Summer is officially here—and whether you like it or not, that means it's swimwear season. Looking to get in summer shape, fast (or at least, get closer to it)?
We asked three of Hong Kong's top trainers at Flex Studio including Chelsea Wong, Viv Kan and Wu Cheng Fang to share their tips on how to get summer ready.
But as the saying goes, why get ready when you can stay ready?

My best advice for getting fit… is to get into a routine. Life gets busy and it’s hard to spontaneously find time during the day to drop into a class. Sticking to a routine with the same people also provides some accountability – when you don’t feel like showing up, it will be noticed!
Set aside time for yourself... and commit to your favourite classes every week. You start to see the same faces each class and it becomes fun and motivating to get to know each other and your instructor.
Give your trainer the chance to get to know you more… that way they can see your progress and really challenge you to your full potential.
To prepare for junk season... I focus on drinking more water, cleaning up my diet by focusing on lighter, fresh food, cutting out sugar and getting more sleep.
How we fuel our body… is just as important as how we move it. There are so many nutritious, healthy substitutes for not-so-healthy treats these days, so switching out some ingredients and being aware of what makes us feel energised and strong—instead of sluggish and tired—is really helpful for staying fit and happy.
