"The goal of UFC Gym when we launched it three years ago was to create a unique MMA-styled fitness experience for men, women and children that went far beyond the traditional workout," stated Mark Mastrov, whose New Evolution Ventures company partnered with the UFC for the initial UFC Gym project in 2010."
"We were drawn to LA Boxing based upon the similarities in our brand DNA," Mastrov added. "We are thrilled to partner with the existing LA Boxing team and their franchisees in expanding our shared vision worldwide."
The current UFC Gym facilities are located in Hawaii and California, and additional locations are set to open on Long Island and Australia in the months ahead. Each facility averages 35,000 square feet.
UFC President Dana White is pleased with the progress being made by UFC Gym.
"The UFC Gym experience is second-to-none," UFC President Dana White stated. "Our gyms have incredible energy, and through innovative programs, members see amazing results. With this acquisition, we continue to grow our footprint as leaders in the global fitness industry."
UFC Gym is an extension of the UFC brand.
