The 10 Best Hotel Gyms in Las Vegas
Consider a stay at one of these hotels with a sweet gym if you’re visiting Sin City.
When you think about Sin City, fitness is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.
Self-indulgence usually ranks a bit higher on everyone's list of priorities but that doesn't mean you have to neglect your fitness all together.
Even though most of us go to Las Vegas to party and have a good time, it's important to not forget about your health. The fact is, maintaining a fitness routine while visiting a city as crazy as Las Vegas can be a great way to enjoy yourself even more (you'll have more energy).
And let's not forget about the many people who visit Las Vegas for shows and conferences every year and have no interest in abandoning their gym habits.
Many of the hotels and resorts on the Strip have gone to great lengths to ensure you have an exceptional fitness facility available to you during your stay.
Las Vegas has some of the best hotel gyms in the world, so this wasn't easy.
