited access to UFC GYM’s signature classes such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu, muay thai, women’s self-defense, Daily Ultimate Training (DUT), and more. A team of elite Personal Trainers will help members achieve indisputable results through personal and group training. The new location will also feature a UFC GYM retail store and UFC GYM Kids’ private training area offering specialized youth fitness classes. 

An enrollment center is now open at the temporary address of Suite 105, 94-849 Lumiana Street, Waipahu, HI 96797, where memberships are available now at significant pre-opening discounts. The permanent club space will be in Suite 15.  To find out more about UFC GYM, click on www.ufcgym.com.

In addition to the two UFC GYM BJ Penn signature gyms in Hawaii, UFC GYM signature clubs are located in Concord, Rosemead, Corona and Torrance, Calif., Long Island, N.Y., and Sydney, Australia. UFC GYM also franchises a new model of boutique clubs. Earlier this year, UFC GYM acquired LA Boxing® adding 81 LA Boxing locations in 23 states to their roster of ultimate fitness destinations. Franchisees have the unique opportunity to own and operate the new UFC GYM franchise model across the U.S. and the globe.
