  • Buddy Day at Straight Blast Gym is August 17th


    Saturday, August 17th, will be Straight Blast Gym’s next Buddy Day!  SBG Buford will have a petting zoo, bouncy octagon, free martial arts and fitness classes, and more!!

    Buddy Day is an opportunity for the martial arts and fitness athletes of Straight Blast Gym to bring their friends to the gym with them, and participate in one of our group classes together.  Buddy Day is one of our favorite events of the year, as it offers our athletes a chance to share their experience at Straight Blast Gym with a friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor, free of charge.  No gimmicks, no catch, no games…just a morning of fun and fitness!


    Often times, the hardest part of getting in better shape and improving your quality of life is just taking that first step.  It can be scary to go to a new place, with new people, and participate in something that is outside of your comfort zone.  We’ve found that being able to attend class with a trusted friend is an amazing way to get introduced to your new program, whether it be Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Fitness Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Kids Martial Arts, or Group Fitness.

    But check this out …we’re going to make Buddy Day even sweeter!

    All of our guests who decide to become a part of the Tribe on Buddy Day will receive their first month of membership completely FREE OF CHARGE!!

    In addition, the Straight Blast Gym athlete who brought that new member will receive 1,000 Perkville points as a thank you for spreading the love about SBG Buford!

    In addition to having a fun and exciting morning of martial arts and fitness classes, Straight Blast Gym will also offer the following on Buddy Day:

    • Complimentary Coffee
    • Complimentary Fruit and Bagels

    So here’s how it works: If you would like to bring a friend to Buddy Day at SBG Buford. simply bring them with you to class on the morning of Saturday, August 17th, to whatever martial arts or fitness class you are going to attend.  Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes early so that we can get them set up with gear and signed in before class.  Your buddy is welcome to join you in any program that you are registered for at Straight Blast Gym.  You and your buddy will be partners in that class, ensuring that they have a fantastic time at the gym with their friends!

    Not a member of SBG Buford…no problem!! We’d love to have our local men, women, and children come and check out the gym and observe our martial arts and fitness classes, while enjoying the perks and activities of Buddy Day!!  Simply show up between 9am and 12pm and we’ll take care of the rest.
