First launched in 2018, The Gym Pod is Singapore's first 24 hour automated container gym.

Repurposed from shipping containers, these container gyms come with glass windows, air-conditioning and modern gym equipment.

There are also shower facilities, public washrooms and F&B joints near these pods.

Tweet gains public interest

On July 10, 2019, Twitter maestro Xavier Lur (@xavierlur) tweeted four photographs of the container gym's interiors and exteriors.

Each pod costs upwards of S$7/session, which lasts for 30 minutes.

If you're not shy about working out with strangers, however, prices start as low as S$2.50 per pax.

Here are a closer look at some of his photos:
