Ultimate Fitness Centre (UFC) Gym, India on Thursday announced the opening of its newest location, UFC Gym in Manipur at Kwakeithel Road, Ningthemkol. The 10,000 square foot premium training facility is the first UFC GYM in Northeast India.
The launching of Northeast’s largest gym was done by Social Welfare Minister H Dingo in presence of MLA K Robindro and MLA Khaute.
UFC Gym Imphal proprietor, Rinkhui Shimray, said that with a signature UFC-style Octagon, boxing bag rack and premium equipment from life fitness, the gym provides a complete setup for MMA and fitness training. Members will be able to train in a premium facility with all the necessary equipment required to train like a UFC athlete. Additionally, the gym provides training programs for all ages and athletic abilities through access to a large variety of group fitness classes and functional training, he said.
Members interested in fitness will have access to a one-stop shop for their fitness needs through the functional fitness area, strength and cardio equipment and group fitness classes such as yoga, Zumba, spinning, and more. The facility will also offer youth programming for children above five years.
Sub-Licensees of UFC Gym Imphal, Rinkhui Shimray said Manipur has been the epitome in producing world class athletes for our country. However, there is no world class training facility here and that is what we want to provide at UFC Gym to support the current and future talent here. UFC Gym programming is designed to cater to the training styles of every sport as well as for people who are just looking to get fit and that is what's amazing about it, he said.
Master Licensees of UFC Gym India, Farzad Palia and Istayak Ansari, stated, "the craze for MMA in the northeast is unparalleled with a number of MMA fighters hailing from this region. We're hopeful of grooming this talent further at our UFC Gym Imphal location and helping them reach the international stage and hopefully, the UFC."
