Coming to the gym after work has become a routine for Pradeep Nair, business development manager. Unfortunately this would change tomorrow (May 8th).

Amid a string of stricter community actions announced on May 4 by the Multi-Ministry Task Force on Covid-19, indoor gyms and gyms have been classified as high risk configurations and will be closed May 8-30.

Some other measures include reducing the size of social groups from eight to five people and reducing the size of the event.

In order to maintain his fitness, Nair plans to find the most effective and efficient alternatives to his daily workouts.

Today is his last workout at the Fight Zone gym.

The 27-year-old said, “They announced on social media that they intend to suspend membership May 8-30.

“Now that I can’t continue my routine of driving there after work, I need to find a way to replicate the HIIT [high intensity interval training] Exercises at home. “


One option Nair is considering is the online workouts that restart his gym. In addition, like other members, his membership will be suspended free of charge during this blocking period – all previously calculated fees will be calculated on a pro-rata basis.

Also for the True Fitness gym, they announced on their website on May 6th that all of their indoor gyms and studios will be closed for the same duration.

In the meantime, they would like to run outdoor courses and outdoor personal training courses, as organized outdoor training programs can continue – albeit with a class size limited to 30 and strictly enforced safety measures.

Some studios offer novel alternatives for those who can’t be stopped from continuing their home fitness routine.

Although class cancellations and membership renewals seem to be expected in response, the Absolute Cycle gym was just starting a bike rental program during a period of tightening.


The price is $ 450 excluding the $ 600 deposit. It includes a stationary indoor bike, spin shoes, one kilogram of dumbbells and a subscription to on-demand and live courses from home. If that’s what you’re interested in, you can purchase the AbsoluteClass indoor bike for $ 3,900 and with extras.

The increasing number of Covid-19 cases has led to this tightening of measures and has effectively brought Singapore back into phase 2.

A circuit breaker was introduced from April 7th to June 1st last year, prohibiting social gatherings in both private and public spaces.

During those two months, gyms and gyms had to get creative in running their classes, and many made full use of social media. For example, local singer and yoga enthusiast Tay Kexin conducted one 30 minute HIIT yoga session on Facebook Live.
