UFC GYM to open first Abu Dhabi branch in March


The 1,600 square metre space spans three floors with facilities for all ages and levels.

UFC GYM Middle East is coming to Abu Dhabi and will be the capital’s first branch.

 Set to open in March, the gym, an extension of premium global sports brand and premier Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organisation, is part of UFC GYM’s tenacious expansion plans for the region as it aims to pioneer its ‘Train Different’ philosophy across the Middle East.

The gym will provide elite training programmes that fuse the multi-disciplined approach of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) with state-of-the-art equipment and world class coaching.

 Certified elite coaches will be on hand to provide members with “unique” fitness regimens as per each member’s individual goals, lifestyle and experiences, while educating them on all aspects of health and fitness.




“Abu Dhabi has become a central focus for MMA and UFC over the past few months, and will continue to be the central point for UFC events in the future – making it the ideal location for a new UFC GYM,” said Wissam Abi Nader, UFC GYM Director, Middle East Franchising.

“We’re looking forward to providing people of all ages and fitness levels with our ‘Train Different’ methods, helping them to achieve their individual goals.”




The expansive space includes strength equipment and cardio area, battle ropes, agility ladders, and large mat areas specifically designed for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and other martial arts training for both youth and adults.

 The ground floor will be dedicated to a fully multi-functional freestyle fitness area, where UFC GYM’s signature class, Daily Ultimate Training (DUT) will take place and where members can work-out individually.
