Standing out from the crowd
As with many gyms and fitness providers, managing memberships effectively while offering a high-end fitness experience is paramount to UFC GYM.
“We looked at working with a few Direct Debit collection companies, but it was the enthusiasm, energy, and expertise of the DFC team that stood out to us. Going with DFC ended up being a gut feeling, and it really paid off. They are experts in their field – and their understanding of the fitness industry is second to none.”Joe Long, Director at UFC GYM UK
“DFC provides everything we need to put together going forward, including Direct Debit collection from members and reporting capabilities. When combined with their flexibility and overarching sense of corporate responsibility, they were a true stand out.”Joe Long
Continuing their mission to bring professional-level fitness training to everyone, UFC GYM UK recently opened a new, 18,000sq ft fitness facility in Nottingham. The new Nottingham gym provides the UK with a revolutionary fitness and training environment specifically designed to combine the best elements of mixed martial arts and traditional fitness to create a family-friendly training hub.
