    I have joined FF at Exchange Sq. very recently. Before joining, I went to Pure too to ask about their rates. Here's a summary of what I found out.

    FF: 888 pm (6 month contract) (for all FF centres) + 6300 (for 15 PT sessions, effectively). This is the one I have taken. Penalty for breaking the contract - 1000 + one month's fee.

    Pure: 929 pm, after corporate discount (1 year contract, only IFC centre) + 500 per PT session for any number of sessions you book for the first time. After those, if you book more its much more expensive (650-750 per session). Penalty for breaking the contract - remaining months' fee.

    I found Pure very crowded during evening and slightly more expensive (PT and contract terms too), so decided to go for FF.
    HTH

    Cheers !

    And also, both of these places provide you with shorts, tshirts and towels inclusive in the price and shoe lockers for extra charge (150 pm in FF and 250 pm in Pure)

    $2100 pa at Modern Fitness. Central - women only. Other locations - mixed. Good facilities and equipment. Includes a certain number of classes: yoga, dance etc

    A bargain!!! I hesitated about posting in case the gyms get too crowded, but I'd like to see them stay in business

    Paid around 310 pm for CF. But I'm never going back there again. Got ripped off by the sales people and trainers. They sales person and trainer played a good act. Said they never offered anyone such a low rate for personal training and told me not to tell anyone. Well, they quoted me 660 HKD/1 hr session and lowered it to 550/session. I stupidly bought 30 sessions. Afterwards, I found out two of my friends were getting quoted 420 and 430/session. Flat out liars!!! Beware! They have ways of making you feel pumped up and try to get you to sign on the spur of the moment, and they will never tell you that all sales are final, no refunds what so ever. During the end of my traing sessions, the personal trainer spent the first 10-15 minutes of every session trying to convince me to buy more sessions, and started to get in a bad mood when i told him I wouldn't buy any more. One time when I declined to purchase more pt sessions again he said " This I dont like. Make me not very happy." Also during the end of my contract, he would give my preferred training time to other students and lie to me saying they are students of his manager and he had to train them, therefore giving me a rookie trainer. He was obviously lying again because that girls always trains after my session. I guess some days she wanted to train 30 mins earlier.
    Lastly, the most EXTREME case, that imho categorizes california fitness's sales people and trainers was when I was leaving Hong Kong. My personal trainer wanted to sell me 80 additional personal training classes. He said it was a lowest ever special price at 450/session that only will occure a few times/year. I had not told him i knew my friends were getting 420 to 430/session. I told him there no way in hell, I would buy 80 classes when I was leaving and not knowing when or if i'll ever come back. After a few days, on my second to last class with him. He trys to sell me 200 sessions!!! WTF!!! Just flat out shameless. He said this knowing that I might not come back to Hong Kong. I would just like to say, California Fitness is two faced. They are the nicest people to you, but are the complete opposite and treat you like dirt once they can not get any more money from you. They say they care about your body and health, but they only care about getting as much money as they can out of you. Since I always use their plastic cup to mix a protein shake, after 1 week, they started to charge me 3HKD for a plastic cup!!! While I was paying 550/trainng session. Worst gym and people ever!!! Totally different from California Fitness gyms outside of HK and 24 hour fitness.

    Hey,

    This is good reading stuff you guys got going on here, this is a great website with a smashing forum - Perfect for a guy like me moving over in a few weeks.... So Thanks,

    Anyway - Now to my question(s), i have as said been reading your discussions on this topic and just want to ask, im in to the Boxing/Muay thai scene and have been active for years back home but also enjoy the "normal" work out procedure of lifting weights... even though it can be slightly boring sometimes :-)

    So i got a few questions here, any feedback is much appreciated to settle my curiosity a bit :-)

    -Locker, i would assume most gyms offer locker service, but i was reading someones post that you could even borrow short/tshirt and stuff like that, even though that sounds a bit unfresh (I would assume it gets washed haha) - Its a great thing though, so is it like this overall?

    -Back on the whole boxing/muay thai thing, does any of the HK gym stand out with for example excellent trainers that focus on technics as well? And is sparring possible at any of the gyms?

    Will of course go around and check it out myself in a few weeks, but its nice to have some sort of idea whats what you know, I already got a pretty good picture in regards to price frame... Really good that i got the chance to got a bit more information, otherwise i would probably ended up with a 40-year contract or something...



    Cheerio

    I got a deal with Physical for 1 year, only 1000 HKD. But I think that after the year is up, it's back to their normal rates, which are 3-4x this special deal.

    I'm at Pure (Kinwick only), they have kickboxing classes (included in membership fee) 2-3 times a week. It's a good workout! If you get additional personal training with the guys that specialise in kickboxing you can spar with them.

    I pay $700 a month for membership, $650 per boxing PT (special offer if you buy the session at time of joining).

    The gym clothes are clean and pretty useful!
