UFC Hall of Famer and former two division champion, B.J. Penn will open his third gym on the island of Oahu, Hawaii later this year.
Penn’s new facility which will open in the Fall is located at 95-1249 Meheula Parkway in Mililani. The gym is a 30,000-square-foot facility and organized under a partnership with UFC Gym.
“I am so excited to continue the growth in Hawaii. Since our first club we opened more than four years ago, I knew that the way people trained at UFC Gym would be well received by the local community,” Penn said in a statement. “I’ve always dreamed of putting my name on a gym in my homeland of Hawaii, and I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to open our third gym with my partners at UFC Gym.”
This new facility will be open 24-hours a day.
Penn currently own two other facilities; one in the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako and the other at the Waikele Center in Central Oahu.
