Fitness First at Fusionopolis

Love the Fitness First Gym at Fusionopolis! As you can see from the pictures below, the pool looks so cool! It’s pretty big too and it was TOTALLY empty when I was there on a weekday. Unlike the other Fitness First swimming pools where people working in nearby offices can perv on you, there is no worry of that here. Actually, I kind of got a little anxious thinking what if I develop a cramp or something. No one would even know, but I suppose there are some security cameras somewhere although I couldn’t spot any. I love how the building designers have made the roof so artistic, kind of looks like a roof a stadium? That’s perhaps why the pool is green and not the usual blue, to mimic a football pitch? The best thing about this Fitness First pool for families is that there is a kids wading pool as well. Oh this would be the best Fitness First gym to sunbathe. Direct sunlight with very little shade, not that I advocate sunbathing.

Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck

More pictures of the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck as well as what was observed. Smile

Notice my mother is a distance away from the edge of the observation deck. And notice that I am even further from the edge. Actually the part I am standing on is already protruding out of the 3rd tower, but this is how the mind plays tricks. It is super windy up here, which adds to the amazing feeling. Try not to wear loose caps or you probably won’t see it again.

Pathway leading to the pool. Isn’t it crazy that this picture was taken 57 floors above ground, when it looks just like a normal park, trees and all?

The mandatory souvenir shop, so you don’t leave empty handed. Ku De Ta’s just above the shop.

Those shades hide the swimmers from view, but really, you just have to poke your head between those shades to enjoy the visual feast.

Now you’ve seen many photos of the iconic 3 towered Marina Bay Sands. Have you seen the SHADOW of Marina Bay Sands? That construction going on down below is the new Gardens by the Bay. Really looking forward to its opening. And those clam shell structures will be the climate controlled greenhouses. It seems they will be planting and showcasing plants from temperate countries in there.

If you’ve been to temperate countries like NZ and UK, they have climate controlled greenhouses to replicate a tropical rainforest climate, horrid humidity and all. I suppose people living in cold countries may be curious to know how it feels like to be in the tropics, but really, I much rather visit a cold greenhouse rather than a hot one!

You can literally “see” how windy it is. Singapore looks so flat from up here. There is a little lump of a mountain right at the very eastern end of Singapore. It looks like it is in Singapore, but I don’t think so.

Can you see the huge bit of land that is forested on both sides and totally cleared in the middle? I wonder if that is the Paya Lebar Airbase. I had no idea it was that huge and taking up so much space.

Did you know the Floating Platform has been transformed into a football pitch? It kind of looks very cartoony from up here.

Marina Bay Sands Infinity Swimming Pool

I think anyone who has seen the Marina Bay Sands Swimming Pool will surely agree that it must be one of the most beautiful looking hotel pools in the world! It’s quite long, which is really good for serious swimmers, although I think most people will be here just to gawk at the scenery. Many other older hotels have really tiny and unshapely pools, which is a pity. I think there is a trend nowadays for hotels to make a statement for themselves via the design of their pools.

Then there’s the red deckchairs, which make for good contrast in photos. This must be like one of the best places to sun tan, cuz there’s no other tall building to block the sun’s rays. Just don’t book a stay here on one of Singapore’s public holidays, or you’ll be wading in a sea of people.

The use of the swimming pool facility is only available for hotel guests from 6am – 10pm, although visitors are obviously able to view a portion of it. Visitors can only access the SkyPark from 10am onwards, so shy swimmers should try to make use of the magic hours between 6am – 10am to have their swim if they don’t want their every move scrutinised. And I can tell you, there will be photographs galore. There is no way anyone with a camera or iPhone would leave without snapping some pictures of the pool.

These photos were taken at 3pm on a Friday afternoon.

Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

Did you know the infinity swimming pool is 150-meters long and is the world’s largest outdoor pool at that height?

I like how they’ve thought of everything by putting out the flat beds for people to sun tan in.

I personally find that it’s usually to bright to read out in the open like this even though it’s such a relaxing idea to do so.

This photo makes me feel like the city is just a step away.

Fitness First at MapleTree Business City

After having perved at the Fitness First Swimming pool for nearly 2 months, from my vantage point at my new office, I am proud to say that I’ve taken the plunge! Literally and figuratively! This is the longest pool I have ever been to that is not owned by some sports association or one of the public Olympic sized pools.

It was great to be able to get from my office to the pool in less than 5 minutes. I got to Fitness First easily enough. After getting into your swim gear, one has to walk from the changing rooms, pass half the gym AND past the reception area before reaching the pool. It was a bit weird, but luckily no one stared. Of course I had my towel, but then I was also barefoot.

The pool was totally empty when I got there at 6pm although 2 other people joined me in the time that I was there. The pool is heated, which is something I don’t like. When I first got in, it was quite nice because it felt quite warm, but no where near as hot as a Jacuzzi. But within a minute, I got used to the heat and it felt as if I were swimming in a pool of luke warm water. Not a very pleasant feeling I can tell you. I wonder if Fitness First will take to my suggestion to turn off the darn heater. It’s not snowing in Singapore, we don’t need heated pools! The water apparently is heated using excess heat produced by the air-conditioning of the gym, which makes it very eco-friendly. Now this is something that I personally feel sounds great on paper but is terrible in reality.

ANYWAY, the swim itself was good. It was great that the pool was long so I could do laps in peace without having to turn around that often.

Shall comment more on the gym equipment at a later date!
