Looking to stay active amidst Covid-19 induced gym closures? We found the best outdoor in-person and at-home workout classes offered by Hong Kong gyms

After two years of the pandemic, we’re no stranger to at-home workouts and WFH setups. Due to the latest wave of coronavirus, gyms have been forced to shut once again and many of us are back to the early days of our Covid-19 routine: working from home, Zoom meetings and streaming Youtube for at-home workouts. Currently, group gatherings in public places are capped at two, effective from February 10. Masks are also required for outdoor exercise and in country parks. 

If you’re finding it hard to find motivation, however, numerous Hong Kong gyms and studios are now offering online or in-person outdoor fitness classes. From online yoga classes, to outdoor CrossFit and boxing classes, here are the gyms in Hong Kong that will keep you feeling healthy throughout lockdown.
