Buddy, it’s time to get back on the resolution bandwagon. That’s right, it’s time to get back into #fitspo mode and turn that happy tummy into rock hard abs…. Or cry trying.

While Chapel Street is the home of the best bites, cafes & restaurants, it’s also the best place to get your rig into shape! Here are the top 10 places for fitness on Chapel Street!

For the mind, body & health approach to #fitspo Kaya Health Club in Prahran is exactly what you’re looking for. For a flat weekly membership fee, you’ll have access to over 300 different classes – especially helpful if it’s cardio day, but you’re actually feeling like yoga would hit the spot instead. Especially come savasana time, do you feel me?
