Just a little information  about World Heart Day; It is celebrated  every year across the world to bring attention  and fight against heart diseases and strokes, the leading cause of death worldwide! This year, it falls on the 29th September 2017.

 

Here’s a list of things you can do to celebrate the week of World Heart Day. Or even better, make it a daily routine instead!

1) Go for a swim! <3

Swimming is one of the many exercises to help prevent heart diseases.  With just a minimum of 30 minutes, three times a week, it’ll help to lower you blood pressure/ Swimming also aids in maintaining you blood cholesterol level.

Jump into any of our swimming pools at our clubhouses ( Bukit Batok, Sembawang and Balestier) and swim away!

Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday: 8am – 9.30pm

*Tuesdays:  10am – 9.30pm

2) Breathe in, Breathe out <3

Any form of physical exercise that encourages you to breathe in and out deeply will assist you in promoting blood flow and lower your blood levels. Aerobic classes are common exercise that people take up to prevent or cope with heart diseases physically.

If you love to move alone to the beat and groove, you can consider aerobic classes such as Zumba and Line Dancing.

If you want something more relaxed and calming and slow then you may want to look at yoga or pilates classes.

Sign up for a class and bring a friend along! The classes mentioned above are available at our clubhouses (Bukit Batok & Balestier).
