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.
