Working out during your lunch break is a great way to stay fit, make the most of your time and ease the pressures of the working day. Whether you’re into yoga, resistance training or spin classes, there’s something for you in Quarry Bay. And with H-Kore opening a studio in Taikoo Place in October, now intense core workout is an option too. Here’s our pick of the top five places for a lunchtime sweat session.


Hardcore reformer
This is not your average fitness class – H-Kore lives up to its name. Get ready for a 45 minute Lagree Fitness session on a specially designed Megaformer machine that will work some rare muscles.

They also have hour-long kids' classes during holidays, so you can get a workout in while the kids are learning new skills. Hour-long adult classes are $250 and hour-long kids' classes are $200. 12/F, Dorset House, Taikoo Place, 2762 0528,
