I love the family dynamic at this gym. I feel highly motivated to make progress and changes without feeling over pressured or alone in my weight loss journey. The facility is sparkling clean and every single member of the staff is welcoming and professional. More...

I love the energy and vibe when I walk in. The front desk welcome and are very engaging to the point I feel like I work with them. Ever since I first stepped in and during my free trial period, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time. The coaches are hard core yet supportive and guiding. Every time I walk in I always know I'll be pushed and waking up the next day hella sore. I feel incredibly happy to be part of the family at UFC and proud to be back into boxing, kickboxing, and training. More...

I've been a member now since October of 2018 and I've never experienced a gym like this. I used to waste so many memberships in the past 5 years with NYSC, Planet Fitness, Blink, and Retro Fitness because (and I didn't know this at the time) the traditional method of working out was monotonous and uninteresting to me. I work in Staten Island and live in Queens so every morning on my way to work I stop by this SOHO location and their hours are perfect (6 am to 11 pm on some weekdays). Luckily upon signing up I was given free training sessions. I'll admit I expected this upon arrival and looked at it as a sales pitch but nonetheless I took advantage of the offer and it was a blessing in disguise! Jeff has been my personal trainer since October of 2018 and I've not only gotten stronger but I've learned so much as well! I've learned all about proper form, functional fitness, the value of exercises requiring compound movements, dieting and discipline. I've attended the Boxing/Kickboxing conditioning classes, jiu jitsu classes, DUT (Daily Ultimate Training), Muay Thai personal training, Kickboxing and Boxing fundamentals classes and I've made friends and learned so much. I like attending these self defense classes during my rest days from strength training due to the emphasis on technique rather than overloading the body so there is ALWAYS something to do even on your off days.I would highly recommend anyone who wants to improve themselves to join this gym ESPECIALLY if you're a newbie like me.

I really enjoyed my time here for the summer! Specifically, training with Coach Justin was a highlight. I felt like he really cared about helping me to reach my goals and pushed me hard during sessions while still maintaining a friendly and open attitude. He answered all of my questions, made new exercises less scary, and even drafted a workout plan for me after I go back to school. I would absolutely recommend Coach Justin for anyone looking for one-on-one coaching. I feel stronger now that I have worked out with him and now we are friends! More...

What can I say about UFC gym Soho? I like the gym, it took a little bit for me to get used to the atmosphere but that is more of a me thing than a them thing. I have to say one of the best decisions, for me, was to get personal training package and lucky enough to get Coach Oscar. He is knowledgeable and professional. Able to help me modify with my injuries (both with his exercises and concerns I might have for other exercises). He is encouraging and pushes you to do things that you THINK you can't do. He also isn't all about sessions with him, he encourages taking classes in conjunction to PT. He also believes it's good to get to know the other coaches as he believes they all bring something different and special to the table. Classes are tough but the coaches promote good form in ALL activities - whether it's a punch or a burpee, they do not want people to get injured and they want people to get the most out of what they do. I haven't taken classes with all of the coaches yet but the ones I have are really phenomenal. If you are consistent they remember you and great you. And when you don't show up they ask why and if everything is ok. I don't see it as a "fight gym" and don't see it as a place to train for a UFC fight but that is my personal opinion. Evening classes do get crowded and instructors try to accommodate the best they can. Oscars DUT class is intense but great, as well as Xaviers conditioning classes. The other members are pleasant and my interactions with members have been great. With class suggestions and Coach suggestions and over all just females helping females being better and not breaking each other down. Can't say it's all members but the ones I have encountered.

This place has become a second home. The staff is incredibly inspiring and encouraging. The equipment is well taken care of and there aren’t any big egos ruining the camaraderie. The coaches are second to none and the classes leave everyone dropping and gasping so I would say they’re effective too ;)? More...

I've been at UFC for almost a year now and can say this is easily my favourite gym in the city. Not to mention, this is the longest membership I've held at any gym. The coaches and even employees here really take the time to get to know you and sometimes make small conversations. Most employees at other big gyms won't really care that much about you. This is honestly what's kept me around this long. I love the boxing classes as well. The only cons would be there isn't as much machines or equipment as other big gyms. But to be able to take MMA or boxing classes AND have regular gym equipment, is a win win for me. More...

