No more stuffy rooms where the smell of feet and socks mixed with stale sweat on old stained carpets assail the senses, causing one to hesitate, resist and wonder “do I really want a workout under these conditions?”
Now Ipohites can work out in a sleek and contemporary boutique style fitness club, nestled cozily in the heart of Ipoh city. Located within the Greentown Business District, Sculptfitness enjoys great accessibility whilst still maintaining an element of privacy. Brainchild of owner and group class instructor herself, Suraya Elland Yusoff, the Club in Lebuh Ceylon is a brand new purpose built building, all tastefully outfitted and surrounded by a glassed, green outlook. Three spacious group class studios including Cardio/TRX studio, Spin Theatre and a Yoga Sanctuary occupy the upper floor while the gym floor below comes fully equipped with brand new quality equipment and free weights and is sure to satisfy even the hard to please hardcore gym junkie. Throw in a Jacuzzi, Steam Room, mini outdoor kickbox areas, as well as the numerous cozy relaxation areas that are available and you have a pretty comprehensive set up.
The concept behind Sculptfitness is to go one step further than just being a regular gym by providing multiple facilities under the one roof. With customer service being a priority, Sculpt also provides members with an in-house hairdresser and cafe. Fashion fanatics will love the ‘Lorna Jane’ sportswear boutique, Ipoh’s very first. For those more into natural well-being, aches and pains can be addressed by their Structural Integration Practitioner, or their Acupuncturist who is also a fully accredited TCM doctor who can prescribe herbs.
Group class enthusiasts will be in their element with the exciting range of classes offered including TRX, ZUMBA, JAZZERCISE, Tone Zone, Yoga, Pilates, Step and more. In fact, the most comprehensive range of group classes available in Perak.
All classes are conducted by trained and dedicated instructors. Sculptfitness is also the base for Ipoh’s one and only franchised Jazzercise outlet. Pure Jazzercise packages are available here. For those less inclined towards classes, personal trainers are on hand to tailor specific programmes to meet individual needs and motivate you to reach your target. With the 12 session package and undivided scrutiny of your trainer, you are bound to see results! All in all, a positive new landmark for Ipoh. If you are looking for a great workout with some added perks in a stylish, plush environment, this is the place.
Speaking to Suraya, the doyenne of the fitness scene in Perak, and founder of Sulptfitness, who conceived and designed the layout and all the interiors of the facility, one can sense the palpable passion in her being as her eyes light up, “It has given me immense pleasure to see Sculptfitness grow into a reality whilst doing something I’m really passionate about. Being able to change people’s lives for the better is very rewarding, and all the more so in this fast paced world, where healthy lifestyles are gaining prominence. The provision of wellness-based therapies within our centre provides a welcome alternative for the discerning individual. Ultimately my hope is for Sculptfitness to become a place where people can chill, build friendships, de-stress, improve confidence and reach unimaginable goals with their bodies”.
Sculptfitness offers a range of membership options to suit every lifestyle and fitness aspiration. Coming from a philosophy that “one size fits all” is wrong when it comes to fitness clubs, their packages are designed to match the distinct fitness goals and lifestyles of their members.
As well as individual month options, quarterly, 6-month and annual saver packages are also available. For those just passing through or unable to commit, non-member options are available in the form of a day pass, a weekly pass, a weekend pass, or a single month pass.
For all you couch potatoes out there, get up, get in to Sculptfitness and sign up. As their motto proclaims: Believe and Achieve, your body will thank you. And so will your doctor.
