Yet another one going

News broke out that the latest Fitness First branch to be closed down is Fitness First Menara MBF along Jln Sultan Ismail, in the light of the ever aggressive expansion of CHI Fitness, Celebrity Fitness and newcomer Anytime Fitness..

One of the older FF branch, it will shut its doors for good end of next month.. This came after FF Menara Summit in Subang Jaya closed on 30 April.. With this closure, it will bring FF down to just
12 branches..

I don't usually go to FF MBF because of a few reasons..

  • old (but to be fair, more than half the machines are new, and it is among the first to have personal training floor space)
  • expensive parking (hourly rates, evenings and weekends RM5/entry)
  • horrible traffic (you can be stuck on Jln Sultan Ismail itself for at least an hour in the evening rush hour)
No doubt it's closer to Pavilion via the airconditioned elevated pedestrian skybridge, it's too close to Avenue K branch, which has been recently refurbished and upgraded to Platinum.. 

LESMILLS has been doing many a quarterly metro workshop in FF MBF and this Quarter 2 Metro Workshop which will be held end of May will be the last workshop this branch will see.. 

And of course, this FF is also reputedly one of the more cruisy branch.. ^_^