Today after 2 weeks of being away, I got back into the gym to box with Coach Norman! Lately with my crazy work/travel schedule it's been hard to train regularly. Even though my sessions are sporadic and usually weeks apart, Norman never gives up on me! He supports my goal to get back into crazy good shape this year (already down 22lbs since January), pushes me to move faster, hit harder and fight smarter. He also puts up with my bad memory (what's the combo again?) my slow feet and constantly forgetting to keep my hands up! All that said, seriously, if you're looking for a fun way to get back into shape and shred some stress, you definitely need to train with Coach Norman at UFC Soho! If boxing's not your thing, there's definitely something for everyone at UFC Soho, with a super supportive and positive staff to make you feel welcomed from day one. Literally the best gym experience I've had in a long time! More...

30 November 2018

I've been going to UFC for about a year now and love it. The staff is very friendly and it feels like a community/family more than a gym that you just go to work out. Norman is my favorite coach at the gym because he makes you work hard but still likes to have fun, definitely look for him if you want to get in shape! More...

I absolutely love this gym. I've been a member for over a year and am so grateful to have been introduced to it. The staff is super welcoming and engaging and it's an all around positive and motivating environment. I am overall happy with the gym but I do wish there was a little more space for calisthenics since i love jump roping and box jumping. I noticed the mattress firm downstairs closed down recently and I was wondering if you guys are thinking of expanding downstairs? That would be amazing!! More...

So this is a long over due review as I've been an active member of this gym for 2 1/2 years.  I absolutely love this gym because of their equipment and their space.  They have various classes that can be taken throughout the day or your can do your own workout with the variety of equipment they have.  For example, they have 80kg tire, battle ropes, a sled which you can add weights to, punching bags and the list goes on.  The locker room is pretty clean.  Lastly, I cant wait for them to take over the first floor as sleepy's is no longer there.

Great gym, really motivates me to workout cardio. Very happy with everyone, very clean, front desk to coaches, everyone is extremely nice and helpful breaking everything down from your contract details to how each exercise is performed. I can honestly say it is worth the money, especially if you need motivation for cardio. I suggest taking preworkout prior to each class because some can be intense and make you sweat ! More...

The classes and the staff are amazing! The staff always treats me like family and makes me feel comfortable. The facility is always clean including the women's bathroom. My only thing is I wish there were more workout machines and racks. If you wanna take some amazing MMA classes, I'd definitely recommend but if you're into mainly lifting then I'd pass. More...

I have been a member of this gym since 2014. Their BJJ classes are very detailed, technical, and fun! Andrew has been the most encouraging coach and goes out of his way to make sure that his students feel comfortable and capable in classes. He has become more than a coach and my teammates have become more than fellow students at the gym. More...

So I live in Elmhurst, Queens but I like to take the train ride to the city for this gym. The classes start early in the morning which is great for a early bird like myself. I was just walking by the gym one day and decided to go in. After talking with the manger and taking a tour I decided to sign up. I need a place to get in shape and clear my head. Plus I get to learn some kick boxing on top of that which is great. Focus is what I needed and this place helps me out with that a lot. More...

It’s only 2 days there and I really love the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the facility, their hospitality, and definitely respect their honesty in all humility. If anyone has any issues here it’s most likely because you’re not minding your own business, and looking for trouble with respectful people. More...

Even though it’s a commute, I come down to the UFC Gym for classes several mornings a week. I love the coaches (Jaymark & Noel & Norman in the mornings! ), they push you hard, but take the time to get to know and encourage their students. Every day, there is a different style of class to keep your body training (TRX, kickboxing, circuit training), all tied together with boxing elements. I tried many different boxing studios on ClassPass before settling for a full time membership here. The rates are extremely affordable for the quality of training you receive. Love it!! More...

