Singapore is known for being the financial and technology hub in Asia. However, Singapore is also rapidly becoming a center of health and wellness. Tons of Singaporeans have committed to spend their calories consciously, have subscribed to meal plan programs, or downloaded mobile applications to track their nutrition and physical activity. Gyms and fitness centers are still the primary places Singaporeans go to get fit and stay healthy. However, with the countless options for exercise, it can be difficult to decipher which gyms in Singapore are right for you. Here is a list of five types of gyms to get you started on your journey to health.
Yoga is the ideal workout if you’re looking to build strength, balance, and overall mental health. Yoga uses tough-to-hold poses to build muscle tone and endurance as well as low impact exercises to allow for meditation and breathing exercises. Head to true Yoga or Yoga Movement to try out a class and hold your first pose.
HIIT or high-intensity interval training workouts alternates between intense exercises with low impact moves for quick and effective workouts to burn fat and build muscle. If you have only a short amount of time to workout and want to maximize results, HIIT workouts only last an average of 30 minutes. Gyms like F45 and Ritual Gym are the places to go for a good HIIT workout.
Spinning or cycling is an exercise growing in popularity. Spinning is ideal if you’re looking for an effective cardio workout that not only burns calories and fat but builds muscle tone. Spinning gyms like CruCycle and 7Cycle have opened numerous branches all over Singapore.
Gyms like CrossFit Hub and CrossFit Mobilus are watering holes for the Singaporean CrossFit community. With a focus on building endurance, agility, and strength, CrossFit employs unconventional exercises and equipment (for example, a car tire).
