Pasir Ris Sports and Recreation Centre (SRC), Singapore Sports Council's (SSC) newest addition to its family of 21 SRCs, features a comprehensive range of sports facilities with a diverse retail mix to provide an all rounded experience for guests.
Pasir Ris Sports and Recreation Centre has well integrated sports and lifestyle facilities. Their residents can now enjoy a sporting and healthy lifestyle while relaxing and building bonds with family and friends. Their residents have long wanted such a centre in Pasir Ris, and are all delighted at these wonderful new facilities.
The SRC offers modern sports facilities which are refreshingly different from conventional types, such as a swimming complex with water play features and a Jacuzzi, a gymnasium with pool view, an air-conditioned sports hall with seating capacity for 2,000 spectators, and a 5-a-side soccer court. A wide variety of lifestyle amenities is also offered at this SRC ranging from sporting apparel shops and F&B outlets, to a child education centre and 24-hour convenience store.
Pasir Ris SRC is also thoughtfully designed to be user-friendly for all. Braille markings and tactile warning strips are provided where necessary to guide the visually-impaired. In addition, a ramp is provided for wheelchair users to gain access to the pools while slip-resistant tiles are used at the pool decks and for all wet areas. In addition, Pasir Ris SRC is the first of its kind as an 'eco-friendly' sports complex, adding on to Singapore's recently earned accolade as Asia's greenest metropolis based on the Asian Green City index. Surrounded by nature, Pasir Ris SRC adopts a 'sports in a park' concept and blends seamlessly with the neighbouring town park without dividing fences.
The SRC is designed with environmentally friendly and energy-saving features such as a rainwater-harvesting system to irrigate surrounding plants, vertical 'green' walls and landscaping to reduce ambient heat gained, and photo-voltaic cells for energy generation.
Pasir Ris SRC will be the first SRC in Singapore specially designed to give guests the feeling of being in a 'green' sporting sanctuary right in the middle of the town centre. Not only does the new SRC make for an enjoyable environment for residents, the design helps limit our carbon footprint. Adding to the 'green' mood at the Pasir Ris SRC official opening, nine trees were planted at the side entrance of the SRC by DPM Teo, Acting Minister Chan, MPs for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC and Punggol East SMC.
Pasir Ris Sports and Recreation Centre (SRC) spans over 1.4 hectares in size and comprises facilities including a swimming complex with two pools, a multi-purpose indoor sports hall with a viewing gallery for 2,000 spectators, a gymnasium with pool view, two tennis courts, a 5-a-side soccer court, and a dance studio. It is designed as a place for play and relaxation and is the first SRC in Singapore that is specially designed to give guests the feeling of being in a 'green' sporting sanctuary right in the middle of the town centre.

Thrive, the first gym opened by MetaPhysic Fitness, is located in the Tiong Bahru area, about a minute by foot from Tiong Bahru Market.
MetaPhysic Fitness was borne out of a rejection of conventional fitness dogma, that often focuses solely on aesthetic appeal. Instead, they choose to train the body to function as a unit, as it functions in daily life, and in most sports, as it is supposed to function. They focus on natural human movement patterns. They train to improve movement efficiency, fitness levels, strength levels, and overall health. More than anything, they train to improve the quality of one’s life in general.
MetaPhysic Fitness is not a new method of training. They didn’t invent anything revolutionary or groundbreaking, nor will they ever try to make that claim. They just subscribe to training methods that have been largely forgotten in the mess created by the globo-gyms of today. They first identify imbalances and work to correct them. They believe in pain-free before fat-free, and in strength that matters before strength for show. Instead of shallowly focusing on fat loss and muscle gain, they choose to focus on training the body in the ways it is supposed to be trained, in ways where fat loss and lean muscle growth is inevitable, anyway.
Also important to them is providing a safe environment to train in, where egos are left at the door, where you don’t have to worry about, be turned off by, or be intimidated by the big bloated guy grunting and yelling for attention as he does bicep curls, or the unhealthily thin model-wannabe on the elliptical who looks at you with judging eyes. To them, health is holistic, not just physical, and people like that are not good for your health.
Don’t get them wrong, they like when people push so hard they grunt and groan, and they like training good-looking people – It is the attitude that is commonly seen at commercial gyms that they don’t agree with. Ultimately, they hope to inspire the pursuit of mastery of your own body, beyond physical appeal, however small or large your chosen version of mastery is. They believe that if they help you focus on this, your physique and health will have no choice but to improve, and you’ll have no choice but to enjoy your life more.
They believe that the human body is supposed to move freely, so that’s how they train. They believe in science and research, so they constantly keep up-to-date. In general, they correct imbalances, train all 3 fitness-related energy systems (similar to how an athlete trains), and use a variety of tools and methods to get it done in a fun and challenging way. Expect to squat, lunge, swing, toss, twist, throw, jump, lift, press, push, pull, row, run, thrust, drag, heave, haul, sprint, hop, skip, snatch, jerk, stretch, rotate, stabilize, bend, resist, slam, and grip...among other things!
