Opened in 2012, Prime Fitness was doing functional training before it got trendy. You won't find any treadmills here. Instead, the idea inside this personal training studio is that doing workouts with natural movement patterns (pushing, pulling, throwing, jumping) during one-on-one session and group classes like HIIT and Boot Camp will lead to the best results. You may not see any machines when you walk in but don't be fooled, you're about to sweat heavy regardless.

The perks Small class sizes mean you get more personalised attention from coaches.

The price A half hour of solo personal training costs 350RMB with a senior trainer, or 500RMB with a master trainer. For partner training, you can get 30 minutes from 450RMB; group training for 45 minutes is 150RMB per person. Add WeChat ID 'PrimeBeYourBest' for more info.
