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.
