Where to Workout in Red Deer: UFC Gym

We promise the UFC gym isn’t as intimidating it sounds. Housed under the same roof as Motion Fitness, UFC Gym offers a wide range of group fitness classes and may cause you to feel like a total badass when you’re done your workout.

About UFC Gym

UFC Gym is designed for people of all ages and athletic abilities to train at the level of world champions, offering group fitness classes, functional fitness classes, martial arts, youth classes as well as personal training. The UFC gym utilizes the latest equipment for strength training, cardio, and functional training and might just be one of the coolest looking gyms we’ve visited. Seriously, the equipment there is all top notch stuff.

The Red Deer location features an Octogan, bags, and mats for martial arts training, Olympic lifting platforms, strength training equipment, free weights, and turf. Turf is a great place for foam rolling and stretching and agility type movements, adding cushion to reduce stress on your body as well as recreating real conditions in the comfort of the gym setting.

There are tons of cubbies to stash your stuff, change rooms and bathroom facilities plus UFC gym merchandise and supplements. This, mixed with all of the amenities at Motion Fitness (included in your UFC Gym membership), you have everything you could want or need.

About the Classes

It doesn’t matter if you’re into martial arts or not, there’s a class for everyone. Jessica hit up the Daily Ultimate Training class on a Saturday morning and discovered it wasn’t as intimidating as it sounds – it’s a boot camp style class!

The current lineup at the Red Deer gym includes spin, kickboxing, boxing, jujitsu, muay thai, OCR training, Pound and youth classes as well.

What I Loved Most

Going into UFC Gym I was definitely intimidated, thinking it would be geared more towards hardcore martial arts athletes, but was pleasantly surprised to find our class to consist of all ages and abilities. I absolutely loved working out on the turf and thought the whole facility had a cool look and vibe. I walked in unexcited to be there but walked out with a bit of swagger, thankful I hauled my butt into that workout. I also really loved the turf floor. It made for a nice soft surface to workout on and frankly, just looked cool.
