8 Outdoor Gym, Yoga & Fitness Classes To Work Out At For Folks Who Want To Play It Safe

Outdoor gym & fitness classes in Singapore


Social distancing restrictions these days are harder to keep up with than the Kardashians. Some might say they’re even flakier than their ex. The group size restrictions for indoor, mask-off sport activities was previously announced to be five, but will fall to two from 21st June 2021 onwards. If you’re like us and simply want to play it safe, here are eight outdoor gym, yoga & fitness classes available now:

Note: After 21st June, outdoor activities can continue in groups of up to five, with sports class sizes capped at 30 max.

Regardless of whether you just miss Friyay EDM nights or are looking to add a dose of cardio into your lives, XSpin Club has affordable spin classes to try, priced from just $14. Great for Easties, their 45-minute outdoor spin sessions are held at Downtown East on both weekdays and weekends. 

No worries if you’re a complete newbie as they hold beginner-friendly classes. Complimentary towels and shoes are provided, and socks and bottled water are available for purchase if you forget to bring them.

2. Skyline Aqua – HIIT on water


Work-life balance isn’t the only thing you’ll achieve at Skyline Aqua, home to floating HIIT classes (from $35/session). If you’ve done and dusted those online HIIT videos, spice up your next workout here on a floating mat over water. Squats and mountain climbers are some of the muscle building and fat burning workouts you can expect while sweating it out with a backdrop of the Singapore Flyer and CBD.

Falling into the water is something you might aim to avoid initially, but it’s pretty much inevitable, and honestly, pretty fun. Haul yourself back up on the float and you’re all cooled down and ready to continue with the rest of the workout.

Address: Park Royal Hotel, 7500 Beach Road, Singapore 199591
Opening hours: Varies, depending on schedule
Telephone: 9450 0948

Gardens by the Bay ($28/session)

4. Spartans Boxing Club – Outdoor boxing

While some prefer a meditative yoga session to clear the mind, punching it out may be a more cathartic solution for others. With both indoor and outdoor boxing classes, Spartans Boxing Club is where you can unleash your inner Street Fighter and release any inner angst on a target. Doesn’t hurt that you’ll get toned arms and abs while you’re at it.

Prices begin from $250/month for unlimited classes, with 10 locations available islandwide

Unlimited access packages are available from $328/month.
