Fit For 2 was established in 2004 by Debbra Lee. Being a mother herself, Debbra realised a need for a place where Pregnant Ladies and New Parents could find not only suitable exercise classes but also healthy food options for themselves and their kids. Fit For 2 first opened its doors on the first floor of a row of shop houses in Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar. Starting with just a handful of classes taught by herself and baking most of the cakes herself, Fit For 2 has grown into what you see today! A bigger space, more classes and a fairly extensive menu, all in a more convenient location of a shopping mall where parking is aplenty and lifts are available!
Classes from Yoga to Fitball
Classes: A range of classes from Fitball to Pilates and Yoga cater to not just pregnant ladies but also new parents. Select classes allow new parents to bond with their new born as it is so much fun to exercise with your babies and kids! All our instructors are qualified and have much experience; and most are parents themselves so understand the special nature of Fit For 2.
Cafe: The café provides healthy food for parents with home baked breads, salads and soups. And for the kids, a carefully considered menu. All food served are relatively healthy being made fresh in our kitchens. Babies are encouraged to B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Breast), however if you need some solid food, we do offer the Baby Ambrosia range.There is also a private baby feeding area as well as a baby changing table with nappies sponsored by Huggies. And to keep the little ones entertained, we have a small kids area where kids can play while mums and dads have a coffee!

Nurturing a community feel is very much on the agenda at Fit For 2. We also host a weekly gathering called Bumps, Mums and Muffins where we get guest speakers as well as have our chats. Topics range from more serious issues such post natal depression to the latest strollers! The transition into motherhood is a very special time and is often easier when shared with other parents going through the same experience, hence we hope that at Fit For 2 you can make friends and are able to enjoy the first steps in becoming a parent.
