Fitness fiends and the Shenton Way gym crowd ought to know Victoria Martin-Tay by now. After all, she is one-half of the up-and-coming #fitspo couple behind hip downtown boutique gym Boom Singapore. This underground — really, it’s situated in the basement of a Cecil Street office building — opened its doors in Jan this year offering trending aqua boxing classes.
Already, this workout genre has been hailed as the next High Intensity Interval Training, a.k.a HITT for its dynamic regimen. Together with her husband and business partner (former Olympian and swimmer Bryan Tay), Martin-Tay creates 45-minute classes that meld boxing on a punching bag filled with water with a strength training component. So how do you keep up with this active fitness buff? We tag along with her for a day — both on and off the exercise floor.
