Singapore Indoor Fitness Classes
Home workouts are great when you’re looking to save money without having to step out of the house to stay fit. But when your bed is an arm’s length away, that 10-minute workout may seem dreadfully long.
If you’re bored of your current workout routine, here are 12 boutique fitness classes you can join with your girlfriends.
For the cycling fanatic
CruCycle brings the concept of the ever-popular SoulCycle to Singapore.

They’ve got five classes a day, tailored to fit the schedule of office workers and various classes for different fitness levels. You’ll also be entitled to complimentary shoe rentals, towels, lockers and even fresh fruit. For the health-conscious, there’s a juice bar next door for your post-workout hydration.
