From a pair of running shoes to a super-absorbent sports bra, you don't have to break the bank to keep fit
Dubbed as the world's most expensive city to live in for the fifth year running, Singapore may pose numerous challenges when it comes to allocating a portion of one's already expensive lifestyle to physical fitness. Therefore, you'll need to be resourceful, starting by opting for home cooked meals over pricier poke bowls and sussing out cheaper or even free fitness activities to get active again.
But of course, you'll need to be armed with cool sporting gear before you begin your fitness endeavour. So here are some places you can keep under your radar for serious sports shopping at a bargain!
6. Basement 1 of VivoCity
No longer just known as a mall linked to Sentosa, VivoCity recently launched an expansion of its basement 1 stores which offers a stimulating blend of athleisure and lifestyle shops. The retail space houses Singapore’s first ever FILA and New Era store, together with, the Adidas stadium concept and Originals flagship store. While sports lovers will drool over the 400 sq metre Nike store that has a fuller range of products, sneakerheads will celebrate the opening of another L.E Underground that will feature shoes exclusive to its VivoCity abode.
