Hey! 2018

See ya in March!

2017 has been a great year and also a challenging year, from educating instructors, finding good workout venues to building a lasting model for Heyrobics. We are trying all kinds of ways to provide better workout experience for everyone and make the community more alive.

As we know that a short water break is really important during a Hey session, therefore we will take a “ water” break from now until early March 2018, recharge ourself and adjust the sailing course, then restart from March STRONG and with a bigger smile!


If you have any suggestions, or know any people, group, brands we should hook up, or just wanna help out, feel free to call, email or wechat us!


Cheers/Keep sportin’
