The inauguration was done by ace cricketer Lakshmi Ratan Shukla and actress Nusrat Jahan in the presence of other models and celebrities on Friday.
The new 3300 sqft Gym - Terminator 9 offers a variety of convenient health and fitness options for the local community and the ever-so-busy people from the corporate world alike. Equipped with state-of-the-art strength equipment like stationary bikes, treadmills, and elliptical trainers for aerobic workouts as well as a full weight machine and dumbbells for strength conditioning, cardio machines outfitted with iPod docking stations, the gym features spacious, full-service locker rooms, a juice bar, sauna, nutrition counseling and personal training, among other amenities.
The fitness center also has an area for Yoga where members can opt for a holistic and spiritual approach to total mind and body fitness and Kickboxing is an option for the more athletic members with a spark for fast paced, challenging and empowering work-out with the help of martial arts.
“We are excited to open Terminator 9 in our community,” said Mr Mainak Saha, the Director of NIAS, “It's the ideal one-stop shop for today's modern men and women who are multi-tasking careers, families and homes. Terminator 9 offers local residents and corporates an opportunity to work out with high-quality equipment at an affordable price, in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
“With the location now open, we look forward to helping our members achieve their health and fitness goals,” added Mr Saha. “The gym members can anticipate the most up-to-date, advanced fitness facility that caters to their needs, while providing a social environment where everyone feels comfortable. We encourage everyone to stop by and check out our new facility to take advantage of our membership offerings.”
Tollywood actress Nusrat Jahan, who herself has an envious body was very thrilled to learn that the Gym even has a Sauna / Steam bath. She was even seen checking-out the latest fitness equipments at Terminator 9. “Yoga is certainly the ‘in-thing’ as it relaxes your mind and body. It’s the best stress-buster and a complete fitness workout” said Nusrat.
The ever competetive work environment hardly gives the time to people to think of a workout. Terminator 9, situated in the heart of Salt Lake sure provides a solution to busy people who always wanted to go for a fitness programme, but never had the opportunity before. Now they will have a chance to get enrolled to a fitness programme even in the middle of their working hours. Terminator 9 stays open even at the time when most of the fitness centers close for lunch !
Commenting on the occasion, Lakshmi Ratan Shukla, the Cricketer who helped team KKR through to a fabulous win this IPL Season, said “It is indeed a project well thought of. Fitness is not only essential for us players but should also be an integral part of every individual’s life. It certainly will encourage the saying – A healthy mind in a healthy body!”
