At HK FitLife, we aim to spread the Fitness movement throughout Hong Kong. On top of providing great content, we promote local businesses that have the mission of helping people achieve their fitness goals.
The fitness community is all about progress, and we all need each other to continually grow.
We want to introduce Versus Performance. This is their story:
When did Versus Performance start and how did it come about?
We started in 2010. The idea was developed when Quinton caught the swine flu in 2009, when we realised how fragile his life as a trainer can be. We wanted to create something more sustainable and being able to realise our visions the way we want to.
What is your vision for the business?
To sum it all up, we want to provide ‘Professional training in a clean, safe and friendly environment’ but behind that, we hope to Versus can be somewhere students can meet and train with like-minded people, help and offer other freelance trainers options, help underprivileged local and minority youths through training to build self-confidence and offer opportunities for alternative career paths and of course, ultimately be a top fighting gym in Hong Kong.
What sets you apart from your competitors?
Quinton is considered one of the pioneers of MMA in his home country South Africa (he started around the mid-90s), aside from his skills, his genuinely love and life-long experience in martial arts makes him a continuous learner, willing to transfer his knowledge to students without holding back.
We are one of the rare medium-sized gyms with no external financial backing. Being a husband-and-wife team means we can operate in a way that we can stay true to our goals. Our members like us because we are not commercially-driven, offering authentic training without the ego and everyone is respectful.
We have no contracts, which may not be the smartest business move, but it doesn’t feel right to us to charge people when they haven’t gained anything.
What do you believe is the hardest thing for people in regards to fitness?
Just getting to the gym, the mental block is hard to break through, but once you’re done, you’ll be glad you went.
What do you believe is the most important thing for your clients?
Learning real skills and techniques from people who have been through it, not copycats or youtube rip-offs. Personal development and a supportive environment to nurture this growth, nothing worse than training with people you dislike.
How much is membership?
Group classes start at $150 (for 30 classes) and unlimited monthly passes at $1500.
What’s your address?
5th Floor Workington Tower, 78 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan
