Virgin Active
First published on . Updated on 6 Nov 2013.

Those looking ahead to the great end-of-year binge (and worrying about how to work it off) can find help at Richard Branson’s new Virgin Active outpost. Located at One Raffles Place, it’s the brand’s first in Singapore and offers a slick gym experience in seven zones spread across three levels.

The club has equipment for on-trend exercises like anti-gravity yoga and power plate workouts, alongside high-tech cardio and weight training machines by Technogym that can store workout information, track your progress and even ensure that you’re keeping pace while you’re working out. Those looking to take a proper beating can pop into the half hour flash classes of The ZUU training style (using your bodyweight in high intensity intervals), then stave off the morning-after body aches in steam and ice baths (or try out the first-of-its-kind salt cave).

Doing more to draw a following beyond its shiny new equipment, Virgin Active gives the option of flexible memberships that are billed fortnightly. The price is fixed at $42.50/week, which is a bit pricier than other gyms around town, but having a fixed rate takes out the ridiculous hassle of sitting through a hard sell and haggle, making the quest for fitness that much easier.
