Getting the word out about your fitness franchise is essential to having a popular grand opening. You can rely on the UFC brand for inspiring marketing materials to help bring awareness and build up publicity. With our trusted reputation and strong online presence, we’ll help you reach potential members through social media marketing campaigns, print advertising, local grassroots marketing, and digital and print media placements.

Together, with these techniques and invaluable tools, we can boost awareness of your UFC GYM franchise and help you build interest in your local community for years to come.


As you prepare for your grand opening, you’ll receive key hands-on training at a UFC GYM location, shadowing staff and understanding every job in the facility. During your pre-grand opening, you’ll also walk through the membership pre-sale process, which can help ensure your gym has sign-ups prior to the grand opening.

Our support does not end there, either. For your grand opening, you have access to an experienced team of passionate members the day your doors first open. Your staff will have gone through several weeks of intensive training, including brand experience, operations, sales, and more, so they are prepared to help run your UFC GYM franchise. You can expect everyone on your team to be just as determined as you are when it comes to getting your business up and running.


An essential part of preparing for your workout franchise’s grand opening is strong support. As a franchisee with the UFC GYM family, you’re paired with a dedicated consultant who helps you navigate this entrepreneurial experience. If you have any questions, your consultant either has the answers or knows where to find them, ensuring all your concerns are addressed. Additionally, our corporate team is just a call away to help you overcome any obstacles you may face. We’re always prepared for the unexpected and never afraid to adapt to new challenges.

Additionally, you can rely on our powerful network of UFC GYM franchisees for guidance and support. Every franchisee is dedicated to one another’s individual success and can provide the advice you need to navigate this experience with passion and determination.
