Fans of a thoroughly modern workout will be delighted by the gym at The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai, which boasts brand new equipment in an immaculately clean space. Treadmills, stationary bicycles and elliptical machines take up one half of the room and each offer personal televisions, a bottle of water, a towel and headphones. Well-organized free weights and a unique, built-in strength training system will help you bulk up. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel also offers personal training services should you need that extra push from a third party. Adjacent to the gym is a giant 82-foot swimming pool with a lifeguard on duty, and the accompanying locker rooms are just as plush with a steam room, sauna, multiple showers and all the amenities necessary to clean up after a workout. Best of all, the gym is open 24 hours to accommodate all timelines.
