Over the past 5 years, Kuala Lumpur has quickly become a hub of culture and innovation but still keeping its’ fast-pace and intensity that it’s known so well for. But, what a lot of people don’t know is that the fitness scene in this city has exploded, giving hundreds of workout styles to chose from. Studios and class styles that have only been seen in places like New York, L.A. and Sydney have been popping up all over the capital city. And the best part of all of this is…

6. District 13
There are some gyms you walk into that are overflowing with machines, equipment and strange looking contraptions that would break a sweat just figuring out how to work it.
