Your hip, new play­ground

GET YOUR FIT­NESS AND RE­TAIL THER­APY FIX AT TRIPLEFIT SIN­GA­PORE.

Shape (Singapore) - - Get Fit News -

Look­ing at how quickly fit­ness and ath­leisure are gain­ing trac­tion in Sin­ga­pore, it’s not sur­pris­ing to see more gyms open­ing, with ded­i­cated space for sell­ing ac­tivewear. Strike while the iron is hot, right?

Triplefit Sin­ga­pore, the lat­est fit­ness­re­tail hub to open its doors (at Mil­lenia Walk), is do­ing just that – and more.

Span­ning 23,500 sq ft – roughly the size of 36 three-room HDB flats com­bined – this fit­ness cen­tre is as much of a gym heaven as it is a shop­ping par­adise.

Lo­cated at #02- 63 Mil­lenia Walk, it of­fers gym fa­cil­i­ties, group fit­ness classes, as well as a huge re­tail sec­tion sell­ing ac­tivewear and the lat­est wear­able tech. Aside from reg­u­lar group classes, it also con­ducts per­sonal train­ing and spe­cialised train­ing pro­grammes, de­pend­ing on your fit­ness goals. It’s open from 6.45am to 10pm on week­days, and 8am to 8pm on week­ends and pub­lic hol­i­days.

TYPES OF CLASSES

Ready to sweat up a storm? Join one of the group ex­er­cise classes. They are broadly clas­si­fied into three cat­e­gories: bal­ance, en­durance and strength. Bal­ance classes in­clude yoga and cal­is­then­ics, which are lower in im­pact and in­ten­sity; en­durance classes train both your car­dio and mus­cu­lar en­durance (think boot­camps); and strength classes work on boost­ing mus­cle def­i­ni­tion. Ex­pect many vari­a­tions of high-in­ten­sity interval train­ing (HIIT) to chal­lenge you. Book classes via www.triple.fit or the Triplefit app.

KICK­BOX­ING RIG

A great way to un­wind and un­leash your in­ner angst, kick­box­ing im­proves en­durance, co­or­di­na­tion and strength, giv­ing you a full-body work­out through lib­er­at­ing kick­ing and punch­ing com­bi­na­tions. It is done dur­ing Car­dio Kick­box­ing, High Im­pact and MMA Fit classes.

HIIT RIG

Prac­tise do­ing mon­key bars and cal­is­then­ics in this area, spe­cially de­signed for ob­sta­cle-race train­ing. Slam balls and ket­tle­bells are also avail­able for weight train­ing. To get ac­quainted with the equip­ment, join the HIIT classes or train­ing ses­sions like 20/40/20 and Ta­bata.

ENDURO AL­LEY

As the name sug­gests, this is where to train en­durance. There are no tread­mills – just badass ma­chines you’ve prob­a­bly not used be­fore, like row­ing ma­chines, air bikes and ski ergs, as well as ket­tle­bells and push sleds. En­durance classes in­clude Ath­lean and En­durofit.

STU­DIO

Triplefit has a good range of stu­dio work­outs like Pound, Pilox­ing and Zuu. Var­i­ous types of yoga like Hatha, Iyen­gar and Vinyasa are also avail­able.

RUN­NING ZONE

Open daily from 11am to 10pm, the re­tail sec­tion is di­vided into Run­ning, Train­ing and Bik­ing zones. Run­ning fea­tures shoes, tops, sports bras and bot­toms from brands like Un­der Ar­mour, Swiss run­ning shoe com­pany On, Ja­panese com­pres­sion wear C3­fit, Den­mark-founded New­line and Swiss-en­gi­neered Odlo.

TRAIN­ING ZONE
