This facility is truly one of a kind and represents a positive shift in the local fitness industry, a step towards a healthier and fitter Pakistan. I haven’t seen a grander facility than this in Karachi by far. I believe it is important to incorporate fitness into our daily routine despite our demanding work schedules, we have to take out time and that’s what I do too. Maintaining a fitness routine keeps me energised throughout the day and with a state of the art place such as this, one is bound to have a good time.’

Also, in the last couple of years, the fitness industry has seen a sudden boom and everyday more and more people are interested in making themselves fitter. This, we believe, was the perfect time for a facility such as this to come about and make the fitness scene more grand. So with much assurance, I can claim this is the atmosphere for fitness that everybody has been waiting for.’
