This is just the beginning


Evolution Wellness was established in 2017 by Navis Capital Partners and Oaktree Capital Management by bringing together two leading fitness brands in Southeast Asia – Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First – to form one of the largest, wholly-owned fitness club networks in the fast-growing Asian region.

Today, Evolution Wellness’s diversified portfolio includes three leading fitness brands – Celebrity Fitness, CHi Fitness, and Fitness First – and award-winning eco-wellness brand Fivelements.

Helmed  by the most experienced management team in the industry, Evolution Wellness seeks to expand its presence and diversify its portfolio by developing a comprehensive wellness ecosystem for its customers.

Robust strategic governance will see us build on the strong track record of our brands as we seek to add further brands and formats to the portfolio.


“Over the years, both Celebrity Fitness and Fitness First have established themselves as pioneering and trusted names in the health and fitness sector, leading in their markets and delivering excellence and innovation for their members. Coming together under the Evolution Wellness umbrella will allow us to operate with increased scale, reach and efficiency, to enhance our members’ experience through the continued expansion of our club networks, faster innovation and product evolution, as well as improved service standards. We’re committed to building on the success of both brands; I am confident we will further energise the Asian fitness market with the collective expertise and experience we now have as one united team.”

“We’re really excited to bring on board Fivelements as a portfolio company. Fivelements ranks on the world stage in delivering comprehensive wellness and lifestyle transformation programmes, along with plant-based cuisine, where visitors can experience the benefits of their own wellness journey and also take away with them insightful knowledge to help them on the path to wellness. The capability and talent at Fivelements provides us with an exciting opportunity to influence and enhance the value proposition for our existing customer base by delivering an increased, complementary range of products and services.”