Much like many others, I have a gym available to me at work but get bored very easily.  I have always been interested in boxing and had meant to check this gym out much sooner.  When I finally checked it out over a month ago I was pleasantly surprised.  Rich gave me an awesome tour of the entire gym and I loved it.  I was ready to join before the tour but the front of house staff (Gil, Rich, Javi, Ivan, Sixta, Marcos) made me feel like family.  If your even slightly considering joining a gym, UFC Soho is the place you need to be at.  It is about $100 per month but that gives you unlimited access to DUT classes (circuit training), boxing classes, kickboxing classes, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes (must purchase a Ghi), and probably other classes I have not even tried yet.  FYI one class is about $30 so if you attend a few you get your moneys worth easily.  It also gives you access to free weights, treadmills, machine weights, stair climbing machines, elliptical machines, bikes, and 150 lb. punching bags (something like 30 total but there is always one free at least 95% of the time).  There are also 3 bathroom stalls and 3 shower stalls with soap, shampoo, and conditioner, and 2 sinks with a dryer.  They also have towel service. The coaches are not any less amazing than the Front staff.  I mainly take DUT classes with Norman and he's great.  He pushes you to your potential and is just an overall awesome person.  I have also taken classes with Coach Brandon (teaches amazing boxing conditioning classes), Coach David (his DUT classes will leave you sore for days), and Coach Kenny (kickboxing class is a killer!).  Even the coaches I have not taken a class with yet are super friendly and will help you with any questions you have about fitness and technique.This gym has changed my life.   I love coming here and look forward to it the 4 times a week that I go.  The staff and coaches are top notch and the facility is huge.   Stop contemplating and just join and you will experience firsthand what I am talking about.  TRAIN DIFFERENT!

Sarah and I belong to a few gyms throughout the city and over the last year, found ourselves coming here almost exclusively. The classes are challenging for people at levels. You definitely get out as much or more of whatever you put into them. The staff is fantastic, with one particular standout. During one of the boxing conditioning class, Norman Bahaji identified some physical imbalances in our posture and put a personalized program in place for  each of us. In a matter of just several week, the results have been amazing. Training with him has been a game-changer. I can't say enough good things about Norman and the UFC Gym at Canal Street! More...

13 September 2017

First of all, the staff at this gym are fantastic. Always say hello and check in on me, always doing what they can to help out. I've been training consistently with Norman and besides pushing me to where I see changes in my physique already, he's just an all around cool dude. You can tell that he really cares about his clients. It's not about squeezing every last penny out of you--Norman will get you results and work out a plan even when times get tough. Some other points:-Classes are intense, worth the membership price alone-Staff works hard to maintain the place-Not usually super crowded at the times I go-Good selection of equipment - cardio, machines, free weightsAll in all, highly recommended.

This is "the" gym, I was searching for a gym that would allow me to express my strength n kick my ass at the same time, iv had it with bored training and other gyms telling me I can't make noise when I'm deadlifting but here I am at UFC getting stronger, getting my ass kicked, learning new skills, dropping the pounds and the motivation is amazing, this is training different. The schedules r flexible and the coaches are dedicated, the staff definitely made me felt like family and seem to know their members by name. Very comfortable atmosphere. More...

I haven't worked out in YEARS..I so I saw a Facebook ad for a 6 week challenge..I decided why not ..fast forward 5 weeks (present time) . .I have never seen a body transform the way my body is transforming. I will say this place has changed my life .. I absolutely love going and taking the classes. Every single trainer there is amazing friendly non judgmental. You beginners and advanced all working together. I get a workout for literally every part of my body. I have seen crazy results .. yes it's hard work.. yes it takes dedication .. yes it's fun as hell and yes I'll probably kick your ass no matter how big or small you are lol. I would recommend anyone to do this. Love Ufc More...

Really convenient location off the six train, friendly staff and I love the variety of classes they have. Also I really enjoy that they have plenty of classes on both the week and weekend. It's great for beginners or intermediate folks who want to learn or perfect their kickboxing or boxing.The instructors are super knowledgeable as well. The pricing is really good for NYC. They also offer more specialized classes if that's up your alley. One downside: The women's bathroom could be bigger and showers/toilet area needs some work. More...

