I usually go for spinning, body balance, hot yoga, and pilates classes here. it's very competitive, especially for some spinning classes, whereby booking a day in advance can only get you on waiting list. Or worse, the waiting list is maxed out.
True Fitness Tampines junction is a great place to workout. The gym is quite spacious and very well equipped. I am put of by overcrowded gyms but the volume of people in the gym during peak hours is still acceptable. The crowd consists mostly of serious gym users who know the basic gym etiquette. I love the ambience and music too. The pricing for private gyms is definitely way higher than what you would pay at SSC gyms. I personally find the amount i pay justified by the standard of service and the facilities. Most importantly, it serves as a kind of crowd control and 'user filter' where only serious gym goers are willing to pay the premium.
Walking distance from Tampines MRT;
BIG! Damn big! Occupies the whole floor. Equipment placement also well spaced out.
Even has a boxing ring!
Everything is new. Feel damn shiok!
Toilet also big. Lockers also big! (not sure about female's)
Has flat, incline, decline benches.
Free weight area is heavily cushioned. Estimated 2" rubber mat. drop weight no sound!
Being new, the rough part of the bar is damn sharp when griped or rest on chest (clean) or back (squat). Don't wear your new expensive T or singlets.
Can't find a plain simple pull-up bar. Only has all those fanciful handles grips at various angles. Want to do close-grip underhand chin-up also cannot.
The racking hooks of squat rack is too few and too widely spaced. Too tall for my height (175) if want to do low bar squat. If use the lower one then too low.
The racking hook is rubber coated. Bar won't spin when loaded. I've to change my habit as I usually grip the bar then duck under then rotate the bar slowly till my grip is comfortable.
Those unused plates hanging on the rack, tend to fall off easily when I rack the bar 'violently'.
