We take a look at the gym MMA pioneer and UFC legend Urijah Faber runs

You think of Urijah Faber and your memory jogs to the sound of ‘California Love’ bumping on the speakers, as he would walk out to fight the absolute best in the world. The ‘Cali Kid’ is one of the biggest pioneers of the sport, and has helped or produced some of the biggest names in the sport.

Faber started his own facility in 2019 called ‘Urijah Faber’s Ultimate Fitness’. The 40,000 s1.ft. facility in East Sacramento focuses on getting people in the best shape of their life both mentally and physically. The gym thrives on the vision of inclusiveness, and is open to people from all disciplines.

Faber has maintained that the gym is not just for MMA practitioners, but can be used by people who want to keep fit, engage in physical activity or simply get healthy. The gym provides the best coaches with several years of experience.
