Not for the faint of heart, this gym specialises in high-intensity workouts with their TRI (treadmill, resistance and intensity) training systems which claim to burn up to 1,000 calories per session and work muscles you didn’t know you had. With ultra-encouraging trainers, a fresh shake bar, where a nutritious protein shake will be ready and waiting for you to grab after the workout, and a community of like-minded individuals all trying to reach their goals, Trib3 is an unforgettable workout experience. While the training is challenging, their workouts are programmed to get results for everyone, and so, they offer classes for beginners too.

Upon joining, you’ll receive a complimentary lifestyle evaluation health check, which can then be used to create a personalised gym programmed to suit your current lifestyle and what you want to achieve. Of course, if you’re simply looking to take a break and indulge in some much-needed pampering, relax in their saunas, steam rooms, spa pools or, book a treatment such as a massage, manicure or facial with one of their in-house, professional therapists.
