I read an article here about a guy who was familiar with gyms and working out in HK. I am trying to help a HK girl that I know find a gym that has Western guys working out. She would like a trial membership. It has turned into a bit of a contest because she insists that Gyms there do not offer a trial and that the place that she works out is not what she likes. So ... does anyone there know of a gym for her to try for 10 days? 30 days or longer on a discount or trial basis? :?:

Re:HK Girl Wants to Join Western Gym

What area of HK does she live :?:

Re:HK Girl Wants to Join Western Gym

jeez...why the preference for gyms with western guys! Like that makes any difference.

She told me she lives in kwun tong area so I have forgotten where she works but that would be an area where she would want the gym.

Well, she is a Chinese woman that wants to meet some Western guys. She works with them but doesn't understand them well and if she 'works out' with them I told her that she would get over some of her 'fears' so she is willing to give it a try. It was not her idea but mine and I am just a virtual friend.

Doesn;t understand in what way. Language? Culture? Humour?
Why not go to a Chinese/[Put in nationality here since Western is too general] language exchange club instead?

Or is she just "Whiteguy-phobic"?

Re:HK Girl Wants to Join Western Gym

Ok, let me put this another way ... she wants to go to a gym where she can meet some guys that are not from HK and maybe she will like one enough to get married and move away! It would be much better than trying to internet date. I know that this happens in gyms all over the world. But forget about that ... what is the name of a local gym where she can go? All she will know about is the name of a gym, she will stop by for a trial membership and if she likes it she will stay. This is getting way too complicated.

gweilo gyms

Mitchel mate, are you sure its not you that wants to check out the gweilo gym going contingent? No worries if you are - just think its better to be up front about these things.

Still assuming its your mystery friend with the sweaty expat fetish, then the obvious places are Californias, Fitness First or that place near the escalator on Hollywood Road which used to be called New York Fitness but which is now something else - name escapes me.

Anyway, bags of bankers and lawyers in these places trying to work off their expense account business lunches. Enjoy!...errrr...I mean tell your lady friend.

Haha ... I don't know what I am doing. I have never been to HK but I will pass along the message. But my real question is will she be able to get a trial membership and save some money. I just want her to get out so a guy can find her.
