August 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // MIAMI, Fla. - UFC Gym®, the rapidly-expanding fitness franchise inspired by UFC athletes that combines mixed martial arts (MMA), functional fitness classes, and general fitness, announces today the grand opening celebration for UFC Gym®’s first signature location in Florida. Major League Baseball superstar and Miami-native Alex Rodriguez opened the Signature UFC Gym® location in Kendall earlier this year. The club will officially celebrate its grand opening on Aug. 10.
Rodriguez, who has excelled on the baseball playing field and is a three-time MLB American League MVP and Chief Executive Officer of A-Rod Corp, has now expanded his business portfolio to include the booming fitness industry. He was looking for a way to combine the most important aspects of his life (healthy lifestyle, family, discipline, respect) and found it in UFC Gym®. As a new franchisee, Rodriguez secured the development rights through A-Rod Corp for 10 additional UFC Gym® franchises throughout the Miami - Dade County area, which he plans to open in the coming years.
