Fit Eat In: Outdoor workout (with lunch to-go)

Fit Eat In has transformed the lunchtime workout game. With a meal included in the package, you’ll never be compromising a quality meal for a quality workout. Designed with the “busy professional in mind”, each 30-minute session is based around High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Set outdoors, the classes involve a series of intense exercises and short rest periods. It’s also recently introduced yoga sessions for a grounding, mindful workout.The goal is to help you fit it in “without changing your schedule,” so you can expect a combination of cardio and strength training, working to achieve maximum results. We’re talking stair sprints, and lots of them!

Rope in your colleagues and try one of the exclusive corporate fitness sessions. The trainers will get you out of the office and bonding over burpees before you can think about lunch.

HIT45: Indoor Boutique Bootcamp

HIT45 is packed FULL with (you guessed it) 45-minute classes. The set up resembles an indoor-bootcamp-meets-studio-gym and the high-intensity training sessions offer a mix of cardio, strengthening, and fat-burning exercises. With classes focusing on upper body, lower body, arms and abs, full body, and core, you can pick and choose the class tailored to your needs. The sleek studio is fully geared with an array of shiny, new gym equipment – including Green Jog Treadmills, which are good for the environment and your body.

These experts are all about offering step by step guidance – oh, and the studio stocks made-to-order protein shakes and high protein power bars! Bonus.

Flex Studio Hong Kong: Barre and Yoga

If you’re looking for something a little different, head over to Flex‘s Yoga or Barre Classes. Both are 50 minutes so you may just have time to squeeze it in a lunch break! We absolutely loved the Xtend Barre Class – an energetic alternative to get your energy pumping. The general level of intensity is more on the relaxed end of the spectrum, but the Level 2 Xtend Barre is a fun class (especially if you come from a dance background). FLEXtreme is also a fairly recent program that features cardio and strength training classes aimed to burn fat and tone muscle. It offers three types of classes; Sweat (HIIT), Power (strength training) and TRX®. The locations have a range of classes so you can cherrypick whatever suits your style.

XYZ: Spinning

These classes bring a wave of indoor cycling to Hong Kong, taking the ‘spinning’ phenomenon to the next level. With minimal lighting (no one needs to see your workout face), flashing lights and pumping music, there’s something about XYZ that feels more like a nightclub than your average spin class. If you’re new to the world of wheels, check out the 50 minute Buddy Ride Classes to get you started.

F45: Cardio and Weights

F45 is a fun, functional, no-fuss gym, catering to the independent athletes. This get-it-done class is fully stocked with all you’d ever need for a quick power class. With cardio and weight classes running throughout the day (from as early as 5:15am to 8pm), you’re sure to find something to suit your needs. We had a chance to check out the cardio class, and found ourselves really pushed to perform. As you’re grouped in pairs, it’s worth heading over with a friend to keep you extra motivated. This type of fast-paced class is great for people who already have basic knowledge on gym equipment, and a basic level of fitness.

Pure Fitness centres are equipped with facilities and classes to cater to a whole spectrum of interests and abilities. From one-on-one PT, to freestyle training, to group exercise classes, you’re guaranteed to find a workout that works in your favour.

To make the process a little easier, Pure often offers express classes around lunch hours. If convenience is a priority (always…), the sheer number of locations in Hong Kong is a selling point.
