Living a more active lifestyle is important in increasing one’s immunity to certain illnesses. It is imperative to stay healthy as we continue the fight against COVID-19.

This is what SM Supermalls President Steven Tan emphasized during the opening of the newest branch of the UFC Gym at the SM Gamepark in SM Southmall.

“We are all fighters, and we are all fighting against COVID.  And one of the ways to win this fight is to keep yourself healthy. Thank you to the UFC Gym for giving us this platform to work out and live healthier lives,” Tan said.

The gym opening was attended by UFC Gym CEO Adam Sedlack, UFC Gym Master Franchisee Mark Dayrit, UFC GYM Philippines CEO Mylene Mendoza-Dayrit, and Ms. Aura International 2021 Faith Garcia. Hosted by Ms. Earth Philippines-Fire 2019 Alexandra Dayrit, the event was filled with action as the demonstration of various UFC Gym classes was held.

Meanwhile, amateur boxers and mixed martial arts fighters showed their amazing skills and talents at Musclecontest Philippines’ ‘King of the Fight 9.’ Thirty bouts were lined-up for neophytes who were given the chance to display their skills in one of the country’s most anticipated events in grassroots combat sports. The two-day exhibition matches were held at SM Southmall’s activity area.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the biggest mall developers in the market that is SM Supermalls. We are very excited to what we can accomplish here and if we do it right, we might be able to have a studio in every one of their malls in the Philippines. I am really looking forward to working out this brand with SM Supermalls and really continue to drive awareness on why fitness with an MMA spirit is such a great way to get in shape,” shared Sedlack.
