UFC GYM® is continuing the expansion of its global footprint into the Middle East with the opening of a new signature gym in Bahrain.

Located in the Kingdom’s Al Raya Mall is the second of five locations slated to debut in the region in the next year.

Commenting on the expansion, UFC GYM President Adam Sedlack stated “since opening the first UFC GYM - Middle East location in Dubai last year, we’ve received tremendous positive feedback from our membership community that has paved the way for our impending new franchise.

“We’re excited to build on this momentum by providing fitness enthusiasts in Bahrain with a new way to TRAIN DIFFERENT®, while striving to achieve their individual goals.”

Since debuting in 2009, UFC GYM has opened more than 135 locations throughout the United States, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Oman, Philippines, South America, Taiwan, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates. The fitness franchise has continued to grow at a rapid pace with more than 50 locations opening in the past two years and over 50 gyms expected to open in the next year.

UFC GYM - Middle East Chief Executive Hamad Al Sayer added “UFC GYM provides anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, the resources to improve their health by using various fitness techniques and disciplines in a group or individual environment.

“Our unique training experience has invigorated our residents and we look forward to continuing our expansion to make our locations the most preferred fitness destinations throughout the Middle East.”

Offering a full-range of functional fitness classes, group and private MMA training, group fitness, personal and group dynamic performance-based training, plus MMA youth programming, UFC GYM creates training programs to fit all ages and fitness levels. UFC GYM programming has been developed through exclusive access to the training regimens of internationally-acclaimed UFC® athletes, providing members with everything they need for the entire family to move, get fit and live a healthy life.

UFC Senior Vice President of International and Content Joe Carr concluded “UFC has a tremendous fan base across the Middle East and we’re excited that UFC GYM will bring its unique training methods to this market.

“UFC GYM is a perfect brand extension of our organization that helps introduce the sport and values of mixed martial arts to audiences of all ages.”

Membership includes unlimited access to UFC’s world-famous Octagon® and signature classes such as Daily Ultimate Training® (DUT®), TRX®, Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, boxing, mixed martial arts conditioning, women’s self-defense, as well as popular group fitness classes.
