I’m really glad to be invited to do a review for another gym like Kinetika Xtreme is more unique and different from the mainstream kind of gyms out there. Here, you don’t see heavy dumbbells, plates and rows after rows of gym equipment or treadmill. In fact, you will only see one type of gym equipment here – that is the Kinesis by Technogym. On my first visit to Kinetika Xtreme, I wasn’t quite sure if the Kinesis could provide me with a full body workout. Well, I wasn’t proven wrong after Ghaneswaran Sukumaran, Founder and Owner of Kinetika, taught me how to use this gigantic equipment. By the end of the first Kinesis training session, I was super impress with this multi-functional machine. This futuristic machine itself is the GYM!
I did squats, crunches, tricep dips, pull downs, bicep curls, pectoral fly and many other weight training exercises using just this one machine. You could easily adjust the weight to increase or decrease resistance to each exercise moves.
The Kinesis training system focuses on natural movements of the human body using an innovative patent-pending 3D pulley system that allows 360° tri-dimensional movements. It allows one to do conventional strength training and functional training exercises that maximises training efficiency with visible results.
Another commendable feature about the Kinesis is its versatility. It allows different exercises to be executed safely with ease, and the pulley systems also enable people from all body-types to train with ease, including the elderly, those with particular sports injuries and even the disabled.
Currently, there are only two Technogym Master Trainers in Singapore: Ghaneswaran Sukumaran and Santhi Haridass who were both trained and certified in Italy. Both of them also fronted Kinetika Xtreme, a one-of-a-kind gym in Singapore that utilises the Technogym’state-of-the art patented training systems – Kinesis and ARKE.
I was given 12 training sessions to experience what Kinesis and ARKE training is like and so far I’ve already gone for 7 sessions and I’m loving it! The challenging exercises had pushed me a harder to work and activate those weaker muscles like my biceps and triceps. Before joining Kinetika Xtreme, I felt that my fitness level has started to plateau off after doing the same set of exercises in the gym but I got out of that ‘stagnant zone’ after doing ARKE which uses a different set of exercise equipment to train balance, agility and coordination of the body.
Other than Kinesis training, I would also attend core-centric ARKE training classes on alternate weeks.
Kinetika Xtreme is located on the 7th floor, right above Pasar Bella. There’s a lift inside Pasar Bella ( near the washroom) which brings you up to Level 7. For more information how to get to the Grand Stand, you can check out this link. I would often take a train down to Clementi MRT station and hop onto the shuttle bus to reach The Grand Stand. It is rather accessible and convenient to get there, actually!
Kinetika Xtreme is currently offering 6 session of free personalized training sessions for those who are interested in doing a trial. For more details, visit their website here.
Hope to see you there if you’re embarking on this fitness journey at Kinetika! Let’s go to the Xtreme!
