Neue Fit in Kallang Wave Mall has the perfect class for anyone who wants to learn martial arts without getting kicked in the face.
There are plenty of benefits for women to reap from martial arts training. Not only does it teach you self-defence techniques and improve your stamina, but it also boosts your self-confidence. If the only thing stopping you from signing up for a martial arts class is the fear of getting punched and kicked in the face, Neue Fit has the perfect class for you.
The new lifestyle fitness and martial arts studio in Kallang Wave Mall offers a variety of classes, from fast-paced Brazilian jiu-jitsu to slower yoga sessions.
Co-founder Grace Huang wanted Neue Fit to be a space where people could break away from the monotony of a typical gym set-up and pursue their fitness goals through a unique combination of fitness routines with martial arts.
Try a Muay HIIT class
While both Muay Thai and HIIT are available individually, the one class that will give you a teaser into martial arts while giving you a satisfying cardio workout is the studio’s unique Muay HIIT programme.
The beginner-friendly non-combat class will have you shuffling between jabs and round kicks (moves commonly used in Muay Thai) at sandbags, to burpees and kettlebell swinging squats in intervals for 45 minutes.
Level up with Brazilian jiu-jitsu
Want to learn some self-defence techniques? Neue Fit offers three Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) classes. Prior experience is needed for BJJ No-Gi and BJJ Intermediate. So, those new to the combat sport can try BJJ Beginners, where experienced instructors will guide you through light sparring sessions.
Get your yoga fix
Mix up your workout routine with a yoga class or two. Yoga NeueB teaches hatha yoga and is tailored for beginners who wish to learn foundational poses with the proper alignment and breathing techniques. For more seasoned yogis, the studio also offers sequence-based Yoga Flow and Yoga Core if you’re gunning for that six-pack.
Refuel at the health bar
If you’re feeling peckish pre- or post-workout, head to the studio’s health bar, Re-neue, for acai bowls (from $6.90), acai cones ($3.90) and gluten-free protein shakes ($8.50 each).
You can even shop for activewear
The studio is in partnership with New Balance and has its retail corner stocked up with merchandise from sports bras and tanks to training shoes.
How to book a class
For now, members can simply walk in at the time slot of the class they wish to attend and sign in at the reception. However, no guarantees that you will get a spot when it gets crowded.
A one-month membership package starts from $100. For members, single class rates start from $22 and $28 for off-peak and peak hours respectively. For drop-ins, single class rates start from $25 and $35 for off-peak and peak hours respectively.
