Game on! Fitness Meets Tech
A fun-filled game night for SIT alumni as they try out a novel immersive fitness experience.
More than 20 SIT alumni took part in an exhilarating fitness session during the Alumni Sports Network’s Immersive Fitness Experience that was held at the Ascend Fitness @ YMCA on 28 July 2023.
The gamified workout programme, touted to be the first of its kind in Singapore that blends technology and fitness, combines exercise with game elements and high-energy music to inject fun into workouts. Participants were guided by certified trainers from Exerstar through a series of high-intensity exercises that involves a darkroom setting and floor projection mapping.
For Ms Kimberly Kwan from SIT’s Occupational Therapy programme, Class of 2020, it was her first time trying a gamified workout. “The session was fun as I got to challenge my physical dexterity and compete against the other participants! It was also refreshing to socialise with other SIT alumni and this event gave us a common topic to talk about and break the ice,” she added.
Mr Boo Yi Jian from the 2020 Class of the SIT and University of Glasgow (UofG) degree programme in Mechanical Design Engineering said, “It was like stepping into a lively fusion of traditional and cutting-edge technology! The workout evolved into an exhilarating challenge that pushed our physical limits and the session was complemented by interactive networking that nurtured connections. SIT also prioritised our safety and even provided energizing food to replenish our strength! I totally recommend fellow SIT alumni to explore the upcoming events – Gather your friends and join in the fun!”
