Sports Hub Community Play Day!

We were at the Sports Hub Community Play Day over the last weekend! Did you see us?

No worries if you didnt, you can look here:

 

What’s this Play Day?

Sports Hub Community Play Days are quarterly events held around Singapore Sports Hub’s venues. Organised by Singapore Sports Hub, it aims to bring together the community and families through sports and other lifestyle experiences.

SURFSET Fitness was at the 6th edition, held at the stadium, no less! It was an action packed series, looking near and far for a Sports Hub Super Warrior!

In case you can’t see us, we were here!

It was an event jam packed with a whole bunch of activities. There was mass Zumba in the morning, followed by a bunch of challenges. There was an obstacle course, bubble soccer (that one where people are running around in fully inflated balls),  archery play, and a basketball clinic. In the afternoon, there was a meet and greet with our basketball team the Singapore Slingers, and of course, a mass POUND session!

For the kids, there were a whole lot of inflatable activities, including a free-fall Tarzan fall which looked a little scary, even to us adults.

Of course, we had our SURFSET sessions running throughout!

What went on?

It was a full day of meeting super warriors and challenging them on the boards, basically!

We had our resident instructor Shuyi taking on short classes in the few time slots that we had, which were grossly overbooked. Joining Shuyi were our other instructors Steph and Wany, and guest stars Jasmine Danker, Aryn, Weihan, and Avery!

We ran short classes for the young and old with the signature surf moves, shark kicks, and wave runners. In between classes, we also had fun doing some acroyoga moves on the board.

How was it?

Generally, keeping people active and fit is the goal, and it was great being out and about with Singapore Sports Hub to have people come on up and give our boards a try!

To see what went on, take a look at our photos!

Happy faces! Big smiles after the incredible acro yoga session!

ACROVINYASA Acroyoga Workshop with Sara Wee and Rachel Ng

Our friends from The Yoga Mandala came by for our first ever Acroyoga ACROVINYASA Workshop! Leading the class was Sara Wee and Rachel Ng, who led us from solo vinyasas, to (erm) team-bonding activities, and finally with partner inversions and acroyoga. A happy group of 15 SURFSET regulars turned up to get stacked and get jacked.

Sara did promise that things may get chaotic during the session, and boy it did. Lots of triumphant high-fives, spotters rushing to catch a fall, nervous laughter, flat-out laughter, and the occasional scream. Needless to say, we all had great fun. Shuyi had the foresight to get her husband help film a short video for the enjoyment of everyone. Here it goes!

We’re hitting the beach! Again! This time we’ll be out at East Coast Park for an upcoming event, Paddles on WaVe. Are you ready for a relaxing day chilling by the beach? You could be having fun with stand up paddling, ZORB balls, and SURFSET Fitness! Okay, maybe replace the “chilling” with “sweating”. That’s how we like it too!

Paddles on WaVe

Paddles on WaVe is a one-day-only, fun-filled event organized by PA Water-Venture, where you get to try out six different lifestyle beach sports at a price of only $5.

“$5?! That’s like half the price of a plate of pasta!”

SURFSET at Asia Xpedition 2016, Suntec

Mummy! It’s over!

Once again we brought our boards out-and-about, this time to a big exhibition hall in Suntec Exhibition and Convention Centre. We were there for Asia Xpedition, a sports and travel fair focusing on adventure. We thought it was a great way to do many activities in one day – at the fair you could do archery, climb a rock wall, bounce on a trampoline, pole dance, ride on a bmx bike, and shoot rubber balls out a paintball gun. Awesome? You bet.

Of course, you could also hop on our boards and start sweating!

We got a pretty big booth at the event, with enough space for five boards, and a little stage for the instructor board so that we could hold classes. We also made a nice little backdrop with our logo so people would know who we are, and take photos in all sorts of cool poses. It looked like this: Read more
