About ASPIRE55:1. Tell us more about ASPIRE55
ASPIRE55 - Asia’s first virtual retirement village, is a wellbeing community that offers a combination of social, health and care services that are typically available at a real retirement village, but enables members to continue living in their existing homes. Designed by a team of young and energetic facilitators, our programmes are focused on fun, health and fostering of the ‘kampong’ spirit. This membership programme is tailored for over 55s who would like to take a proactive approach towards staying healthy, mobile and independent as they age. Members will participate in preventive health activities like strength training for falls and incontinence prevention, brain training to reduce risks of dementia and regular social activities.
ASPIRE55 vision focuses on “Wellbeing for Older Adults” - where we aim to build Singapore’s healthiest and happiest community. All our Gold members are monitored on their fitness progression on a quarterly basis via the latest in global technologies and global benchmarks. Each Gold member receives a fitness assessment report every quarter.
We are focused on older people aged over 50, yet create an environment where the interactions are an intergenerational mix of young and old. As the first in Singapore and Asia, we pride ourselves on a family and home environment where we encourage older people to look after their health, increase strength, improve balance and memory via our programmes. We suit people looking for a small club like environment that is unlike traditional large scale clubs and gyms. While our membership base is big, our typical member activities range from as small as 5 to 60, making it easy for members to get to know each other with meaningful interactions.
Anyone above 50 years old who lives in Singapore, including children of these individuals. We welcome family to workout together.
Most of our members are English speaking, with a recent increase in Mandarin speaking members. As such, we do have capabilities to create bilingual programmes and some of our trainers can conduct sessions in both languages. They are typically aged 50 – 90 years old, well travelled, fun loving and independent. Most importantly, our members share a common desire to age in good health and maintain their independence.
Many of our members have never exercised in a gym before. They find conventional gyms large and intimidating. We focus on small, homely and family interactions with our staff becoming the second family to members. We help to motivate members, encourage them during the programmes and help them with strength, balance and memory activities that will help them age more successfully. We encourage you to bring them for a visit to our Clubhouses at One Commonwealth. Drop by for our regular open houses for a coffee and chit chat.
