Resolving to get fitter in the new year? Why not have a go at some of the best kickboxing classes in Singapore to get you in shape? Kickboxing is a popular self-defence martial art that involves coordination of both kicks and punches with some classes even incorporating aerobics and other Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) like Muay Thai. Afraid of combat sports? Fret not, we’ve included non-combat alternatives below as well for those not fans of sparring!
1. Evolve MMA
Kickboxing at Evolve MMA is based on both the disciplines of Muay Thai and K-1 Dutch-style kickboxing. Muay Thai is a combat sport that allows for stand-up striking and clinching techniques while K1-Dutch style kickboxing relies heavily on foot-kicking techniques. Together, you can expect the kickboxing classes here to get intense, fierce but oh so very fulfilling.
With the most number of authentic World Champions available under one roof on the island, there’s a reason why the kickboxing classes here are touted to be one of the best in Singapore. Ready for a glute-tightening, core-strengthening time? Sign up for a free trial class before committing to their packages.
We couldn’t resist including one of their many inspiring testimonial videos! This one is of an 18-year-old MMA fighter and it will surely get you off your butt and moving!

4. True Fitness
True Fitness is a name synonymous with fitness clubs in Singapore and offers a plethora of fitness classes to choose from, from yoga and pilates to spinning and other high-intensity workouts. True Fitness’ BODYCOMBAT– an empowering cardio class — bears a resemblance to kickboxing we can’t help but ignore. It includes the signature punches and kicks with even some kata (karate) moves thrown in! But what’s different here is that you’ll do all this with heart-thumping, adrenaline pumping music! Yup, you heard us! Burn those calories while busting your boxing gloves to a choreographed routine.
BODYCOMBAT follows the legendary Les Mills programs where you can look forward to challenging yourself to a new choreographed routine every three months.

5. Kickbox Fusion
Fitness First is another popular fitness gym in Singapore. Their fusion kickboxing class incorporates both aerobic moves and martial arts moves to give you full upper-body conditioning. Though it may seem ‘easier’ or less intense than the classes which fully concentrate on honing the martial side of kickboxing, be warned that you can’t afford to slack in these classes! We promise that you’ll still leave class drenched in sweat and having worked muscles you’re weren’t sure even existed!
This is one of the best kickboxing classes in Singapore if you want to enjoy the benefits of both aerobics and kickboxing but without the heavy training of the martial arts segment. With many Fitness First outlets scattered islandwide, make it a new year’s resolution to get that knockout body you’ve always dreamed of in a fun and unintimidating environment!

6. Savate Club
Savate or French kickboxing is a martial art that involves dishing out the signature kickboxing punches and kicks but this time with footwear on! Savate — which means ‘Old Shoe’ in French — was a street fighting technique, used by sailors for self-defence from the early 19th century in France.
Expect to incorporate light sparring into your kickboxing classes at Savate. For advanced practitioners, you can up your game with hard contact sparring! With dedicated trainers and a small-size class that meets at the PESEB stadium, Savate is one of the best kickboxing classes to join if you’re looking for a more unique contact sport.
Address: PESEB Stadium, 21 Evans Road, S(259366)
7. Juggernaut Studio
Though smaller and newer than sister studio, Juggernaut Fight Club, this studio packs just as much of a punch — pun intended. Train under Singapore’s first professional female boxer, Nurshahidah ‘The Sniper’ Roslie at Juggernaut Studio — we promise, she doesn’t bite! With functional fitness incorporated into their kickboxing classes, expect to sweat it out to a mix of Circuit Training and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions on top of your kickboxing classes. These will leave you stronger, conditioned and ready to take on your combaters in style!
