UFC Gyms Bring the Octagon to Charlotte

UFC Gyms Bring the Octagon to Charlotte

UFC Gym Interior

Relax you don’t have to get in the cage with some tattooed muscle bound guy with cauliflower ears.  UFC Gym is all about the workout not the fighting.  With one UFC Gym location recently opening in Ballantyne and another on the way to North Sardis Road the mixed martial arts (MMA) workout concept is all about building functional strength.  They do this using a series of 1 hour, 1000 calorie burning workouts designed to get you into the best shape of your life.  As the first gym to combine the MMA training techniques in a non-contact atmosphere they appeal to a cross section of society.  CrossFit devotees now have another choice.

You can find me working the PR angle for restaurants around town and keeping the RT readers informed about the latest happenings.
