Keeping fit and powering through the New Year’s Resolutions (yes, we are still sticking to them), can get a bit monotonous. When we go to the same gym at the same time of day, it can start to get tiring and if we’re honest, a bit demotivating. We love to experiment with our fitness regimes by mixing up where we workout as well as what we’re doing. For most of these it’s much easier to do on the weekends, but that means its an excuse to get the squad together and have a catch up whilst learning something new. The best part of learning a new sport or doing an activity in the city is that we get to explore a lot more of what Hong Kong has to offer.
Rock climbing in Wong Chuk Hang
Hong Kong is no stranger to tall walls, but in this concrete jungle there are only a few we’re able to climb! Go bouldering or rock climbing in one of Hong Kong’s indoor walls to get a full workout and a sense of adventure as you work out the best routes to climb through. Attic V is Hong Kong Island’s only bouldering club where you can either get private tuition or with a group, so you can always find ways to socialise and pack in a decent workout! Just 1 min walk from the new Wong Chuk Hang MTR station, this gives you the perfect excuse to try out the new line!

Wakeboarding in Stanley
Definitely one to save for the warmer months, but there’s no harm in looking now! X Game not only offer wakeboarding lessons (a skill you’ll definitely want to show off for the next junk trip), but also windsurfing, surfing and kiteboarding lessons! HK has never felt so SoCal! For wakeboarding you can either get private lessons or in a group, which sounds like a great way to socialise at the weekends that doesn’t involve a boozy brunch!

Cycling in Tai Po
Why not take a scenic route whilst working out? Hong Kong is filled with amazing cycle tracks from Tai Po along the sea front, to trails in Cheung Chau to give you an island view! Cycling also gives you the opportunity to stop off at cafes to recharge (unlike hiking)! Check out Discover Hong Kong’s full list of hikes and bikes for our great outdoors
Ice skating in Tai Koo
Winter may be coming to an end, but luckily for us we can pretend to be in a winter wonderland all year long with Hong Kong’s malls having a love for ice ice baby! Ice skating is always a laugh and a fun way to work out by (especially when you go with a friend less gracefully inclined). Check out this list of Hong Kong Ice Skating Rinks to find the one closest to you!
Scuba Diving in Sai Kung
Why wait to go to the Philippines or Thailand to learn how to scuba dive when you can do it right here in Hong Kong! Although you’ll have to wait till the summer draws closer to sign up to Splash, it’s still some summer fun to look forward to and a skill set that you can take anywhere. Well, anywhere with beautiful tropical water!

Trampolining in Quarry Bay
Take fitness back to your childhood and that carefree spirit with one of Hong Kong’s trampoline parks! Ryze in Quarry Bay not only house 7,000 sq foot of trampoline ground, but also push the boat out with Ninja Warrior obstacle courses and club nights so you can bounce to the beat and fist pump without even noticing that you’re toning up!
