Trapeze Rec. Club
For someone who is about to hit the big 3-0, I definitely pay more attention to my health compared to my younger self. Besides cutting down on the cups of BBT I drink in a week, I’ve also recently discovered an interesting way to boost metabolism and improve circulation ‒ by plunging into an ice bath at Trapeze Rec. Club.
You don’t need “health” as an excuse to try it out since it’s perfect for the SG weather too. Here’s more about the unconventional sessions.
If you’re under the impression that ice baths are just about “soaking in cold water”, well, you’re wrong. Ice baths are way colder than the temperature of your usual shower, and they have been scientifically proven to stimulate the production of norepinephrine.
What’s that you ask? Well, it’s a hormone responsible for improving energy levels and focus, that leads to the release of endorphins. Now that you have these bliss-makers in your system, you’ll find yourself happier and more relaxed.
According to Trapeze Rec. Club, ice baths are also a great way to enhance your mental well-being. They explain that by deliberately exposing yourself to a cold environment, you get to “cope better, and maintain a calm, clear mind when confronted with real-world stressors.”
Furthermore, even a brief dip in an ice bath can boost your metabolism, as your body burns more calories to keep you warm.
The best time to opt for an ice bath is after working out, so perhaps after a gym session with bae, consider extending your date with an icy soak at Trapeze Rec. Club. Do note that ice baths are only available for workshops.
The wellness club
Besides offering ice baths, Trapeze Rec. Club is a wellness centre that provides various fitness and recovery services. It offers convenient access for those working in the CBD who want to break a sweat after their 9 to 6 grind, thanks to its location near Maxwell MRT station.
You can push your limits while you train muscles at their gym, work on inner strength through their yoga classes, and prioritise mental health when you attend their mental well-being sessions.
If you’re already impressed by the variety of services that they offer, wait till you check out their facilities.
Trapeze Rec. Club is huge on creating a soothing environment, so it’s not surprising to find their interior adorned in calming colours like taupe, sage, and slate blue. Plus, the wooden flooring and furniture make the wellness club a perfect spot to snap your OOTD after working out.
Don’t just head home after achieving your weekly workout goals. Trapeze Rec. Club also boasts an aesthetically-pleasing canteen, where you and your gym buddies get to hang out and catch up over yoghurt bowls and smoothies. Since they only use organic ingredients, rest assured that you’ll be properly fueled up.

Level Up Your Gym Dates By Soaking In An Ice Bath
Apart from the many benefits that come along with soaking in an ice bath, the “chilling” activity also allows you to take a break from Singapore’s sweltering heat. For more information, visit Trapeze Rec. Club’s official website.
