It aims to help both local fitness clubs and travellers alike.
Who says fitness and traveling have to be mutually exclusive? ARFIT Club believes this shouldn’t be the case. It’s a platform that aims to help local fitness clubs to be able to connect to travellers visiting Singapore. It does so by promoting the sale of short-term fitness passes or classes by local fitness clubs to travellers visiting Singapore, according to Angelina Francesca Cheang, founder, ARFIT Club.
“What makes ARFIT Club unique is that, no other platform in Singapore has partnered with local fitness clubs to provide short–term membership passes to travellers in Singapore,” says Cheang. “Our partners will be working with us exclusively to provide this service and therefore, we do expect it to be the number one platform for such services even in the future.”
The motivation to create ARFIT Club mainly came from hearing and understanding the current struggles of local small businesses in Singapore, says Cheang. Being an avid traveler and a successful entrepreneur, she knows how it is like to travel economically and also understands the grueling journey of start-ups.
Though most travellers were staying in more affordable accommodations, Cheang felt that they were still no less entitled to fitness facilities that would allow them to keep their fitness levels up while travelling. And thus, when she connected the two and two together, the idea of ARFIT Club was conceived: A platform that would allow local fitness clubs to earn extra revenue from selling short-term membership passes/classes to travellers who were staying in accommodations that did not provide such facilities.
Though at this initial stage, ARFIT Club is focused on local fitness clubs, it will slowly expand to allow travellers to book accommodations at local hostels alongside with a food and culture section on the platform to let travellers know what to expect when they visit Singapore.
“We have great plans for the platform in the future. Within the next five years, we intend to be partnered with at least 80% of all local fitness clubs in the world,” says Cheang.
Other than partnering with economy hotels and backpacker hostels, Cheang says they will also extend platform services to include booking of local attractions and tours in advance from reputable agencies and attraction partners. They also plan to work with transport companies to provide discounts or promotions for car rental or chartered van rentals.
