If you’ve walked past Pier C lately, you may have noticed that the UFC Gym located at 316 Sinatra Drive no longer has signs and the inside of the gym is empty. Yes, the gym has closed its Hoboken location but it’s not closed for good, it made its way over to Jersey City in April. Here’s what we know about the Hoboken UFC Gym moving locations to Jersey City.
The UFC Gym opened in Hoboken back in 2014. Since then, the gym has become a go-to for kickboxing, boxing, MMA training, HIIT, CrossFit, and more. Even Justin Bieber visited the gym back in 2019 for a workout!
Richie Vanhouten, owner and fitness coach at the Hoboken location – now Jersey City location – announced on the UFC Instagram page that the gym has a new location in Jersey City at 300 Coles Street on the corner of 18th and Coles as of mid-April.

While the reasoning for the location change hasn’t been given publicly via the gym’s social accounts, it seems that the Jersey City studio will offer everything the Hoboken one did, and more.
While he gave a tour of the new facility in a video, he explained that there is new state-of-the-art equipment that has the capabilities of working out every part of the body, new treadmills, new bikes, new concept roller, new punching bags, as well as a new MMA/Ju Jit Su sparring area and recovery area stocked with tools for members to receive physical therapy post-workout.
