We’re all a little sick of shopping malls and cafés as the places to chill with friends over the weekend. It’s expensive (GST looms), time-consuming, boring, done and dusted. Instead of going through the motions, why not try something new, exciting and fitness-related? And no, they are not just another gym or fitness centre with the same ol’ spinning, crossfit or swimming classes… we’re talking about the likes of extreme sports, adult playgrounds and water-centric sports to enjoy with friends!
