built for a purpose

ursus in the making

URSUS started with business partners Gary & Santina running outdoor Strongman classes around Lamma Island & Cyberport. After having garnered a dedicated following, the pair decided to start up a permanent gym space in Sai Ying Pun.

URSUS has since expanded its range of classes to offer Boxing & Muay Thai classes and in 2019, Olympic Weightlifting classes.

BUILD. SWEAT. HUSTLE.

OUR VISION

what's next
for ursus?

Our ultimate goal has always been to support Hong Kong's fitness industry and make a positive impact. By instilling the importance of fitness into people's lives, we can help bring communities together.

 

2019 was our busiest year yet and we proudly hosted 2 amazing competitions, our first ever Olympic Weightlifting Competition & our most popular event, Fight Night which attracted more than 200 spectators.
