Our 20th club, Fitness First Platinum Paya Lebar, sparked off much excitement and fresh conversations in the fitness landscape of the East with its notable debut on 1st August 2018.

All normal cancellation process remains the same; simply visit one of convenient locations to complete a 30-day cancellation notice.
4. Why does Fitness First have annual price increases?
Quite simply, the cost of running the business increases yearly and we have to pass on a portion of the costs in order to continue providing you with our convenient, friendly, and well maintained locations. It is worth noting that our last price rise was in 2015. Since then we have opened two new clubs in 321 Clementi and Bugis Junction. We’ve also had major refurbishment and rebranding of a club for Capital Tower Sports Performance. In additional to all the club launches there have also made regular upgrades to our clubs such as Paragon, One George Street, Tampines and much more. All these activities which we have shared on our communication platforms amounts to about 7.6 million and as the maintenance costs rises we start our price only in 2017.
5. Can I request to delay the price rise?
The price rise is standardised for every member effective from September 2017. If you’re outside any membership contract, the price rise will take effect immediately in September. If you are still within your minimum commitment period, your price rise will take effect from the first month after your minimum commitment period is fulfilled.
6. I intend to transfer my membership to my spouse. Will he/she be affected by the price rise as she is new to Fitness First?
As this is a membership transfer, not a new-join-member, the current status of the membership will this be in place. For example, if your membership still in membership contractual period your spouse will not be effected the price rise until the contract expires. However if your membership is outside any contractual period, your spouse will be included by the price rise.
