In the current climate of virtuality, staying fit is no longer determined just by being physically present at gyms and fitness studios. The latest COVID-19 restrictions (Phase 3 Heightened Alert) in Singapore means gyms and indoor fitness studios have opened again, but if you're still wary about that, you always have the option of online training or outdoor classes.
Stay responsible, vigilant and fit by exercising in the comfort of your own home or participating in outdoor fitness classes with proper safe distancing measures. Here is a list of safe and affordable online and outdoor exercise classes. Whether you are looking for HIIT, Yoga, Zumba and Bollywood dance cardio sessions or looking for a live workout session with a personal trainer in Singapore, we've got your back.
