The gym at The Peninsula Shanghai is almost always empty, leaving you with your pick of the brand-new equipment that’s in tip-top shape. All of the machines overlook a small park, providing a welcome bit of green as you grunt and sweat. Use the exercise balls and yoga mats to stretch out, or work on your physique with the free weights. For a cardio session, hop on the one of the Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical machines and StairMasters — all come with individual television sets. If you need exercise help, sign up for the one-on-one personal training sessions at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Should you need water, Gatorade or a snack during your workout, the concierge desk at the gym will provide the goods to keep you energized.
