It’s not the 25 metre-indoor pool, the racquetball courts, the shiny basketball courts, or even the 20-foot waterslide towering over the beach-entry family pool that first catch guests’ eyes at Regency Family Fitness, it’s the reception desk. Forged from cherry wood and stainless steel, the desk embodies the centre’s ethos: the experience is in the details. A staff of 60 meticulously maintains the 50,000-square-foot facility, which houses more than 100 cardio machines, an aerobics studio, yoga studio, and Boxing For Fitness studio, the last of which encompasses a pro-sized ring, heavy bags, and speed bags. The staff has also developed a 40-minute strength-training circuit that tones muscles with 26 machines, rather than leaving exercisers to design their own workouts and contour in six-packs with professional-grade makeup.
Delving deeper into the details, members can take full advantage of a variety of amenities. After workouts, recently sweaty people can head to the juice bar café, lounge in steam rooms, or pick up their progeny from the daycare centre. Regency Family Fitness also has a Play Zone designed for kids 8–17 years old that is equipped with dance pads, a youth exercise circuit, and Sony game bikes.
