Looking to get or stay fit? Spinning or indoor cycling is one of the hottest new workouts to try. If you’re not very active but still want to burn some calories and get in shape, this is a great option! Spinning also helps to relieve stress and improve cardiovascular fitness, among many other health benefits. The weather in Hong Kong remains hot and humid for most of the year, so if riding a bicycle outdoors is not up your alley, this is the next best thing. Below, we list the best spin and indoor cycling studios in Hong Kong for your next workout.
Since 2013, XYZ has been a place where fitness and wellness enthusiasts come together to strengthen cardio health, release stress, and be part of a close-knit community. The recent opening of its outpost in Central marks a new chapter for the boutique cycling studio, which now offers yoga, boot camp, dance, and many other classes.
In its three new rooms—Mycelium, Cocoon, and Cave—expect meticulously crafted classes that explore the connection between physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The signature “Born to Move” spin class takes place in the Cave room. Each 50-minute challenge has an experienced instructor who helps you to get through the cardio-intensive, calorie-burning, and full-body conditioning workout. Multiple spin classes are offered per day.

Indoor cycling is intense enough, but can you imagine doing it partially submerged? At Velocity Studio, Asia’s first solo aquabike studio, you can do exactly that. The studio brings together state-of-the-art French and Japanese wellness technology for a unique experience.
A 30-minute Aquabike class combines jacuzzi technology and an underwater bicycle so you can experience a workout in a weightless environment. In addition to burning calories, it’s also a type of hydrotherapy treatment to help reduce cellulite! Other features include ozone-infused water to detoxify your skin and soothing chromotherapy to calm your mind.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with the cycling classes alone! The “Cycsync” class is a cycling experience driven by music and synchronised movement, while the “Cyclone” workout is focused on tracking your performance capabilities, as each bike is equipped with a data monitoring system to keep tabs on your power, heart rate, distance, calories, speed, and time.
To make your cycling more immersive, why not try “The Trip?” Here, cinema-quality video content is projected onto the screen and instructors cue you to move perfectly with the music and graphics.
