Readers’ Choice Award 2011: Living

Best Gym: True Fitness
We like the fact that they’ve got fitness facilities for every personality (varying types of gym equipment, a wealth of expertise, all types of dance classes and even separate cardio areas for the ladies) and aren’t ridiculously priced. So, it would seem, do you. #07-001 Suntec City Mall, 3 Temasek Blvd., 6820-9000 and other locations,
Best Yoga Studio: True Yoga
Besides an extensive variety of classes ranging from Yogalates to Bollywood and fusion dance, True Yoga also boasts the most flexible opening hours in Singapore, with studios open daily from 7am to 11pm—perfect for those with erratic working hours. 4/F Pacific Plaza, 9 Scotts Rd., 6733-9555,
Best Spa: Spa Botanica
If you don’t have time for a real vacation, this opulent and well-equipped tropical spa getaway on Sentosa island isn’t a bad substitute. A day spent at the outdoor treatment pavilions equipped with their own gardens or in the Royal Spa Botanica Suite is a luxury like no other. 2 Bukit Manis Rd., 6371-1318,
Fitness Trend to Beat: Hot Yoga
It was everywhere this year and despite the fact that it can leave you feeling nauseous and that the room smells like intestines by the time you’re done, its popularity shows no signs of letting up.
Best Fragrance: Calvin Klein Beauty
Fit for drama queens, this one’s gentle on the skin yet extravagantly floral—we wouldn’t have it any other way.
