PETALING JAYA: It’s still a month to the sixth instalment of Malaysia’s biggest health fair and exhibitors are already busy preparing to showcase their best offerings.
FitForLife KL 2017 will see 54 exhibitors and 140 booths highlighting the latest healthy lifestyle tips including nutrition, fitness and dietary trends.
In addition to stage activities and health talks, this year will also see the inclusion of a synthetic ice-skating rink and virtual walk.
Exhibitors attended a special briefing-cum-balloting session to choose their desired spots at Menara Star here on Monday.
“We had good response last year so we’re back again for the second time. This year, people can expect better deals for the Power Plate, which uses the principles of vibration therapy to strengthen muscles.
“Among others, we’re having a Healthy Moms post-natal package for new mothers to shape up quicker,” said Vikram C. Mogan, head of marketing at Universal Fitness & Leisure Sdn Bhd, one of the leading local fitness and outdoor sports outfits.
Besides promoting its products, the 30-year-old company will conduct educational sessions at the fair.
“Sports fans can also get a chance to meet the Terengganu Pro-Asis Cycling Team, which will make an appearance at our booth,” added Vikram.
Joining him at the balloting event was first-time exhibitor Jinie Kamal, chief executive officer and co-founder of Impulse Studio.
“There are so many overweight and sedentary people out there and we want to show them that all they need is twice a week of Impulse Training to increase muscular strength.
“Every session only takes 20 minutes, which is easy to commit to. The more muscles you build, the higher your metabolic rate so your body will naturally burn more calories on its own,” she said.
Impulse Training uses electrical impulses to stimulate voluntary muscular contraction, and method that is applied in the fields of physiotherapy, pro-athletic sports, sports rehabilitation and medicine.
