Ways We Support

Education and Guidance

At our gyms, our trained professionals educate and supervise the seniors on the safe and right way to build strength.

Beyond the strength-building exercises in our gym, we also guide seniors on using resistance bands so that they can continue training on their own at home.

Pre- and Post-Assessment

At the start of the programme, seniors are assessed on their baseline fitness to understand their condition and identify areas for improvement. A post-assessment is done after 12 weeks of training to track their progress.

Structured and Supervised Group Training

Seniors will undergo 12 weeks of strength training with two sessions per week. Each session spans 40-50 minutes of structured training under the guidance of our wellness trainers.


Seniors who are:

  • 55 years and above
  • Able to commit twice weekly
  • Able to walk
  • Able to follow simple instructions

For seniors with medical conditions (e.g. stroke, diabetes), a doctor’s letter is required.

Our fees are between $5 to $12 per session. Programmes are typically 12 or 24 sessions.

Our Gym Tonic programmes are not eligible for:

  • Government subsidies and discounts
  • SkillsFuture credits
  • Pioneer Generation and Merdeka cardholders
  • ActiveSG credits

The senior-friendly strength training program by Gym Tonic is a great experience for seniors above 55 who wish to build muscle strength and overall fitness. Each individual can work on their own targets and push to tolerable limits to experience a rewarding exercise on each of the 7 gym machines.

I would like to highly commend the trainers at Toa Payoh Blk 62B who are always ready to personally guide me. Additionally, they will gladly provide extra exercise tips and sharing upon requests to work on one’s fitness requirements with their other exercise equipment, including resistance bands and exercise balls. I personally benefited from such helpful sharing.

My mum was lacking in muscle strength when she first started on the Gym Tonic programme. Under the supportive guidance of the team, she has been exercising regularly and remained fit and mobile. My mother looks forward to her sessions and I believe the programme has contributed to her mental and physical health.
