It’s February and it’s time to check in with reality: have you started working towards that fitness goal you’ve set for yourself at the start of 2022?
If you haven’t really done so, it’s not too late to start. Here are a few newly opened gyms that debut in the last few months for you to consider along with other options.
The Ripple Club
Previously known as Aqua Spin, The Ripple Club underwent a rebranding to provide more variety of aquatic fitness classes in hotels.
Its latest collaboration with Fairmont Singapore has seen a new boutique studio in the urban luxury hotel that offers energising and fun aqua classes to hotel guests, gym members, and members of the public. Here are the high-intensity, low impact fitness classes that The Ripple Club offers.
The Ripple Ride features specialised stationary bikes in water where participants pedal against the water resistance. There are three fitness classes you can choose from under this segment – Ripple Endure Class (50 minutes), Ripple Signature Class (45 minutes), Ripple Liit Class (50 minutes). Each class targets different parts of your body, so if you’re looking more for a lower body workout, opt for the Ripple Endure Class. If you’re just starting out, consider trying the Ripple Liit Class instead to get yourself warmed up to the exercise first.
The Ripple Box is an aqua boxing class that will give you a full-body workout. With the pumping music and energetic instructors around, you’ll be able to work on both your cardio and your strength with this class.
The Ripple Circuit is an all-rounded class that provides you with both cardio and strength training. You’ll get the chance to try out the aqua bikes, water-resistance equipment, and have lots of fun training.
