Remember earlier this year when you said that you wanted to “live a healthy lifestyle and keep fit”? Let’s be honest. Some gyms are wayyy too intimidating. Instead of working out to feel better, going to some gyms kill your self-esteem. With the first quarter (almost) down, if your fitness goals are still looking bleak, here are five friendly (stress free) boutique gyms to kickstart your exercise routine.
Yes, time is a luxury. But at Ritual, all you need is a good solid 30 minutes. Basically, this gym practises a 20-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) that runs every half hour from 6:30am – 9:00pm. If you’re concerned about the intensity of the workout, the pros at Ritual will first evaluate your fitness level when you sign up and then prescribe you routines that match your capabilities.
From kettlebells, slamballs, to body weights, this full body workout is limited to only 10 persons per session, so make sure to schedule and book your session ahead. You workout barefooted, and sports attire and towels are provided… so stop making excuses and make this your ritual.
