Looking for a great gym...any advice?

Post by afunexpatgirl » Wed, 07 Jan 2009 9:55 am

Hey there,

Recently moved from HK and I was a member of Pure Fitness at IFC. It offered lots of classes which I loved from cardio kickbox to yoga, as well as free weights and cardio machines.

Steam/sauna room as well. No pool, unfortunately. Lots of hip patrons in their 30's.

Can anyone suggest anything for me? I live by Kallang Park.

Many thanks!

There are 2 major gym providers here, that qualify for that you are looking for:

California Fitness
Fitness First

depending on work location but from the sound of it, Fitness first should be more you.

Fitness First is great, I can definitely recommend it. I go to the one at One Raffles Quay. Has sauna and steam room, showers... towels are provided if you need them, as are shorts and shirts. Very convenient if you are working and don't want to carry everything with you in the morning.

There are also other outlets with swimming pools.

www.fitnessfirst.com.sg, i think.

Whatever you do, don't join TRUE FITNESS.

Browse through the Health & Fitness branch. I've made a big song & dance about this Truly incompetant group there.

It was a great therapy session.

This one has got serious trainers who actually know what they're doing. It's an all women gym.

There was an article this(asiaone online if i remember right) week about a woman who won a sum of money in small claims court against true fitness but they refuse to pay. It was only when she hired a bankruptcy management company to seize their equipment legally that they gave her her refund in $50 notes on the spot.

I would recommend you First Fitness at Paragon. Do you need a trainer? Would recommend you my trainer - Chris Cheng, if you don't mind a male trainer.

im with california fitness and its pretty gud. u can also consider fitness first. think of taking a rotating memebership if u wud want to access multiple gyms. also gym memberships are highly negotiable. make sure u get the best for ur money. most of them also have referral schemes in place.
