Phase 2 continues to reopen and we list down activities that you can do to sweat it out.

Phase 2 reopening - Activities to sweat it out

So, Phase 2 has begun and if you have not seen the 'zombie invasion' happening in Singapore, maybe you shouldn't.

Literally on June 19, 00:00 Source

Almost everyone is out and about the streets again, and some even made it on the news.

Why would you do something like that?! While we start to see more activities resume, do remember that the battle with COVID-19 is not over. I repeat, it's not over.

But hey, we can start to do a little more than being cooped up at home, so why not engage in some healthier activities with your long-lost friends (okay it's really just 2 months)! Here's a friendly reminder of some of the activities you can start to arrange with your group of 5 friends to #keepfit again:

MAKE A TRIP TO CONEY ISLAND

Don't you miss seeing nature like this, I sure do. Source

It's time to gear up, and finally have that trekking or cycling activity that we've all been missing for the past 2 months.

If you've forgotten about how nature, sunsets and lalang fields look like after staring at your computer screens for way too long, take that break and head over to Punggol with your kakis, you may be pleasantly surprised at what you will find along the way, accompanied with company that you've missed!

Catch a nice, scenic view of the surroundings - and yes I took this photo :')

This article pretty much sums up all the activities you can do at this little quaint island, but remember to check NParks for the safe-distancing measures and capacity of the parks before heading down.

Other parks and beaches like Sentosa, East Coast Park, are some of the popular places too, but in my attempt to avoid the early invasion..somewhere a little more secluded might be better, for now :)

HIT THE STUDIOS AGAIN

With fitness and dance studios being able to finally reopen with safe distancing measures, I can't wait to finally go for a physical yoga and dance class! It's time to finally sweat it out and burn those CB fats.

BOOK A GYM OR POOL SLOT

Yes, if you have not heard the news, gyms and pools are open as well and it's finally time to get that dip in the pool after 2 months!

Are you as excited? Source

Using ActiveSG's app, you can now book a slot and head over to the swimming complex or get a gym spot! Time to take a breather at the pool and sweat (hmm) some calories in the pool, or lift those weights that you've so dearly missed.

Here are the current timings that all ActiveSG swimming complexes will be observing:

Lap swim for seniors only: 6.30am to 8.45am

Lap swim for general public: 6.30pm to 9.30pm

Organised classes: 9am to 6pm

More information on their website here. Do make sure you read up before booking a slot and keep safe distancing measures in mind.

Stay safe outside people. Source

As Singapore starts to open up and resume our activities, please do not take things for granted and adhere to the usual social distancing rules, we definitely don't want another repeat of Circuit Breaker, do we? :')
