Spanning almost 15,000 square feet in the basement of Change Alley shopping mall, Raffles Place, Urban Den is fast becoming one of the best members-only gyms in Singapore.
Unlike other fitness studios, the grunge-style studio has state-of-the-art equipment and a wide range of instructor-guided classes. Besides conventional HIIT group classes and personal training sessions, an additional range of workouts, such as spinning and restorative yoga, are available to get the adrenaline pumping.
The gym fills the entire basement of the Change Alley mall with dark black finishes and high contrast lighting. The fittings are gleaming and state-of-the-art, the bathrooms are fitted with Dyson hairdryers and have their own personal attendant.
Most importantly, Urban Den caters to the needs and wants of fitness types with a wide variety of workouts and programs. Muscle heads have a well-appointed weight room. Intensity junkies can check out Bodycombat and HIIT classes. Those looking for a deep stretch have Gentle Yoga.
Membership is flexible, but before committing, motivated fitness enthusiasts are encouraged to sign up for the trial program at an affordable S$49 for three sessions. Once completed, gym junkies can sign up for class-only packages that come in single class, 10 class, or 20 class options with validity of two weeks, ten weeks, and twenty weeks, respectively.
The benefits don’t end once you put down the weights. Members receive discounts at restaurants such as Twyst. There are also deals on sportswear. That said, we suggest signing up for a monthly gym membership as it gives you access to the gym floor and 1 class per day.
Urban Den is located at 30 Raffles Place, #B2-01, Change Alley Mall, Singapore 048622. Open Monday to Friday, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
