UFC Gym’s (Be a) Knockout Challenge for Women
UFC Gym Hendersonville is hosting a women’s only (Be a) Knockout Challenge just in time for summer, beginning on April 18, 2016, and running for six weeks. While women are encouraged to participate in all of our regularly scheduled classes and programs at UFC Gym Hendersonville, this challenge is tailored specifically for women to focus on areas in which most women want to see improvement, especially for upcoming warm weather activities and summertime vacations and trips.
But UFC Gym Hendersonville’s (Be a) Knockout Challenge is more than just a prep-for-summer bootcamp—though it will whip you into shape just in time for beach weather. The (Be a) Knockout Challenge is also a comprehensive health and nutrition challenge, where participants will meet every two weeks with our certified coaches to go over healthy eating plans that fit their lifestyle and any nutritional hurdles they may be trying to overcome. They will also be able to order any necessary supplements and receive full BMI and body measurements in order to be able to set up a six-week plan to meet their goals!
And of course, there are the workouts. Throughout the duration of the challenge, women will be attending two functional fitness classes of their choice each week, as well as two women-only Daily Ultimate Training (DUT) classes that we call BABES (“booty and abs!”)—for a total of four classes each week.
These four weekly classes, when combined with solid nutritional and lifestyle advice from our UFC Gym coaches, can yield visible and remarkable results in just six weeks. All participants will receive a t-shirt and the chance to win extra prizes. Our coaches will also vote for “Most Improved” at the end of the challenge and the winner will receive a prize pack and a free month’s membership at UFC Gym Hendersonville.
The (Be a) Knockout Challenge is open to both members and non-members of UFC Gym Hendersonville. Members pay just $40 to participate in the challenge, and non-members pay $150 with unlimited access to the gym for the duration of the challenge.
For any diet or exercise plan, no matter how rigidly you adhere to it, it almost always takes 6 to 8 weeks to start seeing the results you crave. That is what makes now the perfect time to sign up for UFC Gym Hendersonville’s (Be a) Knockout Challenge and see the results you need to keep going, just in time for summer.
For more information about the (Be a) Knockout Challenge or to sign up today, call UFC Gym Hendersonville at (615) 348-4150 or visit our website at ufcgym.com/hendersonville to learn more.
Nutrition Coaching Services at UFC Gym Hendersonville
It has been said that “you cannot outrun a bad diet,” and almost all experts agree. Statistics vary, but most say that weight loss and physical fitness is 70% what you eat and only 30% the amount and types of physical activity you do. So while physical activity is important and even vital, a solid fitness plan is nothing without the nutritional knowledge and plan to help it succeed.
Unfortunately, because most gyms and physical trainers are not registered dietitians and nutritionists, it is actually illegal for them to put their clients on a nutrition plan. This means that they can work with their clients on physical fitness for hours each week, day in and day out, but if their client is not eating a healthy diet, most of their hard work in the gym will be for naught. This law is meant for the best—a non-nutritionist creating a nutrition plan for another non-nutritionist when neither of them has the scientific education to back it up could definitely be dangerous—the inability of physical trainers to coach their clients in nutrition-related matters can severely limit their ability to produce the results that both the coach and the client desire.
For this reason, UFC Gym Hendersonville is beginning a partnership with dotFIT, an online nutrition and supplement coaching system that allows us, through training and education, to point our clients in the right direction. dotFIT was created and is maintained by a variety of registered dietitians and nutrition experts, and has pre-approved plans available for almost any preference and lifestyle. Our physical trainers at UFC Gym Hendersonville are now all dotFIT educated and certified, which means that they can work in conjunction with dotFIT resources to select and customize these nutrition plans for each client’s needs and goals—whether it is weight loss, muscle gain, athletic performance, or other fitness benchmarks.
UFC Gym Hendersonville is one of the only gyms in the entire middle Tennessee area that is dotFIT certified, and as such we are able to provide superior training and coaching for our clients and members. Not only that, but dotFIT offers superior, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)-certified supplements, for those that need help getting all their essential vitamins and minerals as most American adults do.
