UFC GYM opens signature club in Hawaii

UFC GYM has launched its fifth site - the UFC BJ Penn Hawaii in Honolulu.

The 3,440sq m club has been launched in partnership with BJ Penn, Hawaii native and two-division UFC champion.

"My new signature gym is not a traditional health club or just a fight club, but offers all the tools you and your family needs to get results," said Penn.

Through its "Train Different" philosophy, UFC GYM embraces the workouts and lifestyle that have proven successful for Penn and other elite UFC athletes.

Facilities at the new club include a fitness suite with CV and resistance equipment, a dedicated grappling room, functional area and MMA zone devoted to martial arts training.

There's also a large group exercise studio offering hundreds of classes every week - from TRX Suspension Training to Hot Hula, Brutal Barre and signature programming like Daily Ultimate Training. A range of youth programmes are also available.

UFC GYM is a brand extension of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, in alliance with New Evolution Ventures (NeV).