Tools they like to use include: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, climbing rope, thick rope, heavy rope, sleds, plates, suspension trainers, kickboxing/martial arts basics, pulling bars, resistance bands, macebells, swinging clubs, bodyweight movements, sandbells, weight vests, medicine balls, and plyometric boxes.
Standing at 8 metres high, 15 metres long and 7 metres wide, a total of 28 climbing lanes (routes changed frequently) await you. Using the latest technology from T-Wall, this gym was built from scratch using the Triax system.
Triax is more than just an inexpensive alternative to art cliff climbing panels; various multi angled climbing faces that normal artificial climbing panels cannot offer can be created. This is also the greatest highlight of Climbers Laboratory. Triax consists of several times glued panels, which are endowed with a special coating that is very functional for climbing. This coating is highly abrasion resistant and can be tuned to the desired roughness.
Dirt resistance as well as durability are attained with the surface quality. The climbing surfaces are coloured and size of the granulation easily selectable. This uniquely designed wall has mounting options for 30 holds per square metre and offers huge variations of hold attachment possibilities. This gives the route setter much more options to choose from as compared to a conventional climbing wall.
T-Wall pays attention to optically responding architecture with unique elements. All elements of Triax are planned computer-assisted and manufactured in precision down to the exact millimetre. They are therefore firmly installed, ensuring stability. Conformity to safety is what we always ensure even as we play with fancy hold attachments and climbing routes.
The 99-year leasehold development features two-bedroom, two-plus-study, three-bedroom, three-plus-study and four-bedroom units, as well as high-end single-level penthouses with seven bedrooms.
Sim Lian Group creates homes on the tenets of prime location and accessibility, quality workmanship and maximising usable space and A Treasure Trove is no different. They wanted to complement the water living experience in Punggol by introducing water features which would appeal to all members of the family.
With a total of 300 units released for sale in Phase One, the project has an average price of S$866 psf.
The 882-unit condominium includes a 50 m lap pool, children’s pool and hydro-gym to foster healthy living among families.
Strategically situated at the junction of Punggol Walk and Punggol Central, the condo is a three-minute walk from Punggol LRT / MRT station and the bus interchange. It is also located near schools and an upcoming suburban mall in Punggol.

Vivafit, a market-leading women’s gym from Europe, is getting ready to open the doors of its first Singapore franchise in Tanjong Pagar Plaza on Monday. Having led over 40,000 women worldwide to lose weight, Vivafit is now set to help Singaporean women get fit and develop healthy habits in bite-size 30-minute express workouts.
Cecile Jamoulle-Ogren, General Manager and Master Franchisee, Vivafit Singapore said: “Like a lot of women out there, I have always dreaded going to the gym and always had an excuse for not going. The Vivafit concept is amazing because it takes away all those excuses and makes it easy and enjoyable to get in shape. Our workouts are great for women of all ages and all fitness levels. They are also designed to fit with the busiest of schedules. We offer a complete fitness package in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
Vivafit offers members a fun and fast way to get fit and lose weight. At the core of the programme is a 30-mintue circuit made up of 20 stations combining hydraulic machines and recovery platforms designed to deliver a total body workout. Because the circuit is short, a workout is easy to squeeze in before work or on a lunch break. Gym-goers also can jump in at any time which means that members can set their own schedules. In addition to the circuit, Vivafit offers customized 35-minute group exercise classes designed by Les Mills, a world leader in group fitness programmes. The group exercise classes – Bodyvive, Bodybalance and Pilates – will feature new choreography, routines and music every three months to keep classes fresh.
Not only concerned with the effort members put in at the gym, Vivafit offers a total fitness solution. Members will have access to health tips, nutritional advice and recipes dished out by trainers in the gym and on the company’s Facebook page.
Vivafit memberships are designed to replace the need for a personal trainer at a fraction of the cost. On joining, members are asked to set fitness goals and Vivafit trainers work with each member to achieve these over time. Because membership is limited at each outlet, Viviafit is a place where everyone not only knows your name but also your fitness goals. Trainers at the gym know members so well that they are able to offer personal instruction and encouragement to everyone throughout circuit training and other classes.
To ensure that members stay on track towards achieving their health and fitness dreams, Vivafit will track each woman’s progress month on month. If that’s not enough to get you to the gym, you can expect to get a reminder call from your friendly Vivafit representative if you skip out on exercise for ten consecutive days.
More than just a gym, Vivafit will also encourage its members to get to know one another through social events outside of the outlets. Creating a community around each fitness club will mean that members are guaranteed to see friendly faces every time they head for a workout and they will encourage each other to work towards fitness goals. All of this is delivered in a safe and non-judgmental haven where you won’t find any men or even mirrors for that matter.
With plans to open 25 franchises in the next three years and 100 by 2020, Vivafit will soon be wherever you are whenever you need a fitness friend.
