That paiseh feeling when you flash your pits in front of men while doing overhead presses at the gym? We get it. That’s why some of us prefer sweating it out at these women-only gyms.
Whether it’s because you get overly self-conscious or overly distracted (ahem), you may find it more worthwhile to sleep in for an hour more than to work out around men. But that doesn’t mean you should stop keeping fit — not especially when there are several women-only gyms in Singapore.
Relieved and quite like the idea of “women empowering women”? Check out these women-only gyms.
