A slew of exciting offerings are in the pipeline when ActiveSG, a national movement and sporting social network by Sport Singapore, goes live this Saturday with an open house at Jurong West Sports Centre. 

Our News Desk had a sneak peek. 

From Piloxing - a combination of pilates, boxing and dancing, to Masala Bhangra, a workout inspired by Indian dance, and even K-Pop dance classes. 

These new fitness programmes are set to get pulses racing. 

And soon, they'll all be available at a public sports centre near you. 

It's all part of the ActiveSG movement - which hopes to get every Singaporean, even the most sluggish couch potato, on his - or her feet. 

Chief of Sport Singapore's Sports Club Group Lai Chin Kwang elaborates. 

"What we want for every Singaporean is to give us a chance to give them a "Wow!" experience. To come here and enjoy the joy of having an active lifestyle and the joy of living better through sports."

Those who sign up will enjoy benefits like priority booking of facilities, complimentary trial classes, and ActiveSG dollars. 

Members can also look for sports buddies and form interest groups through a new Membership Management System. 

But that's not all. 

Under ActiveSG, public sports facilities like swimming complexes will get a makeover. 

Which means one can enjoy gyms by the swimming pool, paddle boats, and new fixtures like Flippa Ball, which is modified water polo for kids. 

Aqua Spinning, a cycling workout with water resistance incorporated, will be another feature. 

Consumers 938LIVE spoke to, like polytechnic student Guo Hao, are looking forward to keeping fit with these new offerings. 

"If there are new programmes that interest me, then why not? If they revamp the entire place and make it more appealing, i'm sure many more people will be attracted to come to this sports complex."

The same goes for Lau Kok Keong. 

" I will use the new facilities more. And more and more and more more more! "

Singaporeans and Permanent Residents can sign up as an ActiveSG member at myactivesg.com
