Cheap Gyms Near Me In Singapore: Gym Memberships That Are Less Than $100 A Month?!

profileKenneth Fong

All of my friends know that my New Year’s Resolution is to stay in shape and exercise more. (I know, I’m basic, but it is a good goal to work towards.)

But here’s the thing, I always feel so unmotivated to exercise… So I figured, maybe a gym membership might push me towards regular exercise.

After all, I’m all about living a healthy, strong, and functional life.

For a rock bottom price, of course.

That’s why I also went through the trouble of comparing soooooo many vendors just to find out which one sells the cheapest protein powder.

“How do you stay fit while not blowing a hole in your savings,” you ask?

Simple.

Just go to the cheapest gym near me, and focus on performing compound exercises with good form.

I can’t help you with the exercise part because you’ll need proper training and supervision.

But I can, at the very least, help you with finding cheap gym memberships in Singapore.

TL;DR: Cheap Gyms In Singapore with Gym Memberships <$100 Per Month

There’s nothing wrong with “luxury gyms” like Fitness First, True Fitness or Virgin Active.

But hey, a 20kg dumbbell in a neighbourhood gym is going to weigh exactly the same as a 20kg dumbbell in a fancy gym that provides cucumber water, towels, and access to a sauna.

If you can do without the latter, check out this comparison to find some of the most affordable gyms in Singapore:

Which Is The Cheapest Gym In Singapore?

If cost is your only consideration, I’ve categorised the various <$100 per month gym membership options into the following for your convenience.

Also, I’ve factored in any one-time registration or access key tag fees that they might levy so you have a better idea of which is truly the cheaper option.

Here are the most affordable gyms in Singapore

So… Which is The Best Option?

TBH, it’s not enough to just look at cost if the cheapest gym is halfway across the island from where you live.

Chances are if you’re heading to the gym, it’s probably after school or work when you’re on the way home.

With this in mind, I picked out a couple of options based on the following scenarios.

1) If You Live In The Heartlands: Active SG Gym ($9 To $30 A Month)

Source: ActiveSG

No hidden charges.

No admin fees.

No one-time surcharge rubbish.

A year’s membership will cost:

  • $300 for adults
  • $180 for students (12 to 17 years old)
  • $180 for senior citizens (55 years and older)

Don’t sniff at the humble public gym though…

Most of them have undergone extensive renovations and are currently stocked with pretty decent equipment that is sanitised after every time slot.

They’re also available in the heartlands, with up to 25 outlets across Singapore, which makes them easily accessible no matter where you live.

The downsides?

  1. There aren’t any personal trainers available (just staff who are there to ensure you don’t do something stupid like… steal a dumbbell) so you’ll really need to know what you’re doing if you step into one
  2. It can get a little crowded during peak hours but just share the stations and machines lah…
  3. Operating hours are mostly from 7am to 10:40pm so it might not be the best option for you if your working hours are irregular

Do note that the following Active SG gyms operating hours are from 7am to 10pm:

  1. Ang Mo Kio CC Gym
  2. Toa Payoh West CC Gym
  3. Enabling Village Gym
  4. Bukit Batok Gym
  5. Senja Cashew Gym
  6. Kallang Basin ActiveSG Gym

This is where you’ll find me.

2) If You Need A 24 Hour Option In The Heartlands: GymmBoxx ($50 To $75 A Month)

Source: Gymmboxx

All GymmBoxx locations operate 24 hours, 7 days a week.

And as far as 24-hour gyms go, it’s probably the most affordable and accessible one you can find in the heartlands.

A year’s membership will cost:

  • $900 for adults
  • $720 for students and NSF (25 and below)
  • $600 for senior citizens (55 years and older)

Is there a downside to GymmBoxx?

It’s about thrice the price for adults as compared to ActiveSG gyms.

But that’s a small price to pay for Life Fitness and Hammer Strength equipment (read: high-quality) as well as 24-hour access.

Also, I’ve only been to the one at Century Square a couple of times during the twilight hours.

And sometimes.

JUST sometimes… You’ll find a couple of weirdoes.

Source: Giphy

But I suppose you’ll find weirdoes anywhere at those hours.

Other than that, the flexibility of 24-hour access to properly maintained, professional equipment is a huge draw.

Oh, just in case you’re wondering, personal trainers are available to help you customise your training regimen.

And that’s part of the reason why you’re paying a premium.

3) If You Need A 24 Hour Option If You Live In Slightly Ulu Places: Anytime Fitness ($90 onwards)

Source: Anytime Fitness Singapore

With 77 locations islandwide and 5 more branches opening soon, you’ll probably find an Anytime Fitness close by no matter how ulu your home is.

Best of all, Anytime Fitness gyms are open 24 hours daily (hence the name, duh…)!

Anytime Fitness membership prices start from $90 and might be higher depending on branches.

I know, I know, some of the branches might break the $100 limit.

BUT! This also means that it is possible to get a year-long membership for cheap depending on what kind of promotions are running when you choose to sign up!

Also, always ask the staff as it never hurts to see what kind of discounts you can get – especially if you choose to sign up for the long-term.

The downsides?

  • It’s a huge franchise so the quality and price will vary from outlet to outlet
  • Some branches are smaller than others and might not have the equipment or facilities which you’re looking to use

Pro-tip: A friend of mine signed up for an Anytime Fitness membership in Malaysia, before deciding to move to Singapore.

And because Anytime Fitness members get worldwide access

Source: Anytime Fitness Singapore

Yep.

He’s taking advantage of the exchange rate and is paying WAY lesser than what you’d be paying for in Singapore.

I suppose the next time you go on a trip to JB, it doesn’t hurt to enquire at the nearest Anytime Fitness if you see one…

#justsaying

Note: Anywhere Access to all Anytime Fitness branches worldwide can only be activated after 30 days of membership.
