Spiked Roller Massager in Use!We had a great time at the Sports Soho event this year - we met lots of great people and saw some fantastic presentations. We were particularly impressed by the Hong Kong Aerial Arts Academy. 

With lots of runner in attendance, the massage and myofascial release products were in high demand - in particular, the T8 Spiked Roller massager was a big hit! For those of you that suffer from aches and pains in your legs or knees as a result of running, you might want to make sure you get yourself a foam roller or a roller massager - they are extremely versatile and superb for releasing tension in the muscles. You can find out downloadable user guide here.

For experienced runners looking for that extra edge, here is a great article from Iso Fit on Pilates for running with a specific focus on running uphill.

Looking forward to taking part next year!

Exercise at Home - what products should I have to get a good all round workout?


The best equipment to have at home can be as simple as a kettlebell set, some resistance bands/tubes, a foam roller and a fitball. A suitably weighted kettlebell can be used to perform an amazing full body workout which will shed pounds while building muscle. Starting simply with kettlebell swings can really get the heart pumping. The resistance bands are fantastically versatile and allow you to perform any number of resistance exercises that can either be part of a workout or just used for flexibility and stretching, Finally, and often over looked, the foam roller is a vital tool to have in the home. So many exercises can be performed using a foam roller but its biggest strength is in massage and pain relief. Using the foam roller for just 5 mins a day can significantly remove tension that often plagues people without them really understanding it!

Depending on space and budget, other good cardio, calorie burning options are an exercise bike or a cross trainer.....READ MORE

Check out our interview in the Luxehomes section of the South China Morning Post - working out at home is really not a problem!! 

Ash Wayburne, director of T8 Fitness in Hong Kong, says home gyms are flexible. "There are many options when it comes to working out at home. In Hong Kong, flexibility is key, as everybody has busy schedules.

"Being able to do a full body workout at home is a massive benefit. It also means that exercise is always available, and can easily become part of your daily routine.

"We know everybody is busy. We have products that can be used at home, on the road, or even at the office - there are no excuses. We try our best to combine quality and affordability, while taking into account the fact that most people do not have much space in Hong Kong."

Wayburne has seen the fitness equipment sector in Hong Kong go from strength to strength. "People are looking for alternative options to conventional workouts - whether it be something like Pilates, boot-camp style workouts, or working out at home. Space is still a barrier in Hong Kong, but people are becoming much more aware of their health and, more importantly, are prepared to do something about it."
