The world leader in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and one of the world’s most recognized names in sports entertainment, UFC©, is holding events throughout the week until Thursday, Nov. 13 for their official grand opening celebration for the public from 5-10PM at UFC GYM SOHO. Food, demonstrations, & special guests will be provided. Located at 277 Canal Street, 3rd floor between Broadway and Canal Street, UFC GYM SOHO in New York City hosted a media day, exclusive for press and media last night.

Under UFC’s 10,000 square foot gym, it also features a 24 foot Octagon, specially designed room with 30 heavy bags, customized UFC© free weights, top of the line strength training and cardio machines and TRX suspension training. We were given an opportunity to participate in group fitness classes in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu technique driven and UFC FIT training classes, led by professional fighters, Levi Lalonde and Ramsey Nijem. Not to mention, we were given access to amenities such as hand wraps, punching gloves and more, in addition of receiving official UFC Goodie bags to kick start our fitness endeavors.

According to how UFC’s training methods are different from other high-end gyms in the city, UFC Gym’s “TRAIN DIFFERENT” approach attracts a diverse crowd of gym goers, especially who are UFC enthusiasts, people interested in self-defense or people who simply want to get more out of a gym besides machines. UFC GYM’S “TRAIN DIFFERENT” approach “fuses together the multi-disciplined approach of mixed martial arts with state-of-the-art equipment and traditional fitness. Members can access as many tools and resources as they need to reach their goals and develop a healthy lifestyle.” The manager of UFC GYM SOHO, Tiffany “TK” Keaton did an amazing job in ensuring that we got the full UFC experience, whether if you trained in martial arts or never touched a bag before.

The workouts are not only fun and very intense, from rounds punching the heavy bag with weighted gloves to learning essential grappling techniques in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, but also fuse real-life fighting techniques in helping you maximize your fitness potential. With an enlarged poster of Ronda Rousey’s smiling in the girl’s locker room, you can be ensured that the fighter in you is waiting to come out. Overall, the gym deserves five stars for overall staff, atmosphere, venue, organization and likeness to the UFC Franchise. This is truly a dreamland for anyone into UFC and martial arts with top notch equipment, staff and gym.
