This is an update post for 2017
There were multiple cases in the past couple of years on gyms and spas closing leaving members who had paid upfront fees in a ditch. I feel a little insecure when committing to large sums of money paid upfront. As my parents would say, “钱不容易赚”, which translates to, “it is not easy to earn money.”
Hence, I’ve been an advocate for fitness subscriptions like Guavapass and Kfit for the past couple of years. They offer the flexibility of month-on-month payments and extremely wide range of classes from member studios.
What is a fitness subscription?
- Basically, it is a fitness membership on an app with a concept very similar to The Entertainer App. You pay an X amount of money per month to access classes by its member studios
- There are two dominant players in Singapore: Guavapass and KFit.
What are their differences?
|Class limit||Unlimited||10 classes|
|Max class per studio||3 usually||1-5|
|Max active reservations||4||4|
|Late class cancellations||$15||$15|

* In case the referral link for KFit does not work, simply key in the promo code. There have been technical issues with regards to the referral link.
Referrals and promotions
Just like any subscription that survives on sales, referrals are important.
GuavaPass: Each new member gets $40 off their first month with a referral code.
My GuavaPass referral link: https://goo.gl/Zo3tpd
My GuavaPass promo code: WvrXtCrUgw3NhMW
KFit: Every new member gets $5 off first purchase. Please key in the promo code if the referral link does not work, there have been technical issues before but keying in the promo code will work.
My KFit promo code / referral link is: JVBGZ
P.S. Drop me a note at hello (at) meowsyy.c0m if you’ll like to find out more about the exact discount as referrals tend to change very frequently.