So I decided to check out this gym for the first time using the free online pass. I loved it. First off the staff was very friendly and helpful. I tried the boxing conditioning class with Xavier. He saw me struggling a couple of times and motivated me to keep going. I'm definately interested in going again. Word of advice for anyone considering the boxing class. Buy your own gloves!!!!!!!!!! They are very cheap on Amazon. Although the gym is nice enough to supply you with gloves if you dont have any. Don't use them come prepared and buy your own. Your hands will smell horrible and quite frankly its gross!!!!!! Overall great gym and experience. More...

Good gym to train at and has very good trainiers as well, classes come with the membership it's pretty much having your own personal trainer and they give you motivation to train harder.

I have been a part of the UFC Family for a year now (Happy anniversary!!!) and i couldn't be happier with my decision to join. I've met a lot of great people through taking classes and managed to lose weight at the same time! Classes that are offered include MMA, DUT(Daily Ultimate training), Kickboxing, Boxing and Jiu-Jitsu. There is also a full weight room and cardio equipment along with locker rooms and showers. My favorite coaches include (but are not limited too)  Jaymark, Jesse, Noel, Hansel, and Xavier.  They are talented knowledgeable coaches that will teach technique, correct form, and push you throughout the workout. Come check it out and be a part of the family =] More...

I love this damn gym, it's my home, my sanctuary, my everything!. The staff here is AMAZING!, when I had to leave to China they made sure my account was frozen so I didn't pay a fully monthly membership while away. The training is unbelievable, I mean they have trainers from all kinds of martial arts from jiu-jitsu, to Muay Thai, to Boxing and even for people who are not interested in fighting they have the DUT(daily ultimate training) class and fight fit class, which are great cardio classes. I'm telling you they will whip you right into shape. You have been warned be ready to sweat, have fun, and enjoy the gym! More...

I liked it to begin with, because the classes challenged me and were not always same and predictable. I think almost everybody is way younger than me. There a pluses an minuses about that, but I like the mix of people there. I liked it more when they got the TVs working and started showing UFC fights. I hope they will do more of that. I really like that they got serious making people clear out lockers at end of day instead of using them permanent storage. There are probably enough lockers so everyone can get one even at busy times, but I saw it didn't initially work that way when a percentage of them were permanently locked holding some peoples' gear regardless if they were there. But, I don't see that happening now. I hope it stays that way. More...

First and most importantly, this gym is solid. The classes are challenging, the instructors have diverse styles, and just looking around at people attending this gym is inspiring. Freaking hard bodies everywhere. Yet, still, it's not all that intimidating. You do feel like "part of the family".If you use the gym, take classes regularly, etc., it's an excellent value. Fitness classes I've taken elsewhere are 20-35+ bucks for each class. No thanks.The only turn off for me was the signing up process. Before I even took a trial class, I emailed to ask about rates with no answer. When I did finally join, the pricing overview was salesy in a way that was uncomfortable. Not all of the options were presented to me, so I was so bummed when I realized I had spent more than I needed to (I would have loved to use that money towards personal training instead)HOWEVER, still love this place. So glad I signed up. More...

I love #ufcgymnycsoho for many reasons. 1. LOVE the staff/trainers. They really care about their members and want to make sure their fitness needs and goals are met. They give you the strength to power through and keep going. 2. My favorite: it's like family here!! It really is. Every day I couldn't wait to get to the gym to train and see the staff. They're truly the best and I wouldn't want to train anywhere else! :)I love how I can do personal training as well as DUT and Boxing. This gym has everything and you can change your routine up to keep it interesting and never get bored for one second!! More...

Really awesome gym - The trainers are really good and professional. The boxing class is one of the best, it'll push you to your limit, and the head boxing coach Sidney and Archie is amazing. I also love Tory's classes! The DUT classes here are also very challenging along with stepping it up in the ring. Those classes will help you work on your technique with other people. I like it, it's worth every penny and it's helping me reach my goals. Luis, the manager is really friendly and helpful, he makes you feel very welcome. So is the other guy, very friendly. However, the female at the desk feels very intrusive and pushy at times. Like she's trying to sell me something. A typical fake smile but really judgmental. She usually tries to have small talk, which is okay sometimes, but sometimes it goes overboard, and I feel like saying to her to mind her own business. It's kind of annoying when I'm trying to work out and I feel like I don't have my own space. A bit more privacy and respect would be nice. I think that's my only complaint about the gym. Otherwise, great spot! More...

