     Japanese personal training company RIZAP announced today (June 1) that its first private gym will open next Monday (June 8) in downtown Central, offering high-end wellness training programmes to customers.

     The new gym will offer one-on-one services to customers with personalised training programmes fitting individuals' needs, according to the Director of RIZAP Hong Kong Limited, Mr Jun Sato. He added that all training will be conducted in private rooms, offering a level of privacy unavailable in traditional gyms in town.

     Mr Sato said, "For RIZAP, Hong Kong presents a very dynamic market with a diverse cluster of customers who are highly health-conscious. Opening our studio in the heart of Central also offers convenience in terms of location for executives who are busy but need quality body-building training nearby."

     He added, "In Japan, our clientele has grown significantly over the past two years, because of the privacy we offer for customers. We see the same demand for safe, secure and efficient personal training services in Hong Kong. I think that we also set ourselves apart from conventional gyms with our life-long partnership commitment with customers. We are always there to support them on their roads to health and body-building."

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Mr Jimmy Chiang said, "Hong Kong has a fast-paced lifestyle and its citizens focus on health and a quality lifestyle. That's why Hong Kong is an ideal location for premium fitness companies like RIZAP that seek to expand their business globally from Hong Kong."


     RIZAP started its personal training gym and opened its first gym centre in Japan in 2012. It provides personalised programmes using training methods based on scientific evidence and diets based on nutritional science. It aims to create a strong, committed bond with each customer to establish a lifetime relationship. For more information, please visit
