The first UFC GYM is to open in Glorietta, Makati in 2017, after UFC GYM chief executive officer Brent Leffel confirmed a 10-year pact with Fitspiration Philippines.
UFC GYMs are to offer group and private MMA training, MMA youth programming to encourage aspiring mixed martial arts competitors, as well as fitness classes and dynamic performance-based training.
Gym members will also be able to train in UFC's world-famous octagon, while signature classes are to include Daily Ultimate Training, TRX, Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, boxing, mixed martial arts conditioning, and women’s self-defense.
It is hoped that through Fitspiration, UFC GYM will eventually open 30 locations throughout the Philippines.
"We're very excited to embark on this exclusive partnership to expand UFC GYM's global footprint throughout the Philippines," said Leffel.
"Filipino fight fans understand our brand and partnering with Fitspiration PH is a perfect fit to help Manila's fitness enthusiasts train different while working to achieve their individual fitness goals."
