Reading Time: 3 minutesHong Kong is renowned for its fitness fundis, but it’s never too early to get the kids interested in being healthy, making the AIA Vitality Hub a perfect addition to the scene. The hub, a venue hosting health and wellness classes, aims to enrich the lives of guests through free and accessible activities and classes. Read on for everything you need to know about the hub, including the classes you can expect to find.
The AIA Vitality Hub, housed by the iconic Central Harbourfront, and adjacent to the AIA Observation Wheel and AIA Vitality Park, ultimately wants to improve the life of all those in Hong Kong. As residents are well aware, fitness and wellness classes can be incredibly expensive and inaccessible, which is why the hub is completely free to all attendees!
The AIA Vitality Hub is right in front of the AIA Observation Wheel.
The programme at the AIA Vitality Hub consists of classes for all demographics and abilities, from children to the elderly, and from beginner to experienced. Designed and run by some of the city’s leading wellness and fitness industry professionals, the classes develop mobility and agility, as well as strength and mindfulness. The hub will also host talks on nutrition and wellness.
There are rugby classes that will teach kids how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team, dance classes, Kids Acro Yoga by MOVE Studio and Brazilian football, among many others. Classes will be run by top trainers, including Tottenham Hotspur coach Shannon Maloney and Ben Cullen, director of Rugbytots.
Adults can also get in on the fun, with capoeira, yoga, running clubs, Zumba and HIIT classes. Expect to be taught by top-class Hong Kong athletes, including ultramarathon runner and coach Wong Chun Kiu, Nike trainer and Co-founder of MiU Training Hub George Iu, Director of YogaUP Chau Kei Ngai and Kennedy Lau, Founder of Newly Emerging Sports Association. Nutritionists and dieticians from PURE Nutrition will also run regular health talks.
Unable to enjoy the AIA Vitality Hub in person? No problem. The hub will create both offline and online content about fitness and wellness education, for people to freely access when they want.