In the United States, supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so there are very few ways to hold manufacturers accountable for the ingredients they say are in their supplements. The NSF independently and objectively tests supplements for purity and accuracy, and supplements certified by the NSF can be trusted to actually contain the ingredients they purport to deliver. Those supplements are now available to all UFC Gym Hendersonville members through dotFIT, and can be an essential part of your overall nutrition and fitness plan.

What Is the Difference Between a UFC Gym and CrossFit?
Specialty gyms are becoming more and more popular, and with this popularity comes an increase in misconceptions. Both UFC and CrossFit gyms are extremely widespread, but how are they different? From UFC Gym Hendersonville, here are a few of our most important distinguishing factors between our program and CrossFit, as well as what we believe sets us apart.
- Class structure. With CrossFit, there is a designated workout of the day (or WOD) that everyone everywhere does every day. Sometimes there are specific class times, but other times people come into the gym at their leisure, perform the workout of the day, and leave. With UFC gyms, we offer a variety of classes throughout the day—up to twelve different types of classes each week. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, we allow our members to choose the classes and workouts that best align with their fitness goals, and structure our plan for each individual person from there. We recognize that different groups of people have different needs, and we have a structure that allows for customization and individualization to each person’s needs.
- Programming. The focus of the various classes we offer is not just on lifting the most weight or completing the most reps, but rather on functional fitness: using your whole body together in safe and realistic movements. To that end, we offer classes that promote a holistic fitness of the body and mind. Unlike CrossFit, when you walk into a UFC Gym, you will not see other members’ “scores” posted on a board for comparison. Rather than competition, we foster a community of mutual support that inspires each member to do their best, not someone else’s best. At a UFC gym, you are learning not just moves but a total skill set—whether it is self-defense, mixed martial arts, or just functional fitness in general.
- Accessibility. At UFC gyms, we want our programs to be accessible to all people. For that reason, we do not offer programs that people need multiple hours of training to participate in safely. Anyone anywhere can come into our gyms and participate in our classes freely! Certain moves may have to be modified, but there is no training required to prevent self-injury at UFC gyms. Not only that, but we offer children’s programming as well, so families can participate in fitness together hassle-free and set lifelong healthy habits at an early age.
- Holistic fitness focus. UFC gyms also offer personal training, because we know that all of the workouts in the world cannot make up for a diet and lifestyle that is not nutritious. Fitness is 30% exercise and 70% diet—which is why our trainers are available to assist our members with their overall diet and nutrition plans and help them see the way their workouts complement their diet in pursuit of their fitness goals.
There are many more ways in which UFC gym workouts can be differentiated from CrossFit, but we hope you will not just take our word for it but experience a UFC gym workout for yourself!

Why Everyone Should Focus on Functional Fitness First
These days, there are more ways to get and stay fit than you can count, and everyone has their own opinions about the best place to start and the best place to focus. However, one thing most people realize is that there is a difference between looking good on the outside and being truly fit and healthy on the inside. That is why at UFC Gym Hendersonville, we focus on functional fitness first for all of our members.
What is “functional fitness?”
Functional fitness is the difference between being able to perform massive feats of physical strength and being able to perform everyday activities without strain or injury. For example, we have seen people able to lift hundreds and hundreds of pounds on a press machine at the gym, then turn around and throw their back out trying to lift a suitcase at home. The reason this is possible is that being able to lift hundreds of pounds on a well-balanced and confined machine on the gym really says nothing about your ability to function in everyday life situations using various muscle groups and skills at the same time to complete tasks. This is where functional fitness comes in.
Functional fitness focuses on utilizing multiple muscle groups all at once, all together—especially the core. Stability and balance comes first and foremost from the core, so strengthening the core is the key to achieving stabilization in all of life’s motions. Functional fitness is about integrating muscle and joint movements, increasing flexibility and strength, and improving your performance at the gym and beyond.
UFC Gym Hendersonville uses several functional fitness strategies to strengthen the core while improving stability and balance. A huge part of our program is TRX training, a suspension training system that combines the convenience of machines with the balance requirements of free weights and the core strengthening of functional fitness principles to achieve an extremely effective workout that takes place in less than half the time you might spend on machines in the gym in a typical workout session.
