Fans of fitness classes under the True Group can still burn those calories, albeit at lower-intensity versions of the classes so that it’s still safe to do with masks on. Modified versions of popular classes — including BodyCombat, BodyJam, BodyAttack, Zumba, Sh’bam and yoga — are taking place at True Group’s seven locations islandwide: True Fitness Harbourfront, TFX Millenia Walk, True Fitness ESR BizPark @ Chai Chee, True Fitness Tampines Junction, True Fitness Great World City, True Fitness Ang Mo Kio, and TFX Pacific Plaza.
Aside from mask-wearing at all times during class, other safe management measures employed include having members bring their own equipment for selected classes. There are also 45-min Bodyweight MobilityX classes offered to members who prefer to work out on the gym floor.
