UFC Gym Promotes Sedlack to CEO, Mastrov Becomes Executive Chairman

UFC Gym, Newport Beach, California, has promoted Adam Sedlack from COO to CEO while Mark Mastrov, who had been CEO, has moved into the role of executive chairman, the company announced.

Mastrov and Sedlack joined UFC Gym as co-founders in 2008 and helped build the concept, a brand extension of the UFC MMA organization in alliance with New Evolution Ventures, from the ground up to more than 150 locations in 37 countries.

In his new role, Sedlack will focus on doubling UFC Gym’s corporate footprint in 2021, starting with the brand's debut in Las Vegas next month. The company has more than 150 locations in 37 countries and more than 800 locations in development globally.

In 2020, Sedlack led UFC Gyms to expand with 10 company-owned locations and 15 additional franchise locations worldwide. In 2021, the company plans its first openings in Japan, China, Thailand, Israel, Netherlands, Germany, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.

Last month, UFC Gyms launched its UFC FIT model in Puyallup, Washington. The model features a group fitness studio, weight room, robust cardio equipment, Olympic-size swimming pool, sauna room, full-service locker room, post-workout treatment area and indoor basketball court.

Beyond development in 2021, UFC Gym will elevate the member experience through partnerships alongside ABC Fitness Solutions, MyZone, Club Connect, and FORTË. UFC Gym will officially roll out RECOVERY to all new company owned and operated locations, complementing member workouts through cryotherapy, compression, percussion massage, and more.

"Looking ahead, UFC GYM's position in the fitness industry has never been better, and 2021 will be our biggest year yet,” Sedlack said in a media release. “Overall, I am very grateful to guide this team that represents UFC GYM's goal in bringing purpose to fitness through work ethic and passion to create a legacy."
