1. Kreta Ayer Fitness Corner


Within a short walk from FITLUC, this simple fitness corner tucked into the corner of Kreta Ayer Road will assist you in building coordination. These exercise machines may not look very sophisticated, but they can help you boost your mind-muscle connection! Using the turntables, you can practice coordination by moving in alternating directions. The benches can double up as a support to perform body-weight dips. Furthermore, The Social Space is right behind for a post-workout refuel!

2. Chinatown Hawker Centre Fitness Corner


Taking a farther stroll deeper towards Chinatown, the Chinatown Hawker Centre has a scenic rooftop featuring a basketball court, a tennis court, and of course, a workout area. This fitness corner is excellent for you to train your muscular strength and target specific muscle groups.

Beef up your chest muscles by doing dips on the parallel bars, seated chest press, and push-ups. To target your upper and lower chest, use the benches for incline and declined positions respectively.

Now to work on your lats to get that nice large V-shape on your back, the pull-up bars and body-weighted lat pulldown activate the latissimus dorsi muscles when done with proper form.


To complete the Baywatch body, hit the abs through core exercises. The parallel bars and pullup bars are excellent to execute different variations of leg raises. Simple and easy sit-ups could be done on the sit-up bench.


BONUS: Re-live your childhood days and engage your core and arms by going back and forth on the monkey bars!

3. Duxton Fitness Corner


On the opposite end of Chinatown, take a 5 minutes walk and you’ll reach the sleek exercise grounds of Duxton! Other than the aforementioned exercises, Duxton has its own unique quirks. On the logs machine, many different muscle groups can be targeted from workout variations. The chest, shoulders, and triceps, can be trained by doing land mine press, shoulder press, and triceps extensions.

Bring along a filled water bottle and some resistance bands and you’re all set for metabolic circuits and HIIT! Burpees, sprints, lunges, and squats are some of our recommended exercises to try at this luscious grass patch. Reconnect with nature and relax on the luscious grass patch after a drilling session!


Following the trail down, more atypical machines can be spotted. These machines are tagged along with a simple operating guide. However, always ensure the correct form is used to prevent any injuries. Be sure to do some dynamic stretches to prepare your muscles for action!

Venturing deeper into the site, more machines can be spotted. The typical tools mentioned at the previous sites are available here too for the same workouts. The site still remains exemplary with uncommon equipment. If you’re an army boy or ever wondered what Singaporean sons will/have gone through, give a shot at the low rope!

Lastly, finish off your workout with a slow jog around the 150m track!

The Tanjong Pagar Fitness Corner located at Yan Kit Road is without a doubt our favourite exercise grounds in the vicinity of FITLUC. The myriad of machines that can be utilised interchangeably to best suit the workout you are going for is something that is not readily available at most places. Hit a great workout, sweat it out, and relax on the soft natural grass patch.
