As the saying goes, ‘Health is Wealth’. What’s the point of being wealthy but not being able to enjoy it? Keeping fit doesn’t need to cost a bomb in Singapore. We’ve listed the cheapest gym memberships in Singapore under S$100/month with facilities decent enough to satisfy most of your workout needs.
Cheapest gym memberships in Singapore
Arguably the most affordable gym in Singapore with branches scattered islandwide. Reasonably well-equipped, the gyms will satisfy your need for strength training and cardio workouts.
ActiveSG Gyms are quite affordable and with $100 ActiveSG credits still available for use till 31 Dec 2018, expect to see quite a crowd during peak hours. If your work schedule allows, opt for off-peak (before 4pm on weekdays) membership. With rates as low as S$15/month, you can work out in a less crowded gym and not have to wait to use some popular machines or equipment.
Optional classes such as Piloxing, Power Yoga and Zumba are available for you to book online. Fees for these classes are separate and not included in the normal gym membership.
GymmBoxx is a fuss-free gym, whose monthly membership rates are published online. It allows you to compare various gyms and their packages without having to worry about pushy sales tactics. What’s more, GymmBoxx is open 24/7 and can be found in the heartlands (more branches coming up).
Another plus factor: opt for single workout sessions at $8 per entry if you’re not ready to be tied down by any packages. Students and senior citizens enjoy concessionary rates.
Passion card holders get 5% discount while civil service club members get 10% discount off membership rates.
Started by Dennis Tew, a passionate bodybuilder and former Singapore Bodybuilding Federation (SBF) coach, the equipment in these gyms are state-of-the-art. This makes his chain among the cheapest gym memberships in Singapore.
With membership rates starting at $78/month, enjoy workouts without burning a hole in your wallet. Some branches are open 24 hours, so you can train anytime you want.
Catch the latest online promotion for the branch opening of Farrer Park in October, where you get 4 months free for every 6 months of membership you sign up for $420.
That works out to be $42/month for 10 months (offer available only for first 50 early birds).
With about 40 branches across Singapore, this gym is truly ubiquitous. Open 24/7, you get to work out anytime you fancy. Once you’ve verified your home gym, that is, the origin branch in which you first signed up for membership, you can activate your worldwide access after 30 days, workout anywhere and stay fit even while travelling.
While prices are not stated online and the rates vary from location to location, the average fee per month hovers around S$98/month. Contact the gym for more information.
The Gym Pod
First of its kind in South East Asia, The Gym Pod is a 24 hour self-automated container gym located at JTC Launchpad@Ayer Rajah Crescent.
The Gym Pod fits a maximum of three people in one workout session. This funky yellow container comes equipped with a treadmill, yoga mat, dumbbells, Olympic EZ Bar and a guided weight plate-loaded bar. After sweating it out, enjoy warm shower facilities just a mere 20 seconds walk away at Block 79.
