Newcomer to the ‘high value, low price’ category set to revolutionise Asia’s gym scene
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach - 21 November
2019 - If your perception of a budget gym is that they are unmotivating,
uninspiring spaces to train and not that budget-friendly after all, this
newcomer to the category seeks to change your mind. Guided by its brand values of Smart, Bold, and Invigorating, GoFit presents members with a smart new way to train through
a no-frills, fuss-free gym experience. The first GoFit club in the world opened its doors to members at Central
i-City Mall in Shah Alam, Malaysia this November.
GoFit offers members a fuss-free, no-frills, technology-driven gym experience
Simon Flint, CEO, Evolution Wellness
A new concept developed and owned by Evolution
Wellness, Asia's leading health club operator whose portfolio
also includes Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First, GoFit is the latest addition
to Asia's 'high value, low price' gym category and is poised to change the way
people think about budget gyms. With membership prices starting from RM89
(~USD21), GoFit is not just affordably priced, but also very well equipped with
a wide range of cardio, strength and Olympic lifting equipment catering to all
levels of gym goers -- from the new-to-fitness customer to the more serious
fitness lover. It keeps membership prices low by using technology as an enabler,
self-service approaches, and a low staffing model.
"Across Asia, the awareness around the need to be less sedentary and
live an active lifestyle continues to grow. As market leaders, we recognised a
space in the market and a unique opportunity for us to embrace and develop a
new brand in the fastest-growing industry segment of high value, low price
fitness clubs. Through GoFit, we're looking to increase accessibility to
quality fitness facilities, and help more people get fitness into their lives,"
said Simon Flint, Chief Executive Officer, Evolution Wellness.
"GoFit's no-frills concept effectively removes a barrier for those who
see cost as a reason for not exercising, whilst still allowing them to engage
in fitness in a modern, high quality and technology-driven environment," he
At a GoFit club, access is gained through an app for increased security,
which facilitates 24/7 operating hours should the demographic require it, while
a self-managed membership system makes it easy for members to purchase add-on
services such as a session on the HydroMassage Lounger1, or a
FitQuest fitness assessment2. Members can also participate in a Signature
GoFit workout3, SuperCircuitTM; work out to
scheduled or on-demand digital classes, as well as stream their own workouts
onto the large screens in the MyGoZoneTM, so you don't have to strain
your neck or your eyes to watch a workout video on your phone anymore.
Nad Myan, Evolution Wellness's Franchise Development Director said, "The
budget gym segment around the world has experienced exponential growth in
recent years, but we feel that there is still a lot of room for growth for this
category here in Asia. We're excited at GoFit's potential to change the way
people think about budget gyms, and we'd like to invite fitness-loving
entrepreneurs and individuals to join us in doing so. We have a competitive
licensing programme that we believe is the most attractive fitness business
platform for those looking to venture into the vibrant fitness industry in Asia
and beyond, with the expertise and commercial support of Asia's leading health
"We have successfully combined our industry knowledge and learnings with
our team's global experience to create an opportunity for our partners to enter
the industry with a low investment, attractive ROI and low operational
overheads by leveraging our technology platforms. GoFit has already attracted a
great deal of consumer and investor interest that will see this new brand grow
rapidly, providing more choices and better opportunities," Myan added.
