All you really need in a gym are a few key pieces of equipment—free weights, a medicine ball, a cable machine (and a hex bar if you’re lucky). And, sure, that simple list will get the job done. But minimal equipment in an ordinary space sure as hell won’t inspire you to have an extraordinary workout (or come back for more). We expect more from gyms.
That’s why studios, hotels, and private gyms all over the globe are taking note of what guests really want in a fitness facility—an oasis, a next-level personal training space, an all-in-one holistic experience. Bottom line: Everyone wants some crazy amenities, whether they’re booking a class or buying a membership.
From indoor ice climbing gyms to Olympic-sized outdoor heated pools, in-house nutritionists to on-demand massages, these 16 luxurious gyms are ready to service your every fitness desire no matter where you are in the world.
Get ready to have some serious gym envy.
