For the music mavens or those who find traditional gyms a bit stale comes a fitness concept already taking the USA and UK by storm. Enter LIGHTS//OUT, a boxing club with a difference: think party atmosphere, energetic soundtracks and immersive lighting more akin to Macau’s superclubs than your average gym. So what’s the difference between this and hitting the town on a Friday night? The fun-focussed, high-intensity boxing classes that will make you sweat like no dance floor has.
“Boxing-based workouts have been gaining popularity around the world due to boxing’s incredible cardio and full-body conditioning power,” says LIGHTS//OUT Founder Billy Tam. “With LIGHTS//OUT we want to introduce Hong Kong fitness fans to an exciting new way of working out that incorporates not just boxing but also elements of Strength and Conditioning, HIIT, and AMRAPS, in an environment where their senses are totally immersed in the experience and they can let go and have fun while pushing themselves to their limits.”
The sleek studio offers 45-minute classes six days a week at their new space in Causeway Bay. The classes are expertly designed with eight rounds of alternating boxing on Aqua Bags and floor workouts that gradually increase in intensity to give you a powerfully efficient full-body workout. Every section focuses on a different cardio skill or muscle, and follows the rhythm of specially selected soundtracks.
The boxing gym’s Programme Director Sandy Sydney, formerly of XYZ, says, “At LIGHTS//OUT you are welcomed like family, and everything from the carefully considered music playlists, to the ever-changing immersive lighting, to the class programmes, are designed to help you focus and lose your inhibitions so that you can freely push and challenge yourself as much as you want.”
The LIGHTS//OUT studio is equipped with state-of-the-art audio and visual systems, nine Aqua punching bags, and nine fully-loaded floor stations to accommodate up to 18 members per class. Located in the bright and airy Warrior Hong Kong space, LIGHTS//OUT members have access to premium locker rooms, showers and changing facilities to cool-off post-sweat session.
LIGHTS//OUT offers a variety of packages to suit your schedule and fitness goals starting with a five-class package at HKD270 per class. Trial classes are available at HKD150.
