Pure Fitness at Ngee Ann City – Singapore’s most high-tech gym
The upcoming holiday season usually calls for multiple rounds of turkey, mashed potatoes and ham. But there’s no need for guilt and dieting this festive season because Pure Fitness‘ latest fitness playground will be all the motivation you need to burn all those extra calories.
Boasting an impressive 28,000 square-foot arena right in the heart of Orchard Road, their newest gym addition comes with all sorts of impressive high-tech fitness gadgets like a virtual reality (VR) spinning studio and a 3D body scanner in addition to a brand new indoor athletic turf and even an extensive free weights training zone.
Here’s what you can expect at Singapore’s most high-tech gym:
1. Take part in a trippy mass VR spin class
Imagine facing a cinema-esque curved screen that projects all sorts of futuristic and dream-like courses instead of a blank wall for the entire duration of your class. An intense 45-minute class will take you through colourful courses through different terrains – one moment you might be going up incredibly steep glaciers, and the next, in space or even underwater!
2. Do circuit training with a ski machine and a 30m sprint track
Diversify your workouts and spice things up a bit by taking your training to their indoor Athletic Turf, and make full use of their Assault Air Bikes, Jacob’s Ladder, a 30m Sprint Track, and SkiErg – a ski machine!
They even have Sports Bleachers that you can use as part of your functional training!
3. Game on a stationary bike at the Innovation Lab

For the lone rangers out there intimated by the thought of mass classes, have a go on their Life Fitness Discover SE3 bikes at the Innovation Lab. Games like “Le Tour” and “Thunder Bowl” will have you up going up against live online players all over the world.
With tilts on the bike simulating actual in-game movements and integrated buttons on the handlebars for control, heart rate monitoring, and switching between levels of resistance – you’ll fast forget you’re even burning calories!
The current selection consists of 7 games, but the list does get a good refresh every once in awhile based on the feedback from users.
4. Spar with your friends at the Boxing and Kickboxing area
If the last UFC mega match has spurred you to take on a new sport, put your new skills to the test and challenge your workout buddies to a sparring match over in Pure Fitness’ Boxing and Kickboxing area.
