Personal trainers are available at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund in its pristine gym. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel opened in December 2010, so the gym itself is still fairly new (and in near-perfect condition since it’s not used by that many guests). If you want to use the Life Fitness machines but need a little guidance, you can ask the personal trainers for help. Whether or not you hire a personal trainer, be sure to take advantage of the equipment, which includes a rowing machine, bikes, elliptical machines and treadmills. In the near future, the hotel hopes to add swimming and body building classes, which will cost around RMB300 (US$48) per hour.
