Looking to get fit and develop healthier habits? Here are some personalised fitness training and nutrition programmes in Singapore that can help you achieve your health goals. Read on to find the best one for you!
#1 If you want to make dramatic, sustainable changes
If you’re looking to make dramatic changes to your body in a short amount of time (anywhere from 10 to 15 weeks), then UFIT’s Health Ignition programme should be ideal. This fully personalised body transformation programme offers an all-around exercise and nutrition overhaul. We’re talking one-on-one personal training sessions, customised nutrition support and more, for maximum results.
According to the experts at UFIT – a leading fitness community here in Singapore for the past decade – your weight is 80 percent defined by what you eat, and 20 percent by exercise. So, when you work on nutrition and fitness together, you get dramatic results. In short: a lean, well-sculpted body that not only looks great, but functions better, too.
Here’s what’s included with Health Ignition
- 25 personal training sessions with a qualified personal trainer
- Full access to UFIT’s online training platform, which gives clients access to trainers even when they’re travelling outside of Singapore
- 3 additional nutrition consultations and guidance throughout the Health Ignition programme
- Daily lifestyle tips from the nutrition and coaching team
- In-depth Well Tech health screen and report to customise your individual nutrition and training journey
- Muscle, bone and body composition measurements
- In-person nutrition screening and advanced body fat calliper testing (body fat measurement) with a senior nutritionist
- Monthly personalised meal plans tailored to your health and fitness goals, along with a UFIT recipe book
Why it’s worth it
This all-in package deal gives you the best bang for your buck. For around the price of 25 PT sessions, you’ll also get nutrition coaching, health screenings, monthly recipe books, meal plans and full access to the online platform.
#2 If you’re in it for the long haul, but travel often
If you need some flexibility due to an intense travel schedule, UFIT’s Online Coaching programme may be right for you. And, it can be nicely complemented with the PT programme for when you’re in town and can train in-person – in fact, many clients like to purchase both programmes together.
Why it’s worth it
With UFIT’s PT programme, you’ll get customised, one-on-one fitness training and access to the UFIT app, which includes real-time messaging, exercise videos, healthy eating ideas and more. All your data is saved under your profile in the app, so your progress can be tracked along the way.
Then, when you travel, you’ll want to have the benefits of remote programming, too. UFIT’s Online Coaching programme provides fitness and nutritional guidance from wherever you are. You’ll get:
- A movement screen and baseline testing to identify your strength, mobility and balance
- A strategy session with your coach to discuss goals, lifestyle, strengths and weaknesses. This can be done via video consult.
- A bespoke fitness training programme designed by your coach, based on your assessment
- Monthly review sessions with your coach to discuss training, progress and goals, and make any adjustments to the programme.
This can be done in person or via video conference.
- Nutrition calculator and macronutrient breakdowns based on your goals. In other words, you’ll get recommendations on the amount of calories you should be consuming.
- Ongoing nutritional guidance from your coach, plus monthly recipe books
#3 If you prefer working out with a buddy
Group classes are a great option if you want to get fit and social at the same time. And, UFIT’s got tons of classes, both indoors and out. These classes can either stand alone as your core focus or complement your personal training packages for greater variety.
Indoor group classes
Many of UFIT’s indoor classes take place at the all-new UFIT Club Street in the CBD. These ‘Showroom’ classes are designed to make you perform at your best, whether that be through strength training, cardio conditioning or developing a strong foundation. They include Kettlebell, Burn, Power and Build, which combine functional fitness and metabolic training to target all muscles.
Also held indoors at UFIT Club Street (in the beautiful upstairs classroom) are classes to stabilise, mobilise and strengthen the core; these include Pilates, Stretch and Circuits Core. There’s also the high energy, calorie-blitzing, bring-your-buddies-for-some-fun class, Dance. (And don’t miss Ladies’ Night for Dance on Wednesdays at 7pm, with drinks offers at Burn, UFIT’s on-site restaurant and bar).
Great February deals: Until 8 February, everyone can enjoy a free indoor class at the Club Street Hub. Then, from 8 to 29 February, all indoor classes at Club Street are less than $10!
Outdoor group classes
UFIT’s outdoor classes are an opportunity to exercise with top trainers in some of Singapore’s most beautiful outdoor locations, including Fort Canning Park, the Botanic Gardens, East Coast Park and Sentosa Cove. In fact, UFIT holds over 90 outdoor classes a week across 15 locations islandwide! From fast-paced Metcon and HIIT classes to Box (which incorporates boxing, kick-boxing and Muay Thai) and strength-training Build classes, there’s something to get everyone’s heart pumping.
If you’re looking for a bootcamp-style class that really mixes things up, Burn is a great cardio workout that’s suitable for all fitness levels. Expect some mobility and strength training, plyometrics, AMRAPS (“as many reps as possible” workouts), running hill sprints and more. Burn RX is the more advanced version, if you’re looking for an even bigger challenge.
Why it’s worth it
Training in a group with like-minded people is great for motivation and can make exercising more fun. Participants get to enjoy the group energy while still getting enough personalised attention to ensure they’re doing the exercises correctly.
UFIT group classes are all available via credits that can be purchased on the app. You can buy a bunch of credits and use them across all indoor and outdoor classes. This gives you greater flexibility and variety to try something new or join a different location.
How to get started
No matter which option you choose, the UFIT experience starts with a free health consultation to assess each client’s individual needs and goals. You’ll be asked some questions about your lifestyle, and offered a blood pressure check and In Body Scan, which measures muscle, body composition, BMI and more. This data is used to put the perfect plan in place for you!
Health encompasses more than just a cardio workout. Sure, exercise is key to that total body transformation you’re after, but it’ll only get you so far if you’re not getting everything else right along the way. For example, what if your diet is counter-productive to your fitness training? And, what if you’re doing the wrong exercises with that knee injury of yours?
For this reason, UFIT offers a one-stop shop with access to nutritionists, health coaches, trainers, physiotherapists, rehab specialists and sports medicine doctors. Having these specialists available in the same physical space allows for a more holistic and seamless experience. This, in turn, makes it much easier for clients to achieve all of their health and fitness goals. The cherry on top? Every specialist you interact with can upload notes on your metrics and progress all in one place on the UFIT app!
UFIT’s brand new Club Street Health and Fitness Hub (21 Club Street) is the flagship hub, with a 2,500 square-foot gym floor, two indoor studios, an outdoor training yard, nine dedicated rehab treatment rooms and more. (Bonus points for its charming shophouse setting; the gym took over Senso’s old space). There are two other integrated hubs, too – one at One-North and one at Orchard.
