Regular spin classes are easier on your joints than, say, running on the treadmill. Consider sessions at Aquaspin or the YWCA. In addition to improving flexibility, aqua spinning is shown to reduce post-exercise soreness.
Aerial fitness has the potential to increase muscle strength and tone your body, especially the core. Try out the beginner classes at Upside Motion, which uses silk hammocks to combine yoga, dance and aerial acrobatics. Or just give aerial yoga a go at Platinum Yoga. For something that’ll seriously spark your sensuality, consider aerial dance classes and Acro Polates.
Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) at East Coast Park is one of the best ways to enjoy the sun and surf while getting a solid workout. Rachel Charis offers lessons from $70 for a group of three. Alternatively, try the SUP beginners at Constant Wind for $33.

Who says you need actual mountains or boulders to climb? The fully air-conditioned Climb Central has auto belay lines and safety briefings for uncertified climbers, while Onsight Climbing has the biggest indoor space as well as 43 climbing lanes, more than 100 routes and has a 15-metre speed climbing wall. Not sure you’ll like it? Climb Asia has a 60-minute “taster session”.
Mastering martial arts takes years of dedicated practice and has a high level of fitness, and is not for the faint of heart. But it’s worth every drop of sweat. Fama provides classes such as BJJ, Muay Thai as well as a general fitness class. Grit Gym takes a similar approach but is a no-frills option for people who want to train, without the option of a nice shower afterwards.

This style of yoga uses specific kriyas (postures) to help you work on your breathing, meditation and mantras, and it doesn’t require a lot of flexibility. Check out the classes at One Heart or Adam Fazlur’s Wednesday night sessions at Art of Living.
