Bankstown Sports Club and UFC GYM are pleased to announce a new state-of-the-art fitness training facility will open in Bankstown in 2018.
UFC GYM is a health, wellness and fitness centre that offers programs for all ages and fitness levels. It delivers innovative and effective fitness experiences that enable members to ‘train different’, by fusing together mixed martial arts with state-of-the-art equipment, group classes, elite coaching and tailored personal training.
UFC GYM operates at several locations across Sydney, offering a wide range of beginner and advanced martial arts classes including boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, self-defence, Muay Thai and MMA. The facilities also provide the more conventional strength and cardio training along with cross-training and yoga techniques.
Highlighted by a 24-foot Octagon®, gym members will have access to strength training and cardio machines, battle ropes, agility ladders, a bag room, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio and other functional training equipment for dynamic workouts. The gym’s explosive workout environment uses cutting-edge training techniques inspired by UFC athletes and provides members with everything needed for the entire family to sweat, move, live and Train Different®.
UFC GYM Australia CEO Maz Hagemrad, says there is something for everyone.
“The basis of our training comes from our professional UFC athletes, utilising high intensity training and functional training. Mixed martial arts underpins the style of the specialised training we offer; for example, our conditioning classes include things like boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai as the discipline, but you aren’t necessarily learning to fight, you are just using the different moves to get fit.
“We also run all of our classes for kids as well as adults. No other gym in the world offers this type of fitness programming for children aged 5 years and up”.
The new UFC GYM opening in Bankstown will be similar to the facility at Wetherill Park and will be located in the new Flinders Centre, which is currently under construction on Restwell St, Bankstown.
Bankstown Sports Club CEO Mark Condi, says the gym will be a unique and welcome addition to the local area.
“There are plenty of gyms around the Bankstown area but none that offer the variety of training UFC GYM does. We feel the facility will have a positive impact on the local community and will make health and fitness available to everyone.
“We are really excited about this new partnership and believe our members, patrons and local residents will benefit greatly”.