We also incorporate kettlebells, sandbags, functional dumbbell moves, and more to supplement TRX training and create a comprehensive functional fitness routine that gets you truly fit and healthy from the inside out.
If you are ready to get functionally fit in a way that allows you to perform not just in the gym but also in life, consider a membership at UFC Gym Hendersonville. We offer training, equipment, classes, professional support, and so much more. Give us a call at (615) 348-4150, or visit our website at ufcgym.com/hendersonville for more information.

The Importance of Varying Your Exercise Routine
There are many reasons why people do not stick with an exercise or fitness routine, but the most common reasons boil down to two common themes:
- People are bored.
- People are not seeing results.
Fortunately, there is one simple tweak you can make to your exercise routine that will avoid both of these common pitfalls: vary it up!
If you do the same thing for fitness and exercise day in and day out, your body will only be challenged by it in the beginning. Sure, at first it is hard to run 5 miles per day, but if you run 5 miles per day every day, your body will eventually adapt and muscle memory will take over in place of actual hard work. You will then begin to plateau, and see fewer and fewer results as time goes on.
Not only that, but your brain will get used to the activity as well, leading to boredom and lack of engagement, and you will begin to feel like working out is a drudgery and not worth the time it takes to put into it. When your brain is not engaged, neither is your body. The most effective workouts are the ones that engage both!
So how do you engage both the body and the mind at the same time in your workouts? The most important thing is to participate in a variety of different types of workouts, using different methods, and different muscle groups. If you like to run, run once or twice a week, then include other workouts like High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), weight lifting, or a class youhave never tried at the gym, even hiking or going on a bike ride! There are so many ways to stay fit and active that your body—and your brain—need you to do more than just a couple of them.
This principle is called muscle confusion. “Confusion” may sound negative, but it really just means keeping your muscles and your mind guessing, so they do not know what is coming next and still have to learn and adapt to keep up. Adhering to the principle of muscle confusion will not only prevent boredom, but also ensures a far less likelihood of hitting a plateau. With variation, you will get to see those amazing results that got you motivated in the first place.
The classes and programs we offer at UFC Gym Hendersonville meet this criterion perfectly.
- Work multiple muscle groups together
- Incorporate highly effective HIIT methods
- Are fun
- Engage both the mind and body at the same time
So whether it is functional fitness, mixed martial arts, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, UFC Gym Hendersonville has what it takes to vary your workout, prevent boredom and plateaus, and help you achieve your fitness goals—all while having fun and learning new skills that will help you in fitness and in real life.

UFC Gym Hendersonville Supports Local Vets
In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, 2015, UFC Gym Hendersonville will be opening our doors absolutely free of charge for all military veterans and their family members from November 11-November 15, 2015. Veterans and their families will be able to come to our facility, work out, and take any and all classes they desire, completely free.
Then, on Saturday, November 14, we will host an all-day charity fundraising event featuring a military-style workout as a part of our Daily Alternate Training (DAT) program, a highly effective High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercise. This event will be completely free as well, but we will be raising money for both the nationally recognized Wounded Warrior Project and the local Nashville organization, Nashville Honors Heroes.
The Wounded Warrior Project exists to provide programs and aid to veterans who have been injured in various ways in the line of duty. The Nashville Honors Heroes seeks to make Nashville the most veteran-friendly city in the country by raising awareness and creating a plan to synthesize the current milieu of veteran aid programs in the city.
Both of these causes are very near and dear to our hearts at UFC Gym Hendersonville because we are a veteran-owned company. Owner Sean Patton spent over a decade in active service, and upon finishing his time in March of 2015, he decided to create a business that would help him and other military veterans stay in shape and stay involved in their community. Patton is also the chairman of the board of directors of Nashville Honors Heroes, and he hopes that UFC Gym Hendersonville will be a positive force in the Hendersonville and greater Nashville community when it comes to reaching out and giving back to all of our beloved veterans.
