Randy Couture to open local gym

Five-time Ultimate Fighting Championships champion Randy Couture is opening a mixed martial arts gym in Vancouver.

The Xtreme Couture facility will be located inside the Mavericks fitness club at 14010 N.E. Third Court, off of 139th Street. It is tentatively scheduled to open in February.

This will be the third gym owned by Couture, joining Legends in Los Angeles and Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas facility opens this week and will be the headquarter facility for Couture's gyms.

Couture said his gyms offer classes for all ages and abilities in each aspect of mixed martial arts. He said his target demographic is men and women, ages 18-35, "who are tired of training on a treadmill."

He said the gym will also train athletes for competition in professional mixed martial arts.
