Samsung motivates Malaysians to embrace healthier lifestyle via Gear Fit Gym Challenge

Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA, 25 June 2014 – Fitness aficionados and avid gym goers who want to win themselves a brand new Samsung Gear Fit will be delighted to know that it is as easy as hopping onto the treadmill to complete a five-kilometre run. Known as the Gear Fit Gym Challenge, it will run for 10 consecutive weeks starting 16 June at Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First, and comes to a completion on 27 August.

"It is worrying that Malaysia was recently rated as Asia's most obese country. Through this challenge, and a few other health and wellness initiatives that Samsung will drive, we hope to empower Malaysians to start their fitness regime now," said Ng Long Shyang, Vice President of Mobile Division, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

To participate, Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First members need to put on the Gear Fit to monitor their heart rate, step onto the treadmill, and hit the five-kilometre goal within 30 minutes. A leaderboard will be set up at every Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First outlet to track the performance of each challenger, in which the person who completed the challenge in the shortest duration within the Gear Fit Gym Challenge duration will win a Gear Fit. There is no limit to the number of times a challenger can participate, so those who have completed the challenge but want to up his previous record can do so.
