Best sports council gym I’ve been to was the Tampines SSC gym. No bumper plates, but oly lifting is usually accepted (only one PT has given me shit thus far). Your usual machines, nothing too fancy. A squat cage, incline and flat bench, Db’s up to 26kg, or around 57lbs. I hear good things about the one in Jurong West as well.
The SSC gyms won’t hold a candle to the Cali fitness ones, but they’re much cheaper, S$2.50 per entry. Beware though, they don’t qualify as ‘REAL’ gyms, but some of them can be pretty accommodating.
I usually train at my college’s gym (the NIE sports school gym on the NTU campus). It’s technically for students and staff, but anyone can use it really. If you’re living in the area, you could check it out, though it is ‘out of the way’ being on a college campus.
They have 5 Oly bars, shitload of plates, one set of bumper plates, DBs up to 30kg, 66lbs, power cage, incline and flat benches, cables and the usual machines. Usually enough space to get a pretty good workout, and no PTs or staff on duty.
Thanks for the reply, T-Nation didn’t notify me of any replies so just read them now. I google mapped all of the gym you linked me, unfortunately quite a lot of them are a bit out for me (staying off mohammed sultan rd). The Delta ClubFITT gym is less than 10 minutes away so I might give that a bash at somepoint. Any idea on what it’s like? I presume it’s similar to the other ClubFITT gyms in terms of equipment?
