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!

Upcoming Event – Acrovinyasa Workshop 29 Apr 2017

Event over!

This event is over! To see what went on during the event, check our event post!

Looks like all that thinking from Shuyi’s last Acroyoga session has materialized into something more. We’re super excited to announce our first ever Acroyoga Workshop! It’ll be held on 29 Apr 2017, a Saturday, and based on Acrovinyasa – a variant which unites elements from acroyoga and vinyasa flows. It’ll be conducted by Acrovinyasa certified instructors Sara Wee and Rachel Ng from The Yoga Mandala.

Acroyoga Sara Shuyi

SURFSET’s first experience with Acroyoga

Acroyoga is a sort of yoga abomination – we say that because we’re so used to having the peaceful, dependable earth beneath our bodies for regular yoga. Acroyoga? You throw that out the window, and opt to have a flimsy human below you instead. What? Why?

Wait – that’s pretty much the whole concept of SURFSET, isn’t it – except you switch out flimsy human to unstable surfboard? That probably explains it: firstly, it’s a challenge. Also, there’s the whole notion of trust with another person. Thirdly, there is an undeniable appeal to having some acro yoga shots in your Instagram. Just check these out –

Nothing says "I love you" quite like trusting a person with your life. #Acro #TYMafia #AcroYoga #SaraDoesAcro

January 2017 challenge poses

SURFSET Challenge poses January 2017

Happy 2017! Last year was a great one for us, and we’re thankful for all the support and love we’ve been given by all of you! Now, on to better things this year – and by better things, we mean challenges!

We think January is a great way to kick off the year, with the first official working day on the 3rd; the fewer working days (18 by some counts); and of course, Chinese new year! In between all these revelry, we do hope you give us some time and attention to get on board with us!

This month, we’ve got our cover girl, Hot Momma, demonstrating the challenge poses. She’s also the one drawing up these cute stick figures! (What can we say? She’s multi-talented.)

SURFSET Challenge poses October 2016

It’s October! It’s officially the month of Autumn (sadly, not in Singapore), Deepavali (on a Saturday?!), and Halloween (only at month-end!).

Everyone had fun last month with our challenge poses, especially with all the teaming up in Warrior partner poses. This month, we’ve included another partner pose for getting all snuggly with a chum.

Everybody gets extra points for doing challenge poses in scary costumes! OK, sexy also can la.
