We know it isn’t always fun to work out on vacation, but the amenities at The Peninsula Beverly Hills gym just might be enough to get you in gear. The gym is on the smaller size, but it’s packed with all the necessary machines, from cardio to weights, and each machine comes with its own headphones and personal TV so you can whittle your waist while catching up on your favorite shows. You’ll also find mirrors, stability balls and mats for stretching, plus newspapers and magazines to read while you work out. Hungry or thirsty? Not a problem. The gym provides bottled water, fruit-infused water, protein bars and whole fruit to munch on.
Since the gym and the spa at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel share a locker room, you’re in for more of a treat than usual in your post-workout haze. Inside the locker room you’ll find a eucalyptus-infused steam room, showers and all the amenities you could possibly need to get ready, from deodorant and shower caps to razors and shower gel. The Peninsula even provides gym wear so you can work out whether you remembered your gear or not.
Our Fitness Center, in The Spa at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, has six treadmills, three elliptical machines, three bicycles, and two stair climbers — most with built-in TVs. There are also weight machines, free weights and a stretching area.
