Weekends are made to chill. But what if you brought your friends, better half or family to try something new? Keeping active is key to both physical & mental health – and it’s also a great way to spend time with your loved ones and challenge yourself. So check out these 7 cool & unusual activities you should try next time you get a day off!
1. Pretend to be a Ninja Warrior at NinjaSG
Have you ever watched a Ninja Warrior competition and hope you could learn some of the athletes’ super cool techniques? Well, now you can! NinjaSG is an obstacle gym located in GroundUp Climbing space and equipped with all sort of crazy elements. Pegboards, ropes, rings, floating doors, you name it! They also tweak the obstacles quite often, making every visit unique.
You don’t need to be crazy fit to go and give it a try – but it definitely takes practice to master everything, so get ready to sweat.
They have launched a while ago some classes as well, led by talented Alvin Gan and mixing obstacle training & fitness – the best way to learn while having fun.

2. Be faster underwater at The Ripple Club
Not a fan of commercial gyms? Let’s get wet instead. Aquaspin offers a brand range of low-impact classes, each with its own specificities. Perfect if you’re looking for a fun activity (you can chill by the pool afterwards) that will get you toned without getting sweaty!
3. Bounce your way to fitness at Bounce
If you’re bored with your usual gym classes, you have to try Bounce Fit classes at least once. They mix high interval intensity training and trampoline skills, to tone up abs, bum and thighs. Go for the basic class if you are a beginner and push it a step higher with Bounce Fit Combat, inspired by MMA & boxing.
HIIT classes aren’t your thing? You can always visit and enjoy the trampoline park outside of classes if you are willing to learn tricks & techniques.
Bounce Fit classes at Bounce, schedule & booking available online. Bounce, Cineleisure, 8 Grange Road #09-01 Singapore 239695
4. Be graceful on the ice at Kallang Ice World
If you’re tired of the heat outside, it is the perfect time to give ice-skating a try. Get your most comfy sweater, some woollen socks, and a pair of loves: you are ready to ice-skate like a pro!
There are a few ice rinks in Singapore, but the Kallang one is both fairly cheap and quiet – they also offer classes for beginners, if you don’t feel comfortable stepping & sliding on the ice straight away.
One more thing: last time we checked, you needed to book a slot in advance.

5. Go deeper with Freediving
Also known as breath-hold diving, freediving is a fascinating discipline. By taking classes at the Singapore Freediving Academy, you’ll learn how to control your breathing and make the most of every gasp of air. If it looks intimidating at first, it offers a great opportunity to calm your mind, clear your thoughts and focus on yourself for once. They offer beginners classes and workshops to get comfortable with the idea – and you’ll soon be able to join a trip at sea (whenever you’re ready!)
