Alex Rodriguez, one of baseball’s greatest players of all time hosted the grand opening of UFC GYM Kendall, FL. The now-retired athlete was looking for other business opportunities after his Mercedes Benz dealership in Texas closed in 2014. He landed on UFC GYM, as the brand combines his passion for fitness and family and has the same core values: strength, endurance, confidence, discipline and respect. Alex opened the Kendall location earlier this year and has plans to open more throughout the Miami-Dade County.
Alex joins a list of high-profile celebrities and athletes making the decision to enter fitness and food business investment space. Most recently, Gwyneth Paltrow and Serena Williams and Daily Harvest, Olivia Munn and Chef’s Cut Real Jerky, and Tom Brady and Purple Carrot.
UFC Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk came out in support of the gym located close to where she’s living.
