members on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, and will open its doors for
workouts in early 2014.
“I’m excited to partner with UFC GYM to open another
location so soon after the successful opening of our first Oahu gym
nearly two years ago,” said Hilo, Hawaii’s Penn in a
press release distributed by the UFC on Monday. “We wanted to
expand on the west side of the island to continue to share our
workouts and lifestyle that have proven successful not only for our
members, but for me, personally, as well as many of the
world’s most elite UFC athletes.”
