THE GROUND FLOOR

Customer Service and Inquiry counter for members and prospective members

Customer Service and Inquiry counter for members and prospective members

Greeted by warm and helpful customer service attendants as you walk into the stand alone gym building. I’d say its already impressive alone from the road side view with its private space. Its comfortable walking in with a nice temperature. Overlooking the off Jalan Tun Razak highway with wide open view glass panels.

Impact Free Cardio Machines

Impact Free Cardio Machines

The ground floor consist of cardio machines. Far away from the weights. A nice place to just relax with the cardio or even a nice warm up before a good workout for most. Unfortunately its just either a highway view or housing view. would have been good if its a thin forest or river since we have ample in Sarawak. hahaha. but its good enough with the almost sound proof floor.

Treadmills on the ground floor is ample

Around 20 sets of cardio machine I think its really sufficient for a good crowd. I personally don’t cardio so im not feeling this floor other than the pretty ladies behind the counter with their sweet smiles. hahaha.. so moving on after getting info and a free trial. According to them, if you register online, you get 3 free trials. But only 1 if you physically walk in to inquire.

WALKING UP 1ST FLOOR

It provides a great creative workout for those who are bored with the traditional workout in the gym. I personally only use these when gym is not available but it does give you a great workout when gym is not in arms reach.

I personally don’t play with balls that much these days but believe me, when im more creative and have more time in hand, these weighted balls can prove to be a hell of a great workout if you know what you are doing. It doesn’t jacked you up with anything even though there is medicine in the name of this tool so be extra careful when you are working out with this Medicine Ball
