Tucked inside the New World Tower in the Central district of Hong Kong, XYZ is designed to feel like a hidden cave—a place to escape everyday life and "reset one’s compass." The studio facilitates a cult of serious indoor cyclists who push the boundaries of mediation during 50-minute rides. Founder Belinda Koo believes in "changing the culture of wellness by adding fine measures of creativity and entertainment." Also part of the experience: Zen-like changing rooms and personalized attention from well-trained instructors whose absorbing playlists draw from ’80s, ’90s, pop, rock, house, hip-hop, and classical tunes.
