Episode 2: From Fitness To Wellness

Indoor rock climbing at Climb Central

Scaling new heights — both literally and figuratively — requires one to be mentally resilient. Challenge your limits at Climb Central, an indoor rock climbing facility that’s conveniently located within Funan Mall. Yes, you read that right! A rock-climbing feature within a shopping mall!

It’s a unique experience in Singapore that invites the whole family to enjoy a slew of amenities under one roof: from entertainment and shopping to sports and wellness. Beyond reaping the physical benefits of this low-impact, endurance exercise, rock climbing is a great avenue for you to strengthen and sharpen your mental focus as well.

Salt therapy at Pablo Blau

Did you know? Salt can be an important ‘condiment’ for your body’s holistic recovery journey too. Harness the healing powers of halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, at Pablo Blau — the only salt spa in Singapore that’s located at Raffles City Shopping Centre. This unique wellness destination is designed to mimic a manmade salt cave to help users relax and let the body’s muscles recover in an organic manner. In fact, inhaling atmospheric salt particles is known to help with normalising the body’s PH levels and in promoting cell regeneration too.

Soak up vitamin ‘sea’ at Smith Marine Floating Restaurant

Escaping to ‘blue spaces’, such as the lake or the sea, allows you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of urban life — and reconnect with nature. Experience a change in scenery by hopping on a 15-minute boat ride to Pulau Ubin, an island northeast of mainland Singapore. There, you’ll find Smith Marine Floating Restaurant, a first-of-its-kind ‘kelong’ destination in the country that nourishes you from inside out with the freshest catch as you enjoy the sea breeze and surround yourself with glistening waters.
