Standing at a staggering height of 10 metres, the climbing wall at Virgin Active Marina One is the tallest of such facilities to be found in the Central Business District.
With automatic belaying lines that allow for a total of four climbers to make their ascent at any one time and varying levels of difficulty to vex even the most seasoned climber, the climbing wall adds an engaging and interactive element to a member’s workout.
First To Have A Relax And Recovery Zone

Virgin active is dedicated to creating a space that delivers fitness, wellness and lifestyle experience meeting the needs and wants of both avid gym-goers and busy executives looking to unwind.
First To Provide High Altitude Training
The first club to offer high altitude training in Singapore, Virgin Active provides their members with a studio which can stimulate conditions similar to exercising 3,000 metres above sea level.
This high-intensity training has been proven to improve the body’s cardiovascular and respiratory systems and increase the rate of fat burning in the human body.
First To Have Sleep Pods
Virgin Active is the first and only commercial and boutique gym that has integrated sleep pods into their studio space.
Designed specifically for napping, the contour of the “mattress” in these pads are in a zero-gravity position, which means less pressure off the cardiac system and more relaxed muscles.
Specially composed sleep music and programmed lights and vibrations are also included so members can completely shut down and relax.
First To Launch Group Exercise Rockstars
Virgin Active prides themselves on offering nothing but the best to all members, including innovative group exercise classes led by a dedicated group of highly qualified instructors, or as they are more commonly known as ‘Rockstars’.
This select group is trained to keep members motivated and deliver the most rewarding workout sessions be it HIIT, yoga, Pilates, dance or even cycling and Les Mills programmes.
First To Launch Les Mills The Trip
Launched for the first time in November 2017, THE TRIP is a fully immersive workout experience that combines a 40-minute multi-peak cycling workout with a journey through digitally created worlds.
With its cinema-scale screen and sound system, the immersive fitness workout takes motivation and energy output to the next level, burning up to 700 calories per class.
Well, what are waiting for people? Let’s start working out until the end of 2019!
