At every stage of your business journey, you will be supported by a team of experts who have years of combined experience in all of the key areas required for business success, including fitness, sales, marketing, operations, and technology.

At the same time, you’ll benefit from being part of a supportive and collaborative network of passionate, driven, and like-minded franchisees that believe in the product and who work together to solve problems, share ideas, and keep motivated.

"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 of 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."
Neil Rushby, UBX Franchisee
