Perhaps the hardest part of working out isn’t pushing your limits or that inconsolable ache after — it’s showing up at the gym. For majority of the working population in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore, the lack of gyms is hardly an excuse — the vibrant mix of boutique and franchised outlets make it one of the best areas on the island to get your adrenaline fix.

What people want besides choice, however, is convenience and that’s where choosing the right gym can be paramount in the success of your fitness journey. Franchised gyms might be great for keeping your overall wellness in check, but if you want a targetted, distraction-free option, these boutique gyms in the CDB are your best bet.

Convenient and packed with options for quick workouts, boutique gyms have found a way to provide focused classes during lunch times so you hit your targets without having to juggle cumbersome exercise equipment nor rush through your meal after. The benefits of working out during this golden hour are also plenty. For one, you’ll free up your night, and you’ll be less inclined to stuff your face with food during lunch.

If you’re willing to give up a few minutes of your working day for a better body, here are six boutique gyms in Singapore’s CBD that will help you immensely with your cause.
