Meagan Kong is living our best life. Our dream life, really. As a professional dancer, Kong has shared the stage with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Rhianna, and of course, Queen Bey. When she’s not rehearsing, Kong is sweat-testing every studio on Classpass’ Los Angeles roster and running through the Hollywood Hills.
I mean, are you jealous yet? Wait ’til you hear this—Kong is such a versatile athlete (you know that dancers are in incredible shape, and have you ever run up Runyon Canyon? It’s hard work!) adidas tapped her to be a brand ambassador. So dreamy. But before you go on thinking that it’s all mid-morning workouts and breezy photo shoots, think again—Kong is one of the most hard-working, passionate, and dedicated people we’ve come in contact with.
She’s completely inspiring (seriously, go follow her on Instagram immediately) and she’s just as obsessed with health and wellness as we are. Kong let us in on her daily routine, dished on her favorite healthy spots in Los Angeles, and revealed her fave adidas pieces. Read on to get to know more about this rising star.
