Follow in HONG KONG via Lifestyle ASIA
Besides being an endless stream of sinful #foodporn, fashionable #OOTDs and look-at-me #selfies, Instagram is also a great place to get healthy inspiration (aka. #fitspo) on a daily basis, especially if you’re trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Nowhere is it harder to be healthy than hedonistic Hong Kong — the land of dim sum, happy hours and champagne brunches — which is why we’re glad these 10 healthy Instagram accounts exist. Follow for daily fitspiration, workout ideas, healthy food recipes and more.
Buff personal trainer Arnold runs Arnz Fitness Movement (aka. AFM), a ‘Hong Kong based platform focused on fitness, nutrition and healthy lifestyle education and coaching.’ On his feed, you’ll find professionally shot photos of his crew and clients working out against the Hong Kong skyline that are sure to induce #workoutenvy (yes, it’s a thing).
Smoothie bowls, raw desserts and colorful vegan platters are all shot beautifully by food photographer Angie, a self proclaimed ‘HK-based vegan and plant-based runner.’ If you think healthy food looks and tastes like cardboard, head to this feed to be proven (very) wrong.
Fit, flexible and fashionable to boot, Morgan Guth is the whole package. Currently a yoga teacher and spinning instructor at XYZ, she also runs The Well Dressed Workout, a fitness x fashion blog where she stars in the most amazing stretching, bending and jumping photos. Follow her feed for cool, edgy, athleisure looks you’ll definitely want to copy.
#nevernotrunning is the best way to describe Hilary Tsui, co-founder of local fashion brand Liger, Nike ambassador and all-around fashion icon. It’s not uncommon to see her running up, down and around the entire Hong Kong island (no exaggeration), with plenty of running buddies to boot. If anyone makes running look good, Hilary’s it.
Karen Holt runs the Health Seed, a women’s guide to healthy living and wellness in Hong Kong. We love the soft and dreamy filters she uses on the many healthy eats, smoothies and greens on her feed. Follow for healthy recipes and her upcoming localised wellness guides.
Long, lean and sculpted, Emi Wong’s enviable bikini bod (those abs though) took much hard work and dedication to create, which are proven by plenty of before-and-after snaps. Now a Sista Active sponsored athlete who has started a yoga journey, follow her for plenty of healthy food inspo and impromptu workouts on the beach.
As if running the city’s hottest restaurants (Yardbird, Ronin, Sunday’s Grocery, etc.) wasn’t enough, the multi-talented Lindsay Jang is also a yoga teacher, fitness trainer and co-founder of MISSBISH, a hip new women’s fashion mag and online store. Her feed is full of workout inspiration including amazing yoga poses in unexpected Hong Kong spots, including the beach, MTR and poolside.
If anyone knows health and wellness, it’s Vivienne Tang, editor of AsiaSpa magazine. Follow her feed for high-definition pictures of herself hiking through Hong Kong (and the amazing views that come with it), stretching it out at barre classes and jet-setting off to the most amazing resorts around the world — all in the name of work.
Sonalie Galardi-Este runs Green Queen, a healthy and organic living guide in Hong Kong with over 1,000 listings and regular green-related features. Discover new local healthy eats on her Instagram feed along with homemade goodies that you’ll want to replicate in your own kitchen.
Co-founder of BikiniFit, Hong Kong’s massively popular outdoor workout program for women, Tricia Yap inspires us with pictures from BikiniFit’s grueling workouts (complete with evil trainer poses), her personal challenges and races, plus hilarious photos of her three cats — Shogun, Saki and Genji.
