After almost 5 years as gym owners, our vision has changed.
When we opened Lah in 2016, our vision was simple: make people strong AF.
As we evolved, our vision was adopted by our awesome team, and has become more complex. We wanted to introduce functional fitness to our greater community. We wanted to be countercultural. We wanted to stomp out the social media myths around fat loss, performance and “health”.
So over the years we built a supportive and hardworking community. We planted seeds and cut back the weeds and grew in a hundred directions. In early 2020 we sat down, individually, and later with our team, to map out what it was we were continuing to create and WHY. We had cultivated a gym and community we were proud of, but we needed to put that in words too. There came the evolution of our new mission and vision.
To fundamentally enhance the health and overall wellness of our members and those they love.
Constantly striving for coaching excellence by focusing on member results while nurturing a community that we and our members take pride in being a part of.
When we opened Lah, we chose to do things our way. We didn’t want to bring every single person in Bangsar through Lah for a short period of time. We didn't want to be social media influencers. We wanted to make a difference in the lives and wellbeing of our members and their families. We wanted to educate. We wanted our members to stay around so long they became family. We wanted to have to make people leave at the end of class instead of them wanting to leave. We wanted to make people love working out.
We recognized that we could change the community by enlarging the lives of our members. They (you), in turn, can ask their friends to go for a walk, or share their healthy meals for lunch. We can be industry leaders in the health and fitness industry of Malaysia..
Why “enlarge”? Because our method of fitness is more than life-extending; it’s life-broadening.
If you cut out processed carbs and sugar, and start doing squats, deadlifts and presses, you’ll live longer. But you’ll also live better. You’ll stay independent to an older age. You’ll have strength and mobility and the will to live right up until the end–you’ll practically be your own pallbearer.
You’ll be younger for longer. And while you’re young, you’ll do more things. Our personal favorite goal is “to die young, as late as possible.” and we mean that. This is our number one fitness and wellness goal.
You’ll Spartan Up. You’ll play more sports. You’ll run more road races. You’ll hike that volcano, or go to Everest Base Camp. You’ll get down on the floor with the kids, up on your feet to dance, and over the walls of diabetes and depression. You will go, you will see, and you will conquer. You will live a larger life.
The Lah Vision is to fundamentally enhance the health and overall wellness of our members and those they love.
