UFC GYM has once again partnered with UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn to open the third UFC GYM BJ PENN signature gym in Oahu, Hawaii.
Slated to open this fall, the gym will be a 30,000 square-foot facility featuring a 24-foot Octagon, strength training and cardio machines, battle ropes, agility ladders, bag room, Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio and other functional training equipment.
The partnership with Penn, a Hilo native and two-division UFC champion, began in 2012. The other two UFC GYM BJ Penn locations reside in the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako and at the Waikele Center in Central Oahu.
“I am so excited to continue the growth in Hawaii,” said Penn, in a press release. “Since our first club we opened more than four years ago, I knew that the way people trained at UFC GYM would be well received by the local community. I’ve always dreamed of putting my name on a gym in my homeland of Hawaii and I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to open our third gym with my partners at UFC GYM.”
Founded in 2009, UFC GYM has more than 135 locations in the U.S., Australia and Canada. The chain offers a full-range of functional fitness classes, group and private MMA training, group fitness, personal and group dynamic performance-based training and MMA youth programming.
