The verdict: Sleek lines, classy shades of grey and taupe, a generous 8,000sq ft space and a panoramic view of the city give Fight Hard Fitness (FHF) a fighting chance in the gym game. In fact, when we enter, we marvel at FHF’s luxurious image. You may have noticed recently that Cantopop star Pakho Chau has been endorsing the gym with his new set of pecs and abs. We’re into that. And we also like the personalised sessions here, which are supposedly based on the ‘energy’ of the ‘water, fire and earth’ elements. From what we can tell, though, it’s all mostly centred on fire because we definitely feel the burn during our ‘functional training’ session, which focuses on all areas of the body in a bootcamp-style that’s similar to crossfit. FHF also offers quality machines, a free weights area, a yoga room and a boxing ring. And, at $888 for starting membership, this high-end spot is already offering something different and reasonably priced as it goes up against the more established gyms in Hong Kong. 20/F, Soundwill Plaza 2 – Midtown, 1-29 Tang Lung St, Causeway Bay, 3955 8050; fighthard.com.hk.
