We had lots of fun by the sea with you guys! A big thank you for all of you who turned up and gave our boards a go. Here are some snippets of what went down on Sunday during the Paddles on Wave event:
Bonus points if you caught sight of the girl chasing her runaway skateboard in the background!
People’s Association (PA) is organizing its 2018 Paddles on WaVe event, and SURFSET Singapore is going to be there!
We were actually part of the line-up two years ago, remember? No? See what went on at PA Paddles on WaVe 2016.
Paddles on WaVe
Paddles on WaVe is a one-day event with lots of sand-and-sea fun, described as “a combination of water and beach lifestyle sport carnival”. To be specific, it’s PA Water-Venture East Coast who’s organizing this event.
Activities include Kayaking, Stand-up Paddling, Windsurfing, Beach yoga, and of course SURFSET Fitness. Read more
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!
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!
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.
Yep, we’re all sunburnt from being out in the sun the whole day. We had a great time with all of you guys out by the beach on Sunday! In fact, we had so much fun we had a video made to remember the day! See how much fun we all had, watching airplanes and getting fit.
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!”
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
Once again, SURFSET Fitness goes out-and-about. This time, we’re bringing the surf to Asia Xpedition at Suntec City!
Asia Xpedition is a sports and travel fair focusing on adventure. Yep, sounds about right! Our surf-inspired fitness classes has always been a big hit with the adventurous types, looking to break past plateaus and to step out of their comfort zones and stable grounds. We’re part of a line up of exciting activities that include rock climbing, wind-surfing simulation, and BMX biking!
SURFSET Fitness got out and about again! This time, it’s not the laid-back beach vibes with bikinis; instead, we got busy at Orchard road!
As part of their regular editions of The Gallery Experience, Mandarin Gallery hosted a fitness event called Featherlight, which is a weekend of fitness sessions with a musical theme. See our previous post for more information on the event and what it’s about.
They call it a light-hearted fitness marathon weekend. A marathon, indeed, but only if you had signed up for every single session. We had SURFSET taking the head- and tail-ends of the days, with morning sessions at 10.00 am and evening sessions at 5.30 pm. Read more
We’re excited to be part of an upcoming event at Orchard! We’ll be bringing our SURFSET boards down to the Mandarin Gallery at 333 Orchard Road over the coming weekend. Are you ready for some SURFSET action with our California Dream theme?
Here are some details on the event, as can be found on the Mandarin Gallery Facebook Event Page:
Featherlight: A light-hearted fitness marathon weekend

This event is over! Check back soon for new burns!
For fitness and nutrition, we always preach the keyword – moderation. However, some days it’s good to turn things up a notch and bring things into the extreme.
That’s exactly what we’re going for on the 26th of December, 2015 – BACK TO BACK BURNS! It’s a promotional day where we will run two full-session classes back to back, starting with Balance for 45 minutes, and continuing with Core or Sweat for another 45 minutes! Here’s the deal: this will only count as a single session in your package.
It’ll be the day after Christmas, so it’s going to be perfect for burning off all that Christmas eating and drinking revelry. A superb way to get yourself into shape for making New Year’s resolutions, if you ask us.
We came, we saw, we did yoga poses on our boards. It was an absolutely fantastic day with the haze in remission and the sun nice and bright on the beach. Soulscape 2015 was held early today, and it was early today when we dragged our boards over to Tanjong Beach at Sentosa to join in the fun and festivities of this yoga event.
It’s not our first time at Soulscape. We were also here for Soulscape 2014 and we had a great time, so, we thought, let’s do it again!
It’s the new, 2015 version of our favourite Yoga event! Favourite because it’s at the beach, and also because we had such a blast at Soulscape 2014 last year! After having such a great time last year, we couldn’t say no to bringing our SURFSET Fitness boards down to Sentosa again this year.
This year’s event features an even wider line up of yoga names, or Tribal Leaders as they like to call it. There’s Cristi Christensen, Daniel Rojas, Amanda Koh, Theresa Shan, just to name a few. Expect music and sound from prominent names like DJ Doopz and Clara Chua. And it’s not just a yoga event – there will be plenty of other activities such as healing, dance, and of course, SURFSET! We’re listed in the page – see here!
Once again, we’ll be having a set of challenge yoga poses for you to attempt on our board – they range from the simple tree pose to the harder crow pose. We’ll be with you, so fret not if you can’t find your footing – it’s harder on the board. But not impossible, as our instructor Shuyi proves:
Yep, looks like she’s flying, just like a graceful crow. Read more
Had a great time with our Lorna Jane Fit Challengers! As part of the LJ Fit Challenge, SURFSET Fitness Singapore gamely hosted a challenge class for some LJ Fit ladies.
The LJ Fit Challenge is all about embracing active living. We thought – we’re pretty much proponents of that too! Working with activewear brands has always been intuitive for us, because while it’s important to be comfortable in our own skins, we also believe in the importance of being comfortable in our own clothes.

This event is over. To see what went on during the event, check our event post.
The earthquake that hit Nepal on the 25th of April was a tragic event that left countless people dead and injured, with hundreds of thousands more displaced from their homes without access to food, water, and shelter. Thousands of people and organizations worldwide have stepped up to contribute to relief efforts, and it is heartening to see the millions of people globally trying to help.
A small group of people in the fitness industry in Singapore has also come together to organize a charity event aiming to contribute to the Nepal Earthquake relief efforts.
#SweatForNepal is the charity event upcoming on the 3rd of May 2015, hoping to unify fitness to reach out to the relief efforts and aid the victims of the earthquake.
Starting at 8.30 a.m and running through to 1.00 p.m, fitness classes will be conducted at the 100 Plus Promenade at Singapore Sports Hub. Read more
