Kenny Sia is the owner and founder of Level Up Fitness, Kuching’s largest fitness chain.
So in 2009, he established the first Level Up Fitness outlet in Wisma Everrise, Jln Petanak.
Level Up Fitness became the pioneer of premium large-scale full-service fitness facilities in Kuching. It offers top-notch equipment, generous relaxation facilities and unlimited group exercise classes led by exciting instructors. Almost immediately, the fitness scene in Sarawak blossomed under the leadership and vision of Kenny.
In 2011, Level Up Fitness spearheaded into the realm of corporate wellness with the establishment of Sarawak Energy Berhad’s private corporate gym at the new Headquarters at The Isthmus. The fact that Sarawak Energy remains a client even until today is a testament to Kenny’s dedication.
The following year, Kenny established a low-cost subsidiary named LUF24HR at Arena Sukan, Simpang Tiga – with monthly fees as low as RM50/mth. The public’s response to Malaysia’s first 24-hour low-cost gym was overwhelming. LUF24HR turned a profit immediately and attracted attention both inside and out of Kuching. It became clear to Kenny that there’s demand in both the premium-end and budget-end of the fitness industry. He was determined to excel in both.
Today, Level Up Fitness boasts 10 outlets across Malaysia, including 6 in Kuching and 1 each in Sabah, Selangor, Terengganu and Johor. In doing so, Level Up Fitness earns the accolade as the first and only Sarawakian fitness chain to be exported to Peninsular Malaysia.