UFC Gym Hendersonville also offers 10% off monthly membership for military veterans year-round.
We are proud to be a small part of helping veterans in middle Tennessee as they transition into life at home, and we hope our community will join us in supporting our vets and raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project and Nashville Honors Heroes .

Youth Programs Help Prevent Bullying at UFC Gym Hendersonville
At UFC Gym Hendersonville , we pride ourselves on being the most family-friendly gym in the Hendersonville area. We are looking forward to many years of helping youth in and around Hendersonville to learn valuable MMA-based techniques, adding to their confidence, reduce rates of childhood obesity, and help fight the good fight against adolescent bullying.
The first Monday of October, with this year falling on October 5, 2015, is World Bullying Prevention Day. Bullying is a very real problem that faces many children each and every day. If left unaddressed, bullying can lead to increased rates of abuse and addiction well into adulthood. We support efforts to raise awareness on World Bullying Prevention Day , but we also want to work all year round to do our part in addressing the problem of adolescent bullying.
That is why bullying prevention and self-defense are such a core part of our youth MMA program at UFC Gym Hendersonville. Our daily youth MMA class will be comprised of a combination of functional fitness, MMA training, self-discipline, self-defense, and empowerment/confidence rituals to keep kids fit and prepared. Students will be able to face situations in school or in society where they might be called upon to de-escalate a situation by protecting themselves or others.
Our anti-bullying curriculum will be integrated into the classes where kids ages 6 to 12 will be able to learn valuable life and fitness lessons, all taught by our qualified and compassionate instructor, Logan Nash.
The youth MMA class will take place at the same time as many of our early evening adult classes, so children and families will be able to attend UFC Gym Hendersonville together and attend classes concurrently. In today’s fast paced world, the time for children and parents to spend together sharing a common experience is invaluable!
UFC Gym Hendersonville will also be offering an additional youth Brazilian jiu-jitsu class for ages 6 to 12 and up to 15, which will be fully accredited by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) and taught by our resident jiu-jitsu black belts Cory Robison and George King. Youth jiu-jitsu, which will be offered gi or no gi, will serve especially well as a transitional class for teens to hone their skills before transferring to adult jiu-jitsu classes. Not only that, but jiu-jitsu is a non-striking martial art—instead of escalating a physical confrontation by hitting back, your child will learn to be able to protect themselves and others, controlling their attacker while calling for help from an adult. This protects everyone involved as jiu-jitsu is like fighting fire with water, not fire with more fire. UFC Gym Hendersonville is the only IBJJF-accredited gym in the Hendersonville area, so this is not an opportunity for your child to miss!
Full class schedules will be released on our website and on Facebook soon, so keep up with all the latest at ufcgym.com/hendersonville and facebook.com/ufcgymhendersonville !
The Health Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes in Hendersonville, TN
Most of us are constantly on the lookout for new ways to get in shape without subscribing to the age-old methods of running for hours on a treadmill. With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes at UFC Gym in Hendersonville , our expert staff provides you with numerous health benefits. The best part? You never feel like you are working out—you no longer dread the traditional painstaking boredom that accompanies long and lonely cardio sessions.
Not only does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu help exercisers to lose weight and tone up, it also teaches valuable self-defense skills and mental discipline. While many associate Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with professional competition, about ninety to ninety-five percent of members here at UFC Gym take lessons for the following health benefits:
- Lose Weight: Summer may be behind us, but you do not need to wait until swimsuit season returns to start your weight loss journey here in Middle Tennessee. In a one-hour Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class, you can burn between six hundred and one thousand calories—even more depending upon how much energy you are willing to exert! Because you are learning a new and valuable skill, you will never feel plagued by boredom or a desire to quit early. From just a few classes a week, most of our clients make enormous strides in their weight loss journeys through taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu courses at UFC Gym. Besides shedding pounds, joint health and muscle mobility increase. By stretching the back, hips, knees, and legs into unique positions that do not normally occur in daily life, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trains the body to function in a different, more efficient and flexible manner.
