Hot off the heels of the global launch of W Hotels and international yoga rebel Tara Stiles’ collaboration earlier in June, W Hong Kong continues to take on a modern and dynamic approach to fitness by announcing today the exclusive launch of its new FIT membership program, being the first hotel in Hong Kong to include in its fitness and personal trainer series the “Technogym Wellness Active Ball (Wellness Ball)”, a combination of technology and fit ball. To celebrate the program’s debut, guests who purchase the FIT membership with full price from now to November 30, 2015 can take home one “Wellness Ball” valued HKD4,000 and enjoy 5 “Technoball – hot off the stress” personal training sessions for free as welcome gifts.
“Innovation has long been a core value at W Hong Kong”, said Jane Wang, bliss Spa Director of W Hong Kong. “With this opportunity to marry high tech and fitness, we have transformed the wellness experience in an exciting way that celebrates the body and provides 24/7 access to an interactive workout.”
The rocking highlight: “Technogym Wellness Active Ball (Wellness Ball)
“Technogym Wellness Active Ball”, also known as the “Wellness Ball”, is a high-end product that adds a stylish touch to any space, where users can work or rest in comfort while training their back and core muscles for better posture and stability at the same time.
What sets this ball apart from the crowd is its technological component. The ball’s handle features a QR code which can be scanned to access a database of training programs designed for the “Wellness Ball”. After answering a set of questions about your health status, users can connect with the “My Wellness” app to gain access to a list of specifically programmed work-outs and video tutorials. Users can also sync the app up with their Outlook schedule to organize workout times and set up reminders in order to reach their goals.
On top of this, the lower part of the ball is made of high-density material for greater stability and to prevent it from rolling around, ensuring more safety. And a specially developed material is used on the underside to prevent slipping. The cover is made of multilayered fabric, with a support lining and breathable, anti-bacterial honeycomb material, typically used in running shoes. It can be machine washed at 30°C to guarantee the greatest level of hygiene.
The rocking trainer: Rabi Tamasing
With recognizable qualifications from Advanced Personal Training Certification, Sports Science and Fitness Foundation Certification to Muay Thai Instructor Certification and extensive experience in boxing, karate and Muay Thai, Rabi Tamasing is all set to take fitness to a whole new level with the FIT membership program.

So here comes the personal trainer, who will teach you how to exercise safely and effectively in detail”, said Rabi. “Now with the new addition and the hotel’s passion for wellness, I am sure we will be able to assist guests to reach higher goals.”
