What are the key things to consider before joining a gym in Hong Kong?

The class schedule
Looking ahead at the gym class schedule will be useful for you. Will you be able to make the classes or sessions? How far away is the fitness center in Hong Kong from your work or home?

Budget 
Prices vary widely between the gyms in Hong Kong. Work out what you can ideally spend a month on fitness before committing to any gym memberships. This will narrow down your search, and you will find the best Hong Kong Gym for you much quicker. 

Quality of Facilities 
Do you love a high-class change-room? Or are you happy with the basics? Are you expecting to see a wide range of equipment in your ideal gym?

Why does community matter when deciding on a gym membership?

Each gym has its own unique vibe and community. By experiencing a gym for free, you can really get a feel for how it would be for you.

Some people enjoy having gym buddies, and others just want to zone out. During a free gym trial, you get the opportunity to observe the community in the gym you have chosen. 

Finally

Signing up for multiple discounted or free gym trials will allow you to find the best Hong Kong gym for you.

Remember to think about what you enjoyed about each fitness center and how you like to work out. When making your decision, the best gym for you in Hong Kong should be where you feel most comfortable.
