SURFSET on Lifetstyle Asia

SURFSET mention on Lifestyle Asia

Here’s another media mention to add to the list! Lifestyle Asia wrote about SURFSET Singapore as a way to get your adrenaline pumping.

SURFSET on Lifetstyle Asia

It’s an article about getting excited for new challenges and switching up an exercise routine, or as we like to say, shake up your workout! We’re not the only ones listed – there’s Katapult Trampoline Park, which sounds real bouncy, and Bodytec, which sounds electric. We gotta get our SURFSET Fitfam to go try these out one day!

About SURFSET, the article touches briefly about why SURFSET is great for you. We found this quote particularly interesting.

those that are concerned about developing a bulky build needn’t worry; as a result, members are long, lean and strong.

Thanks for noticing, Claire.

SURFSET on Mummyfique: why mums should try surfset

Mummyfique just ran a feature on SURFSET Fitness, and in particular, on our instructor Shuyi. Shuyi’s a new mum (not that new anymore, if you ask us), and we’ve all seen her fitness journey with SURFSET through pregnancy and into motherhood. She’s an inspiration to our SURFSET Fitfam, and it’s great to see her recognized by Mummy-centric publications like Mummyfique! Read more

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

Interview with Going Places Magazine

We recently gave an interview to Malaysia Airlines’ inflight magazine, Going Places. In it we spoke about SURFSET (of course), bringing SURFSET Fitness to Singapore, the benefits, and the types of classes. We thought it was a great way to cover some of the basic questions we frequently get from people, the press, and inquisitive bystanders. Here’s the full transcript.

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.
