The 10 Best Hotel Gyms in Miami
Consider a stay at one of these hotels with a great gym if you're visiting Miami.
There was a time when the hotel gym was the size of a closet, had one treadmill and a pair of light dumbbells, and was located in a windowless room in the basement.
But that's changing.
Hotels are now racing to court fitness-minded travelers by building bigger and fancier gyms. They've realized that their guests actually care about their health and want to stay fit while they're away from home and separated from their normal fitness routines.
That's good news for us.
Some hotels have done better than others at providing a top notch fitness experience and we've picked ten of the best, most unique hotel gyms in the beautiful city of Miami.
1 Hotel South Beach
This one made our list of the ten best hotel gyms in the world and it might even be the best on that list. The South Beach Miami 1 Hotel features a Spartan Gym through a partnership with Spartan Race - the company that runs the obstacle course mud races that have become extremely popular.
The 14,000 square foot facility includes obstacles, climbing ropes, monkey bars, training classes, and outdoor workout areas.
EAST Miami is a stylish, modern, lifestyle hotel located in the Brickell City Centre area.
The hotel's gym, BEAST (Body by EAST), is in total over 20,000 square feet when including the fitness center, studios, and swimming pools.
