Prior to the launch of our first Fitness Time center, we carried out extensive research to understand the needs, requirements and expectations of the market. Every single detail of Fitness Time was carefully thought out and designed to provide the best sports and fitness environment for our members, from our brand's visual identity, the interior and exterior designs of our fitness centers, the details of the colors, the atmosphere of each individual facility, the construction materials, and even the temperature of the center itself. No stone was left un-turned.

This detailed evaluation has since been done before the opening of every new center and it will continue well into the future as we grow our network of operations. We are steadfast in our commitment that each and every one of our centers offers the same experience for our valued members.
