    I really like this outlet... The facilities are so new and the crowd is so different though I find the lonely 2 lifts that bring me up to the floor is soo slow and seemed to take ages to get up to the top floor where this outlet of the california fitness resides.

    Though I find it smaller than the other outlets, they do have 2 halls whereby 2 classes can be held concurrently. The treadmills and other cardio machines are aplenty and best of all.... while you do your thing on the treadmill during the weekends, no one will bother you. I really hate it... Look I'm panting, I'm trying to catch my breath while attempting to break my record on the 10Km run with sweat dripping and heavy footsteps thumping, one of the personal trainers come along and try to hitch up a casual chat with you with an opening questions like " HI... How are you doing?" All I could do.. is to ignore him and wonder if his brains grow on his biceps... However my previous few visits, I don't have this problem... everybody's just doing their own things...

    I do not see many stretching machines or equipment available however they do have some free weights chairs for you to do casual training. They have these really interesting spaces that are near to the window just in front of the treadmill which I find crampy at first yet so interesting.. There are members who bring their mats and do stretching at this areas... You have the privacy as few will walk around that area, its crampy yet so safe and you get a beautiful city view from the glass windows.

    I must also mention the changing room... Its NICE.... The lockers are new with benches for you to seat and ample hair dryers at a few location, so you need not all huddle at one dressing island table. They also do provide tissue, cotton buds and cotton squares. The shower area is fabulous.. I love the floor tiles as they are comfy not sandy and not slippery even when wet. The drainage system for the shower rooms are outside the curtain as such you don't see the water flowing while you shower and it looked very seemless. The sauna and steambath is also powerful, quiet and clean...

    This is a fantastic outlet... if you haven't been... this is the one you must visit...

      Newest branch of the gym and the facilities look that way too. Hidden from the street level which is a far cry from the past Orchard Building days, but it is such a chore sometimes to just reach the gym as there's only 2 lifts that serve the gym and I find myself having to go to B2 or B3 just so I can squeeze in to go up. And good luck if you're rushing for classes as Taka is filled with families with big prams so you get even less space - lifts fill up very quickly when it hits level 1. Wide range of classes and plenty of TVs to distract you from the sweating. Some sofas to rest on if you're waiting for frens too.

        I joined California fitness on impluse.Initially i got a 2wks complimentary usage of the gym.However when i stepped they brainwashed me to join.As a active person i thought it was a good deal.However after signing up to my regrets i realize i wasn't getting a good deal out of it.Apparently i was paying close to a 100mthly while others can pay for only 50-70 plus mthly for the ultimate usage and free usage of towels etc..Although the gym is well-equipped and stuffs.I find the sales personnels a hoax.Cos if u go around and ask practically everyone is paying a different fee monthly.And it's based on how good you bargain!
