The fast-growing franchise that combines mixed martial arts (MMA) and fitness opened its first location in Ontario on Saturday, January 23. Located at 3900 Grand Park Drive in Mississauga, this 10,000 square-foot facility serves as only the second UFC GYM in Canada since the company debuted in 2009.
“Our reception to our gym from the local community has truly been amazing,” said Roland Bissoon, UFC GYM’s partner in Ontario. “Unlike other gyms, our coaches include professional caliber athletes with years of experience in an array of training disciplines, eager to share their knowledge and passion with our members. We are pleased to be able to showcase everything UFC GYM has to offer at the Grand Opening.”
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie was on-hand to kick off the opening ceremonies. As part of the grand opening event schedule, the gym offered free introductory classes along with a free self-defense class taught by former WEC lightweight champion Rob “Razor” McCullough.
This gym features a 24-foot Octagon®, top-of-the-line strength training and cardio machines, battle ropes, agility ladders, bag room, Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio and other functional training equipment for dynamic workouts. The gym’s explosive workout environment uses cutting-edge training techniques inspired by UFC® athletes and provides members with everything needed for the entire family to sweat, move, live and Train Different™.
In addition to the corporate owned signature clubs, UFC GYM also offers the unique opportunity to own and operate a UFC GYM franchise domestically and internationally.
