It boasts a restaurant offering diet, organic food, protein shakes and much more. And they also have a Healthy Meal at Door Step service. It doesn’t end here though.

This place has so many more other facilities, things that you ideally wouldn’t find in a regular gym – probably why they associate themselves as a club. There is a Day Care facility indoors for new moms, a physiotherapist and a female massage therapist to name a few.
