WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR OPENING A FITNESS FRANCHISE LOCATION?
The average time it takes from the franchise agreement to the build out of a new franchise is 6-8 months.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BECOMING A FITNESS FRANCHISE PARTNER?
To ensure proper capitalization of the business, candidates must meet minimum financial strength guidelines established to open a UFC GYM® franchise. A background check is required. We will ask candidates to demonstrate that they did their due diligence and decide that they can succeed in our franchise system. UFC GYM is not looking for people who are successful at starting companies, but rather those who know how to follow an operations manual, have some entrepreneurial spirit within them and the desire to contribute to their community.
WHAT MAKES UFC GYM DIFFERENT THAN OTHER GYMS OR CLUBS IN THE HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND FITNESS INDUSTRY?
It all starts with our Train Different® approach to fitness, which caters to a diverse demographic. The UFC GYM franchise company has developed a programming within our clubs, which includes functional training, conditioning and technique classes. Based on our relationship with the UFC, we have access to the training, nutrition, and regimens of UFC fighters. Through close analysis of them, we have created MMA-style fitness programs accessible to everyday individuals and fitness enthusiasts. Even if there are competitors in our space that focus on a single mixed martial art or a combination of it, they don’t have the broad access to these athletes.
HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I MAKE AS A UFC GYM FRANCHISE PARTNER?
It depends on how much time and effort a franchise partner is willing to expend. At the appropriate time in the process, we allow qualified candidates to communicate with our existing franchise partners, who can relate their specific experiences. Further information on financial performance can be found in UFC Gym’s Franchise Disclosure Document.
