Feel Great with These 5 Unique Activities

Singapore may be a small island nation, but there is certainly no lack of novel activities that fitness enthusiasts can choose from. Several new activities have sprouted in the past few years, and many people have flocked to them in search of new experiences and holistic wellness. If you’re eager to get fit in other ways apart from the conventional means, here are five interesting workouts that have been trending in recent times.

For those seeking yoga with a twist

Many variations of yoga have emerged recently, and Floatfit takes the activity to the pool where you mount a floating platform that is anchored to the ropes along the swimming lanes. While on this platform, you can perform yoga or even High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercises.

For those who love being in the pool

As its name suggests, AquaSpin involves cycling underwater, albeit on a stationary bike, as well as HIIT and circuit sessions. Unlike cycling on land, AquaSpin is said to burn three times more calories, and it even has the advantage of being a zero-impact workout. Exercising underwater is also great for rehabilitating an injury as water buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure help to accelerate healing.

For the beach lover

Although the sport of Stand-up Paddling (SUP) arrived in Singapore a few years ago, it was only recently that it really took off among fitness enthusiasts. Essentially a cross between canoeing and surfing, SUP requires one to stand on a board and manoeuvre using large paddles in the sea. This outdoor activity is especially effective for conditioning your core muscles.

For the “garang” athlete

First introduced to Singapore in 2015, the annual Spartan Race has become one of the most important events in many people’s fitness calendars. The race, which features more than a dozen obstacles over a few kilometres, makes for a gruelling cardio and strength workout. Be prepared to crawl through mud under barbed wires, climb ropes and even jump over a blazing heap of logs.

For the uber social fitness lover

Working out alone can be boring so it’s no surprise that fitness lovers have been gathering for boot camps where they can chase their common goals together. Held outdoors at various locations across Singapore, boot camps by companies such as Phyzique, OzFit and UFIT offer a great opportunity to get an all-rounded workout that will improve your strength, stamina and flexibility.

Protect your eyes while having fun

Exercising outdoors exposes you to UV rays that can harm the eyes, while working out in a swimming pool means there’s a chance your eyes will come into contact with chlorine, which can wear down the protective film that shields the cornea. When working out at sea, your eyes might get affected by the salt and bacteria found in open water.

As such, it’s important that you take measures to protect your eyes with BRAND’S® Berry Essence. BRAND’S® Berry Essence is made up of a delicious blend of seven premium berries from Europe and America, is one convenient way to fortify your vision. The drink This easy-to-drink essence contains essential nutrients such as Zinc and Vitamins A, C and E that keep your eyes healthy, as well as pectin, a soluble fibre that reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

So the next time you spend an invigorating day out in the sun, don’t forget to give your eyes some tender loving care with a bottle of BRAND’S® Berry Essence.