- Self Defense: There are so many different martial arts forms to choose from, but in terms of self-defense, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is certainly the most useful. When the Ultimate Fighting Championship was first founded, each form of martial arts competed against each other, and Jiu-Jitsu always won as the best form of self-defense. Why? Because Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not based on striking, but on putting an offender in an inferior position so they are incapable of following through with a hit. The basic philosophy is to fight fire with water, rather than fighting fire with fire. Rather than giving a clear advantage to those with heavier physical assets, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu rewards people who have built superior techniques and leverage through their practice. You do not have to be bigger than your opponent to defend yourself.
- Stress Relief: The feelings that accompany a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lesson are similar to those that one feels at the end of a Yoga class—relaxation and a clear mind buzz with happiness when leaving the studio. By taking on such an enormous endeavor that requires mental discipline, you are training your mind to focus and be aware of your surroundings. This awareness is useful not only inside the UFC Gym in Hendersonville, but in every facet of your life.

Learn Anti-Bullying Techniques With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu In Middle Tennessee
The practice of bullying is a sad reality that haunts every generation, taking on a variety of forms. While physical assault exists, there are several other ways in which a child can experience the harsh consequences of this hateful behavior. Verbal bullying, like name calling and teasing, is widely prevalent, as is social bullying—spreading rumors, breaking up friendships, and ostracizing individuals. With so many different technological outlets in today’s advancing world, there are more forms than ever of cyber-bullying; text messages, e-mails, and social media platforms yield a slew of new opportunities for bullies to launch their attacks.
The short-term effects of this bullying behavior are severe, and need to be addressed with our children in Middle Tennessee . Depression and anxiety become unwanted companions, and kids begin to suffer from increased feelings of sadness and loneliness. Anger is also a common and dangerous emotional response to bullying, as is low self-esteem. All of these reactions can manifest themselves into physical ailments, and in worst-case scenarios, suicidal thoughts may arise.
Even more detrimental are the long-term effects that bullying causes. Due to the social implications of suffering from bullying, interpersonal difficulties become an unfortunate fact of daily life. This includes feelings of fear and avoidance of new social situations. Bullying also leads to a drastic reduction in occupational opportunities, limiting the job enhancement possibilities as they grow up and enter the professional field.
Most importantly, children who experience bullying begin to form a negative self-image, perceiving themselves as easily victimized and become overly sensitive to interpersonal reactions. This sense of low self-esteem greatly harms a child’s ability to adjust to the world both personally and professionally.
At UFC Gym in Hendersonville , we offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes to kids from ages six to twelve in order to help them gain confidence and learn anti-bullying techniques. First and foremost, we teach a no-strike practice; kids learn how to defend themselves against physical bullying without harming the other person. With this self-defense practice comes the knowledge that one should never initiate a physical confrontation, but rather learn how to control the situation while waiting for help to arrive.
A sense of confidence is one of the main benefits that our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes instill in children. Through establishing discipline and responsibility, kids become more aware of the power of their bodies and their minds to work in tandem, and find a sense of gratification through their determination and blossoming self-awareness. We offer these classes every day, and kids can participate as often as they want.
To find out more about our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for anti-bullying techniques, call UFC Gym in Hendersonville today.
The Benefits of Functional Fitness Training with UFC Gym in Hendersonville, TN
The benefits of a healthy and consistent fitness regime can change someone’s entire life. On a daily basis, we use our bodies in thousands of ways. Carrying grocery bags, bending down to pick up a pen, or simply climbing the stairs require more effort and exertion than often realized. The body is constantly maneuvering in a myriad of ways, and it is essential that we practice a daily routine to maintain its health. The importance of our muscles, bones, and joints should not be underestimated.
At UFC Gym in Hendersonville, we provide classes and private coaching sessions that focus on functional fitness. Our ultimate training class is offered everyday and consists of a collection of exercises that work each muscle group on a functional level. These exercises increase strength and resilience, making the performance of daily tasks less wearing on the body.
Through functional fitness classes and private coaching sessions at UFC Gym, our clients reduce their risk of injury and lead healthy, more energetic lives. Boasting a supportive community atmosphere, our gym welcomes all people to join these classes, regardless of current fitness levels.
