With MMA Fight Corner having been born in Long Island, New York, it’s with great pleasure that we bring news via UFC.com of their plans to bring the brand’s first east coast facility to Long Island, NY (2020 Jericho Turnpike New Hyde Park, NY 11040). The 24-hour full-service facility is set to open for workouts in spring 2013 and will offer an array of programming for the entire family and every fitness level.
While the UFC continues their attempts to get MMA legalized in the state of New York, at least for now New Yorkers can begin training at the first UFC facility in the East Coast that will be called, The UFC GYM.
“Just like the UFC has revolutionized the world of combat sports, we are now bringing the newest innovation of fitness and training to the East Coast,” said UFC president, Dana White in the press release. “UFC GYM is for everyone who wants to have a place to work out and who is looking to change up what they do when they go to the gym.”
