Treadmills have audio jack. Weights machine no. Bikes don't have I think.

Classes are generally busy/full and look intense from the outside. They must be doing something right if the crowd keeps coming. Though this will probably vary depending on the branch you use.
oh i see... do the step machines have audio jack?

i actually went for one trial class, really is packed. but u have a pt, they must be doing sth right to keep the crowd coming.

thanks for ur reply!

Hahaha heng my one doesnt have those auntie uncle working out at the weights section, if have all will be found at the yoga / other grp exercises

Anyway which branch do u work out at?



I've attended their RPM classes, quite alright, gives you the motivation to cycle through one hour without feeling bored if you were to do it alone. Gonna try out Bodycombat and Bodypump soon though :>



Actually pardon me for asking this noob question.. but where is the audio jack on the threadmill located at? =x

Yeah unless you go for the really early morning classes, then not so packed. I guess most people go gyms like FF also for the classes, that's why so crowded. Certain classes dominated by females, sometimes see liao also dont feel like entering tsk
is the RPM also called spinning? too bad not every branch has this class. just pure cycling? i tried the bodycombat for my trial, quite fun eh, i like that class.

Squats and deadlifts superset just feels like a big nono to me.

The new gym @ Ubi actually belong to Aspiring Goals Functional Training Centre, Ziklag fitness is co-sharing the place
Aldrin say that the new gym will be a playground for his staff (conduct bootcamp training)
Aldrin's current gym will still be used for personal training, more privacy.

Carl just conducted a bootcamp training on Sunday. 18-Sep
We had 4 people rotating around 6 station and was not restricted by the space there.
Size of new gym according to Aldrin = Current gym + torture chamber (massage room) + 30% more

There's a bathroom to shower in the new gym.
Offical opening heard is on 1st Oct

See liao damn gao wei.. Today morning see one dead 'pool' of flies, some still alive at the indented tile for u to put ur soap or w/e, was like 20-30 of them. Splashed some water on them to wash all their bodies away.

I think now I know why some people prefer to go shower naked already, so after shower dont need to try to flick those flies off their clothing
