With gyms so fancy they feel like home, there's no reason to put off those New Year resolutions.

Celebrity Fitness

Celebrity Fitness’s pioneer outlet in Rochester Park gives you great views of greenery from the treadmill. It’s also equipped with impressive facilities, including top-security lockers (accessible only with your membership card), as well as cardio machines with built-in personal TV and high-speed Internet. If you’re sick of your regular routine, we recommend their Floating Yoga (they’re the first to introduce it in Singapore), peloton spinning and myriad aerobics classes.

Pure Fitness Asia Square

If you’re looking for convenience, check out this swanky and practically faultless facility in Marina Bay. The huge shower and locker rooms provide everything from fluffy towels to full workout attire. There’re four Macs set up by the reception table so you can check in on work during lunch hour, as well as an impressive library of DVDs for rent. The cardio area overlooks the magnificent cityscape, but the real jaw-droppers are the indoor training pool, a 4 by 35m track and the MMA Zone, fondly known as “The Cage”.

Sky Fitness

They can’t seem to pamper you enough here—you’ve got views of Sentosa and Mount Faber, a relatively comprehensive array of free weights, a spa, a child-minding facility, a health food cafe, and get this: a concierge service. That’s right—you can get your laundry picked up, next flight booked and movie seats reserved while you work those abs. If that doesn’t motivate you, their in-house training programs—one of which is golf conditioning—should do the trick, as should their dance and yoga classes.

Verita Gym

It’s a regular gym, but because it’s situated within the Verita Advanced Wellness center, it’s one of our top picks. As a member of the center, you get access to not just the gym facilities, but also a host of other services that improve your well-being. The fact that it’s located in a quiet patch right off Orchard already scores it points, but the yoga, pilates and TRX classes, massages, high-tech therapies (including one in a salt cave), as well as an aroma bar make it a real gem.
