Jab at Aqua Bags at Still Boxing

Instead of the traditional heavy bags stuffed with sand, Still Boxing uses aqua bags. As its name suggests, these bags are filled with water, offering lower impact and higher shock absorption, so unnecessary stress or exhaustion doesn’t get to you.

This way, you can focus on maximising your workout, hitting harder for an extended time. With the combination of Aqua boxing, cardio, strength, and endurance formats, you get all the benefits of a workout without the strain.

Still Boxing is located at 6A Shenton Way, #B1-06 OUE Downtown Gallery, Singapore 068809. Open Mon-Fri 8.30 am–1 pm, 4.30pm-9.30pm; Sat-Sun and Public Holidays 9am-5.30pm.

Serious Boxing at Juggernaut Fight Club

If you are serious about the art of combat, you will be happy to know that head coach of Team Singapore, Arvind Lalwani, is the founder of Juggernaut Fight Club.

You don’t have to be on the national team to train here, but knowing that you are in the company of national boxer Tay Jia Wei and Singapore’s first professional boxer, The Sniper – Nurshaidah Roslie – will give you the additional push to train hard. The boxing classes here are suitable for all levels, and if you want to mix it up a little, try boxing and Muay Thai together.

Juggernaut Fight Club is located at Beach Road and Chinatown. Open Mon-Fri 11am -10pm, Sat 10am- 4pm. Closed Sun.

Box to the Beat at Box Office

If you think boxing is all about the fight, Box Office will prove you wrong. Here, boxing is made fun with curated rhythmic moves with themed music. Throw some punches to “Taylor and her exes”, or knock out the blues with “Emo anthems”, or maybe you’d like to groove with a cross and a hook to your favourite  Kpop.

The themed classes will give you just as much intensity as the signature Knockout class, which features boxing-inspired cardio, muscle strength training, and metabolic conditioning. Classes start as early as 6am on weekdays so you can get your fitness on.

Box Office is located at 35 North Canal Rd, #03-01, Singapore 059291. Open Mon -Fri 6am -10pm, Sat- Sun 8am -10pm.

Train Your Warrior Spirit at Spartan Boxing Club

Although it is named after the most fearsome warriors in ancient Greek, don’t let its name scare you. Just like the Greek Spartans, Spartan Boxing Club values honour, fitness, and courage, but unlike the soldiers, the boxing club connects with people through boxing.

They offer an extensive range of classes from basic boxing, kids and ladies classes, to sparring, strength, and personal training, making boxing accessible for everyone. Bring a friend and book a partner class, or if you like, get some fresh air with the outdoor classes. Cultivate the warrior spirit in you to keep healthy.
