“We’re truly excited to be part of the La Promenade Fitness Weekend. We’re organising two competitions: one for the public, another an ‘invitational’ for professionals across Malaysia. Even at this early stage, response has been great!” Sweat Factory’s Richard Yu said.
“There are 24 confirmed teams, six from Kuching, four Sabah, five KL, three Miri, and two teams each from Penang and Bintulu,” added instructor Chai Kian Yew.
La Promenade Mall and the adjoining HSL Tower are Green Building Index certified. They are the first privately built facilities in Sarawak to be rated green, ensuring 25% better energy efficiency.
In 2018, the 200acre township won the prestigious Malaysia Landscape Architecture Award, during the World Landscape Architecture Month in Kuala Lumpur. Judges called La Promenade “a township within a park”.
The community has 1,800 Norfolk Pine Trees, over 25,000 tea leaf shrubs, Tecomas (better known as tropical Sakura trees), Hopeas and giant Bonsais.
