Mission Ride for Food

October 31, 2013

Are you ready to challenge your limits, to take excellence to the next level? Then your journey starts on level two of New World Tower 2, in a theater of power we call The Cave. Sweat and tears will glisten on your face as the music pumps louder and the lights flash like neon lightning across a sea of bikers.

You’re never alone at XYZ. The force of those around you feeds your drive. And on two special days, October 25th and 6th, through a program called Mission Ride for Food, your drive can feed the needy. Guided by talented XYZ instructors Bridge, Sandy and Rachel, your action-packed fitness experience will link you to people far from the UV glow of The Cave through the power of Foodlink Foundation.


Foodlink Foundation is a leader in the fight against hunger and poverty in Hong Kong, honing in on disenfranchisement in Hong Kong with the same vehement and indomitable spirit that XYZ brings to exercise, encouraging self-sufficiency and complete nutritional wellness through the collection of surplus and donation of food to shelters and the needy. XYZ will donate all class fees from the two sessions in support of Foodlink.

You’ll never have an opportunity like this to combine the strength and willpower you bring every day to perfecting your body and mind with the resolve to lift up those who are  in need of just this kind of dedication!

XYZ Studio

October 31, 2013

More than an exercise studio, more just a place to get fit: XYZ is Hong Kong’s first theatre of power. A place where you are the actor, the play, the audience. To the beat of music, in a covert cave in New World Tower where the brightest light radiates from deep inside you, you will push past hesitation, past reluctance, to the place where your personal energy emerges: clean, high, and lasting.

Inside this space, dimly lit, you will be greeted by a herd of 50 bikes and their riders who will be your best companions in the quest for perfection. Join this group of like-minded enthusiasts. Confront your limitations. Mount your bike. Trust your skilled and passionate instructor. Tighten your core. Now ride, ride, ride. Spin and dance your way to a new, an ultimate you.

Now you’re one of us, let us introduce you to our:

  • Full Service Locker Room, a luxurious sanctuary that welcomes you and readjusts your mood.

  • Showers, set to help your body release dopamine to your brain. A place to wash clean, and think creatively. Our motto? Think big, shower often!

  • Gel saddle bike seats, to help your gluteal muscles get a work-over and absorb the ache. Grab one as you enter the cycle studio. We’ll bill you later.

  • Special shoes, because our bikes use Look Keo pedals. (We also have triple link pedals if you prefer SDP and LOook Delta clips.) We sell shoes and clips, or rent them at $20 per class.

Remember, our changing rooms, bathrooms and showers are for your use only. All our lockers have keys for you to lock up your valuables. We do not accept responsibility for lost or stolen items.
