Celebrity Fitness celebrates first ever Malaysian Fitness for Charity event

Celebrity Fitness celebrates first ever Malaysian Fitness for Charity event
July 3, 2012

Celebrity Fitness staged its first 'Fitness for Charity' in Kuala Lumpur at the weekend with hundreds of participants joining in a fitness marathon including Zumba, Sh'bam, DNA Perrea, Body Combat, Element and Fast Fit programs.

Celebrity Fitness Malaysia Managing Director Choi Kwangho explained "unlike most charity events, Fitness for Charity is a good mix of dance, aerobics, stretches and really good pumping music. We know that many people like to dance and groove and what better way to do this than gather for a good cause and workout to fitness. We aim to spread the word that working out can be fun and also rewarding."

Event host Baki Zainal agreed, adding "I (was) honoured when Celebrity Fitness chose me to host this event. I get to work out with my fans, share the laughter and the joy and sweat, all in the name of charity."

Choi added "with the support of our sponsors, participants and members, we are pleased to have raised RM 15,000 within the month! We are truly grateful towards everyone's generosity and we definitely look forward to making Fitness for Charity even bigger next year."

All proceeds from this event went to National Kidney Foundation Malaysia (NKF) while, throughout the event, participants had the opportunity to visit the NKF booth to view the health education exhibition.

Participants also took part in some basic health screening and blood pressure check and were able to receive free consultation on kidney health.

In conjunction with Fitness for Charity, Celebrity Fitness introduced three of their latest signature programs with event participants being among the first to experience DNA Perrea (a dance that is choreographed using an eclectic mixed of familiar songs it is fitting for beginners); Fast Fit (an aerobic exercise with a combination of yoga, pilates and new school circuit training which simulate body movements); and Element (a combination of yoga and wellness class which focuses on healing the body, mind and emotions). Each of the programs were fully choreographed in-house by Celebrity Fitness.

The Fitness for Charity was made possible with the following partners: adidas, Boost Juice, Blackmores, Himalaya, Amber Chia Academy, beurer, Beyond Beauty, Tropicana Twister, Key Ng, Oh! Only Health, Nestle Fitnesse and Wangsa Walk Mall.
