new venue: field assembly is branching out
Field Assembly is expanding after three years in the business, and has opened a new branch in Holland Village. Unlike the Clarke Quay outlet that offers a variety of classes ranging from HIIT to Muay Thai, classes at Field Assembly Holland Village will focus mainly on Brazilian jiu-jitsu. To accommodate sessions that involve wrestling and grappling, the training space is kept free of equipment. It takes its design cues from Tadao Ando’s Casa Wabi, and offers a similar zen aesthetic that helps students attain their inner stillness. The cosy feel also helps first-timers feel less intimidated.
Field Assembly HV is located at 17B Lorong Liput, level 3, Singapore 277731
New workout tunes: Stay on the beat with Adidas
Adidas recently launched two new sports headphones in collaboration with audio tech brand Zound Industries. The concept is nothing new to the market, but the products are a welcomed addition for their convenience, ease of use and passable sound quality. The stylish designs certainly don’t hurt too. Between the on-ear Rpt-01 and in-ear Fwd-01, we prefer the latter, only because it doesn’t give us headaches that headband designs often do. It also helps that the knitted fabric cord is made tangle-free, making it less of a hassle to undo when we pull it out of our pockets.
New class: Overcome obstacles with TFX
TerraX is an obstacle race training zone located at TFX Millenia Walk. The outfit lets you attempt things like rope climbs, wall jumps and tire flips, all to get yourself Spartan Race ready. We advise beginners to start with TerraX TechniX classes to build a foundation before giving the more physically demanding BlazeX a shot. If you prefer personal attention to pre-planned small group classes, look up Yusuf Kay – the gym’s head coach offers personal classes tailored for the individual’s fitness level.
TerraX is available at TFX Millenia Walk.
New boost: Go natural with BeSmoothies
It’s true that whey protein ranks high in biological value. Whey supplements often contain synthetic ingredients like artificial flavouring and fillers though. Enter BeSmoothies. The protein supplement’s ingredients are all-natural and features chicken breast meat to help your body recover from workouts. Why this choice though? “While both chicken meat and whey are rich sources of macronutrients, chicken meat stands out because of its micronutrient content. Minerals and vitamins including niacin, selenium and thiamine are present naturally in chicken but not in whey,” shared the brand’s founder Brian Chia. Don’t baulk at the idea of having meat in a smoothie before you even give it a chance. Chia blends his smoothies with fresh fruits and yoghurt for an all-rounded treat. “It also helps that the fruits provide fibre and naturally enhance nutrient content,” he said.
