well, you can sign up online with fitness first and try out. Crowd not so bad overall for 18 clubs but need to book using app some facilities like steam sauna not available have to bring own bottles to fill up waters cup not provided. The price is all quote online. Unless your company have corporate rates or you getting AIA vitality to sign up have to call the club to speak to sales. For example, like 1 year commitment to all club access you are paying 143SGD per month but early termination charges is 50 percent of remaining commitment, if you getting one month commitment to try out will be extra 55 bucks or 4 months commitment another 20 bucks per month. If you attend classes can buy as add on anytime can remove it no contract required per month basis.

IMHO, Very difficult to book slots. Not worth getting. Unless FF location is very convenient to you, or your company pay for it.

since 2020 is has been very difficult to secure bookings of time slots to go to the gym, unlike in the past 2019 able to walk-in, now all have to prebook 46hrs in advance and for popular time/classes in the after work hours it’s like 50-60 people grappling for the 20 spaces available (when fully booked the waitlist can reach 30-40)

sportssg should consider allowing to open at maximum capacity since we now all go back to the office and squeezed on public transportation like 60 people in a bus?

My personal experience - I frequent the Market Street location and it's possible to get a gym floor slot the day before.

overall access to gym floor is still alright, it’s the gx classes that are quite tough to secure a booking.

is it easy to secure bookings at amk ff ah?
what bookings first? Gym floor is easy.

Classes, really depends. Freestyle ones conducted by the trainers there = easy. The other classes that use the studio = hard.

They still got mouths to feed so I have empathy.

multi locations doesn’t even attract me as wfh most of the time.. sign one-club is cheaper anyway

From MOH website today. Waiting for FF update on mask



[Updated 21 Jun 2021] Can indoor mask-off sports/ exercise activities resume?
A: Gyms and fitness studios may resume indoor mask-off sports/ exercise activities in group sizes of up to 2 persons, and in classes of up to 30 persons including the instructor, with safe distancing of at least 2m between individuals and 3m between groups. For mask-on activities and outdoor mask-off activities, these can continue in groups of no more than 5 persons, in classes of up to 30 persons including the instructor. For more details, please refer to SportSG's website here.
