UFC GYM® Coquitlam welcomes MMA Star Paige VanZant
to Grand Opening Celebration on Sat, Jan 21st
UFC’s Rising Star will be on-site for a Q & A, Demo and Meet & Greet

The excitement is building as MMA Star Paige VanZant gears up to attend the grand opening of the first UFC GYM® location in the Lower Mainland, in Coquitlam, on Saturday, January 21st.

UFC GYM® is known for it’s TRAIN DIFFERENT® approach that combines the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) and fitness. Located directly next to Steve Nash Fitness World at 3000 Lougheed Hwy, the 7,000 square-foot space will feature a 30 foot Octagon™ bag room, top of the line strength training and cardio machines, battling ropes and other functional equipment for dynamic workouts. Members will also have access to UFC GYM’s signature classes such as Daily Ultimate Training® (DUT®), MATRIX, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, specialized youth fitness training and a team of elite coaches.

The Grand Opening will be held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. MMA Star Paige VanZant will be on location from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm for a Q & A session, Demo and Meet & Greet.

VanZant is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Women’s Strawweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). After winning an amateur fight at the age of 18, VanZant became a professional competitor in 2012, making her professional MMA debut at UWF’s Tournament of Warriors finale against Jordan Nicole Gaza in Corpus Christi, Texas, winning by split decision. As of August 31, 2016, VanZant is ranked No. 12 in the UFC Strawweight Division.

VanZant gained widespread notoriety last spring when she partnered with professional dancer Mark Ballas on season 22 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”. The couple made it all the way to the finals of the show, finishing in second place, and resulting in VanZant’s popularity skyrocketing among audiences both in and outside the realm of UFC.

“We are very excited to open our second UFC GYM in British Columbia, and look forward to offering our members a new way to approach fitness and TRAIN DIFFERENT®. Our GYM will offer cutting-edge training techniques inspired by UFC® athletes and provide members with everything needed for the entire family to sweat, move and live a healthier life”, says Emre Ozgur, Director of UFC Gym®.

New Members signing up during the event can enter to win cool prizes that include a 60” TV, Skullcandy headphones, gaming console plus UFC games, UFC Training Kit and much, much more.
