In July 2012, a study conducted by World Health Organisation published by The Lancet showed that 61.4% of Malaysians above 15 years old are physically inactive making Malaysia the 10th laziest country in the world and the laziest in ASEAN. In Indonesia, only 29.8 percent of the people are inactive while for Philippines it’s only 23.7 percent. Meanwhile, our neighbour, Thailand is leading a much more active lifestyle with only 19.2 percent of its population being physically inactive.

In conjunction with International Fitness Week 2013, Fitness First Malaysia has an exciting line-up of activities for members and non-members alike, ranging from your very own fitness assessment to FreestyleTM Training sessions.


It’s time to evaluate your current health and fitness status and take the next step towards becoming the new, fitter you.
