It’s easy to get swept up in the celebrations and merriment that naturally come with the last few months of the year — but that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until New Year to bite the health and fitness bullet. Hong Kong is home to some of the best nutritionists and sport coaches on hand to help you create life-long habits.
Whether it’s the build up to Christmas, a big birthday or simply pandemic fatigue (we’re with you), there’s always something that can put the brakes on achieving those health and fitness goals — but just because you indulged, it doesn’t mean that you have to ‘start again on Monday’ or wait until your social calendar clears. Sometimes, a little guidance and accountability goes a long way in helping you remain focused. Regardless of your goals, we’ve sourced some of the best nutritionists and sport performances coaches in Hong Kong to help tailor a plan that fits your needs, gain that competitive edge and simply feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Limitless Health: Tricia Yap
Best for: A functional medicine approach to health and fitness
One of only a handful of people in Hong Kong who is qualified in functional medicine, Limitless Health founder, Tricia Yap, strongly believes that “every person deserves to be strong, fit and healthy with a plan that suits their lifestyle.” Empowering rather than dictating goals, her functional medicine approach to health and fitness does not focus on ‘transformations’, but on achieving optimal health from a cellular level. In this way, Tricia helps individuals identify nutritional gaps, deficiencies and leverage an in-depth knowledge of gut, adrenal, thyroid, liver, cellular health and rebalance hormones. Each plan utilises technology like continuous blood sugar monitoring and clinical lab testing to identify the true root cause of an issue, and to truly personalise nutrition.
Tricia’s methodology is evident in a combination of health coaching for habit change, motivational interviewing and proven science — as well as years of practical experience.
Nutrilicious: Michelle Lau
