Picture this: A four-storey heritage shophouse where you can attend fitness and yoga classes, go for a physiotherapy appointment, enjoy a healthy meal, and even see a therapist—all in a day’s work. Located on Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar Road, Trapeze Rec Club is a soon-to-open wellness concept slated to be unveiled in the middle of this year.
The brainchild of entrepreneur GJ Wee, who wanted to fill the gap for a “one-stop shop” of holistic options in the wellness sector, this club will cater to members’ physical and mental wellbeing. While the 8,000 square-feet space is currently being renovated, it will eventually be home to fitness and yoga studios, a reflexology lounge, a health food café, as well as an outdoor sauna and cold plunge pool. Visitors can also expect physiotherapy, mental health services, and a Traditional Chinese Medicine counter.
Designed by the award-winning Parable Studio, the club is a natural light-filled space featuring wood and cement textures, as well as neutral, soothing hues. According to Wee, the club is said to be partly inspired by the holistic wellness clubs in major cities such as Sydney, London, and New York.
Most significantly, the club hopes to de-stigmatise mental healthcare by integrating fitness classes and therapy sessions by making both accessible in a comfortable place.
Ahead of its highly anticipated opening, we checked out its namesake online store, which purveys a wide range of wellness-related offerings. There are mindfulness journals, fitness equipment like smart ropes, bath salts, incense kits, superfoods, and more.
When the club launches, prices will likely range between $100 to $400 a month depending on the services that patrons sign up for.
