Fitness clichés are a dime a dozen. Team work makes the dream work. Practice makes perfect. Slow and steady wins the race. Just do it.
But clichés are prevalent for a reason: they are in fact a reflection of reality. And the reality is that our fitness journeys truly are rife with life lessons just waiting to be discovered. When you strengthen yourself physically, you toughen yourself up emotionally as well, creating space for discipline, perseverance, audacity, and grit. The fulfillment you get after a good workout is more than just an endorphin rush—it’s also a sense of pride in taking care of yourself, and the confidence boost that comes from knowing you’re doing your body, mind, and spirit a favor by sweating out all the toxins, stress, and negative energy.
Sounds great in theory except you haven’t come across the workout you’re in love with yet, or are getting restless with your usual routine and looking to switch things up? Our Fitness Flash Sale is the perfect avenue to explore different kinds of workouts to find the one that suits you best. Dip your toes into everything from yoga to boxing to barre, pilates to dance, crossfit to martial arts. Not only will you see what’s out there, you’ll also gain a deeper appreciation of what you’re good at, allowing you to eventually commit to the perfect workout for you.
Ready to get the ball rolling? Here are all the life lessons you can learn from trying these various workouts—all of which you can score at a steal for a limited time only.
Find grace under pressure.
Long-time crowd favorite barre3, a functional workout that combines movements from ballet, yoga, and pilates, is popular among all ages and personalities for a reason: it teaches you to be graceful (and to smile and enjoy the journey!) even when you feel like giving up.
Persist until the punches land.
Sharpen your reflexes and learn how to put the power in your punches at Elorde Boxing Gym, where a one-on-one boxing session develops your fortitude and perseverance. New to the ring? Don’t worry—your punches won’t always land but when they do, it’s going to feel pretty awesome.
Don’t forget to breathe.
Yoga isn’t just about flexibility and fancy poses. It’s about letting your breath guide your movements, allowing you to center yourself and be truly in the moment. Jumpstart your practice at Urban Ashram Yoga, and be on your way to total mind-body wellness.
Challenge yourself every day.
Daily exercise tends to get monotonous quickly, but not at F45 Training, where you can do a different workout every day for 45 minutes. Feel yourself becoming physically stronger with every lift, pull, and squat, and gain confidence with the help of the friendly coaches and the camaraderie they foster.
Small moves make a big difference.

Just have fun!

Focus on what you CAN do.
Yoga can be challenging and sometimes even frustrating, but when you celebrate your small wins—such as simply showing up and taking time out for yourself—and improve at your own pace, it becomes more rewarding than overwhelming. Beyond Yoga allows you to deepen your practice and get better on and off the mat.
Keep going—you’ll thank yourself later.
Pain is temporary, and although a class at Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio definitely isn’t a walk in the park, it’ll all be worth it as you boost your flexibility, coordination, balance, and control, and discover a stronger, braver you.
