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

My friends (and some readers) know that 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.

Seedly Saving Money Is Good For Your Health

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

Simple.

Just go to the cheapest gym in Singapore, 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 out with finding the cheapest gym in Singapore!

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

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

If you can do without the latter, check out this comparison to find the most economical option for you:

Which Is The Cheapest Gym In Singapore?

Bench Press

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 which they might levy so you have a better idea of which is truly the cheaper option.

So… Which The Best Option?

Stationary Bike

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 ($25 To $30 A Month)

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.

They’re also available in the heartlands which means there’s really no excuse for you to not drop by while you’re on your way home.

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 7am to 10pm so it might not be the best option for you if your working hours are irregular

This is where you’ll find me.

Say hi if you see me there!

2) If You Need A 24 Hour Option In The Heartlands: GymmBoxx ($65 To $85 A Month)

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:

  • $780 for adults
  • $600 for students (21 and below)
  • $480 for senior citizens (55 years and older)

Is there a down-side to GymmBoxx?

It’s about twice 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.

But I suppose you’ll find weirdoes anywhere if it’s late enough.

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.

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)

With 65 locations islandwide, 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…)!

A month’s membership will cost you anything between $90 to $110.

I know. I’m cheating a little bit here as it’s slightly above the promised under $100 options.

BUT! The range 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 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

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 take the KTM train to JB, it doesn’t hurt to enquire at the nearest Anytime Fitness if you see one. #justsaying
