Fit And Fun Sunday Morning Event Highlight

Fitness First Indonesia continues to bring new ideas in inspiring the nation to get healthy. On Sunday, 6 October 2019, as the country’s leading fitness brand, we held a mass-workout marathon event called Fit & Fun Sunday Morning aimed at giving Jakartans a new way to refresh after a busy week. 

Stationed at hangout hotspot Plaza Semanggi Mall, the event welcomed both members and non-members to enjoy Fitness First’s group workout experience on an outdoor area. 

“Sunday is a fun day and we want to help everyone unwind and get refreshed in a new way through group workout.  Group event like this gives everyone the opportunity to meet new people, share experiences, and get fit. Be it swinging your arms to a dance song, or hitting up the streets with running buddies, morning workout just feels better if done together.” Head of Marketing of Fitness First Indonesia Feni Soemitra shared.

The first program of the day, Running Club, took off at 6am. With the sun barely arose, lines of energized runners, some young adults and some spry, tightened up their shoelaces and began making way to the finely-polished boulevard of Sudirman Road. They are led by groups of Running Buddies, Fitness First’s very own running experts whose main goal is to help improve everyone’s running ability.


After making the Sudirman Road roundabout, the runners sped back to Semanggi Mall and stepped on the gas to get ready for two high-intensity workout programs, Body Combat and Zumba. Both programs, already popular among Jakarta’s health-conscious citizens, offer fully-integrated cardio routines that are a little different in style but equal in satisfaction.

While the former would showcase a combo of mixed-martial-arts disciplines that demands a more serious approach, the latter dance exercise inspires a more cheerful mood, mixing the best parts of South America’s party dance genres with high-tempo music beats.

It is not only about the fun too. Fitness First’s event like today allows many participants to get an unbeatable taste of good fitness. From having a better muscle coordination, core strength and agility, to feeling more focused and confident, participants are receiving tons of health benefits that come from being fit. 


Apart from group workout, Fitness First also held a quick-fire Fitness Challenge, pitting enthusiastic contestants in fitness-performance duel. The challenge measures contestants’ fitness ability to clock in the largest number of workouts moves in a given time. Winners of course, took home rewards and a few slices of bragging rights to boot.

Soemitra added, “Our menu today, from the group-running adventure, to the dance party, as well as the fitness challenge is built to create awareness on fitness-based healthy lifestyle among Jakartans. Sunday morning does not have to be spent on waking up late, instead start your day by boosting your adrenaline, having a blast and feeling like a champ. Working out in social setting is clearly the better way to refresh your body and mind.”

Besides hosting a mass workout, Fit & Fun Sunday Morning also featured a fundraising activity to support the upcoming breast cancer awareness national event Pink October on 30 October 2019. The activity is part of Fitness First’s initiative to show appreciation for its success, give back and make a difference. All proceeds will be used to provide free breast scans service to the local community.
