Do you nd car­dio-based work­outs dull and mo­not­o­nous? Well, get­ting your car­dio x doesn’t have to be a snooze fest. There are many ac­tiv­i­ties you can do be­yond con­ven­tional ex­er­cises, like run­ning, brisk walk­ing and swim­ming.

En­duroFit, avail­able at TripleFit, is def­i­nitely one work­out worth ex­plor­ing. The 45-minute class com­prises in­ter­val train­ing with a fo­cus on car­dio-type ex­er­cises. You’ll use equip­ment like row­ing ma­chines, air bikes and Sk­iErgs (the ma­chine’s move­ments mimic crosscoun­try skiing), as well as tools such as jump ropes, sleds and ket­tle­bells. You’ll al­ter­nate be­tween do­ing the ex­er­cises and hav­ing short rest pe­ri­ods un­der the guid­ance of an in­struc­tor.

What’s unique about En­duroFit is that it in­cor­po­rates heart rate train­ing. All par­tic­i­pants wear a Po­lar tness tracker that doc­u­ments how hard their heart is work­ing in real time.

The ob­jec­tive is to ex­er­cise at 75 to 85 per cent of your max­i­mum heart rate (that’s 200 mi­nus your age) to help you build your aer­o­bic base and ef ciency while torch­ing calo­ries. Ev­ery­one’s progress will be pro­jected onto a screen for easy ref­er­ence so you’ll know when you need to ramp things up to get your heart rate in the right zone. This class is suit­able for all lev­els; ev­ery­one from to­tal be­gin­ners to those who work out reg­u­larly will ben­e­fit from this class.

TripleFit is at # 02- 63 Mil­lenia Walk. Other than En­duroFit, there are a va­ri­ety of other work­outs that can help to im­prove your bal­ance, en­durance and strength. That’s not all. TripleFit is more than a gym. It also boosts an im­pres­sive re­tail zone, with the lat­est ac­tivewear from premium sports brands.

Swiss run­ning shoe label On, Ja­panese high-per­for­mance com­pres­sion wear brand C3­fit and Amer­i­can sports­wear label Un­der Ar­mour are just a hand­ful of the no­table names.

Healthy food that’s per­fect as post­work­out nosh is also read­ily avail­able. A kiosk with cus­tomised pro­tein shakes and whole­some bites stands right at the en­trance of TripleFit. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.triple.fit.
