EFC Performance Institute
A new state-of-the-art combat sports training facility in Johannesburg
Versatility is one of the main features of OUTRACE: thanks to the possible combinations of Apps, Movables, Components and the frame itself, it can be adapted to ambiences of every kind and to all sort of training applications. Combat sports training is surely one of these possibilities, as an OUTRACE structure could provide at the same time both physical preparation and technical training solutions, and that is the reason that brought the Extreme Fighting Championship to choose it for its new training facility in Johannesburg: the EFC Performance Institute.
This state-of-the-art facility is supplied with the best functional training and combat sports equipment and technologies available, providing an offer like no others in Africa for what concerns MMA. Besides a perfectly working mixed martial arts hexagonal ring in the center of the facility (with also the possibility to watch the matches from two wooden stands), the EFC Performance Institute has indeed a complete cardio, lifting and free weights area that includes the best training equipment from Technogym and Sidea.
Absolute protagonist of this part of the facility is the OUTRACE Avantgarde R3-750 structure that, as already said, provides both the possibility to train technically on combat sports, thanks to the Sidea boxing bags hanging from the rig, and to perform physical conditioning and functional training workouts with the frame and with OUTRACE’s Apps and Components.
The EFC Performance Institute has officially opened its doors to public the 1st of February, but it has already hosted its first event: in the last month this new facility has indeed been the main setting of the worldwide broadcast TV series “The Fighter season 2” (TF2), a reality show in which 10 of the best female prospects in MMA from all over the world live, train and fight together until the final clash (4th of May), that will tell who will be the winner of this edition. The main theatre of the challenges and training sessions of the contestants is indeed the EFC Performance Institute.
The facility will also work as a Training Institute for Technogym, OUTRACE and Sidea, becoming an international hub for trainers from all over the world and in particular a landmark for African combat sports and functional training.
The Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) is a world leading mixed martial arts organization, with over 150 of the greatest athletes exclusively contracted and 10 live events produced every year in completely sold out arenas, reasons why it is considered one of the most recognizable MMA brands in the world.
