Choosing the best gym in Hong Kong for you can be overwhelming, especially where there are many choices. Before committing to a gym membership, make use of as many free gym trials in Hong Kong as possible. This will give you a feel of what you prefer to do and where you like best.

Below I explain what 6 of the best Hong Kong gyms have to offer. I also dig into what their free gym trials include.

Which Gyms Offer Free Trials in Hong Kong? 

Taking a free gym trial allows you to take your time and decide which Hong Kong gym is the right fit for you. 

Anytime Fitness Hong Kong, Fitness First Hong Kong, F45, CrossFit Typhoon, Pure Fitness, Crunch Fitness, and Class Pass are the main fitness centers in Hong Kong to offer free gym trials. 

 

What are the Benefits of Having a Free Gym Trial? 

  • Taking a free trial means that you don’t have to commit to a long gym contract if you don’t like the gym you have used in your free gym trial. 
  • Take time to look around and experience different Hong Kong gyms. 
  • Consider what you enjoy from a workout. Try lots of different activities, and this should inform your end decision. 
  • Get the most value out of your money – you have a chance to experience everything a gym has to offer. You also get a chance to see whether the community is the right fit for you.

 

Things to Consider When Taking a Free or Discounted Gym Trial

 

What gym has the best deal for me?  

Consider the activities you want to do and research whether the gym provides them before you book your free trial. That way, you are focusing on your ideal fitness experience from the start. 

How much time you have to go to the gym

Looking ahead at the gym schedule in Hong Kong 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 that you plan to take a free trial with?  

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 free gym trials. This will narrow down your search, and you will find the best Hong Kong Gym for you much quicker. 

Quality and Type 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? Or would you be happy sharing a smaller range of work-out equipment in a smaller gym?

A gym free trial will give you a real insight into all the facilities at each gym and the way it functions. 

Community 

Are you looking to disappear into your own world as you work-out? Or do you find a large gym overpowering and faceless? Again, 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 could observe the community in the gym you have chosen. 

Is it friendly? Too big to be personal? Do you enjoy a community where everyone knows each other, and they work out together? 

 

Finally

Signing up for multiple free or discounted 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. Your gym should be within your ideal budget, and most of all, fun!
