Learn martial arts without getting kicked in the face at this Muay-HIIT class.
There are plenty of benefits for women to reap from martial arts training. Not only does it teach you self-defence techniques and improve your stamina, but it also boosts your self-confidence. If the only thing stopping you from trying martial arts is the fear of getting hurt, Neue Fit has the the ideal class for you.
THE PERFECT COMBO This new lifestyle fitness and martial arts studio in Kallang Wave Mall offers a variety of classes. While both Muay Thai and HIIT are available individually, the one class that will give you a teaser of martial arts plus a satisfying cardio workout is the studio’s unique Muay-HIIT programme.
The beginner-friendly non-combat class will have you shuffling between jabs and round kicks (moves commonly used in Muay Thai) at sandbags, to burpees and kettlebell swinging squats in intervals for 45 minutes. There’s even an all-ladies Muay-HIIT class for beginners led by a female instructor.
VARY YOUR WORKOUTS Want to learn some self-defence techniques? Level up with one of Neue Fit’s three Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) classes. Prior experience is needed for BJJ No- Gi and BJJ Intermediate. So, those new to the combat sport can try BJJ Beginners, where experienced instructors will guide you through light sparring sessions.
Yoga NeueB teaches hatha yoga and is tailored for beginners who wish to learn foundational poses with the proper alignment and breathing techniques. For more seasoned yogis, the studio offers sequence-based Yoga Flow and Yoga Core if you’re gunning for that six-pack.
GO SHOPPING If you’re feeling peckish pre- or postworkout, refuel at the studio’s health bar, Re-neue, for acai bowls (from $6.90), acai
cones ($3.90) and gluten-free protein shakes ($8.50 each).
Forgot your workout gear? No problem. Head to the retail corner, which is stocked with New Balance merchandise such as sports bras, tanks and training shoes. BOOK A CLASS For now, members can simply walk in at the time slot of the class they wish to attend and sign in at the reception. However, no guarantees that you will get a spot when it gets crowded.
A one-month membership package starts from $100, while single class rates are priced from $22 for members, and $25 for non-members.
Neue Fit is located at 1 Stadium Place, #02- 07, Kallang Wave Mall. For more information about their class schedules, visit www.neue.fit.
