With non-stop dinners and catch ups with family and friends the past 2 months, we’ve all been feasting on tonnes of good food. There’s nothing wrong with living life once in a while – but we also need to keep ourselves in shape for all the spicy señors and señoritas out there.
If you’re still trying to get your fitness routine back on track, perhaps the extra incentive of cheap gym packages can help motivate you.

Being a newbie in the gym can be scary, whether it’s the ambience or the countless swolebros wandering about. At Virgin Active, the environment might seem more like a luxury clubhouse than a gym – with facilities such as a hydrotherapy spa, pool, and even jacuzzi available for members.
Virgin Active’s membership packages are suitable for those looking to dip their toes into fitness without being thrown into the deep end. After all, their weekly fee starts from just $30.28.
Do take note that the price comes with a 12-week commitment – but we think you’ll be getting a lot with the price you pay. The package comes with 1 in-club workout or class a week that can be brought forward to the following week. You also have a range of classes to choose from – from yoga flow, to reformer pilates, and even spin classes.

Opening hours: Mon-Fri 6.30am-10.30pm | Sat 8am-5pm (Closed on Sundays & PH)

By now, you’ve surely heard of ActiveSG gyms with 27 of their outlets popping up islandwide. Unlike most big-name gyms in Singapore, ActiveSG’s outlets are conveniently located in the heartlands. This means that you can save on your travel expenses AND time – so if you think you can pull the “I don’t have time” card, think again.

With the convenience comes a price point that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. It starts from $15/month for off-peak memberships and $2.50 per entry, so we can safely say they are one of the cheapest gyms in SG. Their gyms come fully equipped with everything from elliptical trainers to free weights, so you’re in good hands here.
Some ActiveSG gyms also even come with facilities that cater to people with disabilities – like braille dots on the treadmill user panels, and a “hearing induction loop” system.