11 May 2016

This is actually a really solid gym. I was an NYSC member for many years, but they closed their Soho location, which was my primary, so I tried a few classes here and was hooked pretty quickly. I've been going for about 2 months and mainly do the BJJ and lift weights.  + Variety of classes, including stuff like BJJ and contact boxing. You can find these elsewhere in the city but generally not under the same roof for one fee, so it's perfect for a dabbler like me. + They have all the basic free weights and machines, and they're all in really good shape (unlike NYSC where things could get run down at some of the locations). + Also unlike NYSC, there's a sense of community -- you get to know people pretty quickly. Reminds me of the community around Crossfit boxes, in a good way.+ Extremely reasonable price for a large range of classes AND free weightsMy one complaint: there's only one squat rack, so congestion during peak hours can be an issue.

**Update**I received a call from Jason, Co-owner of the SOHO location and what a relief! He was very very helpful and addressed my concerns. Also, I'm happy to say that I did get a chance to go back and take another class with another instructor, Kenneth. This class went really well! He helped us out as a group and individually as needed- I would definitely recommend his classes, you will definitely break into a sweat! Clean bathrooms, I really like the shampoo and conditioner although i wonder how crazy it gets in the evenings after 5 (I've only gone on the weekends so far and it's not too crowded).Overall, I suggest you go try it out for yourself and see if it fits your goals.I'm in it for the kickboxing classes. ;)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You know how you're all excited about trying something new and looking forward to it? Yea that's how I initiall felt when I first walked in to this space. Anywho, I went in mainly to take a class and I knew I was going to have to borrow boxing gloves but the smell really turned me off so I opted for new ones even though they were VERY pricey. I especially opted for new gloves because the rep said I was going to get the wraps for free.  I gave them my card, they charged me and then they started wrapping me up (mind you the class had already started). Anyway, the class was pretty great but I wish they would be a little more pushy on us, I didn't feel pushed and I wonder if it's because a majority of the class was women. When i got to a class i go for a full sweat, but the instructor was pretty chill, just giving instructions and letting us do the sets, as directed. I was actually worried about some of the students because they weren't doing the exercises correctly which means they could be doing more harm to their body then good but the instructor decided to wrestle with other students that walked into the gym instead of paying attention to us sometimes (i'm a yoga instructor and have worked with many trainers in gym and have been told many times how to safely do some exercises) - 2nd thing that turned me off but I figured, this is just ONE instructor, I don't know how the others will be.Final turn off- when I'm done with the class i go to change and check my phone, I always get a text on how much i get charged on my card. I saw that i had been charged more than what i was told for the gloves. Oh well, since I'm here and it just happened, they can fix it, I thought. WRONG! First, the guy who rung me up said he couldn't fix it and that the manager would have to adjust it and he would do it later that day - NOTHING. Then i call the manager and he says "we don't do refunds and we can take $10 off when you register" - no i want my money back, it's not my fault you made a mistake. The extra $10 and change has been so difficult to get back! I've spoken to manager TWICE, been back to see what is going on with my refund and he said he was looking into it along with some other lady who now claims that I wasn't supposed to be given that offer -  Not my fault your employees are lying to customers! Then i was told i was going to be sent an email copy of the request they sent HQ because none of the gyms can actually refund clients. - BULL! I have not received any follow up as of yet. Which just makes me more angry. Now it's not even just about the money, its about the principle. More...

Coaches push you beyond what you ever thought you could do on your own in a good way. Def a bad a$$ place to workout!

Just finished my second class today. Loving it so far. The instructors and staff members are all very helpful. Locker room and shower are neat and clean. Whenever I went during the day or at noon, it was never too crowded, which I love! Trying out their personal training service on Monday. Will update my review if anything changes. More...

Used a 4 day pass at the very end of July became a member in august. Loved the gym, but it's much more than just that. It feels like a dojo/gym/crossfit playground to me. The classes they have are pretty fun and intense. I took a Jesse Ryan boxing class and I woke up with abs the next morning. They have pretty sweet merchandise too. I buy my proteins/supps at this location. More...

