When it comes to working out, there are many boutique gyms and studios in Hong Kong that are great alternatives to the city’s mainstream gym chains. Treadmills and ellipticals, after all, aren’t for everyone and let’s be honest, overcrowded gyms don’t really set the mood.
To focus on your goals – and to prove that getting in shape doesn’t have to be boring – here are five unique fitness studios in Hong Kong that are great alternatives to otherwise conventional gyms:

Barre 2 Barre
Barreamped is not to be mistaken with a dance class, though it is in many ways inspired by classical and modern dance. It’s a workout that uses the barre as a prop to balance while doing isometric strength training – contracting specific muscles through small and isolated movements. The challenging postures help lengthening tight muscles, burn fat and increase your metabolism.
