Guests at The Hermitage Hotel have complimentary access to the 24-hour gym, which still has a just-built feel, as it was added to the hotel during the 2003 multi-million-dollar renovation. Keeping in line with the rest of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, the gym boasts windows that let in plenty of sunlight — perfect for keeping you going when your body doesn’t quite want to be up so early.
The Hermitage Hotel gym offers ample space for cardio, weight-training and boxing equipment, as well as floor space for additional workouts. Cardio equipment includes the standards: a stair climber, an elliptical, an exercise bike and two treadmills. But to take a little of the sting out of exercising, each of the cardio machines is paired with a large-screen HD television and headphones, which means you can distract yourself with your favorite television show. If pumping iron is your go-to, there are also weight-lifting machines and free weights. Lift in front of the mirrored wall — there’s no better way to improve your form than to watch yourself every step of the way.
When you’re done, grab a chilled towel and take a shower in the inviting locker rooms. Complimentary beverages available at the luxury Nashville hotel's gym include refreshing fresh fruit water, cucumber and mint water, and chilled bottled water. Amenities like this are enough to entice you to use the gym, even if it’s not your usual M.O.