There are many reasons to sign up for a functional fitness class at UFC Gym in Hendersonville . First and foremost, working with a coach promotes a sense of accountability that may otherwise not exist. Our devoted and inspiring functional fitness coaches help you remain committed to your fitness regime. Often, independent workouts yield a sense of boredom, and exercisers will eventually give up before they have reached their goals.
Additionally, it is easier to maintain consistency in workouts with a built-in support system. Through group exercises and the coaching of a certified trainer, clients develop a passion for working out, rather than viewing it as a dreaded necessity. Our coaches teach proper form and technique, ensuring that you are practicing your exercises in a manner that will prevent injury and obtain efficient results.
In order to live an ideal life, functioning at our optimum capacity, we need to practice daily exercises that support the strength and health of our bodies. Whether you are looking to lose weight, tone up, or simply feel more energized throughout the day, the functional fitness training at UFC Gym in Hendersonville will help you to achieve the physique and health of your highest potential.

“Train Different” At the UFC Gym In Hendersonville, TN
Even if summer is halfway behind us, it is never too late to get into the best shape of your life. Do you want to dedicate yourself to becoming more active and fit, but cannot find motivation at a standard gym?

So what does it mean to “Train Different?” The concept is simple: if you want to look and feel like an athlete, you need to train like an athlete. This is exactly what we offer at UFC Gym Hendersonville . Classes engage both the mind and body, focusing on a range of movements in a fun and attentive atmosphere. We offer a variety of unique features that make it the optimal place to get into the best shape of your life:
- Education: One of the most common reasons people are reluctant to join a gym are a lack of knowledge. When searching for fitness and nutrition information online, thousands of contradictory websites feed us incorrect information that becomes impossible to digest. At UFC Gym Hendersonville, our trained professionals provide accurate education and comprehensive customizable plans to help you achieve your fitness goals.
- Class Versatility: Avoid routine. Stay engaged. Instead of getting on the elliptical and repeating the same movement for an endless hour, our classes offer variety, so it never feels like a chore. Let’s face it, most of us do not have the time to spend two hours a day at the gym, working out in complete solitude and relentlessly following the same boring routine. Whether you want to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, take a cardio kickboxing class, or experience the best circuit training available, UFC gym allows you to exercise your body with functional versatility, rather than monotony.
- Empowerment: Our coaches empower clients to feel better about themselves from the inside out. Not only will you achieve a fitter physique, but the special techniques and exercises you learn will also increase self-confidence and promote an abundance of energy.
- Affordability: Standard boutique gyms and martial arts studios typically cost between $120-$180 a month and at traditional gyms you are merely pay to use the facility’s boring equipment. At UFC Gym Hendersonville, we offer both circuit training and martial arts classes along with traditional gym equipment helping you create personal and solution-based plans to help you reach your goals; all for thirty to fifty percent less the cost than most other class-based gyms!
- Community Curriculum: Our gym offers a wide range of classes for kids as well as adults. You do not have to stick your kid in a daycare just so you can have a couple of hours to workout. We engage children in a variety of physical activities that teach discipline and self-confidence, as well as featuring an anti-bullying curriculum. Our goals are to teach children how to stand up for themselves and promote healthy conflict resolution. In addition, we offer self-defense classes for women, empowering them with the ability to successfully defend themselves in compromising situations.
Our coaches range from world-class martial arts champions to expert trainers with advanced degrees in kinesiology, allowing you an endless wealth of education in a diverse amount of martial arts and functional fitness arenas. In just one class, you can burn up to 800-1000 calories without the dreaded feeling that accompanies a traditional workout. Instead, each class comes with a sense of enjoyment and fulfillment, engaging muscles you may not have ever discovered on your own. Our small group classes ensure that we can focus our time on each client, exhibiting the personalized attentiveness needed to achieve success.
With endless variety and personalized attention, UFC Gym Hendersonville allows you to learn the true definition of working out differently, with a focus on education, pristine technique, and exceptional results. Come see for yourself!