After I wrote my previous review and his response I reached out to Jason the owner (as opposed to the no longer there manager Jason).  He solved the issue with my membership within 24 hours of me reaching out to him.  The new manager, Mark, was also helpful.  Grateful they quickly responded to the issue.

the place has alot to offer depending on what you seek.I also kinda feel like there is something for every one, under the umbrella of being active/training. They have a packaged deal- that comes with unlimited all access to the CLASSES .No long term contract is an attractive plus.Month - month, no long term commitment if it dosent work for you.Im personally all about classes & " functional" type of work like skill or I can use or maybe beat some one up with, or at least apply + use later.Coach TJoe and especially @ Brian Jackson are highly recommended instructors/trainers.Brian ( video) is a very skilled & dedicated coach with a wealth of knowledge in wrestling, jiu jitsu & MMA. He is an ex pro cage fighter , grappler & lifelong athlete.He is also a very dedicated and patient teacher with his pupils/clients.The jiu jitsu classes ( which I enjoy  the most out  of everything) have the same body conditioning and drills as all of the other classes  but then the benefit of  follow up with martial arts lesson with strong technical base. Its hands on & practical.You get in the cage, its relaxed but its upbeat & fun.There is also many  UFC fitness classes if weight loss & body toning is your goal.I think the manager @ Jason does a superb job of multi tasking the facility . THERE IS ALOT GOING ON - but things are always still well runningThe classes are on timeThe staff is friendlyThe entire is gym is clean & well ran.This is impressive because they do public/promo events where your favorite fighter or celebrity may pop in any minute, there is also a bikini competition team, as well as body builders that work out there as well.With all of its engaging activities, there's never frantic mania. So thats a thumbs up from me.Will soon be open 24 hours like some of their other locations More...

Jesse is the man! I was dripping sweat in the first 5 minutes of warmup, and he didnt let up for the rest of the class. Definitely going for his class again! The gym is also awesome. Very spacious for the neighborhood and well maintained. It has a real locker room and easily available clean showers, unlike a lot of gyms that advertise showers and lockers but have just a small room. And the staff is also very friendly and knowledgable.I'm currently have a ClassPass membership, but this will definitely be the gym to consider if I ever give that up. More...

One class down and so far so good. The Soho location recently opened up and its huge. The octagon is definitely cool and a draw but the space is large enough for a ton of free weights and treadmills and other equipment. They even have a section set aside for personal training / cross training (ropes, bells, etc). Gym is not crowded (yet) probably because its new. The locker rooms are decently large and they have 3 showers (kinda smells, but its a gym locker room so whatever). For a reasonable monthly fee you get to take a variety of fitness and/or MMA/boxing classes and they outfitted the place with plenty of weight and cardio equipment to sufficiently replace your regular gym, so really feels like you're getting 2 memberships in one - unlimited boxing/kickboxing/mma training and also access to a full service gym for weight training/cardio so its a great value. Makes my life easier so I don't have to join a boxing gym AND a NYSC/Equinox. The locker rooms may not be nice to NYSC/Crunch standards, but when compared to other boxing/kickboxing gyms in this city they're actually very nice. Most boxing gyms have a locker room the size of my bedroom and try to squeeze 20 dudes in there with 1 shower. Or course a gym that has a heavy emphasis on classes will be judged on the quality of the classes so we'll see how the classes go from here! Also, they have kids classes which think is cool. More...

Right now they have a promotion for 15 days free. I'm really into MMA and watch every UFC fight and decided this would be the perfect place to learn. They offer classes all day long and every type of fighting class. If you're coming here to work out only with out taking any classes I wouldn't recommend. But if you want to learn how to fight this is the perfect place. It's never packed when I come, although I thought it would be because of the location. The staff is so friendly and the trainers are great! More...

Had an incredible workout at this UFC gym. This is the second of many UFC gyms opening in the city. It's a great set up and incredible classes. They have everything you need for a full gym workout on your own along with the heavy bags, cage and a cross training area.I took Levy's DUT class....wow!! As hard as it was, it's really approachable for anyone who wants a full body intense workout. The trainers are motivating, knowledgable and all really cool There's a nice variety of classes too. Even if you don't want to train to fight this is the place you'll get a wort out that will make you look like a fighter More...
