"UBX ticked all the boxes for me"
When the UBX model was proposed to me, it ticked all the boxes. It operated in the health and fitness industry, it had a lower capital outlay than a standard gym format, and it was a well-established franchise concept with a new twist to it. It was everything I was looking for.
I looked very carefully at the UBX model. I'm actually not a boxing person, but I do appreciate that it’s a huge market. The thing that kept coming back to me was the low membership numbers required to make the business successful and the simplicity of the model.
Lawrence Bingham, Owner UBX Bath

"I just think boxing-based fitness is such a big thing at the moment"
"I had looked at numerous opportunities, including both traditional gym and other boutique fitness franchises. I received information on UBX and carried out a lot of research into the concept.
Boxing-based fitness is such a big thing at the moment. I identified the benefit of a model that means people aren't restricted by timetables; you just turn up; the trainers are there, and you get one-on-one time with the trainer every time you go in. For me, that was what made it really stand out from all the other opportunities.
I am excited to be one of the first in the UK to get involved with UBX. I’m looking forward to helping to make it a big success and to start building the brand here in the UK in the same way it’s been built in Australia and New Zealand."
