Since the UFC held its first sporting event in 1993, UFC has quickly become one of the biggest and most recognized brands in the world. And with that, UFC Gyms have become one of the fastest-growing fitness franchises by helping customers achieve their goals using the mixed martial arts, personal training, specialized equipment and attention to healthy eating that has helped fighters achieve UFC stardom.

Entrepreneurs can take the already-established UFC brand and use it to build a powerful business. It’s instant recognition for franchisees, who are able to attract customers and benefit from gym membership dues, the sale of group and individual training programs and merchandise sales.

UFC Gyms are located in shopping centers and grocery store plazas in 25 states across the country, with plans to open 100 more locations in 2015 in the U.S. and in Canada.
