Joining fitness centres is a great way for teens to improve their physical and mental health, but you do need to make sure they’re in safe hands. From boxing classes at Ursus Fitness and Swish to aerial yoga at Flex, we’ve rounded up the best fitness classes and gyms in Hong Kong for teens!
Looking for ways to fight your teens’ boredom? One way to help them is to get them moving again. Whether or not they are into sports, fitness centres are a great addition to your teen’s schedule. Increase endorphin production (the chemical that makes you happier), provide a much-desired immunity boost, and most importantly, give them something productive to do! That said, not all Hong Kong gyms are open to teens, especially the younger ones, so we’ve rounded up a variety of options that range from Muay Thai to CrossFit and cater to all teens.
URSUS Fitness – Fitness centre offering Muay Thai, boxing and more
Founded by fitness lovers Gary and Santina who started their journey teaching outdoor classes on Lamma Island and Cyberport, URSUS offers resistance and circuit training, boxing and Muay Thai group fitness classes for all ages and levels (including teens!) There are various package options available for teens; drop in to try a class for $200 or opt for the unlimited package with 1-month expiry for $2,700 and 3-month expiry for $7,100.
Pause – Hong Kong gym offering aerial yoga classes for teens

Asphodel Fitness – Crossfit fitness classes for kids and teens
Crossfit for teens? Why not! Asphodel Fitness has programmes specifically suited for kids and teens. Similar to adult classes, these classes last a full hour but are tailored to help them learn how to carefully and thoughtfully weight train as they grow.

This training is done in a fun and inclusive environment to keep your teens excited and motivated and make them feel like they belong.
Espada Studio – Jiu-Jitsu and MMA fitness classes for teens of all ages
As one of the premier fighting gyms in Hong Kong, Espada focuses on training their students, regardless of age, to become champions on and off the mat. They currently offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to teens of all ages and also offer a free trial class to let your teen decide which is best.
Anahata Yoga – Yoga flow for teens
Since yoga is meant to be a life-long practice, Anahata Yoga invites all teens to join their adult classes but specifies the type of yoga they should start with based on their current level of fitness and yoga experience.
