Singapore’s largest ActiveSG gym opens in Sembawang
Singapore’s largest ActiveSG gym recently opened to the Sembawang community offering a 1,500 metre² facility with two accompanying dance studios.
The new gym and dance studios mark the completion of the new ActiveSG Sport Centre at Bukit Canberra, following the opening of its four swimming pools earlier in October.
All Singaporeans aged 65 and above have free access to ActiveSG gyms and swimming pools, including the newly opened facilities in Bukit Canberra in the Sembawang area, as part of Singapore’s drive to encourage active ageing.
Catering to varying physical abilities, the inclusive new gym features HUR machines which use air pressure in place of traditional weights.
The new equipment enables people of varying abilities to work out safely and more efficiently.
Adjacent to the gym are two dance studios which will offer a variety of accessible and affordable learn-to-play programmes such as Oxigeno®, Piloxing, Hatha Yoga and Zumba.
These programmes will be available for booking in November.
The ActiveSG Sport Centre at Bukit Canberra comes under the Sports Facilities Master Plan which aims to bring more innovative, accessible, inclusive and relevant sport facilities to all Singaporeans.
The plan also seeks to improve accessibility to sporting facilities by situating them within a 10 minute walk from housing estates by around 2030.
Over 200 residents attended the opening of the gym which was also attended by the Advisers to Sembawang GRC GROs –Ong Ye Kung (Minister for Health) and Dr Lim Wee Kiak.
