You’ll likely get a workout traipsing through the hilly streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, but should you want to add a little more fitness to your daily routine, head to the gym at Kowloon Shangri-La. The fully staffed, L-shaped fitness center is located on the ground floor of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and overlooks the indoor swimming pool. It’s a small space but a functional one with all the basics: seven treadmills, five bicycles, a rowing machine and four elliptical machines, each including personal TV sets with a surprisingly large number of English-language channels in addition to the Chinese ones. You can also work your abs and glutes with the Life Fitness strength training equipment, or, if you’d prefer, with the yoga ball or aerobic steps located in the corner of the room. The pool is better for paddling than swimming laps since it’s not much larger than the hot tub next to it, but you’ll find it a refreshing way to cool down. Or if you’d like to heat up post-workout, make a beeline for the locker rooms, where you’ll discover both a steam room and sauna. The gym itself (though not the whole Health Club) is open 24 hours a day, ensuring a workout whenever the mood strikes.
