MOVE The Fitness Lifestyle Store is now open at Two Parkade, Bonifacio High Street! I attended the grand opening last Thursday, April 25.
If you recall, I wrote about the active lifestyle stores at Two Parkade back in January, and MOVE hadn’t opened yet.

MOVE is Toby Claudio’s brainchild with Quorum Group (the same company behind RUNNR, Toby’s Sports, and Urban Athletics). Most sports stores fill all available store space with so much equipment you can’t really figure out what you need, especially if you’re a sedentary person who’s never exercised before. MOVE takes you through four steps to get you on the right track.
They offer a free assessment on the InBody machine, which detects your body composition. My results were quite detailed, even showing that my right side is more muscular than my left side (by 200 grams). At the time I took the test, I was my fittest ever in three years due to training for SuBIT. That might be why I got the highest fitness score on the test (among those who were tested) and won a gift pack. :)
While I scored well on the assessment, most other people I talked to at the launch were shocked by how much of their body mass is composed of fat, or how slow their metabolism is, or how close to obesity they are. It’s a wake-up call to set their fitness goal: Get Active, Burn, Build, or Perform.
All of MOVE’s equipment is categorized by which goal they can help you with. MOVE’s in-house team can also suggest exercises to perform with the equipment. Lastly, you can set an appointment with a coach to design a free workout plan for you.
MOVE’s mezzanine level is also available as a group workout or personal training space. It’s the home base for Zumba dance workout classes and Coach Jim Saret’s MetaFit program. I was thinking Team Endure could use the space for regular strength and conditioning sessions!
If you want to get moving, visit MOVE at Two Parkade Bonifacio High Street (beside Adidas and The Athlete’s Foot, across Track BGC). As Toby said, “Life is movement.”
