Has trying out pilates been one of your New Year’s Resolutions (for several years) but unable to find classes that suit your budget? Worry not (and no more excuses) — we have just the list for you.

Finding cheap pilates classes in Singapore seems nearly as impossible as successfully balloting for a BTO in Bishan. But, luckily for you, we believe in defying the odds — at least when it comes to finding a good pilates workout at a decent price. 

At Singsaver, we’ve rounded up the best and the cheapest studios that offer mat and/or reformer pilates. These studios will get you in shape for the new year, all while still leaving some room in your bank account to cop those Chinese New Year dresses you’ve been eyeing.

But, before scrolling on and booking your class, you need to know that there are two main types of pilates:

Mat pilates: This is a strengthening and lengthening form of exercise that focuses on your core muscles while also training your arms and legs. Similar to yoga, this workout is done on a mat, which allows for larger group classes, therefore making lessons cheaper. 

Reformer pilates: This one, on the other hand, involves the use of a reformer, a machine used to work out the entire body. This type of exercise is generally more intense and dynamic than mat-based pilates as it adds resistance to the exercises via the use of springs, which are part of the machine.

Due to the size of the machine and guidance needed, classes are typically smaller and generally more expensive (we’re looking at more than $100 per private session). 

But don’t fret, we won’t be recommending those. As promised, we’ve rounded up 7 most affordable pilates classes under $40 in Singapore, including reformer pilates.

SP+ Pilates/Yoga’s most value-for-money package is their in-studio 30-day pass, which allows you to access up to two pilates and/or yoga classes a day. If you’re hardcore enough, it only amounts to $5 per class. Super worth it.

Unlike other fitness centers that try to pack as many members as they can into a class as possible, The Pilates Flow keeps their group mat classes limited to only 8 people. They also ensure that members are getting the required attention by instructors in order to have a safe and beneficial workout.

Each 45-minute class will take you through various pilates mat exercises along with the occasional use of props such as the Magic Circle and light hand weights to aid your workout sessions.
