The Peninsula Beverly Hills Spa has a gym located inside that is available for hotel guests only. The gym is open from 5 a.m. for the early-risers and until 11 p.m. for the night owls. Recently renovated, the gym offers a variety of Technogym cardio machines, including six treadmills, three ellipticals, three cycling bikes and a wave machine so you can work up a sweat. Each offers a built-in TV for watching shows or listening to music. The TV screen changes so you can also keep tabs on how much time you have left, how many calories you worked off, your resistance and more. You’ll also find a weight station stocked with a variety of weight-lifting machines, six-pound medicine balls, tension bands, foam rollers, balance balls, and hand weights that range from three to 80 pounds.
Personal trainers are available for training within the gym as well as or yoga and Pilates instruction. Just speak with the staff at the spa or the concierge at the hotel to set that up.
If you’re working out in the fitness center, you can also use the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa’s locker rooms, located to the left of the front entrance of the Spa’s front door. Pop into the eucalyptus-infused steam room to sweat out any toxins and use the towels and other amenities that you need inside. Forgot your workout clothes? Don’t worry about it. The hotel has some for you to rent — from tops and shorts to gym shoes and socks.
