While driving down on the 10 West Freeway, I couldn’t help but notice the giant UFC Gym sign eyeballing me right off the Rosemead exit. I was shocked to find out that a new UFC Gym was setting up shop at the once Toys R’ Us and former Levitz Furniture location. I knew the 1st gym had opened in Concord, but this was my back yard and I totally dropped the ball on noticing this gym. Anyway, check out the latest press release by the UFC for their 2nd UFC gym located in the city of Rosemead, California.
SECOND UFC® GYM™TO OPEN IN ROSEMEAD, CALIFORNIA THIS SUMMER
Enrollment Center Opens for Memberships in February
Las Vegas, NV (USA) – When the doors opened at the first UFC® Gym™ in Concord, Calif. late last year, the response from fitness enthusiasts was overwhelming. From the time membership enrollment began in June 2009, nearly 3,500 people signed up to take part in UFC Gym’s incredible experience. From training inside the hallowed Octagon™ to tackling UFC Gym’s Ultimate TRX workout, exercise fans in the Concord area came out in droves to participate in the next wave of fitness.
Now, families in Southern California will have their chance to experience the UFC Gym. New Evolution Fitness Company founders and UFC Gym partners Mark Mastrov and Jim Rowley, along with UFC President Dana White, announced today that the second UFC Gym will open this summer in the Los Angeles area. The planned 40,000 square-foot facility is scheduled to open in June at 8920 Rosemead Boulevard in Rosemead, with membership enrollment beginning in February. The open enrollment center will be located at 3672 Rosemead Boulevard and offer special enrollment discounts.
“From the beginning, we’ve said that we plan to shake up the fitness industry,” UFC President Dana White said. “The UFC Gym in Rosemead is another step in that direction. When this gym opens, the people of Southern California are going to see what the UFC Gym experience is all about.”
“We are excited to open our second UFC Gym this summer,” NEFC CEO/co-founder Jim Rowley, said. “This facility will continue with the UFC Gym approach and feature unique fitness programming that will truly change the way people think about fitness.”
With easy access off Interstate 10, UFC Gym officials expect the Rosemead facility to become an instant fitness destination. The gym will feature cutting-edge training techniques, including MMA programming such as Muay Thai kickboxing, jiu jitsu, self-defense classes, and team-oriented Daily Ultimate Training, as well as one-of-a-kind offerings such as UFC Kid’s Gym Fitness, Octagon Training Disciplines, and High-Octane Conditioning. What’s more, the second UFC Gym will inspire members to realize results like never before.
“By combining our innovative fitness techniques with the fast-paced action of the UFC, we believe we’ve found the formula for success,” Rowley said. “We are really looking forward to bringing a UFC Gym to Rosemead. We are confident that it will only take one trip to our new facility for people to see why UFC Gyms are the future of fitness.”
