The goal was to offer a unique, premium, and wholistic fitness experience to members at an affordable price that couldn't be found elsewhere.
Over the years, we've served countless members and have impacted them in a positive way. They've achieved their best while training with UFC GYM.
As we navigated through COVID, 17% of all gyms closed permanently, and 40% of all members left the industry. And what was thought to happen was that virtual fitness and streaming services would take over. And as we've gotten on the other side of COVID, we've seen the opposite. We've seen more consumer demand than pre-COVID levels. And we're seeing consumers not only want to transaction into fitness but also want other verticals such as nutrition and recovery services.
To bring an experience to the consumer that allows them to train like a UFC athlete, that allows them not only to get to the best shape of their life, but do it as part of a community.
