This new model of an all-access membership to gyms and fitness studios that you can simply book on your mobile phone app on-the-go, is shaking the fitness world by storm.
KFit is started by the founder of Groupon Malaysia and is now available in many major cities such as Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Auckland, Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Why limit yourself to just one gym or be tied down to an expensive gym membership for months of commitment? With just a flat monthly fee, you get to enjoy a variety of classes from different gyms and studios, where you could be doing Capoeira today, Yoga tomorrow, Zumba the next week and Aqua Spin the week after.
KFit also gives you access to more than 596 locations island-wide, including access to hotel gyms and fitness clubs at Sheraton Towers, Concorde Hotel and Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa!
Here are the exciting and interesting activities on KFit that I have tried so far:
Double Flowrider | Wave House Sentosa
1 hour on the double flowrider on weekends already cost $40 which is around half the price of the KFit app per month. So, if you do utilized the app well, you can actually save some hard-earned money while exercising!
Ganban-yoku Therapy | Anti-oxidant Centre
The “anti-oxidant’ beds are made of special ceramic tiles which releases negative ions that will be absorbed by the body to release toxins. The benefits include anti-aging, weight loss, muscle relaxation and better immunity.
The staff will give you plenty of alkaline water to drink to replenish fluids throughout the session and after the 45-min session, you will be given a delicious chilled homemade enzyme drink (lemonade or hawthorn berry) to cool down your body temperature. My skin also looks more radiant after the “anti-oxidant” treatment!
Electro-muscle Stimulation (EMS) | BodyTec Singapore
A 20-min intensive workout is all you need in a week to see effective results as it is equivalent to 1-1.5 hours of exercise depending on hard you work out. This is very ideal for busy working professionals.
There are electrical impulses to train specific muscle groups on the entire body, safely controlled by the trainer. It is a high intensity, personalized training where the trainer will customized a workout according to your fitness level, to strengthen and tone the muscles.
Note: My trainer has informed me that the maximum allowed for EMS training is 1 session per month on the KFit app. So far, I have gone for EMS trainings twice in 2 months.
I find that this kind of “buffet-style” fitness membership suits my lifestyle and personality as I can get bored easily from doing a singular activity all the time and really enjoys the flexibility and excitement of exploring new workouts to try on my KFit app.
At SGD79 for the first month and SGD99 from the second month onwards, KFit seems to offer the widest range of activities and most number of partners as compared to their competitors (i.e. GuavaPass and Passport Asia).
Do note that KFit restrict your access to 3-5 slots (depending on the activity) for an activity at the same gym/fitness centre every month, which means that you are also “force” to try out different sports and activities to get out of your comfort zone.
You’ll need to wait till the next month to do that particular activity again once you have utilized all the slots in that month.
In a nutshell, if you’re thinking of trying a new fitness regime or pick up a new sport in this new year, KFit might be able to give you more flexibility to try them out and see if the activity really suits you.
Plus you need not break the bank to try out different activities and fitness centres.
