UFC GYM and UFC Foundation to Offer Youth Summer Camps
A break from school doesn’t mean there has to be a break from being active. UFC GYM®, the first major brand extension of UFC®, will offer youth summer camps at select UFC GYM and UFC FIT locations across the U.S. in partnership with the UFC Foundation. Presale and registration are available now, with camp dates and times varying according to each club’s local school district.
Open to children ages 6 to 12 years old and up, the summer camps will be centered around youth self-defense, with various UFC athletes teaching skills and techniques weekly. Camps will take place Monday through Friday, and will be priced at $99 for one week, and $299 for four weeks.
Participants will have the chance to experience UFC GYM’s world-class fitness classes and programming, including youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which integrates self-defense techniques, conditioning and skill-oriented games to improve motor skills, agility and flexibility. The program aims to teach discipline and build confidence in a fun, exciting and interactive way.
UFC GYM’s youth programming was created to build a foundation of athletic and motivational skills that apply in and outside of the gym. The youth-oriented classes combat the negative impact of screen time with the positive influence of fitness, while offering a space for children to develop interpersonal skills with fellow trainees and coaches. Classes such as boxing, HIIT, wrestling, MMA, kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are available for youth ages 6 through 15 at select clubs. To support fitness for the whole family, UFC GYM offers family memberships, with details varying by club.
For more information and to register for the youth summer camps, please visit or call your local club. A full list of club locations is available on the website at https://www.ufcgym.com/locations.
