A quick and easy breakdown of the fees and facilities for some of the top Premium Gym Memberships in Singapore.
If you’re looking to get fit and fab and can afford to shell out above $150 each month on gym memberships, look no further. (If you’re on a tigher budget, check out our article on Gym Memberships Under S$100/month).
We’ve compiled a list of the five most well-equipped gyms in Singapore with a full range of facilities that will allow you to pack a serious amount of quality workout time into your busy schedule. With swimming pools, sleep pods, salt inhalation rooms, steam rooms and sauna, you really get what you pay for. These gyms also have a mind-boggling range of the latest group exercise classes with names such as ‘Spartan Workout’ or ‘ICE Mania’.
Sir Richard Branson launched the first Virgin Active gym in Asia in 2013 and he upped the ante in the gym business by introducing irresistible features to entice members. After a stressful day at work, how does pampering your soul in the Himalayan Salt Inhalation room sound like? And who wouldn’t want to soothe those aching post-workout muscles in a steam room or indulge in an experiential shower?
With cutting-edge gym equipment and over 100 interesting classes to choose from, you will have a blast of a workout. With their signature zero-gravity sleep pods as well as meeting rooms for when work calls, Virgin Active gyms may end up being your second home.
Virgin Active’s facilities are available for members on both annual and weekly membership packages.

Frequent travellers will be delighted to get access to over 91 Fitness First Clubs throughout Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
What sets Pure Fitness apart from the rest is the Innovation Lab. Personally tested by ‘Techspert’ John Leung, he selected the best technology to enhance your workout. Look out for the Innovation Lab logo on new pieces of equipment and gadgets in the gyms and each piece stays only for a limited time.
