Gyms & Fitness Centres In Singapore To Build Strength

by | Dec 4, 2023 | Lifestyle & Wellness, Wellness

Singaporeans can take proactive steps to manage their health, prevent the onset of chronic diseases and seek support to lead healthier lifestyles. We see that in recent years, there are more fitness programs that cater specifically to seniors. Recognising the benefits of training, more seniors in Singapore have taken proactive steps to take charge of their health and age gracefully.

Benefits of training 

  1. Improves strength and balance which helps lower risk of falls. Older persons are more susceptible to falls due to muscle degeneration and also blurred vision. Increased levels of strength and an improved sense of balance can then help lower the risks of falls.
  2. Mood booster – Exercising alters the levels of chemicals in the brain, such as serotonin, stress hormones and endorphins. Regular exercise can help one sleep better and in terms boost one’s energy levels and mood.
  3. Improves heart health – regular exercise can help with weight management, lowered bad cholesterol and also blood pressure, all of which improves heart health

Keeping fit and being strong benefits not only yourself but also your caregivers. Here are our top picks for you to kick start your fitness journey – it is now or never!

Since 2019, Retrofit has been working exclusively with the Kidney Disease Foundation (KDF) on customised exercise programmes for their patients to improve health markers, functional strength and fall risk.

One thing we like about Retrofit is the support given to seniors and the emphasis placed on helping seniors maintain their independence. This includes training in activities of daily living, such as standing, walking, and climbing stairs.

Personal training

Personal training is always a popular option for those who want to improve their health and fitness. Personal trainers can customise a diet and exercise plan based on one’s goals and fitness levels. For those that do not fancy working out in a group setting or with others around, personal training might actually be a good option for that 1-1 attention. 



We know that starting out in fitness is no easy feat and may be intimidating to commit to a new fitness regimen, especially if you have not been exercising in a very long time. 

However, you should always be proud of yourself that you are taking charge of your fitness and are taking active steps to better your health. We recommend starting out with home exercises and see how you feel. Always seek advice from your physician before committing to any fitness routine.
