In 2017 BFL opened the doors and has been a great example of success for everybody involved such as members, staff and the community around it.
Joana runs the operations of BFL Headquarters in Coconut Creek, Florida. She has been married with Vitor Belfort since 2003 and together they take care of their most valuable company, their Family of 3 children( Davi, Vitoria and Kyara).
Vitor Vieira Belfort, started training Judo in a very early age and later on changed his martial arts to Jiu Jitisu. Under the legendary Master Carlson Gracie he became the youngest athlete ever to be awarded with a black belt.
At 19 years old he moved to the USA to compete in the early stages of MMA, known at that time as Vale Tudo.
In his first appearance in the cage, Vitor took just 12 seconds to finish his opponent, which lead him to join the UFC.
In a tournament with no weight limit and division, Vitor accepted the challenge and fought twice at the same night knocking his two opponents out and becoming the youngest champion ever. With fast hands and a ferocious power, he was nicknamed “The Phenom”, and with his powerful fists and amazing knockouts Vitor became a World Champion for the second time in a different weight division.
As an athlete he remained on the top 10 of his sport for 22 years, until he decided to stop fighting as a professional athlete, something unheard of in any sport.
On September 2021, Vitor faced the heavyweight Evander Holyfield in a boxing match. After dropping a left handed upper cut, Belfort knocked Holyfield out in the 1st round.
Married with Joana Prado Belfort since 2003 and father of Davi, Kyara and Vitoria, now Vitor is ready to dedicate his time to share all the knowledge gathered along these years.
Belfort Fitness Lifestyle was sculpted a few years ago by his hands using his own life as a model.
Vitor Belfort has put together his athletic background and his personal lifestyle compiling everything in a way where anyone could accomplish the workout. At his gym everybody wins!
Every single detail at BFL is a dream that came true to Vitor and Joana.
