There’s more to exercising than going to gyms in Singapore

If going to the gym—an actual one, not a Pokemon Go gym—was never your thing, you’ll know that Singapore is chock-full of places for alternative ways to stay healthy. So if you’re looking for new options in Singapore to get your exercise on, here are a few to consider.

Equilibre Pilates Studio

Just opened at Rochester Mall, Equilibre Pilates Studio is a soothing, minimalist, sun-drenched space lead by former Taiwanese ballerina Susan Su-Lengowski, offering Pilates and barre classes as well as gyrotonic sessions. The focus is on small classes. There are individual sessions, with just yourself or a couple friends, but even group classes are capped at six participants. Prices start at $50 for a one-time barre class, though packages are available.

Pure Yoga

Launched in late July, the new Pure Yoga space at Asia Square—a hop and a skip from Downtown MRT station and in the same building as Pure Fitness—occupies almost 11,000 sq ft, with four main practice rooms, a shop, beige-wood-and-whitewashed-brick decor, all their fancy changing room amenities and a new focus on the 5 Pillars class classification system (Healing, Grounding, Dynamic, Hot and Specialized).

GuavaLabs by GuavaPass

Think of it as an offline form of the app, where GuavaPass and its exclusive partners and influencers will hold daily classes like yoga, pilates, barre, CrossFit and more at its Mandarin Gallery home, as well as other fitness and lifestyle events, which will be refreshed each week and made available for online booking for both members and the general public. This 2,000 sq ft hybrid space will also have a juice bar and retail area, making it a one-stop health and wellness destination in the heart of Orchard Road. You’ll have to purchase GuavaCredits that will then be used for booking upcoming classes and events. Keep up to date with their latest classes and events on their Facebook group page and website.

The Yard

Singapore’s largest gyming arena, The Yard, has opened in Jurong East, and we have the gymnastics experts behind Gym With Me to thank for it. The 20,000 sq ft facility provides more than enough space for you to take part in a variety of fitness activities. The Yard also offers open gymnastics and parkour sessions during the weekdays, eight-week trampolining classes, and personal fitness conditioning sessions. From Olympic-sized trampolinest to gymnastics bars and vaulting tables, and an oversized spring deck, you pretty much have everything you need to fulfill your recreational or competitive acrobatic needs.

BOUNCE Singapore

Well, it isn’t exactly a place to exercise per se but it still is an option (and a fun one at that) since they have 45-minute group trampolining classes that are said to work out your core. This new indoor adventure arena from Melbourne opened at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard last June. The 24,000 sq ft space is modelled after an urban playground, with 28 interconnected trampolines. Activities revolve around trampolining—for example, you can play a game of basketball, “run” down a wall, play dodgeball, complete an obstacle course or practice your skills on Olympic-grade performance trampolines. A 60-minute session costs $24 per person.
