UK master franchisor TD Lifestyle has been tasked with opening over 100 gyms in the UK and Ireland - over 80 per cent of which will be franchised operations.
The 10-year deal to bring UFC GYM locations to Europe is the largest development partnership in UFC GYM history.
Company president Adam Sedlack says: “This partnership serves as a milestone and an opportunity for both UFC and UFC GYM brands, as the UK and Ireland markets host a significant population of MMA fans and fitness enthusiasts.”
UFC GYM programming has been developed through exclusive access to the training regimens of UFC athletes.
With three club formats - Signature, Core and Class - members benefit from a range of functional fitness classes, group and private MMA training, group fitness, personal and group dynamic performance-based training, plus MMA youth programming.
Since opening in 2009, UFC GYM has established more than 150 locations throughout the United States, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, Mexico, Oman, the Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates.
