SAFRA Tampines threw a big bash to celebrate its spanking new look after weeks of renovations to update its amenities and refresh its member experience. Over the weekend of 27-28 Apr, some 5,000 guests poured into the newly upgraded social and recreational hub for a sneak peek. The lifestyle centre is one of six such hubs islandwide, the others being SAFRA Jurong, SAFRA Mount Faber, SAFRA Punggol, SAFRA Toa Payoh and SAFRA Yishun.
A “Pump up the Jam” open house at EnergyOne kicked off the event in the morning for guests to view the newly refurbished gym. Exclusive membership promotions, including free personal training sessions, protein shake samplings and goodie bags, were extended to early birds who enrolled. To rev up the celebratory mood, an energy-packed montage of “Best 50 Pop Work-out Music” was spun by DJ Clare, one of Singapore’s leading female EDM musicians.
The mainstay that day, however, was the “Sweat it Out Challenge” – a sports contest open to individuals, pairs or groups. It drew numerous sports enthusiasts who had to complete myriad challenges at various stations at the hub, including the gym, swimming pool and even the SuperBowl. Those who completed all the stations received a stamp on the challenge passport. On getting all 13 stamps, the participants stood a chance at a lucky draw.
