The Gym Pod Mission
The Gym Pod’s mission is to provide the space, tools, and knowledge for you to get better, healthier & happier. Whether you’re a beginner who wants to #JustGetStarted or already a fitness professional, we welcome you as an important member of our community.
We use technology to continuously make fitness easier and more accessible for you. Through our automated pods, our app, and unique ways of training, we will always aim to deliver innovative fitness solutions.
Everyone’s fitness journey is different, and it’s not always easy. No matter what roadblocks may come along the way, we are here to help you grow in the right direction.
Some people are more comfortable working out behind closed doors. Others just hate queueing for equipment. We want to give you the space to workout in without any unnecessary distractions.
No matter if you’ve never step foot inside a gym before, or you’re training for your next marathon, we welcome all to our Gym Pod community and treat everyone with the same respect.
Proper training is about more than just losing weight or gaining muscle. We work with accredited coaches and trainers who curate programs backed by scientific data and evidence. We aim to teach you how to train with longevity in mind.
If your body is a machine, then you need to maintain its parts for the machine to function well. In order to achieve true overall wellness and to function optimally, making wise food and fluid choices are a must.
Hard work comes with recovery. Sufficient sleep is proven to have positive effects on your brain, physiological health and mental/emotional well-being. In order to balance your fitness journey, we also believe in getting sufficient rest to make sure your body is ready to operate at its highest potential.
We value mental and emotional wellness just as highly as your physical fitness. By maintaining and improving your mental health and taking care of your emotional well-being, we believe that it will contribute to a happier lifestyle.
The mastermind: Damian wants to make the world better, healthier and happier.
Read Damian's Story
Being an introvert, he doesn’t like going into a crowded gym filled with sweaty, grunting men.
Besides, most gyms are not within walking distance of his home or workplace, so he would have skipped most of his workouts and waste the gym membership away.
One day he had an idea: “What if I have a private space near my home or workplace with just enough equipments to workout? I can also follow workout programs from YouTube easily.”
So he came up with The Gym Pod, a 24hr container gym with no frills that is fully un-manned, private, and small enough to be located within office and housing estates.
He’s still a skinny guy, but he has now started working out regularly. You can do it too.

Read Lucius's Story
Lucius spends 10 hours a day staring at the computer.
By the end of the day, he’s mentally drained and lazy to travel all the way to the gym. If only there was a place to lift weights that’s just a few minutes walk away.
Now that we have the Gym Pod, Lucius can workout with Damian and Gerald after their long working hours – at any time of the day!
Like Lucius, Singaporeans are extremely hardworking people. But he can still clock an hour or two of exercise each week. With the Gym Pod, you can too!
