“We are eager to spread the message that ‘prevention is better than cure.’ Investing in your health and placing high priority on it is one of the best investments you could reward yourself with, which will reap long term.”

Recalling the idea of opening Fitness Zone in Kiulap, Wu Chun said “We started at The Mall for the first Fitness Zone branch. But my vision was to expand, so I said to myself, “Why not provide a bigger place to accommodate more Bruneians? That is when the Kiulap branch was built (back in 2007).”
