State of the art gym opens its doors at Mal­abe

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - EVENTS -

Sri Lanka’s well­ness scale got a new boost with the in­au­gu­ra­tion of a 50,000 square feet Body Doc fit­ness club in Mal­abe and is the largest and most tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced fit­ness cen­ter in the coun­try, a press re­lease said.

Lo­cated less than a kilo­me­tre away from the heart of Mal­abe town this lux­u­ri­ous well­ness cen­ter was de­signed by award- win­ning ar­chi­tect Palinda Kan­nan­gara.

Body Doc is the first ever med­i­cally ori­ented gym in Sri Lanka. Its well­ness as­pect is a fully fledged med­i­cal clinic with physi­cians, di­eti­cians, sports medicine and other spe­cial­ist con­sul­tants to en­sure that they of­fer its mem­bers the best ser­vices. With a highly qual­i­fied & pro­fes­sional team of fit­ness in­struc­tors, Body Doc of­fers the sup­port re­quired to em­power and in­te­grate healthy rou­tines into its mem­ber’s day-to-day life.

Body Doc wel­comes ev­ery­one, from peo­ple want­ing to lose weight, to body­builders, power lifters, weight lifters and ath­letes, while cater­ing to all age groups and to any­one with a spe­cific gym in­ter­est. The fit­ness facet of­fers ev­ery­thing from car­dio, weight lift­ing, cross­fit train­ing, yoga, zumba, spin­ning classes, steam & sauna, ther­mal baths & jacuzzis, bad­minton, ta­ble ten­nis, a pool par­lor and much more.

Body Doc founder and chair­per­son Dr Thanuki Idan­godage is the brain­child be­hind this con­cept. Ed­u­cated at the Colombo In­ter­na­tional School and hav­ing stud­ied medicine in the United States, she was de­ter­mined to open a fa­cil­ity in Sri Lanka as she wit­nessed first­hand the lev­els of pa­tients suf­fer­ing from obe­sity, hy­per­ten­sion, di­a­betes, and other non com­mu­ni­ca­ble and in­cur­able dis­eases that are bet­ter pre­vented with ex­er­cise and a healthy life­style than try­ing to con­trol once af­flicted with.

She says fa­cil­i­ties she saw and ex­pe­ri­enced in other parts of the world in­spired her to open the best state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity for the ben­e­fit of Sri Lankans.

“Body Doc is not only about the fa­cil­i­ties, but also it pro­vides nu­tri­tional and med­i­cal con­sul­ta­tion for peo­ple to stay and en­joy a healthy liv­ing. Our fa­cil­ity has the most high-end equip­ment, wel­com­ing staff, a va­ri­ety of classes and ex­cel­lent fit­ness in­struc­tors. With per­sonal train­ers, the work­out rou­tines can also be cus­tomised to in­di­vid­ual needs, which also make the fa­cil­ity more at­trac­tive.”
