This is one for those who love spinning and cycling but not so much the sweating that comes with working out. Velocity Aquabike Studio is Asia’s first ever “aquabike” studio that provides private watery workouts. It is Hong Kong’s first female-only studio in town when it opened in 2016. It offers a unique wellness experience combining jacuzzi spa technology and an underwater bicycle. This hydrotherapy treatment helps reduce cellulite and thigh dimples and burns calories more efficiently than traditional cycling.

Featuring 26 jacuzzi spa-grade jets in-house, each underwater exercise bike workout also includes a vigorous jet massage that helps boost blood and lymphatic circulation, leaving your legs feeling light, supple, and fully comforted.

Where: 14/F, Oliv, 15-21 Sharp Street East, Causeway Bay

Adding a silent “h” to make up “her”, Pherform is a female-focused gym. It offers the unique anatomical, hormonal and physiological differences in how women respond to the training stimuli. With key modalities of strength & power, metabolic conditioning, and isolated hypertrophy, trainees get a chance to become stronger, faster, fitter, healthier and leaner.

Pherform’s indoor cycling workout, Spinher, focuses on building endurance through resistance-based intervals. Classes are 45 minutes long and scheduled at various times throughout the week.
