Now the dust has settled and 2016 is well and truly underway, it’s about time to do something about your health and fitness New Year’s resolutions. Here are our top three gyms in Singapore to help you on your way…
Virgin Active’s world class fitness club includes spas, steam rooms, experience showers and large spacious workout areas and state-of-the-art equipment.
Fitness enthusiasts can also add a different dimension to their workout with the latest Technogym® Artis® range, Woodway Curve Treadmills, Water Rowers, Wattbike, InBody Tracker and more. To complement the cutting-edge equipment there are also a wide array of group exercise classes encompassing everything from strength to dance and from MMA to cardio.
Some of Virgin Active’s most unique and popular group exercise classes – all under 60 minutes – include Zuu, Fire Trainer and Anti-Gravity yoga. Zuu uses animal exercises and movements to improve mobility and strength through full ranges of movement. You will experience greater agility in daily functional movements such as walking down stairs and bending down to pick things up. Fire Training is a proprietary training system which incorporates the use of FiRE Trainer (a portable fitness suspension training tool) to perform strength and fitness based exercise moves. Anti-Gravity Yoga (AGY) is a unique fusion technique, revolutionary in relieving compressed joints and aligning the body from head to toe.

Styling themselves as ‘the most efficient gym in the world’, Ritual is an upscale boutique gym that specialises in getting you in and out in just 30 minutes.
Small group classes featuring 20 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training run every half hour and everything you need is provided (you don’t even need shoes as barefoot training is encouraged), so all you need to do is to find a little time in your busy day and show up. With only ten people training at any one time under the supervision of two coaches, you get plenty of personal attention, and the emphasis here is on form rather than reps.
The locker rooms are equipped with private cubicles with spa-grade showers and a wide variety of toiletries are provided free of charge. On your way out you should definitely grab a tasty, freshly-made meal-replacement shake or superfood snack from the onsite Fuel Bar.
