Alex Rodriguez to Open UFC GYM in Midtown Miami
UFC GYM announced the Spring 2020 opening of a 24,000-square-foot, multimillion-dollar fitness facility with state-of-the-art equipment and amenities, a fitness training recovery center, and a wide range of dynamic group classes in Midtown Miami. This UFC GYM franchise is owned by former Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez and will be located at 3635 NE 1st Ave., Miami, FL 22314.
Rodriguez, a three-time MLB American League MVP, 14-time All-Star, 2009 World Series Champion and CEO of A-Rod Corp., secured developmental rights for UFC GYMs throughout Miami – Dade County in 2017. The new Midtown location will be his second club, following his highly successful 31,000-square-foot facility in Kendall.
“I am excited to bring UFC GYM to Midtown Miami and provide the community with an unparalleled fitness experience and training program that I believe in,” said Rodriguez. “The Train Different programming fosters an energetic, inclusive community that is passionate about the same healthy lifestyle my family and I lead. I appreciated it firsthand in my Kendall club and I look forward to continuing this in Midtown.”
“We are proud to have a world-class athlete and successful entrepreneur like Alex as a part of our fitness community,” said Adam Sedlack, president of UFC GYM. “Midtown Miami is a dream market and we intend to provide the best version of our Train Different experience in our most state-of-the-art facility yet.”
