Recently, W Hotels announced its first ever fitness program, FIT with Tara Stiles, which was launched in partnership with the famous “yoga rebel” whose Youtube videos are such a joy to watch. 

I had the opportunity to experience a day at W Singapore Sentosa Cove - worked out at a FIT session with a personal trainer, had lunch prepared based on Tara Stiles’ recipes and then spent some time in the suite practicing simple poses with Tara Stiles’ videos that are screened at all W Hotel rooms worldwide.

I started off with a half-hour session at FIT with a personal trainer. This was not a yoga session but a personal fitness consultation with the trainer, which allowed me to learn more about my weakness and why I am still unable to accomplish difficult yoga poses.

You might have caught my Instagram video training with the weights. Just for laughs!

Next, it was lunch time after my massage treatment at AWAY Spa (more about the massage later). The sampler menu was prepared based on Tara Stiles’ recipes, which were vegan and uber healthy.

From left: Healthy Thousand Island Sandwich, Sweet and Savoury Spinach Salad, Veggie Detox Soup, Rice Noodles with Almond Cream Curry and Portobello Burger Heaven.

All these items are available at W Singapore Sentosa Cove currently. I would recommend the Portobello Burger Heaven, which had a generous slice of mushroom with juicy tomato that was not only delicious, but hearty as well.

I had the Marvelous Suite to myself for a few hours. With Tara’s videos playing on the screen, what was the best way to utilise the room other than to#posewhenever?

Through this partnership with Tara Stiles, the yoga instructor conceptualised four exclusive workouts printed on the in-room tip cards and available on video to encourage hotel patrons to give your body an energetic lift or some stretch at different corners of the room. It is quite inspiring, in my opinion, as a frequent business traveler, I realised that I need to make more effort to exercise and fatigue is not an excuse.

(PS: Tara even came up with a set of exercises that you can do while lying on the bed)

Thanks W Singapore for hosting me for a day! I will share more about the spa treatment in another post.
