Top 7 Gym Chains To Stay Fit On The Go in Malaysia

There’s just something about a gym chain, or a ‘branded’ gym that has multiple locations. Life is moving faster than ever before, & it’s easier to commit to one when there’s a gym near you all the time- regardless if you’re at work, home, or elsewhere!

Gyms just make working out easier, especially when you’re on the go. Working out at home isn’t always conducive, and after two years of being inside, it just doesn’t cut it anymore. If you’re looking to up the ante and get back to the grind, here are our top seven picks for gym chains across PJ & KL!

(Ps, most of these gyms are open for all, but click here for our women-friendly gym recommendations!
