Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai offers personal training at its gym and pool. A trainer is on standby, so you don’t need to book one too far in advance. The gym is large and gets plenty of light from its wall of windows, which also offer top city views from all the machines. You’re likely to have your pick of equipment at the gym — when we visited, there was just one other person working out (we had plenty of elbow room, considering the space can accommodate about 50 people). In addition to Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical machines and bikes, there are also free weights, yoga mats and exercise balls. If you prefer to take your workout outside, you’ll have access to tennis coaches, who can be hired to give lessons to adults and teens. No need to bring your own equipment — the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel will provide all your balls and rackets.
