TEN years is a milestone that was marked by Fitness Zone, Brunei’s number one health club, yesterday with the opening of a new wing in its main branch in Kiulap.

Supporters of the health club made their way to Fitness Zone’s biggest branch in Kiulap to celebrate the happy occasion. Present at the event as the guest of honour was Minister of Health, Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Adanan Begawan Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Seri Setia Hj Mohd Yusof. Also present at the event were Yang Berhormat Pehin Kapitan Lela Diraja Dato Paduka Goh King Chin; ambassadors and high commissioners to Brunei; senior officers from the Ministry of Health; and members, family and friends of Fitness Zone.

A buzz of excitement filled the air as the event began with drums and Wu Shu performances by students from Chung Hwa Middle School, BSB.

This was followed by a speech from Fitness Zone Managing Director, Wu Chun, popularly known as Chun, where he said, “Working in the fitness industry for such a long time isn’t easy… In the past 10 years, I am confident to say that Fitness Zone has brought a major change to the fitness industry in Brunei.”

He added that that being in the fitness industry, one of the challenges has been creating fun in the traditional exercise regime. “Nowadays, the equipment is better and we see innovations that make exercise more interesting and inspiring. Instead of being a chore, Fitness Zone introduced new ways of training and has become something that Bruneians love and then it becomes a part of their lives,” added Chun.

Following his speech, Chun also presented the guest of honour with a token of appreciation which was a life time membership at Fitness Zone. This was then continued with a tour of the new wing where the guest of honour was guided around the new facilities at the health club.

On the first floor of the new wing, members can find two new group exercise studios, a comfortable lounge area for members to relax and unwind, boxing and martial arts training zone and more state-of-the-art cardio and fitness equipment. Chun acknowledged that apart from the normal exercise, people were also looking for other fun ways to keep fit, such as mixed martial arts, yoga and many more.

During the press conference, Minister of Health YB Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Adanan Begawan Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Seri Setia Haji Mohd Yusof congratulated Fitness Zone for its 10th anniversary. The Health Minister also said that the ministry has supported and will continue to support Fitness Zone in its efforts to create Brunei into a healthier nation. “Fitness Zone has systematic and professional instructors. We are looking forward to working with them more in the future,” said the minister.

Fitness Zone started back in 2003 at The Mall in Gadong and since then it has a household name in Brunei. It currently has two branches located in Kiulap and in Serusop. The Brunei Times
