Fire in the Sky – A One of a Kind Workout Experience
Taking its inspiration from the element Fire, Fire in the Sky is a one day fitness event, almost like a “fitness festival”, organised by Mah Sing and Spotify, where participants (or Fire-starters) take part in group workout sessions during the day from 2.00pm to 10.00pm.

The one hour classes were conducted by Firestation.fit (a luxury boutique fitness studio with outlets in Jalan Batai and Mont Kiara) and were divided into four types; Fire Yoga, Fire Zumba, Fire Hazard and Fire Works*. Each type of class combines high intensity workout with rocking music powered by Spotify. There were a total of 40 classes, inclusive of 8 additional classes that were opened up later on for Fire Yoga 2 and Fire Works 2 due to popular demand, which ran throughout the day. Every class was filled with enthusiastic Fire-starters enjoying their workouts.
As a reward for completing their workouts, Fire-starters were treated to a highly charged pool party on Level 23 of M City’s Altitude Club filled with fun games and exhilarating music.
