The Lagos launch of Bodyline Fitness and Gym on Saturday October 26 attracted some of the most influential men and women in the city, with many guests commending the owners for giving Lagos a truly world class wellness centre.
The Ikoyi-based health lifestyle and fitness centre has been described by pundits as one of the best and biggest in West Africa, with facilities including a gymnasium, an indoor swimming pool, aerobics studio, spinning room, spa services, yoga and pilates room among others.
Superstar Darey Art Alade hosted the exclusive launch event while guests present included Segun Awolowo, Bassey Albert, Commissioner for Finance Akwa Ibom State Toni Kan, Ireti Doyle, Abisoye Fagade, Howie T, Zaina, His Royal Highness Saw Owa the Owa Lobbo of Obbo-Ayegunle, and many others.
Speaking at the event, Ladi Okunneye, Managing Director 03B Networks Ltd. noted the top-notch facilities available at the center, confirming ‘there’s no where like this currently in Lagos.’
During the official opening, the Managing Director, Bodyline Fitness & Gym, Mr. Bankole Opashi reiterated the importance of the Lagos outlet to the Bodyline brand. “Launching in Lagos was very important for us as we knew that Lagosians needed these services especially given the hectic nature of the city.” He added that keeping fit no longer has to be boring because adding fun to the concept of healthy living is what has sustained the brand for the past seven years in Abuja.”
Mr. Opashi also took guests round the world-class stylish facilities for a first hand experience of the available services whilst guests were treated to their choice of free services ranging from deep tissue massages available at the spa to free hair, manicure and pedicure services at the beauty salon.
Bodyline Fitness & Gym began operations in Abuja on October 27, 2006 though the Lagos rollout will see the brand launch in major cities across Nigeria.
