But with a myriad of gyms around, why join Virgin Active? What do you want/expect from a gym? We are pretty impressed with the facilities and the spacious gym. But thats not all, they provide flexible membership that require no long-term commitment, cashless payments in the gym, ARTIS line equipment from Technogym and classes unique to Virgin Active.
Oh and don’t forget their interactive cycle studio with wraparound visuals, a Rest & Recovery Zone, and some sleep pods for a lunch time snooze or if you are hiding from that annoying boss that calls you incessantly.
We sent our writer Raphael to check out the all new Zuu class, and this is what he has to say.
(Zuu is a high intensity workout which increases joint mobility, promotes fat burning and building lean muscles all at once)
The Virgin experience at Virgin Active Raffles Place is my best gym experience. The satisfaction that I derived after a 30 minutes Zuu Class, is amazing. It’s been such a long time since I had such an intensive but fun workout.
Putting members as its top priority, they provide the best and incorporate fun into your fitness routine. Muscle aches the next day? Well, Virgin Active has the solution for you – Relax and Recovery Zone. After the 30 minutes Zuu class, I went to try out the Steam and Ice room. Alternating between these two rooms, I can feel the difference as my body was definitely more relaxed after. Do check out their experience showers! I was intrigued by the “Rain” experience shower, and very tempted to ‘dance’ in the rain. The “Breeze” was a tad too cold for me, but some may like the options available.
The small pail that hanging by the ceiling that contains cold water, pull the rope and swooooosh!. The Salt room which aids in skin rejuvenation and purification of one’s respiratory system. Read a book or sleep in that room in the comfy beds provided.
Virgin Active prioritise its members first, catering to everyone’s needs. If you are looking for a wholesome experience, this IS the gym for you.
In a nutshell, Virgin Active aims to provide a different experience for all you gym bunnies out there.
