    Cool Looking for gym buddy.

    Hi, I just got back from Canada (27,F)and I am looking for a gym buddy for weight lifting, whilst working out and sharing about fitness topics together. I have yet chosen a gym but prefer it to be located in Causeway bay/Wanchai. I am open to suggestion. I am friendly and get along with people of all ages too . This is for motivation and friendship.

    I bought one of these before for waterfall gym. Never again!

    Every time I entered the gym I was badgered by their salesman. In the end I had to be brutally honest, I told him that I had no intention of using the gym after the month had expired and he could not not change my mind.

    I second Seagulls! Join all HK fitness chains on their promotions or discounted short term memberships at your own discretion - THEY WILL PESTER YOU NONSTOP !! In my experience, even after you tell them in their face that you have no intention of signing up afterwards.
    I had their "trainers" and "PTs" shadow me 2 out of 4 times a week for 3 months convincing me to join up.

    They have driven me to ballot for use of the public facilities.....

    I tried a Physical for about a week, never got pestered by their sales people at all. I was quite surprised.

    When working out you can put on earplugs and you can just ignore anyone who is approaching you.

    Hi! I've been looking for a gym buddy too. I'm 30 and F. I go to Fitness First in Wan Chai. Not sure if you've found your gym, but if you haven't - it's worth taking a look. The gym and showering facility (with a steam room) is clean and tidy and i have never had any PT come up to me and sell me anything so in that sense, i'm very happy with them. The only downside of this gym is it is a bit small compared to some of its competitors but i'm not too bothered with it. It has everything i need.

    Please get in touch via PM if you're still looking for a gym buddy

    Gym Buddy

    Hi

    I am a member at Physical CB, and would be happy to have a gym buddy. I exercise at Victoria Park, and do Kung Fu also.

    All the best

    Try the gym at SCAA. It is in Causeway Bay. The price is fair. They have their own football team and rugby team.
