More than just IT stuff
Before the doors were opened to the public on Friday (28 June), swarms of people circled Funan, eager to be one of the first to see what is inside the sleek new mall. Over the close to three-year-long renovation, the space got a whole new makeover not just in design, but also in its branding identity. We used to visit Funan to get cheap new electronics and tech gadgets, but now, it’s also a place for so much more: retail shopping, working out, feasting on yummy food, enjoying the latest entertainment, and even learning more about plants. On top of all that, Funan is a great showcase of new and rising local brands. Many of the stores and amenities are also enhanced by smart features, making them worth a visit even if you have been to their other outlets.
With so many offerings and crowds to push through, it’s good to plan where to visit beforehand. To help you out with that, here is our list of places you should not miss at Funan:
1. TFX Funan (#03-21, #04-17 to 18)
The team behind True Fitness is taking your workouts to the extraordinary level with their flagship TFX fitness club at Funan. The equipment in the gym come from a range of brands specially curated according to which brand is best for the respective training and offers advanced functions to improve efficiency. Members can look forward to high-end smart equipment such as the Matrix Ultra Strength series and Life Fitness IC6 spinning bikes. Another tech highlight of the gym is its integration of Myzone, a heart-rate based system that lets you keep track of your training performance in real-time, on the various screens installed throughout the gym. All members will be given a Myzone MZ1 heart-rate monitor upon signup. We got to test it out ourselves at TFX, and it really helps to push us further and also remind us to slow down when we’re at our limit.
You won’t get bored at TFX, where you can also swim at an outdoor pool that looks out at Fort Canning, join a yoga or spin class, or many more small group training classes.
Membership at TFX Funan will start at $138 plus GST per month.
