Supplier showcase: DFC

With the first of a planned 105 clubs across the UK and Ireland up and running, UFC GYM turned to the expertise of DFC to ensure a simpler membership process for members

DFC’s energy and enthusiasm made them the perfect partner for UFC GYM

UFC GYM, the first major extension of world-leading mixed martial arts brand, Ultimate Fighting Championship, has entered the UK market and partnered with DFC, the experienced revenue management solutions provider.

As an expert in direct debit collection, DFC is already standardising and simplifying the membership process.

The partnership will support UFC GYM UK, initially with the first UFC GYM – an 18,000sq ft facility located in Huntingdon Street, Nottingham – by removing arduous administrative tasks, making the membership process easier, quicker, and more consistent for customers.

Who is UFC GYM?
The first to combine mixed martial arts and fitness, UFC GYM has developed a dedication to “Train Different” for long-term and consistent results for the whole family, with membership options starting from the age of six years old.

Offering state-of-the-art equipment, top coaching with accredited UFC GYM coaches, and a passionate community of movers and motivators, UFC GYM brings world-champion level training to fitness enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

Since its inception in 2009, UFC has opened more than 150 gym locations worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Bahrain, Mexico, Chile, Oman, Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, the UAE, and now the United Kingdom.

Standing out
As for any fitness provider, managing memberships effectively while offering a high-end fitness experience is paramount.

Joe Long, director at UFC GYM UK, said: “We looked at working with a few direct debit collection companies, but it was the enthusiasm, energy and expertise of the DFC team that stood out to us. Going with DFC ended up being a gut feeling, and it’s really paid off. They are experts in their field – and their understanding of the fitness industry is second to none.”

Fuelling growth
The new Nottingham gym provides the UK with a revolutionary fitness and training environment specifically designed to combine the best elements of mixed martial arts and traditional fitness to create a family-friendly training hub.

The Nottingham studio is the first of over 105 clubs planned for the UK and Ireland over the coming years. Visit www.ufcgym.co.uk for further information.

DFC – doing things differently
DFC is a leading revenue management solutions provider in the leisure industry. DFC aims to remove the faff from collections for busy fitness organisations.

Through a commitment to maximise income, streamline administration processes and reducing customer churn by improving customer relationships, DFC can ensure that health clubs retain members while freeing up valuable time.
