Afternoons are now spent with TV, video games, and the internet. Parents are busier than ever and families eat fewer home-cooked meals. But the good news is that by making just a few lifestyle changes, we can help the younger generation lead healthier lives and thats why Fitness Zone is here in Brunei to encourage and motivate everyone in any possible way especially through the connection of doing sports activities.”
