Since Singapore’s circuit breaker period last year, fitness studio Barre Lab has been regularly teaching short and simple online classes via Instagram’s IGTV.

Just scroll their feed for helpful tutorials like Common Ballet Terms and Barre 101.
No one does HIIT like the famed Barry’s Bootcamp, and if you’d like to work up a sweat in your own home, then check out plenty of workout videos on the Barry’s Singapore Instagram page. Follow along intense, signature classes like Arms & Abs, or Full Body which focuses on upper or lower body. You can even stream these classes back-to-back for a full one-hour workout that will have you feelin’ the burn.
Working out alone can be uninspiring, and frankly, boring. So invite a friend over for some boxing-influenced HIIT fun by attempting Crubox Singapore’s Cru At Home IGTV series. Just be prepared to plank, jump squat and lunge your butt off.
Besides offering virtual pilates classes, Off Duty Pilates is also bringing locals easy access to its workout regimen with IGTV series like Stretch for Flexibility and Classic Pilates Abs. Get a taste of what the studio has to offer before signing up for more exclusive classes here.
