1. WHAT IS CELEBRITY FITNESS?
Celebrity Fitness is the fastest growing health, fitness and wellness company in South East Asia with over 100,000 members and over 30 clubs located through out Indonesia and Malaysia. Celebrity Fitness pioneered the concept of a fitness center with an entertainment ambiance. Many of Celebrity Fitness club members join not only to exercise; also to make friends, join classes, relax and chill out in vibrant club lounges and salons. Celebrity Fitness clubs are generally located within shopping malls so that members, after working out, can conveniently shop, dine, pick up their groceries, or go to the cinema. This helps Celebrity Fitness club members to combine a healthy workout with their busy daily routine, which in turn means that they tend to remain members longer and therefore see tangible wellness benefits from their gym membership. Celebrity Fitness has received many awards and commendations, winning the prestigious Top Brand (best fitness brand category) in 2009, 2010 and 2011; Men’s Health Magazine Best Overall Gym Award 2011.

On joining Celebrity Fitness you will be asked to pay a onetime joining fee, plus as a deposit the first and last month’s payment in advance (equivalent to two months dues). Please remember that although you sign up for a six or twelve month initial membership period, your monthly deductions from your account will continue to be made each month until you advise Celebrity Fitness in writing that you wish to terminate your contract. Please also note that monthly membership rates may from time to time increase, due to factors like taxation changes, that are beyond our control.
