i noe that the california charges discounted $72 /hour and $95-70 without discount depending on how many sessions has already been purchased.

SAFRA is $60.

I pay S$45 a session by purchasing 15 at a time; I think usual price is S$60 per session. Gym membership on top of that, of course.

why not try and find someone to train with, it costs u nothing, there are many experienced in fitness training, many have done it all there lives, you can often see them at the gym, or advertise for a training partner.

Unless you are into body building that is, which is a little more specialised, with correct diet.

I normally train at Bugis and need a partner when bench pressing 230lbs, but can never find one, which means i have to remain on a weight that i can handle with comfort, which doesn't really help me much, a little frustrating.

Hi Keith, I normally go 3 to 4 days a week afternoons, although I've not been for a while, pain in chest region, heart is in fantastic shape 48 to 50 relaxed per minute, just tested yesterday by specialist. X-ray tomorrow, hope to be back soon, short of breath for some reason, effecting my running, of course, I'll be lifting from scrath because of this incident.

I need to lose weight due to the layed off period, but yes it would help with a partner, if you can make it some afternoons, and you don't mind the age gap, that is.

Saturday: Well back from the X-ray, Diagnosis Bilateral perihilar shadowing is noted, Bronchitis, but no real symptoms only pain in Chest and short of breath and sneezing. total spent to find this out 600$.

Took almost 3 months and I suspected the haze from Indonesia, after they cleared me, of any heart problems. treatment antibiotics.

Although I was really impressed with the cardio care at Mount Elizabeth, and feel the 450$ for that check up was worth it, always wanted to be wired up on the tread mill and constantly tested every minute for blood pressure and heart beat. then told you have the heart of a pro athlete, at 45 beats to 50 at rest.

Although i was asked to take my foot off the accelerator, because of my age. Must admit I was a little worried in the begining, having been a very heavy smoker too for most of my life. been stopped a couple of months now though.

I think my trainer is well worth the money. I've been using a gym on and off for over 20 years and I do know my way round the equipment, but I have some health issues I need to work with and he liaises with my osteopath to do this (in their own time, FOC). He also varies my programme - I don't know from one day to the next what I'm going to be doing. He stops me getting bored and he pushes me just that little bit further. Having an appointment also makes me go to the gym instead of getting distracted by a cafe or clothes shop en route. :D

Hey, 45 beats a minute. Wow! I train early in the morning, though. Good luck getting training/recovering.

you can try calling Latif at 97646925. He was a personal trainer from California and recently, he set up his own gym in the East, Katong Area. his rates are very reasoable.. something to to tune of about S$500 to S$550 per 10 sessions / an hour each. He is also not a clock watcher, sometimes given his trainees the xtra hours.....
