BRAVE Combat Federation has launched its first flagship gym, which located in Lahore, Pakistan. The Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion’s new gym aims to bring international standard fitness practices and combat sports to the country.
The launch was a huge success. It was attended by the superstars of Pakistan Super League Karachi Kings including Babar Azam, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir and Wasim Akram, a legend in the cricket history of Pakistan.
“It is a very good initiative by BRAVE Combat Federation to bring an international standard training facility to Pakistan,” Akram said. “Our athletes will surely benefit from the introduction of international fitness practices and standards.”
Ayesha Omar hosted the grand opening of the event which showcased the gym facilities and the expertise of the certified coaching staff. The Pakistani actress, model, singer and painter further witnessed the presence of star-studded guests included names like ARY network owner and BRAVE Gym partner Salman Iqbal.
Critically acclaimed Pakistani actor Fahad Mustafa, who is the host of one of the most popular television shows in Pakistan, also became a part of the larger than life launch event. People of Pakistan were given demonstrations by professional fighters Mehmosh Raza and Zia Mashwani, who have represented Pakistan and made the country proud through achieving victories against international fighters in the past at various BRAVE CF events.
“It is not your average gym,” BRAVE Gym, Lahore CEO Omar Ahmad said. “It is the antidote to your regular boring training facilities. We aim to revolutionize the fitness industry through our approach towards fitness and strive to develop the limitless potential that our athletes have to prepare them for international competitions.”
BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid also graced the event. He thanked His Highness Shaikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa for constantly developing sports around the world and said the BRAVE Gym is “yet another step we are taking towards developing the sport in all areas of the world.”
“We were thoroughly impressed with Pakistani fighters and fans when we became the first international MMA organization to host an event there and we’ve made it our mission to help develop the sport in the country,” the BRAVE CF president noted. “BRAVE Gym is exactly that step.”
