For Marco Polo Club members of any level residing in Hong Kong, the partnership means they will now be able to get a complimentary 10-day pass to all Pure gym locations for first-time visitors, as well as a 50 per cent discount on any joining fee thereafter, five personal training sessions (at a cost of HK$3,250), and 25 per cent off of food juice cleanses.

PureGym was launched in 2009 and pioneered the model for affordable, flexible, high-quality fitness clubs in the UK. Members pay monthly and have no contract commitment. Most of its gyms are open 24 hours a day across the UK and offer a full range of top of the line equipment including cardiovascular equipment, fixed-resistance and free weights. Each gym typically offers over 220 pieces of fitness equipment and up to 80 group exercise classes each week delivered by around 2,200 personal trainers.

It’s ok to be skeptical! Come meet the staff, and let us meet you! First, our trained staff will show you our wall of client success stories, then, we’ll do a body composition analysis. It’s very detailed and will show valuable information like your body fat percentage, muscle mass, visceral fat and your metabolic age. If time permits, you may also do a mini-trial session. It’s just a few minutes under the LED technology, but you can experience what it’s like, and see that’s it’s pain-free and very relaxing! You will then meet with the Lipolysis Consultant who will answer all your questions. Many clients can start their first session the same day! What are you waiting for? Client results vary.
Body sculpting can be used to remove excess skin/fat in the areas near neck (lower chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. The surgical procedures for these areas can take up to 10 hours for surgery and a period of 18 months to show the desired results fully. Using artificial or natural means to improve the overall physique or muscle tone is referred to as body sculpting. Hence, it is possible to tone the muscles as well according to your requirement. It has been shown in scientific studies that exercise, regular dieting, and strength training is an effective way to change your body.

CoolSculpting is unique in that it is the only method of fat loss that utilizes freezing technology. Other methods involve the use of heat, and include ultrasound energy, lasers, and radiofrequency. CoolSculpting is more effective in removing fat and does so with more comfort than these other modalities. CoolSculpting is, in fact, the world’s leading technology for the noninvasive reduction of localized collections of excess fat.

You just have to take it as it is. It isn't great, but you're paying at least £30 less than other city centre gyms. Unfortunately, this means that less 'nice' people frequent, and the changing rooms are pretty awful. The machines are also usually littered with well, litter, and aren't that clean. If I could afford to go elsewhere, I really think I would. But I can't. *sigh*.
Now here are a couple more facts: We all have many billions of fat cells. In fact, the number of fat cells that we have, and the distribution of those cells are both pretty much fixed from very early in life (around one year in age). The reason that different people have different shapes is that their fat cells are distributed differently. The woman with disproportionately wide outer thighs has more fat cells in that area, and therefore she perceives it as a stubborn disproportion. One man may have a relative ‘hill’ of fat cells under his chin; another in his love handles, and so on.
The research reported that patients who underwent bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery on the stomach and/or intestines) who waited about a year before undergoing body-contouring surgery saw a reduction in the complication rate -- and ended up with shorter hospital stays. The researchers also reported that waiting allowed the death rate to drop dramatically, from 14% for those who had body-contouring surgery soon after losing the weight, to 0% for those who waited.
Body sculpting is pretty fresh on the scene. In 2008, two Harvard-affiliated scientists founded the idea of selective cryolosis—the process of freezing fat cells and killing them, eliminating stubborn body fat. The hypothesis that cold temperatures could kill fat came from one interesting observation. Children who sucked on popsicles often developed dimples, indicating that cold temperature could eliminate fat cells, leaving little “pockets.” Weirdly, body sculpting sort of mimics popsicle sucking.
Fat-dissolving and skin-tightening procedures for body contouring that are less invasive can seem oh-so-appealing when weighed against other options, such as liposuction. Some of the latest innovations include mesotherapy (lipodissolve), which involves the injection of various cocktails into the skin to dissolve fat, Thermage (also known as Thermacool or Thermalift), which uses radiofrequency to tighten facial skin for a "nonsurgical" face-lift, and LipoSonix, which uses high-intensity ultrasound to target and destroy fat cells.
Issues. They are very busy in the evenings, which is the best time for me, and clearly everyone else to go. This often leads to long waits for machines and equipment, also for the showers. As someone that doesn't gym often, I find gyms intimidating, with no staff to turn to for help, pure gym can be a little scary and confusing if you haven't planed what you are there to do in advance. Also some of the clientele can be boisterous, especially if you look a little lost! There is often issues with things being stolen in the locker rooms, I would advise keeping all your belongings locked up and out of sight just to be safe.

Meanwhile, all Gold and Diamond Marco Polo Club members regardless of their country of residence will now be eligible for one-day access passes to any Pure Fitness centre, or enrolment in any class at a Pure Yoga studio in Hong Kong. These must coincide with either the day of arrival or the day immediately after, with a total of 12 one-day/class access passes permitted in a single calendar year.
Results will be visible within the first 3-4 weeks and will continue to impress in the months that follow. At 2-4 months, most clients will see their full outcomes on display. According to the FDA, a CoolSculpting treatment reduces the amount of fat by an average of 20-25% in the area treated. With repeated CoolSculpting sessions, this number can climb. Be sure to schedule a follow up visit following your treatment to assess your results.

When diet and exercise efforts have been tried, tried again, and then exhausted, it can feel as achieving your dream figure is completely out of reach. However, modern medical technology and micro-body contouring techniques can open the doors that were once blocked by frustration and discouragement. Physicians at Athenix use these top three procedu...

As of 24/09/18 PureGym has taken over what was once Soho! In Lewisham where I have been a member of ...for years! And was very happy with the level of service and facilities. Launch day there was pure gym staff everywhere in the gym but no one to assist those of us that had problems getting in with the new pin method! Before it was just a finger print! Once in the gym... I always wipe down the machines before and after I use them only to find all the tissues and hygiene sprays had all been removed! When asked a member of staff I was told they don’t provide it and I need to bring my own!!! How unhygienic!
