UFC GYM® Announces Partnership with Piatt Companies to Expand Footprint in Pennsylvania with State-of-the-Art UFC GYM® Pittsburgh
Former Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Shazier joins the team as UFC GYM® Pittsburgh ambassador
PITTSBURGH, June 1, 2022 // PRNewswire // - UFC GYM® announced that the company has partnered with Western Pennsylvania real estate developer and management company Piatt Companies (formerly Millcraft Investments) to develop a new 40,000-square-foot UFC GYM Pittsburgh facility. The multi-million-dollar club will be located at 236 Fifth Ave. in Downtown Pittsburgh and will be the third UFC GYM location in the state and first in Western Pennsylvania to provide functional fitness, MMA-inspired conditioning classes and access to world-class facilities.
"This is an exciting time for us at UFC GYM as we partner with Piatt Companies to introduce UFC GYM to the Pittsburgh community," said UFC GYM Chief Executive Officer Adam Sedlack. "We're thrilled to offer our luxury fitness center, signature programming and TRAIN DIFFERENT® mentality to the fitness enthusiasts we'll soon be welcoming in to our premier facility."
As part of the partnership, Piatt Companies will introduce former Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Shazier as the UFC GYM Pittsburgh ambassador. Shazier, a 2014 Steelers first-round draft pick and two-time Pro Bowl linebacker, sustained a life-altering spinal cord injury in 2017. Through rehabilitation, he fought the odds of his injury by walking then jogging then running again within months. He retired from the NFL in 2020 and now runs the Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation to raise resources for people who have had spinal cord injuries to know they have a support system that is fighting with them.
"We are excited to be opening UFC GYM in Downtown Pittsburgh and partnering with Ryan as our ambassador," said Lucas Piatt, CEO of Piatt Companies. "His story inspired our entire city and he shared his journey with us. Everyone faces struggles and we're all fighting for something. The UFC GYM in Market Square will be the first of its kind here."
Making the benefits of world-class MMA athlete training programs available to all, regardless of age or athletic ability, UFC GYM Pittsburgh will offer guests state-of-the-art amenities, including a weight room with free weights and Olympic lift platforms, robust cardio and functional equipment, functional training area with indoor turf, mat room, bag rack, full-service locker room and more. To further support a healthy lifestyle, the location will feature an Arm Bar Cafe and Recovery area, providing pre- and post-workout treatments, including cryotherapy, Normatec and more. Validated parking will be available for gym-goers.
Members will have access to a one-stop shop for any and all fitness needs, including a schedule of dynamic studio-quality group fitness classes such as cycle, yoga, TRX® and Piyo; signature UFC GYM programming such as Circuit Breaker and Muscle Makeover; and MMA-inspired group fitness classes such as Boxing and Kickboxing Conditioning. Youth programming for kids ages six and older will be offered to support fitness for the whole family.
Starting immediately, prospective members may reserve exclusive founding member rates.
