Looking to get or stay fit? Spinning or indoor cycling is one of the hottest 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.

Velocity Aquabike

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.

Project S

Project S is a cosy fitness studio located in Sheung Wan. Believing in the power of group training, founder Sarah Wersborg has created a welcoming and comfortable space for busy people to work out together. Different from the usual dimmed spinning studios that resemble a nightclub more than they do a gym, the classroom at Project S is naturally lit with big windows. Don’t be fooled into believing that these good vibes mean the classes will be easy—the programme offers short but intense workouts. The cycling classes last from 30 to 50 minutes, and a bootcamp class combines strength and spinning for a rounded session.

Pherform

This women-only gym opened its doors in 2016 with one goal in mind: creating a space for women to pursue their fitness goals. Gyms and fitness studios have come a long way on the path to inclusivity, but it is still astounding to see how gendered certain types of exercises are perceived. Knowing this, the team at Pherform offers a varied group-class schedule for women to come lift weights and train together. Three times a week, the gym holds the “Spinher” indoor cycling class to train endurance.
