KL Wellness City Sdn Bhd, the visionary developer of Southeast Asia’s first 360-degree integrated wellness hub, continues its effort to empower the community towards a healthier lifestyle by launching the first-ever Fitness Fiesta, which is set to be held in December 2022.
The 2-day Fitness Fiesta is designed to cater for participants of all ages and genders, features a line-up of physical yet therapeutic wellness activities and workshops tailored to empower consumers pursue greater quality of life. Activities such as Yoga and Fitness Challenge, coupled with various gastronomical delights served by local food vendors have been carefully curated to promote a better wellness awareness and fitness journey.
Taking place at KL Wellness City Gallery in Bukit Jalil, the Fitness Fiesta complements KL Wellness City mission to cultivate a lifestyle fully integrated with healthcare. Dato’ Dr. Colin Lee, Managing Director of KL Wellness City, believes that the Fitness Fiesta will further bolster local awareness on the need to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
He said, “Following the success of our recent 10-day Kuala Lumpur Wellness Festival in July, the feedback we have received from participants have been encouraging and many even offered various ideas. It is also encouraging to know that Malaysians are now placing greater emphasis on health and wellness since the pandemic. We also observed that there has been a spike in demand for such fitness events, and we hope the upcoming Fitness Fiesta will motivate like-minded groups and organisations to continue hosting such activities for a healthier Malaysia.”
Beyond wellness, Fitness Fiesta will also act as a growth driver for sports tourism and the local economy in Bukit Jalil. “Our main priority, as a township developer, is to empower the local community and raise the profile of the area, to make Bukit Jalil a beacon of wellness living. Fitness Fiesta is not only a fitness and health event, but it is also a platform where the local community and businesses can gather and discover new opportunities. We encourage their participation in Fitness Fiesta and our future community events,” Dato’ Dr. Colin Lee added.
