Achieve your fitness, health and body goals with a certified personal trainer in Singapore who can come up with customised exercise regimens and meal plans that work for you
Personal trainers in Singapore aren’t just for those who can’t seem to muster enough motivation to get back to the gym or stick to their workout routine. Having your own fitness coach can also help you up your game and hit specific goals that are difficult to achieve. Plus, these kickass sporting pros can create a unique recipe of moves and motivational techniques just for you, which means you’re less likely to get bored. Prices range from $75 to $100 per session, depending on the gym and qualifications of the PTs, but the thought of having chiselled bodies and a taut waistline is enough to make us swipe our plastic without hesitation.
Below, we list the gyms and clubs in Singapore with top-notch personal training programmes…
With a prime location at Marina Bay, Pure Fitness is the go-to gym for many of us in the CBD. Achieve your #bodygoals with its team of highly qualified and dedicated personal trainers.

Aside from being a beautiful place to work out (it’s pretty important to enjoy your surrounds when you’re being beasted!) and in the oh-so-convenient location of Telok Ayer Street, Level has a great psychology when it comes to training. First of all, they keep it interesting, with a huge variety of original, high-end equipment that’s used to create a different, dynamic and fresh routine every time you visit – there’s not a running machine in sight! Plus, you’re encouraged to learn why you’re doing what you’re doing and how it works; and to complete the movements properly – think doing ten incredible dead lifts in your own time rather than 30 dodgy rushed ones. The trainers at Level are both very personable and specialise in different fitness techniques, whether you’re looking for boxing, weight-lifting, toning, cardio, or a bit of everything. It’s a nice, calming gym, with personal training only (and one – two classes a day that anyone can attend), so it never feels hectic or rushed (and there’s never a queue for the lovely facilities).
