Aisyah Mohamed Rafa’ee took Singapore to the Olympic games, and now she’s taken on trying out as many GuavaPass classes as she can get her hands on!
There were a few things that had Aisyah hooked on GuavaPass – the ability of classes to fit into her busy schedule, the range of workouts, and the resulting effects on her body trying out so many different styles.
So we gave her some recommendations and set her on a path of #GuavaGains!
For the next few weeks, she’ll be dedicating her time to trying out the best Singapore GuavaPass has to offer. Follow her adventures here on The Daily Guava and via her Instagram (@ariesyah).
Inspired by Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan’s win in the IBO Super Featherweight International title, I decided to attend one of the popular Still Boxing classes- so popular that it’s always hard to get a slot on GuavaPass!! I attended an early class- 7:15am in fact- even before my brain could wake up.

The class was conducted in a dark room lit with neon pulsing lights everywhere. It really fitted into the whole look of the space. Each of us had a teardrop-shaped punching bag hanging from the ceiling. Everything about the gym was aesthetically pleasing and “cool”- even the instructor seemed pretty cool.
I had wraps so that saved me $10 from purchasing a pair over the counter and the rental for the boxing gloves were free.
These classes are super popular, so it was no surprise that the class was pretty big – I am guessing there were at least 15 of us that morning. Personally, I prefer smaller class sizes so that the instructor has more time to focus on us. But sometimes bigger class sizes mean more energy in the class, but also more opportunities to slack off (don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about!). I was pretty impressed at how the instructor managed to find her way around the gym, maneuvering her way between the swinging punching bags and sweaty participants (in the dimly-lit room, mind you!) to correct our technique one by one.
After an hour, throwing punches in the dark, with plenty of mountain climbers, push-ups, sit-ups and shadow boxing with the dumbbells, I was pretty knackered! But never too tired to take a selfie with this aptly-named wall:
The boxing class was great, as it gave me a good workout but I personally prefer small class sizes. The boxing studio is definitely Instagram-worthy, I must admit! And the shower in the GuavaLabs next door- oooh, it’s definitely worth signing up for sessions there just to experience the shower!
