What’s on this weekend…
Up for a challenge, girls? We’re putting the pedal to the metal in the run up to Spartan Race, HK’s epic obstacle challenge, starting with a special reader’s training session! Sign up for a circuit-style taster class, treat those aches and pains with some yoga on the beach and reward your efforts with one of the many cool parties and events happening this weekend!
A couple of us at Sassy HQ have taken the plunge and signed ourselves up for one of the most epic obstacle races in Hong Kong – The Spartan Race! And if, like us, you’re a little worried about the impact your weekly wine and office snack intake will have on your ability to jump through errm, fire (eek!), then join us for two awesome training sessions hosted by Bikini Fit and All About Aesthetics. Challenge yourself and take part in one or both of these circuit-style sessions, which will have you feeling (relatively!) prepared for the main event next month!

Where: Hong Kong Park/Tamar Park
