Jennifer Lopez has given her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez's new UFC Gym in Miami, Florida her seal of approval after spending her weekend working out at the venue. The singer/actress was unable to join her man for the gym's launch on 10 August due to her busy schedule, but she headed to Miami over the weekend and was given a personal tour of the premises by Alex.

The retired baseball ace took to Instagram on Sunday to share a video montage of their visit to the UFC Gym, during which J.Lo tested the equipment by squeezing in a few exercise routines.

She was featured in the clip lifting free weights, using a lat machine, and sparring with boxing gloves - a sport she came to love after using it as part of the training for her role as a New York City police detective in her hit TV drama Shades of Blue.
