If you haven’t heard, NOW is the lightest you will weigh all year thanks to all the upcoming holiday feasts and parties:
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Several gyms have been rolling out special packages to help combat holiday weight gain and one of them is H-KORE.
If you’ve never been, H-KORE is a boutique gym in Hong Kong that offers Lagree Fitness, a series of workouts done on Megaformers (a pumped up version of the Pilates reformer). From PopSugar:
The machine uses adjustable spring-loaded resistance to allow for a customizable resistance load that is engaged via slow, deliberate movements that activate slow-twitch muscle fibers, increasing stamina and oxygen capacity of your muscles and allowing the body to burn energy for longer periods of time.
I’ve only tried H-KORE twice, as part of their intro package, but have to agree that it’s quite a good workout as all the micro-movements and instability really forces you to use muscles you normally don’t use.
Their new ‘MegaSix’ program costs HK$6,000 and includes 24 H-KORE classes (4x a week for six weeks). That’s HK$250 per class compared to the normal rate of HK$350 per class, and on top of that, the program gives you 20 percent off sports massages and stretch therapy at Joint Dynamics and healthy meal delivery company Nutrition Kitchen (read our review here).
The program starts on Halloween (Monday, 31 October) and ends right before the Christmas festivities begin (4 December) and participants must choose four workout slots per week and stick to them.
Monday – Friday: 6:30am / 9.30am / 4.30pm / 8pm
Saturday: 8am / 1pm
Sunday: 9am / 4pm
It’s always great to see gyms coming out with creative packages and we hope to see more!
