To further broaden the opportunities for Malaysians to learn from and train with the industry’s best, FITM leverages its alliances with similar organizations throughout Asia to bring much sought-after international fitness presenters to Malaysia.


Mohd Hazli bin Ali Zapar, the Managing Director and founder of Ignite Education & Training Sdn Bhd, established FITM Borneo in a commitment to create and support the development of effective, inspiring fitness professionals who resonate with lifelong health and wellbeing.

Officially launched by YB Jannie Lasimbang, ADUN N19 Kapayan on 20 May 2019 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, it is the first and only private fitness accreditation centre in Borneo.
