Your hip, new playground
GET YOUR FITNESS AND RETAIL THERAPY FIX AT TRIPLEFIT SINGAPORE.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Gym bunnies, this is your arena – everything you need for yoga, pilates, strength and conditioning, circuit training and any group fitness class. Besides Under Armour, check out Every Second Counts, a British brand that produces workout clothes in quality fabrics and feminine designs.
This section stocks exclusive bike jerseys, bike shorts and bib shorts, from Swiss-engineered Odlo to militarystandard Newline.
