Circuit Training Focus is a specially designed low-intensity strength and balance training programme that is suited for seniors who are frail, clients in early stages of neurological conditions such as Parkinson, are recovering from stroke, or are newly discharged from physiotherapy and need a long-term maintenance programme.
Our experienced trainers will adapt the weight and intensity of each exercise to your ability. We will work closely with you to make gradual improvements in strength, mobility and flexibility. Functional tests will be done before and after each package to track your progress.
Circuit Training Focus uses gym machines with pneumatic (air pressure) technology that allows for weight increments of as little as 100g, to cater to frail seniors. The machines also allow for unilateral training to address muscle imbalances, and are equipped with a range of motion limiters for seniors with mobility issues.
Circuit Training Focus is suitable for you if you:
are frail and prefer a slower pace, smaller-class size of up to 3 participants, and a more personalised strengthening programme
have been discharged from physiotherapy, and want to maintain or improve your strength and fitness level
are in the early stages of neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, or recovering from a stroke, but are able to walk with a stable gait
prefer the ease of using gym machines (as compared to other fitness equipment such as dumbbells)
are unable to move from machine to machine independently
have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes, and are not on medication or treatment to control them
have any medical condition that may put you at risk when exercising
prefer a non-machine-based exercise, in which you may consider our Functional Strength Training
for 12 sessions (45 mins per session)
The package has a validity period of 18 weeks from the date of sign-up.
For NTUC Union members (applicable for first-timers only): 10% off

Place is very clean, gym is private and facing a garden. Trainer is very knowledgeable and caring, will teach how to use the machines properly so we don't sprain ourselves. Good that there is a trainer there at every session to help, can't wait to see progress!
Mr Faris M, client with NTUC Health's Circuit Training programme
I Iove this gym. It is so spacious and peaceful and the trainers attend to my needs. I have backache and knee pain. I started my second session already and I feel that my muscles are strengthening with the help of the trainer who corrects my posture.
Ms Serene Lim, client with NTUC Health's Circuit Training programme
The Circuit Training programme here is very useful. There are machines here that allow you to push yourself and work on the muscles. The trainers here are very good and motivate us to continue and not give up when we get a bit tired. They patiently explain and correct our postures when exercising. We get to meet new friends in class too!
Ms Helen Leong, client with NTUC Health's Circuit Training programme
I'd like to congratulate NTUC Health for running a very good Circuit Training programme. The trainers that my Mom and I met are professional and knowledgeable. They are patient and have very enviable attitudes and skills in communicating with seniors. Trainer Hana has a kind and caring nature to go with her sunny bubbly personality. She put to rest my worry that Circuit Training would be too tough for mother.

Our centres are equipped with gym equipment designed with the elderly in mind. Our HUR and FREI equipment use air and water pressure technology, and are gentle and safe on the muscles and joints. These machines are suitable for elderly who have not been exercising regularly, have poor balance or weak limbs.
The machines have built in smart technology that remembers the user’s preferences and will adjust the weights accordingly, with the use of a smart card. The machines can also be adjusted with the tap of a button, and the weights increase in 100g increments, making it very safe for the elderly
Sarcopenia, or age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength, can
lead to physical disability and loss of independence.
Studies have shown that we lose about 3%-8% muscle mass per decade after the age of 30 and the rate of loss increases after the age of 60. As muscle loss progresses, we may begin to reduce our physical activities, resulting in further loss of muscle strength and endurance and hence increase the risks of fall and fractures.
Therefore, resistance or weight-bearing exercises are important for us to strengthen our muscles and bones to prevent osteoporosis and sarcopenia, so that we can continue to be independent and active as we age.
We regret that our programmes are not eligible for government subsidies and discounts, and SkillsFuture credits. First-time sign ups by NTUC union members are entitled to a 10% discount off the package price.
They are welcome to wait for you at our seating areas while you attend our classes.
For our Circuit Training Focus programme, a limit of two persons per client may be present to assist you in moving from one machine to another should you require assistance.
