Solitude of Strength

The buzz: This underground gym caters to powerlifters, Olympic weightlifters and crossfitters.

What it offers: The gym is essentially a warehouse—don’t expect fancy lights or air-conditioning. With Olympic bars and weight plates littering the space, it’s every serious weightlifter’s dream. To switch-up your training routine, try out the battle ropes, prowlers and giant tyres. According to owner Lewis Chua, Solitude of Strength is a community of “strength enthusiasts”, where patrons can exchange training tips.

How much: Entry passes are $10 a pop, so it’s more economical to sign up for a monthly pass at $100. Senior national athletes get to train for half the price.
