I'm trying to gain access to the gyms / fitness rooms run by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department. (I'm resident in HK on a work visa, with a HKID.) I've been to the LCSD office in Wan Chai three times now (which has the gym I'd ideally like to use), and I'm just not able to understand the staff members' instructions, which seem to change each time I go to enquire.
I was told I need to fill out two forms (LCS637a and PAR-Q) and select this course: "Briefing on Proper Ways to Use Fitness Equipment". I was told to then drop the form into the designated box in the Wan Chai office and wait to be contacted. I waited for 2 months but was never contacted. When I went back to enquire, the boxes were gone and the staff member said that I should try another "district" or that I should just show up to the class to see if I can get in.
My two questions:
(1) Has anyone been through this process who can explain how it works?
(2) Once I pass this course, can I potentially sign up to use any of the LCSD gyms in HK, or just the one where I take the course?
I'd greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks in advance!
