Keeping fit does not have to mean shelling out serious cash every month. Read on for options to help keep your wallet full and your waistline trim at the same time.
1. ActiveSG credits
If you are a Singaporean or a permanent resident living in Singapore, you qualify for $100 worth of ActiveSG credits, which can be used to pay for single entry access at 16 local gyms located islandwide. If you are always on the move, you can opt for the MyActiveGYM™ scheme, which provides ActiveSG members with unlimited gym access to all ActiveGYM™ islandwide.
Single entry access for ActiveSG gyms is priced at $2.50 for adults.
2. Sign up with Gymmboxx
Gymmboxx is a new local gym chain with 7 gyms scattered around Singapore. The gyms are categorized into Standard, Classic or Signature, and these differ according to the facilities offered. They offer 3, 6 and 12 months membership plans. Membership rates start at as low as $70/month for the Gymmboxx Classic for adults, which offers access to six gyms. Attractive promotions and deals are regularly offered on their website as well.
3. Check if your credit card perks include free access to gyms
Some credit cards offer free access to gyms and you can take advantage of this perk to save on your gym membership fees. The DBS Woman’s World Mastercard is one such example, with complimentary access to selected True Fitness and True Yoga outlets twice a month and a joining fee waiver on new signups at these gyms.
4. Check if your company has tie-ups with gyms nearby or utilize your workplace gym
If you work for a large corporation, your workplace is likely to have a gym with free access for all employees. If not, check if your company has a corporate deal with a gym nearby, which entitles you to a corporate discount or a welcome package deal when you sign up.
