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...

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...

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...
