As most of you know my love for KFIT will never fade, at least for the coming years. One of which is because I was of the many who spent hundreds every month for a single gym membership for that one location and that one damn workout. It was my most ridiculous and pointless money spent by far. Also, no offence, but gym salespeople are very good examples of con jobs.
Below are the 10 things you need to know about KFIT and tell me again if you are not sold by the overall idea.
No1 / KFIT IS A ONE PASS ACCESS TO CLASSES, GYMS AND FACILITIES ACROSS 10 COUNTRIES
Kfit gets you to explore wider options for your fitness routine. If you are the type that likes to discover different fitness options and not a mundane gym workout routine, Kfit may be the best solution for you. With just ONE membership you get to enjoy facilities/classes/gyms across 10 countries, namely Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Perth, Manila, Seoul, Taipei and Hong Kong. Hence, it is a plus point for those who travel a lot for work.
No2 / KFIT COMES IN AN APP
Kfit comes in a super mobile friendly app where you get to reserve your activities instantly, literally with just a click of a button. It is just much better than using a browser because browsers just.... suck. With that, it brings me to my 3rd point.
No3 / KFIT ALLOWS YOU TO RESERVE AND CANCEL RESERVATIONS AN HOUR BEFORE IT BEGINS
With the app, KFIT recently launched KFIT Now (which is just a term to indicate that classes can now be canceled an hour before the classes begin). Before the launch of KFIT Now, I had to cancel my reservation a day before (12am, to be precise) so I will not be charged with a penalty fee.
No4 / YES, IF YOU DO NOT SHOW UP, YOU WILL BE CHARGED A PENALTY FEE OF RM20
It is a culture they are trying to bring up; if you do not show up, cancel your reservation at least an hour before the class begins. It is also a way to tell the partners (a.k.a the gyms/classes) that you will not be showing up. However, the RM20 penalty fee is not really a bad thing. It kinda works like a motivation for me to work out. Sometimes, I had to choose between drinks with my friends or working out. I HAD to choose working out since I'll be charged RM20 if I don't show up anyway.
No5 / THE PARTNERS WILL KNOW IF YOU DO NOT SHOW UP
"How would the partners know if i don't show up?" is a question I get asked a lot when I explain about the membership. Well, it is as simple as.... they take your attendance? Duh. You will need to fill up some forms and tell them you are from KFIT. They will then tick you off the list and you will not be charged with a penalty fee.
No6 / DIFFERENT PARTNERS HAVE DIFFERENT AMOUNT OF ACCESS PER MONTH
There are some KFIT partners that I know of are pretty expensive - especially some of the Hot Yoga/Pilates classes can go up to about RM60 per class. Hence, it is only normal for KFIT to limit the access of their members to each class/gym access. For instance, you can only visit True Fitness twice a month but there are still other great options! Example, Chi Fitness, Anytime Fitness, Fitworx.
No7 / KFIT ONLY ACCEPTS CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS
KFIT memberships work in a way that they auto-deduct from your card on a monthly basis (on the date you started your membership). Hence, you do not have to remind yourself to do the payment, it does it for you. Just make sure you are aware of the date you start your membership with KFIT.
No8 / CONTACT THEM 7 DAYS BEFORE THE PAYMENT DAY TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP
Cancelling your membership is super convenient. All you need to do is, email to ASK@KFIT.COM and the lovely people at the headquarters will make sure that they do not charge you for the following payment.
No9 / KFIT IS PRICED AT RM69 FOR THE 1ST MONTH IF YOU USE THE CODE "FELICIA" UPON REGISTRATION
It will only be RM69 instead of the monthly price, RM99!
No10 / MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A LOOK THROUGH THEIR PARTNERS BEFORE REGISTRATION
I understand that some of you do not drive and that may be a problem. For those of you who prefers to stick to a weekly fitness schedule, and prefers to only stick to that one familiar gym, KFIT might not be something made to suit your lifestyle. This is because KFIT limits the access to different gyms hence you won't be able to visit that ONE gym unlimitedly. So, be sure to read through their list of partners and their schedule at http://www.kfit.com/ to see they suit you in terms of (a) location convenience (b) your field of interest
