Leading global gym operator, Fitness First, is to open a brand new 16,500 square foot outlet at Setia City Mall. The new gym completes an exciting line up of major retailers that includes Parkson, Golden Screen Cinemas, Urbanfresh, Harvey Norman, Courts and Wangsa Bowl.

The new Fitness First club at Setia City Mall will be located on Level 1 and will be complete with stunning views of the mall’s outdoor park space, making for an exciting place to exercise. The club will offer all of the state-of-the-art facilities that Fitness First is known for, including its signature Group Exercise classes, all of which will be backed up by expert advice from its certified team of passionate fitness professionals.  

Setia City Mall is being developed by a joint venture between S P Setia and the Asian Retail Investment Fund, a fund managed by the investment arm of international property developer Lend Lease.

Setia City Mall Development Director, Robert Spinks, said: ‘The vision for Setia City Mall is to provide a holistic retail experience, where everything is under one roof. Having such an exceptional gym on board further enhances our retail offer, and will no doubt be a welcome addition for our customers.’

Shaun Measday, Managing Director, Fitness First Malaysia, added: “We are delighted to be joining forces with S P Setia and Lend Lease, and feel that Fitness First will be a tremendous addition to the what is already a very exciting retail proposition at Setia City Mall.  We are extremely positive about the potential of this new club, and we look forward to affecting positive change in the lives of the surrounding community in the years to come through exercise and healthy living.”

In addition to the major retailers, Setia City Mall will also include over 200 local and international stores, a number of large format retailers and a public park. It will also offer efficient access to over 2,500 car parks and will be easily connected to nearby roads, towns and major highways.

Setia City Mall is set to dramatically enhance the area’s shopping and leisure offer and will provide broad appeal to draw customers from across Malaysia, with a focus on the wider Klang Valley.

The new mall will be designed, marketed and managed by the joint venture entity, combining the best of Malaysian and international retail development skills and experience to create a high quality, successful retail environment. 

The mall will open in mid 2012.
