We may have gained a bit too much weight from all that Chinese New Year feasting, which may make getting back into the work week too much of a drab. However, fret not as we have put together a list of fun-filled classes here that you can consider joining to help burn your fats!
Here are the top 10 fitness classes for weight loss to tone up after Chinese New Year:
1) Aquaspin’s Water Cycling Classes
If you’re looking for a place to beat the heat yet get in a killer workout, then Aquaspin is the place to be. What makes this place so special is that they offer spin classes in a swimming pool. That’s certainly something new to us! The classes here make use of water resistance which has many perks such as better recovery from injuries and zero impact on your joints and bones.
2) CruCycle’s Spin Classes
For those of you who still prefer your conventional spin class that doesn’t involve water, you can always check out CruCycle. Here, they have 50-minute full body workouts that will leave you feeling exhausted yet satisfied after each session. We recommend their signature class, “The Pack Ride” which includes light weights and core exercises.
3) DanceVault Studio’s Bungee Workouts
DanceVault Studio is the place for a workout that will literally take you to new heights. Their Bungee Workout classes involve you strapping yourself into a harness and getting hooked up to a bungee cord that’s suspended from the ceiling. Here, you’ll get to dance and do aerobic moves to upbeat songs which definitely adds an element of fun to the workout. We like how the bungee cord supports some of our weight, which helps us feel lighter, allowing us to do hops, dives and other cool tricks.
4) Evolve MMA’s Muay Thai Classes
Schedule: Classes from 6.45 am – 11 pm
Locations: Evolve Far East Square, Evolve Orchard Central, Evolve PoMo Mall, Evolve MMA Kinex,
Price: One free 30-minute class for first-timers
If you would prefer something that involves a bit more kicking, then Muay Thai is the answer to all your problems. Evolve MMA’s Muay Thai Classes are taught by instructors who boast years of fight experience and are some of the most skilled practitioners in their field so you know you’re in good hands. They also offer free trial classes to let you see if Muay Thai is your kind of thing before you jump into it.

5) F45’s Functional Training Classes
F45 is an Australian gym that focuses on functional training movements such as lifting, pulling, squatting and pushing which will help you sculpt your body and give you that toned, leaner look that will look great in a qipao. All the exercise plans are also different each and every time, so you’ll never get bored of it. Each class lasts 45-minutes, which sounds long for a class with so many high-intensity workouts. However, we promise you that time here will pass by so fast that you’d wish the class was longer!
6) Pure Yoga’s Detox Flow Yoga Classes
