Don't be fooled by the looks of Pilates. The workout may consist of low-impact exercises that don't require treadmills and kettlebells but it is undeniably tough (thanks, Joseph Pilates). Each exercise is designed to lengthen your muscles, tone your frame, and stretch every inch of your body, so expect your legs to shake and your abs to quiver at every twist and turn. All about control, this popular HIIT alternative also helps improve your metabolism, balance, and posture. And what better way to get started than these studios in Singapore that offer classical, mat and reformer Pilates classes, bringing you one step closer to becoming a lean, mean, fighting machine – sort of.

The super stylish studio is well-equipped for bespoke one-on-one and small group (maximum of five people for now) Pilates sessions. Its expertise extends to a range of conditions including injury rehabilitation, pain reduction, pre and post-natal Pilates, and posture and alignment.

For a post-workout treat, refuel with vegetarian snacks and light meals at Necessary Provisions, the in-house café. Then wash it all down with your choice of specialty coffee, tea, or organic wine.
